Summary of Complaint

MY PASSENGER WINDSHIELD WIPER FLEW OFF WHILE I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. IT WAS RAINING PRETTY HARD AND THE AUTOMATIC WIPERS WERE GOING PRETTY FAST WHEN SUDDENLY IT SNAPPED OFF AND FLEW BEHIND ME. THIS HAPPENED ON MAY 17, 2018. THE DEALER I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE FROM REPLACED IT WITH ANOTHER Q7'S WIPER THAT WAS ON THEIR LOT. THIS HAPPENED AGAIN ON 11/06/2018... I WAS AROUND THE SAME AREA OF THE HIGHWAY, IT WAS RAINING AND THE WIPERS WERE GOING PRETTY FAST. I WAS GOING ABOUT 50 MILES PER HOUR WHEN IT FLEW OFF AGAIN. I THINK THIS IS VERY UNSAFE AS THE WHOLE ARMS FLIES OFF WHICH IS MADE OF HEAVY METAL THAT CAN CRACK SOMEONE'S WINDSHIELD ON THE HIGHWAY OR EVEN WORSE. THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING AND MAKING TURNS I WATER COMES OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE DASHBOARD. IT COMES OUT ON BOTH THE DRIVE AND PASSENGER SIDE DEPENDING ON WHICH WAY I'M TURNING. I HAVE REPORTED THIS TO AUDI AND HAVE READ ABOUT OTHER OWNERS EXPERIENCING THE SAME THING. WHAT I HAVE FOUND OUT IS THAT IT IS A DRAIN PROBLEM. THE PIPING IS CRIMPED DUE TO THE TYPE OF MATERIAL IT IS MADE OUT OF. THIS IS VERY UNSAFE WHEN IT COMES OUT OF THE DRIVER SIDE BECAUSE NOT ONLY IS IT SHOCKING WHILE DRIVING TO HAVE WATER SPLASHED ON YOU, BUT ALSO BECAUSE THE FLOOR IS NOW WET WHERE THE BREAK AND GAS PEDALS ARE LOCATED.

THE TIRES HAD BEEN WELL MAINTAINED BY ROTATING AND BALANCING EVERY 3,500 MILES AND TIRE INFLATION PROPERLY MAINTAINED. THE WEATHER WAS CLEAR AND DRY. I HAD BEEN DRIVING FOR ABOUT 2.5 HOURS WHEN THE INCIDENT OCCURRED. I WAS ABLE TO STEER THE CAR TO THE EMERGENCY LANE AND CALL FOR ASSISTANCE TO CHANGE TIRE TO SPARE. UPON EXAMINATION, THE INSIDE EDGE OF THE TIRE THE STEEL BELT CAME THROUGH THE TIRE AND CAUSED BLOWOUT. THE OUTSIDE EDGE OF TIRE DID NOT SHOW THE WEAR THAT THE INSIDE EDGE SHOWED AND HAD NOT BEEN READILY NOTICEABLE UPON VISUAL INSPECTION EARLIER IN THE DAY. THE TIRES HAD JUST BEEN ROTATED, BALANCED AND ALIGNED 1 MONTH PRIOR AND THERE WAS A NOTATION TO MONITOR THE TREAD BAR AS THE FRONT TIRES WERE WEARING FASTER THAN THE BACK TIRES (THE CAR IS ALL WHEEL DRIVE). I HAD BEEN DOING A VISUAL INSPECTION OF THE TIRES EACH TIME I GOT IN THE CAR AND HAD NOT NOTICED THAT THE INSIDE EDGE OF THE LEFT FRONT TIRE WAS WEARING UNEVENLY FROM THE OUTSIDE EDGE.
