2011 Audi S4 Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID947605
 Internal NHTSA #10481521
 Model Year2011
 File date09/10/12
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThis issue concerns my audi 2011 s4, a car that i took delivery on in april, 2011. I have had numerous problems with the car since the delivery, however, it is a safety concern that has caused this specific filing. The problem seems to be with the dsg transmission. On occasion, the car will struggle and "buck" in low gears at a very slow speed (or froma complete stop) upon acceleration. This does not happen often but it has happened several times since taking delivery. I have tried addressing the problem with audi coral springs in the past but because i cannot duplicate the problem, they are unable to help. Consequently, i have not been able to always drive the car in the manner that i would like to. However, on october 9, 2012, the problem happened again, only this time, it occurred while attempting to merge into traffic. I was in a merge lane, traveling approx 3-5 mph and when the opportunity arose, i accelerated into the traffic. At that precise moment, the car bucked violently (as it has done in the past) and i had to lift off the throttle to correct the issue. Let me express that i in no way am attempting to cause problems for audi. I am only concerned for my safety. Its quite conceivable that when my car has this trouble while merging into traffic that i could get hit from behind as i must immediately lift off the accelerator to resolve the issue.
