Re: audi bashing again
Speaking of steering. What is the problem with Audi's steering?
I know the steering rack on my audi 90 was replaced when I bought it
used with about ~50K miles on it. I might add that was at a great expense
to Audi. I remember that the response of the service lady was that she had
not seen a 90 with this problem but she said that it was
common on 5000. Is there anything that can be checked or done
to prevent the steering rack from going bad.
I have notice that my car makes a hollow sound barely audible when I make a
turn. This is most audible at slower speed. Is this an indication of
steering rack or servotronic on its way out the door? Inquiring minds
want to know....
Have a nice weekend
