Is my '02 A4q an unusual piece of junk, or just a piece of junk?

My experience (both with car and dealer) have been okay so far. I guess
the only defense of your car, Jonathan, is that you have the first year of
a substantially reworked car... Personally, I try to avoid doing that -
especially since our '99 Ford Windstar (sunstantially new at the time) is
such a piece of crap.... I do have 2 recurring issues - the glove box door
latch gets cantankerous in very cold weather, allowing the door to flop
open, and my airbag light comes on and off at different times under
different circumstances. I will report these to my dealer (Princeton Audi)
for the second time when I bring it in for the 15k service in the next
couple of weeks.
