Audi A6L First in Luxury Car Complaints

Audi’s A6L was ranked first in the "luxury car complaint ranking list" conducted by China Securities Journal and the car complaints network. The survey was conducted between November 18th and 24th. Other luxury cars that made the list include the BMW 5 Series, Jeep Compass and another Audi, the A4L.

Reportedly, the Audi A6L had a total of 27 complaint cases during the period, with focus being placed on issues with the gearbox, pumps, headlights, insufficient engine oil and other core problems. Though the data released by the survey is not official in nature, Audi has not yet addressed these problems or issue a recall. Last year Audi sold 150,000 vehicles in the Chinese market and is expected to break the 200,000 sales figure this year.

The Volvo S Class is a newcomer to the list, coming in 8th after it kicked the Mercedes Benz S Klasse out of the top ten. When it comes to Chinese manufacturers, Great Wall Motors, with 251 complaint cases, surpassed Dongfeng Nissan’s 249 complaints to come in sixth place.

Great Wall received 17 more complaints than it did last time the survey was made. This is largely due to a number of issues with the Teng Yi C30 car, such as reduction of components, air conditioning and refrigeration problems, occurrence of abnormal sound/shaking (when the engine is cold), and other common problems.

Below is the "top ten luxury car complaint ranking list" conducted during November 18-24:

1. Audi A6L 27
2. BMW 5 Series 23
3. Audi A4L 20
4. Mercedes-Benz C Klasse 19
5. Jeep Compass 18
6. BMW 3 Series 17
7. Mercedes-Benz E Klasse 16
8. Volvo S Class 16
9. Crown 15
10. Subaru Forester 14

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
