Audi is a little bit like far-islam* - it gets almost no critical press, no matter how constantly bad and dangerous it is. Why?!* Far-islam is the original islam that the islamofascist Saudi dictator family promotes and which violates the most basic of Human Rights.
Audi news: Audi's braking system may not function properly when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes. Now finallyand under pressure reluctantly admitted by Audi itself.
Klevius question: Can you really trust anything from Audi/VW? However, what you can trust is the overwhelming mass of surveys since many decades ago which place Audi/VW products BELOW AVERAGE in quality - yet loads of people believe (compare islam) the very opposite.
When a supplier of parts for Japanese cars outside Japan fails to deliver quality it's all over the media. When similar and much more dangerous and frequent things happen to German cars almost nothing of it reaches the public in general. BBC talked for months about Toyota's "slipping door mats" but has said almost nothing about the Germans - only exception being Audi/VW's diesel cheat (but usually without mentioning Audi).
Every Audi driver ought to be ashamed - and if s/he* just didn't know, then cure you ignorance.
* Isn't this grammatical sex segregation (inherited from Semitic) in most Indo-European languages quite annoying and sexist. In Finnish ('hän' means both he and she), like in most non-Semitic/Indo-European languages there is no he/she segregation. Same with Japanese, although they introduced such possibility for translational purpose.
Audi has a long (and right now continuing) history of technical failures and poor quality.Only a Japanese brand, Mazda, has succeeded in producing a functioning and lasting rotary engine for mass production. When a racing version of this engine won Le Mans (usually owned by Audi and Peugeot diesels) it was immediately forbidden from participating in the future.
Audi is a VW masked with cheap make ups. Klevius remembers how racist and biased European car reviewers - desperate over the obvious technical and quality superiority of Japanese cars - told their readers that "the Germans have more wood panels which make them a nicer choice" - until, of course, environmentalists told them where the woods came from. Then the same reviewers turned to "but the perfection of Japan made cars makes them boring" argument. And so on and on...
VW car plants produce cars that have been below average as far Klevius can remember. However, although Audi is a VW it might be even worse (as also indicated in many surveys) precisely because of its cheap so called "luxury" make ups which are reflected in a price .
The digital revolution in the 1990s soon became the new and cheap "make up tool" for Germans who couldn't produce the same technology and quality as the Japanese. However, all the wiring in a less than average quality car just added potential trouble and cost for the consumer.
Audi/VW and main media failed to disclose that Audi's Start/Stop system has a defect that can cause Audi cars to roll unintendedly, creating a potential for serious accidents.
Far-islam and Audi also have sexism in common
In a commercial Audi regards women as secondhand cars.
In an other commercial it's said: “Audi of America is committed to equal pay for equal work.” The ad has already amassed 36,261 negative thumbs down reactions verses a mere 2,956 thumbs up reactions on YouTube. Audi was slammed for its ad being everything from “100% unadulterated liberal propaganda” to “What do I tell my daughter? Tell her that if she wants to earn equal pay, she should get a degree in Engineering instead of Gender Studies.”
Another commentator asked:
First, why would you ever tell your daughter that she is worth less than any man she would ever meet? And why would you ever insult your own wife and mother by telling your daughter that they were worth less than their male counterparts? Also, why would you ever tell her that a person's value is based solely on how much money they earned?"
Klevius comment: Are sharia sex segregated women worth less than muslim men who aren't restricted by sharia?
Audi posted a video on Twitter with this tweet:
"Women are still paid 21% less than men. As a brand that believes in progress, we are committed to equal pay for equal work."
However, the statistic behind that line is a comparison of the median earnings of women and men who work in full-time wage and salary jobs. It does not compare women and men in the same job with the same education, years of experience, or hours worked, for example. These are choices that individuals make and choices that they should be able to make, even if a choice leads to a lower salary (usually a consequence of sex segregation - Klevius commment).
When questioned whether Audi pays women less, Audi countered that women are paid equally "when certain factors are added to the equation" — likely the very same factors that its ad ignores"
