2015 A8L 4.0 36,000 miles Quattro
HELP,
Starting forward or reverse with wheel turned most or all the way always get bad studders or shaking until wheel is straight.
DOES anybody have or had this problem and if so what fixed it?
Audi says it's normal, but who would buy a car that does this for $100,000.

Yeah.. that is definitely NOT normal. Even my 03 A8 and 87 5000S have NEVER done that even with the wheel turned all the way to one side or the other. The only time I've ever had an issue was on the 5000 when the drivers side shaft (outer joint) decided to give up the ghost at 250K miles.

Dave,
This car is rapidly pissing me off. Audi considers this to be normal because they don't know how to fix it and aren't offering me enough money to trade in so my choices are dwindling to sue or take a long term 120,000 warranty.
Thanks for your insights.
David
