I have a 2004 Audi A6 2. 7t s-line sedan with 56,000 miles on it. For the past several months it has had a severe shuddering in the steering column as I accelerate mid-throttle, as when I accelerate onto an on-ramp. I have tried to have my local Audi dealer address this (it is a certified vehicle) but they so far have not come across with resolution. I have also contacted the Audi of America customer support folks several times and they say that there is not a problem like this with this car, but they also say that if I use a specific make of michelin tire, it might alleviate the problem! I'm concerned about the safety of this car-it doesn't always do this, but when it does the steering wheel "shudders", like it vibrates/wobbles and the whole car vibrates. It started at about 40,000 miles and seems to have worsened over time. Is there a common problem with this vehicle? please help if you can!.

The heated steering wheel became too hot while being used and began to smoke. When the consumer turned the system off the heat subsided. The dealer wanted to replace the entire steering column instead of disconnecting the heating device.
