16000 0 Air suspension on vehicle lowered far below the lowest user-selectable setting. Once the vehicle was shut off the suspension reset itself to normal. Audi dealer found an associated TSB and flashed the appropriate firmware. 
26000 0 The door handle on my keyless entry system will automatically unlock the door as soon as a hand is placed on the door handle so long as the key fob is on the user's person. The sensor on the door handle was working slowly/intermittantly. 
30000 0 Drive-by-wire warning light came on and acceleration was awful. Was able to drive the car to dealer next day. Dealer found fault code and had to remove manifold to repair issue with software/computer system. Flap motors located in vents will tick as they adjust the climate control system. Required removal of entire dashboard to access motors. In the end a total of seven motors were replaced, all with the same failure. There is a TSB for this. Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light was always on. Dealer said tires were below pressure, aired up, and said problem was fixed after a test drive. Problem was not actually fixed. After releasing emergency brake, the pedal wouldn't return to full-out position so the warning light remained lit indicating the e-brake was on. Dealer lubed and aligned pedal now it returns to normal position when released. Windshield washer jet on driver's side was plugged causing washer fluid to not evenly cover windshield. Dealer unassembeld jet, cleared the clog, and reassembled. After first visit for TPMS failure, I received "TPMS system failure" message from the car. Dealer replaced several sensors related to the system and said, after a test drive, the TPMS was fixed. It was not fixed. 
30300 0 Again, received "TPMS system failure" after driving ~20 miles from last shop trip. Dealer had to call Audi's dealer support for advice. In the end, the TPMS antenna was replaced, which has fixed the issue. 
31000 0 Passenger's side outside mirror would not turn downward when the car was put into Reverse. Dealer replaced motor in the mirror; problem is gone. 
35000 0 Front passenger door handle would stay stuck out once pulled to open the door. This was odd, considering that the door handle was completely replaced last summer.
