    few problem with my a4 estate

    ok just picked up my new a4 estate and noticed

    - when breaking at 70+ the whole car swerves violently, it is fine at low speeds and only swerves once until your start heavily breaking

    - when changing gears as soon as you put the clutch in the revs dont drop straight away and sometimes revs up slightly. very annoying when changing gear

    - when i used the air con after the car is switched out you can hear a hissing for about a min then it stops.

    any help will be much apreciated

    Aircon thing is pretty normal.

    Sounds like you've got a sticking brake caliper, causing the swerving.

    Not sure on the revs thing, perhaps a sticking throttle cable?
