: Faulty window regulator

I've got two B6 era A4s and am sick of replacing window regulators in them. Audi really dropped the ball using cheap plastic parts here that are poorly lubricated and this has been a frequent and expense repair job. It really makes me think twice about sticking with Audi once I'm done with these cars. I have no government recalls to benefit me since this is not considered a safety issue.
Does anyone out there have a newer era A4, possibly a B7 or B8 who also has this issue? I would like to get a sense if this issue has been resolved in the newer versions.

Hi! Sorry to hear about the experience. 2005.5 B7, regular open/close to pass a security gate. So far so good. It feels that if you try to open it when frozen it would quickly brake though.
