Bought the car from an Audi dealer. They were supposed to have done a 350pt check and service the vehicle. 1st week, I realised the headliner is sagging, took it back to the dealership. I was told bluntly, it's your vehicle, do whatever you want to.
Another week, found the left front window doesn't work properly. Slow to pull up the window, and sometimes doesn't even pull up. Cost of repair, $350.
Another week, the coolant tank emptied out.
3 months: car won't start one fine evening. Took it for repair at 49000 miles. $5000.
Items changed: catalytic sensor, ignition sensor, both fuel pumps, both water pumps. Dealership took 45 days to identify and repair the vehicle.
One more month, tires worn out.
One more month, brake pads worn out.
3 months (8 months with the car), ABS light starts blinking. Took the car to a different dealership. Following repairs done:
Total repair: $4800
Took the car home, next day the car started wobbling, check engine light on, took it to a different Audi dealer; they found, both AIR PUMPS have failed. Repair cost $1300.
8 months later: Air bag light on.
2 months (2 years after buying), check engine light comes on. The torque converter has a faulty gasket seal that needs replacement, Since that cannot be replaced, the whole assembly needs replacement. Cost of repair: $5100.
I have finally decided to dump the car, but all I am getting is $1000 as trade in. The car is immaculate from the outside, no scratches, nothing, got new tires (less than 5K miles).
It has really been a pain on my wallet to own this car. Not sure if it's just this Audi, or all Audi's have these issues.
11 year old car, has less than 64K miles on it.
Good luck guys, I have wasted 20K on it since I bought it.
