My sister-in-law is having MAJOR problems with her 1999 A4 1.8T.
She has had this car in for service ( under a 2 year warranty BTW ) no less
than 7 times since last Sept ( when she purchased it ). She just got it out
of the dealer shop 2 days ago after being there for 10 days. On the WAY HOME
( sorry, emphasis important here ) it literally died in a mountain of 5PM
It has, the dealer says " an infrequent starting problem" ( duh). They have
done endless computer chip tests ( don't ask, I don't know what
specifically ) and yet, this poor girl has a totally unreliable auto that
she cannot rely on at all. She is actually renting a car to go to NY because
she doesn't have faith in this car. I don't blame her either. Everytime we
visit her, the car is in the shop!
What I want to know is what can be done? I have not checked the Maine Lemon
Laws ( am going to after I post this ) but apparently, from what I know,
since it is over 2 years old, nothing can be done. She has spoken with the
dealers' owner about this and he offered ( that's a stretch ) to give her a
"deal" on a 2001 model ( which will cost her more ). She can't afford this.
I guess the question is: What would YOU do? Any help appreciated on this.
BTW, her whole extended family have numerous Audi's and this was a major
factor in her buying one. I feel for her and want to help.
