Whilst I was really looking forward to being an Audi owner, the
"Vorsprung Durch Technik" expectation was never fulfilled and I now
find myself in the position of contacting the heads of Audi and the
dealer (with whom the contract of sale is with) to reject the vehicle -
copy of letter below.
The vehicle is approx 2.5 years old and has done 50,000 miles. I have
owned from new. From what I understand my "rejection" is pretty
exceptional, but do you think legally I have any chance of success?
Whilst a full refund would be fantastic, I am realistic and don't
really expect as I've had benefit from the vehicle (although not 100%
what I was expecting). What kind of compensation do you think is
realistic or should I expect Audi/the dealer to just refer to the
warranty that has covered the cost of fixing these problems?
Thanks for your thoughts!
After great deliberation and due diligence, I purchased an A4 Cabriolet
2.4 Sport Multitronic because of Audi's claim for quality, technical
perfection and safety. Unfortunately after spending in excess of
£29,000 my A4 Cabriolet experience has not been as described.
With lost confidence in the car's reliability and safety, plus a
catalogue of continuing problems (some of which took more than 6 months
for Audi to acknowledge), I must now claim my rights under the Sale of
Goods Act 1979.
Owning an A4 Cabriolet that is not of `satisfactory quality' or `fit
for purpose' has been a terrible and extremely stressful experience and
I now request refund compensation within 7 days.
