2 months ago I bought a private A4 avant 1.9TDi quattro. With full service
history and full extended Audi warrenty until feb 2004. I conntacted Audi UK
to change ownership details.
On the ramp inspection (not a Audi) revealed leaking rear diff seals and an
oil leak from around the cam cover.
I went to my local Audi dealer about these problems and a small wish list of
other minor faults. The service manager agreed to the following as a
warrenty claim: all diff seals, wheel bearing, sticking ignition key,
non-retracting seat belt, any oil leak problems with the turbo, rear strut
lifters on thetailgate door. This cost if not on warrenty would be about
However when the car was in for the work they refused as the Audi warrenty
was not in my name. The Audi warrenty card is not from Audi but a company
called AON warrenty group nothing to do with Audi UK !!
So I have now called my dealer again an ask them to check cover before my
car goes in again. They will not cover wheel bearing, non-retracting seat
belt, rear strut lifters on thetailgate door. But will cover the diff seals
and turbo oil leak. providing the claim is not above £1000 per claim.
This bomb proof warrenty seems to have a few holes.
Have you had any success, is there a way of talking to Audi to get the best
from them ?????????????
Further more how can a car with full service history have so many problems.
Any views appreciated.
