    A3 Buying Advice

    Hi there, I'm looking at getting a new car, hopfully an Audi A3 2.0TDi Quattro. I'm going to look at one tonight, what I would like to know are the potential problems of these cars/engines.

    I've read on internet about the oil pump drive shaft issue & the injector loom issues, dosn't make good reading but then you only take notice of the bad things in life, surley there are some bigger possitive points about these cars

    What are the quick things I can check for before parting with my cash & would you recommend an RAC/AA vehical inspection?

    Any advice would be good, Cheers.

    Get the vendor to provide you with a print out of the current diagnostic scan of the vehicle.

    That will identify any inherent problems with the vehicle. It should be a full print out showing each ecu and their corresponding details.

    Of course that will not be a totally comprehensive list but is a very good start.
