Hi Guys

A friend of mine has a 59 plate automatic 1.4 Turbo and she started to notice the clutch slipping. She took it to audi as under warranty and they looked into it. They came back to say that its a design fault with that car and the external clutch and that they need to design a new one??? Also told her that this isn't a serious problem and wont damage the car in any way and just gave it back?

Is this true as i find it hard to believe and if so should dhe demand them to do something about it? Its just for piece of mind really.
