I'm in a fix. I spent ages tracking down my ideal A3 (2006 2.0TFSI Quattro), purchased it and picked it up a few days ago from a reputable dealer. It had a comprehensive AA inspection (arrange by me) on the day of purchase and passed with flying colors ....
On the evening of purchase, after driving fine all day, I had to stop the car and get it recovered with the AA due to red oil can pressure warning and the oil level was fine. Dealer sent a flatbed the following day.
Today they say they can't find anything wrong, and the only faults logged were low battery (probably due to hazards on waiting for recovery) and oil temp too high (though when driving the oil temp was always 90 or under on the dash). They have driven it all day with no problems / errors and advise I pick it up and they will recover the car if it happens again.
Is this the standard approach? Would they not change the sensors / pump as a matter of course given the possible disaster of loosing oil pressure? I don't want a time bomb on my hands and don't know if I am being fobbed off or if they should do more to solve the problem in your opinions.
