I recieved my new Audi S3 Sportback Black Edition (Glacier White) last month and have had issues ever since. The car has been in the garage twice but looks like it needs a third visit as the same issue happened on Friday night.
Basically to cut a long story short whenever I wash the car I get warning lights on the dash when I go for a drive. I have had the amber ESP light come on and stay on, the amber brake warning and the headlight warning lamp. The garage believed the fuse box in the engine bay was at fault for allowing water to get in and cause a short but this has been replaced and didnt fix the problem. When i drive along the road and pump the brakes a few times then restart the engine all the lights are off. On the day that i picked up the car is started lashing down with rain when i was driving it home and the ESP light came on and stayed on when i was crusing at 60mph on the motorway, I wasnt impressed!
Has anyone had any similar experiences? Any feedback would be greatly apprecated as I am at the point where I just want to hand it back.
I had a 57 plate S3 prior to this and had no issues whatsoever, maybe i should stick to buying from the approved used cars showroom.
