Since 2~2 and half weeks ago my Audi A3's MPG has been dropped to 34~36 from 42~45, already scanned the car twice but nothing could be found!?! Anyone has any idea what this could cause this happened?!
I was very please with my Audi's MPG still 2~3 weeks ago but since then the cart started to kick off the MPG down by 2~3 MPG every few days, now the MPG has stopped dropping to 34, no matter how smooth or bad I drive, nor how low or high rev I drive... keeps showing between 34 to max 37 if I'm lucky!
I used to spent 15~20 on fuel/week but since this has happened I'm spending more than 30/week?!
The guy at garage reckoned it could be water or fuel pump, he quoted 160 which I assumed is a lot and though better to ask you guys first...!
The first gear is literally very slow, even if I do high revs (3000/4000 rpm), this tend to happen about 2 months ago, I took it to garage and no error could be found, week later became worst where I had to do about 5000/6000 rpm upon hills! Rescanned but nothing could be found again! No error or anything, a week later was absolutely fine and back to normal, but then same story till today, now the MPG has even been added to the case and don't have any clue on what shall I do!
Since 2~3 months ago I've roughly spent more £500 and still nothing!
Anybody suggests anything!
Shall I sell the car and what...? I'm totally happy with the car, it just the lack of power on 1st-2nd gear and MPG, otherwise very clean car and totally been happy with it so far!
Please get back to me ASAP!
Also I was thinking to go for a GOLF MK5 GTI, reg 2006/2007? Anybody reckons GTI over any other car if I had to sell my Audi!
I don't want to buy an Audi as I've alredy had enoguh of it... wanna try somethin else!
I'm more concerned about GTIs maintenance costs as opposed to Golf GT Sport with same reg 2006/2007?
