I bought a 57 plate A6 2/0 tdi S-Line just over 6 months ago and the "Oil Pressure" warning light came on yesterday so I immediately pulled over and had the car recovered to my home.
The car has full Audi service history and its last service was last November with mileage at 87500, it is now at 93500.
I have read through the forums and this seems to be a major breakdown with repairs quoted at between Ł1700 and Ł7000.
My local Audi dealership have been very helpful and have contacted Audi UK on my behalf who have basically said tough luck. The car had its head and cam belt replaced at 60000 miles due to failure.
I didn't buy the car from an approved dealer, but instead from a respectable private car sales company. They aren't willing to help because it is outside of the 6 months period in which they have to repair under the law.
I have the car on credit, and have tried the "Not fit for purpose" on them, but they have said that only counts for the first 48 hours.
The warranty I have only covers the first Ł300 of repairs so I am looking at a huge gap which I have to pay.
Can anyone suggest what to do next? I certainly cant afford for the car to be repaired and everyone seems to be washing their hands of it. I certainly would not have expected a major failure such as this for a car that is only 3 and a half years old.
I have owned BMW 5 and & 7 series in the past without the sort of problem and with a lot higher mileages for the same age. I even has a Peugeot 407 with galactic mileage on it, when that blew the head gasket at 4 years old, the dealer bent over backwards to help.
At the moment, I have a Ł12K on the drive, which I cant afford to repair but still have to pay for it every month without being able to use it.
Thanks in advance for any advice
