The cars been in for 3 or 4 non start issues and had a new battery, new pump, 4 sets chrome door trims, 5 sets rear light clusters for the condensation issue, a new MMI to resolve phone issues, new interior trim surround for MMI, 2 new rear tyres as tracking was out from new, 2 new cylinder heads, another new fuel pump as well as various other itmes I've probably forgotten......all under warranty!
Latest situation - there seems to be a hole in the intercooler causing the hesitancy problems and they're also going to replace the injector seals as they think it may be that thats causing the " fuel run" back which accounts for the non start in the mornings sometimes.
I dread to think how much this car has cost them, but as long as its under warranty I'll be on to them as soon as anything crops up to resolve it
- The car has now been back with the dealer for around 2 weeks. Initially I had an A4 2.0 tdi and then as I was aware that it might be a little while I complained and was given a like for like A6 2.0 tdi Avant c/w bluetooth phone prep for business.
The problems? As before - seriously poor starting, taking around 10 secs or so to fire up in the morning - Thats just not right!
Anyhow they arranged for a tech to visit my house the next day at around 7.30 am to check on first start up. On that day the car took around 25secs - 30 secs to start. They immediately decided to take it in and have another look at it.
As I said, they've had it nearly 2 weeks now and spoke to the tech this am. He's informed me that it looks like after all the tests they've done they are gonna replace all 4 injectors.
Coupled with all the other work done on the car it'll be like having a new engine even though its done 60k.
I also had a word with the service manager about my concernes with all the work already completed under warranty, the numerous visits to the dealer ship etc and the fact that the warranty was about finished as was the RAC cover.
I got them to agree to extend the warranty by another year and also the RAC breakdown cover as well
I really do just hope thats the last of my problems!
