I have an Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TDI S-Line. It's a 55 with 60K on the clock. I only bought it the other day. I am after some advice re a problem with the climate control (well, I think this is where the problem is....)
Regardless of what temperature I have the climate set to, and regardless of whether it is on 'auto' or whether I have made vent/speed settings myself, the vents at the footwell blow out consistently (very) hot air. The central front-facing vents seem to blow out different temperatures too - the left one being warmer than the right.
Also, on a reasonably long run, the dash just to the left of the sterring column gets very hot - almost too hot to touch for very long. When I turn the climate control off, the dash cools down.
Clearly this is not right. Has anyone any thoughts on what could be the problem? Is it the climate, or is something overheating in there and as a result the air to the lower vents is being 'superheated', regardless of the temperature that it is set at?
I'm also experiencing what I think is low mpg. About 42mpg on a very long motorway journey (300 miles) doing around 80mph. Could this be connected?
Any help or advice would be appreicated.
