    Angry Very angry Audi Owner

    Well,

    I bought an Audi cos I thought they were good cars. This was in January this year. Since then my car has been back in not once not twice but a total of four time and is due to go back again.
    It's a 2.0 tdi 170 Sline SE. Nice car when it's going.

    First of call the DMFW went and was changed under warranty. It had two visits for that, a week in total. Then back again for a brand new turbo fitted under warranty two visits for that too. Also the rear suspension was down on one side by about 20mm and I was told that this needed new shocks. Not done under warranty but Audi UK and I paid for half each.

    So for the 16 weeks I have had it it's been in for at least 2 if not more

    Now.....got the car back yesterday and Turbo still making a noise or wastegate, rear shocks not made a bit of difference so it's still down on one side. And get this driving to work this morning and the poxy oil low warning light came on!!!! Checked the dipstick and not really registering oil on it.

    Called Audi uk back. Got an OMG leave it with me.

    Have I wasted a load of money or just got a bad one?

    from the garage to my work...about 40, assuming they changed the oil at the time they did the turbo. Or about 4000 miles if not.

    You've got a bad one if anything.

    This could be the begining of problems, or the end. Just hang in there!

    What year is your car?

    Sept 2007, dont get me wrong it's lush to drive and I seem to get better MPG from it than most get from their 170s. Shame really.

    thats spot on its the springs that determine ride height if all the springs are of equal length then i would look for damage at the top of the suspension turets or in the lower bottom arm bush although this is very unlikely
