Clutch Is It Covered By Warranty? Are they trying to have one over me?
As title says is my clutch covered by warranty? Have had a few problems with it now...Few times i have not been able to get into 1st or 2nd. Anyway it went into Cardiff Audi last year. To which they said they couldnt find a problem with my gearbox or clutch. But i need to change my clutch? It cost £800 + Vat as its not covered by warranty. Asked her how she worked that out and well she was just started stuttering and didnt give me a reason. Told her i dont want to change my clutch in less they can find a problem.
Took it to Sinclair Audi said it was due to my gear linkage they messed with the car for a bit and didnt have a problem for 6 months. They confirmed at the time my clutch was fine and it still bites. So no need for me to change it. Anyway problem came again in April/May so called out Audi Roadside Assistance problem wasnt there when he came so he pulled up my gear knob surround and was some sort of material disc there which he put some sort of liquid on it and the problem has not came back since. Till the clutch started slipping so contacted my local Audi Dealer to which i got told its down to my driving style! And down to wear and tear. So me being 19 must mean i'm a boy racer.
So because it got so bad been parked on my drive for a while over 3weeks! Called R.A out again. The guy who comes is always the same guy since i've had my car and he said it should be covered and if not whats point in having warranty.
I told him Cardiff Audi said its wear and tear and can be down to my driving. To which he answered they can not prove that and should be done under warranty, wear and tear my ar*e sneaky b*stards they are! Any one like to enlighten me? Has any one been able to get this job done under warranty? Anyway Emissions light, Electro-Mechanical Power Steering light came on and the battery died! Different guy this time who said my clutch should be covered by warranty. And saying that Cardiff Audi are sneaky!
Also warranty running out tomorrow or 48hours. But when i called audi when i had a month left they wanted me to pay for the diagnostic even though i bought the car and collected it on the 11t of July 2008. Do you think they are trying to have one over on me? As they told me to change my tyres on my car within the first 4weeks of me owning the car when i had a few problems with it then. They changed the back tyres for me to brand new ones as old ones had nails in, when i came to collect the car. And the front two had loads of tread left.
Any advice would help as if i can get it down under warranty save me over £600
