Hi All, new guy on the block looking for some help with Audi Customer Service
Hi everyone, :salute:
My Sept 2003 A3 2.0tdi sport 3dr has just developed the dreaded Dashboard fault. All dials are dead save for a few warning lights. Checked the car in with the local dealer and they are sucking their teeth as the car is just out of warranty. They are at least going into bat for me with Audi UK but it is not looking hopeful, but the bill is looking pretty healthy to them £570.
Anyone else had this problem, I know it was covered by BBC Watchdog sometime ago with little conculsive outcome other that Audi ostrich syndrome.
I intend to take a robust stance that a dahsboard is for life not for Christmas and that it is not a service item. In 20 plus years of driving I have never had such a failure.
However I would welcome any support, contact names and details for Audi UK so that I may escalate this issue if needed.
Other than that I have previously owned a tricked MK IV Golf which was chipped and oettinger bodykit from new. I sold that on with 150k on the clock. Had a MK 1 Merc SLK, great to look at crap to drive hard. Currently got a Merc E320cdi estate, great for booze cruise to france. And if course the A3 which I bought 2nd hand and is a great tool, I do about 20-30k a year it has all the bits I need and few more and has halved my running costs when compared to the golf.
Many thaks for reading my tale of woe and I loom forward to your posts.
