Where do I stand with my warranty?Advice please
I bought my 06 plate A3 S-Line SE from a main dealer last february and it came with a years warranty that covered everything like all the approved used cars from Audi do. Now everything was fine up until ocober 09 when it started making a rumbling noise from the front offside when turning corners/roundabouts etc, really annoying at low speeds. Everbody that went in the car commented on it, so it was obvious tome that something was wrong.
So when it was serviced at the end of October I said to the service manager, could you check for this noise, and I expalined it to him. So they reported back, nothing wrong with you car Mr Steele.....I though, ok I must be hearing things....but I wasn't.
Unfortunately I don't have lots of tme to keep taking my car into get checked over, so again in January when it went for its cambelt and MOT I said again about the noise...."we can't hear anything Mr Steele, passed no problem, no noise" I thought what the hell!
Any way the warranty ran out on the 11th of February and on Monday there I took the car in as the noise was now so bad I thought something is going to break etc....guess what?
Yip..."thats your CV joint thats broken" the tech said.....brilliant!
I feel as though the were fobbing me of until it was out of warranty then decide to find it, now they want £240 to fix it!
I aint paying it and I was going to fight for it to be fixed under warranty as the techs never found it when I reported it last year.
Any body had any experience of this and what chance do you think I have of getting them to fix it for free?
Any help would be appreciated.
