Audi 2.0Ltr Tdi 2005 Balance Shaft Failure/ Time that Audi Compensated customers
If you have had a complete failure of your Audi 2.0Ltr Tdi 2005 model, as I have, then contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I have written three letters to Audi UK Customer Services, including one to the Managing Director Mr Jeremy Hicks and have been treated unfairly.and Fobbed off.It is time to all get together in a mass demonstration at an Audi Dealership involving the press. Then Audi will have to admit that they SHOULD have had a Recall and they SHOULD NOW Cough up for the repair coss of a PRODUCT FAILURE! and not leave it to the poor customer to pick up the cost of putting their failed Chain-Driven Balance Shaft right! When I was 55 I bought my 55 plate Audi 2.0Ltr Tdi to see me through, I am now 60, a very unhappy Audi owner, with a failed product! Regards Phil.(Clacton on Sea,Essex)
2.0 Tdi oil pump failure - new engine!
A6 avant 2.0tdi 06 plate - BRE engine. Bought from new, with full audi history.
Had oil light last week combined with glow lamp. Stopped immediately at garage and checked oil - fine - and then coasted home , about a mile mainly downhill. AA towed me to audi main delaer, where after 2 days engine and turbo pronounced a write off.
Discovered this thread, which helped me get a goodwill payment from Audi. Cost of engine Â£5k, turbo Â£900, but cost to me Â£3,750 - reduced because of high mileage 112,000 and age.
Not happy as this was new shape A6 at the time, and clearly not fit for purpose.
The works are being done next week, but i have also submitted a post warranty claim, which I intend to pursue.
A local independent told me he had seen several similar failures, which he put down to the oil pump drive shaft wearing round and slipping.
