I've been a member on here for some time now and it is starting to bug me home some people insist on being so negative about Audi AG, Audi UK and Audi dealers. Don't get me wrong some Audi dealers do take the p:;s sometimes but the way some people refer to the as "stealers" bugs me, they do a lot for us and at the end of the day they are a business.
Audi spend hundreds of millions developing and researching each model, there are bound to be problems with these cars as there are with all manufactures,
The reason we buy these cars is because we love them, we like to drive them, they are good value for money and they make us feel great. With this is mind why do some of us feel the need to knock them and quote the "sales of goods act" at every slight issue?
When I purchased my A3 I understood that it comes with a 3 year warranty and that everything will be covered, when this runs out and something fails I expect to pay for it to be repaired not say it isn't fit for purpose and demand Audi pay or give me good will. If my dealer decide to contribute to the cost then that's great but if they don't then they don't.
Last point, When was the last time you were contacted by Audi AG saying there was a recall (not campaign) on your vehicle and it isn't safe to drive?
To my knowledge its been over 10 years (TT mk1 suspension and spoiler upgrade) unlike Toyota (brakes and steering), BMW (steering and overheating) and Mercedes (leaking fuel tanks)
Come on people, give Audi a break
Rant over :-)
