Not sure how to do an online poll technically so if a moderator can help great ;-)
If not i am curious to the following Q:
To all us loyal RS3 owners who love the vehicle for its uniqueness - as it has really no direct competitors - and it ticks the boxes on: power, handling, family, 5 door, boot space, insurance, fuel, looks, pricing, etc etc......
We really have one major and frustrating disappointment in ownership which is the infuriating brake squeal.
We persevere - honestly - only because all the other boxes are ticked. Ask yourself - would you accept the same on a Fiat Arbath or a an Aston DB......we all know the answer would be no - so why do we? I suspect it's because we are the niche in audi's stable that have a need for all of the above.
So my hypothetical - but potentially soon to be real Q is ...... And please take time to consider your thoughts....
Given everyone who has experienced the same ownership of brake squeal as me but equally have engaged an unusual and overwhelming love for such a unique and distinct piece of automotive machinery, given the choice SAY AFTER 10 months of ownership would you:
(assuming it was offered)
1. Take a full refund for what you paid for the car and walk away to do whatever you wanted (including buying a second hand one).
2. Would you accept a full replacement based on you cars rejection, this renewing warranty, wear and tear, etc.
3. Settle for a 'reasonable' but 'exceptional' offer of compensation - if you opt for this option, please state your expectations.
As I say, this is purely a hypothetical Q, to gauge an impartial but credible, metered response - independently we are prepared to wait, but collectively we should exercise our rights of the 1979 act for rejection to obtain a fair, just, fair and amicable compensation under the sale of goods act.
