    Hi all

    Basiclly going to be buying my first Audi soon, its a 2.0 TDi 170 Quattro S Line, with roughly 40k on it

    Ive been reading some horror stories about the oil pump failure/balance crank?

    Is there anyone on here that can tell me if i will be buying a problematic car?, i have the registration available

    Thanks in advance

    Does it have full history? All cars can be problematic if abused or neglected... If unsure keep searching or buy a warranty policy!

    I have never heard of any oil pump failures on the a3 chassis. The A3 range of 2.0tdis iirc, doesn't use the stupid balance shaft system/hex bar drive.
