Ive owned 5 over the last 6 years, as a personal car. Meaning i pay the bills. No problems at all. My guess is Paddy that you have had a very bad experience. ie you own a dog, a pup, basically a wrong one. Dont take your expensive experience & frustration out on others, just buy a desirable Audi, rather than a one they dont make anymore because they were too much trouble. Lets face it, they call it a V6. But in real terms it isn`t is it. Its a straight up & down block that they tried to cram everything into. Basically it didn`t work. Every Manufacturer does something stupid at some point, & unfortunately you have been the end user of a dog. As for Vauxhall`s lifetime warranty! HA, have you ever tried to make a warranty claim with Vauxhall. Let me tell you i have, & its not worth the bog paper its written on. First you quote Fords being good, & now you are talking about Vauxhalls! Why are you on here Paddy?? It appears you love evreything but Audi`s. Go & buy a Vauxhall, then try & make a warranty claim. You will soon come running back to VAG, which in my experience, is by far the best warranty ( & easiest to claim on) going. Good luck with your old mans Mondeo, or your boring Insignia, or whatever else you choose to buy. Please do it sooner rather than later though, so all on here can get rid of you, i`m sure everyone else is just like me . Tired of hearing you whinge on.
