    The story is bought an A3 2.0ltr se 58 plate from Arnold Clark. On the second week I heard a rotational rubbing noise coming from the front drivers side when turning left, most noticeable at low speed also felt in the steering and clutch pedal. The car went back to Arnold Clark an amazing 8 times with no joy it then went to Audi in Glasgow for 2 days.

    After inspecting the car they noted the fault but had no answers to what it was it then went to an Audi specialist a week later and wheel bearing , drive shaft , brake disks and pads done still not resolved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally Arnold Clark decide enough is enough time to change the car and get me a 59 plate A3 2.0ltr sport which I test drove today and you guessed it, it has the exact same fault if not worse . Anyone else aware of this problem if not check it out I’m sure this isnt a coincidence

    I can understand your anger but if you take the time to use sentences and leave the capitals out of it then more people will read the thread.

    Im quite sure if anyone who owns an A3 08 to 09 plate of the same models above listen when turning left will notice this noise ,I doubt this is an isolated problem that ive been unlucky with twice!!

    I've got an 09 s-line mate. Not had a problem described above although did have a dodgy top suspension bearing mount which was replaced and sorted the problem. Used to get a knocking/pinging noise at low speed turning full lock
