Characteristic of the car sir said the snotty service chap when I complained by phone 10 minutes after picking up my RS6 from having the squeaky brakes looked at - not fixed - and the door rattle - no fixed. Are all dealers ****? Perhaps they just do it to me. Am I the only one who doesn't like to have people looking for the MK11 escort when I squeak to a standstill? Rubbish, that's what it is. I've owned cars that cost 1/100 as much to buy that didn't have squeaky brakes. An old Saab 900 classic springs instantly to mind followed by an old astra. When I worked in service I used to tell people it was non-manufacturer pads that would cause it. My cars squeaked from 4,000 miles (and rattled from day 1) P'raps Audi are finally past their best.
