    Stop/ start frequency

    I was lent a TDi model when my TFSi was being repaired and actually I remember noticing that the start stop would trigger far less often than mine. I wonder if that was coincidence or not. I used my typical settings, A/C Eco and so on. The loan car was a drug dealer spec A8L 50 TDi all in black...

    Android auto fixed?

    I have tried out Android Auto a few times and found it utterly unusable. The screen haptics were gone and its sensitivity to touches was all over the place. It was missing most of my touch inputs until they were repeated multiple times. Total rubbish. Luckily for me I prefer the car's own...

    Unable to switch off start up message in MMI

    Ah yes, this really wound me up for months. Then it mysteriously vanished. The idea that something this silly on a product this expensive would have passed testing... infuriating. Makes you wonder what other software howlers exist. Like claiming your drive system is shot after 2400 miles (see my...

    Stop/ start frequency

    My 45 TFSi engine cuts out all the time. It will depend on battery condition I think, and electrical system load (whether the A/C is on versus A/C Eco for instance). It's also sensitive to how much pressure you apply to the brake pedal. I notice that if I press more firmly it will cut the...

    False readings from parking sensors

    I've had Pre-sense unavailable errors before, which I think can be caused by a dirty windscreen on the part in front of the rear view mirror where there is a camera. I've been able to cure that simply by using the screenwash button before. I just got a new failure chime today though: SOS Call...

    Drive system: fault. Please contact workshop - Auto gearbox, driven only 2400 miles

    Just had another failure chime while driving: SOS Call System Partial Fault: Call Workshop. Then the yellow error warning symbol went away after a few seconds. Very strange. Anyone else had that?

    Drive system: fault. Please contact workshop - Auto gearbox, driven only 2400 miles

    I forgot to post back here with what happened. The garage had to escalate the matter to Audi. Apparently the diagnostic software advised replacing the ECU. However Audi recommended not to do that until they had reviewed all the data. I was without my car for 3-4 weeks I think and in the end they...

    False readings from parking sensors

    My car sometimes alerts for obstacles where there are none while driving slowly into my road at home and occasionally while parking. Is this typical if the sensor is a bit dirty, or is it an indication of a bigger problem?

    Any regretted going from A4 Avant to A6 Avant?

    Interesting about the door closing being a common gripe. For the map zoom, I often find the nav routing to be sub-optimal, or plain stupid in London so I don't follow it blindly on the default quite zoomed in view. Sometimes it sends you down roads that may look two way on a map but in reality...

    Any regretted going from A4 Avant to A6 Avant?

    I used to have a 2017 A4 Avant Sport Manual 1.4l TFSi and switched to a 2020 A6 Saloon Sport Auto Quattro 45 TFSi. I went for the Saloon because there was only one occasion that I ever loaded the Avant's boot higher than the window line. The A6 Saloon's boot is so huge that you can fit kids...

    Drive system: fault. Please contact workshop - Auto gearbox, driven only 2400 miles

    My 2020 A6 Sport Quattro 45 TFSi Automatic stalled on me resuming from auto-stop turning right across traffic last week. I had to completely power off and restart the car to get it going again, by itself the starter wouldn't work as normal. This put me in danger. Then 24 hours later it was a bit...

    Car Does not start sometime from first attempt

    My car (auto transmission) stalled last week while turning right across traffic. It had auto-stopped the engine and failed to restart leaving me stranded in the centre of the junction. I had to fully turn off and restart the car. Then 24 hours later I got a Drive System Fault: Contact Workshop...
