New to the forum but any help or advise greatly appreciated, I will try and sum up my problem bought Audi A5 2010 plate tfsi privately was assured by buyer that Audi had covered the cost of an engine rebuild , I called his audi dealer where the work was supposedly taken place and was assured it had.
Few weeks later I notice high oil consumption so go to my local Audi dealer and explain the situation , they look on system and say it never had an engine rebuild , I call back to the dealer and this time I am told that the person I spoke to had made a mistake and that he was talking about a warranty that was covered by audi relating to an oil separator replacement (I understand this is also done to see if it fixes the problem )I also called the person who sold me the car and he said that he was told by the dealer that it was done , so now my audi garage has done both tests parts 1 and 2 and the car has failed it done 301 miles before needing oil.
They then find out that at some stage the car had been chipped before mine or the previous owners time and Audi will not help with the rebuild cost , I didn’t even know what chipping meant , my question is has anybody had any repair like this done under warranty if it was chipped, I don’t understand why the earlier repair was covered by audi but this isn’t? surely at that point they accepted responsibilty for the problem , I don’t know where to turn I dont’ have £5000 to get this done I am so upset by the whole thing .
Trade it in and just get another car. Give someone else the issue. I am sure £5k gets you into a better rather than fix the car you have.
