I bought my Audi A4 from a friend of mine, he happened to be a second owner. So I am third, I don’t have access to any of the previous service records other than what I’ve done.
Turns out Volkswagen was sued for the exact engine in my car. I was advised by someone who had the repair done on their A4 to go get the repair done mine. I went today and for them to tell me I have to add oil at an excessive volume (1 liter oil/600kms I get 800kms on a tank of fuel that’s rediculous!) I was going to have to pay 900+tax and then the repair wouldn’t be covered cause I’m 20000km over the warranties repair, which essentially is an engine rebuild. I’m not paying $10000 to $15000 for something you where sued in the first place for.
Well to top it all off when I called to make the initial inquiry they told me I had to drive into the service centre to get the warranties repair started... I drove 100km to go there, I live in the country east of Calgary, for them to make me an appointment 3 and a half weeks later.... and then to show up again today for this appointment to find out that this won’t be warrantied at all.
And they didn’t even seem like they cared I was upset. A total waste of time, mileage and fuel... and oil.
