Another niggle i have that they 'talked around' is my mirrors sometimes fold themselves out after starting the car without me twisting the switch - i've made them aware that if they do this near a concrete pillar at work where i park and they get damaged they will be footing the bill!!! And they will charge about a third of the Audi labour rate! As other posters said they are unwilling to do 5 or 6 fast stops from 60 mph to 20 in succession on a deserted road. . I believe it can be refurbished alot cheaper than a new unit from audi though. Charging me so much money 5 months after I turned the car in. Now if I can only find someone who knows where in the wiring to splice in the toggle switch to turn it off entirely. I do find it a bit strange that they build these cars with complex inbuilt electronic diagnosis - then when the car tells you the problem you don't believe it and decide it needs to be questioned. I also wish I had steering wheel heater and that it had the in dash readout.
Here is the error code. I find it awkward to drive and use my cup holder because of where it's located. No fault codes are logged and I don't know what's causing it. Any module that looks like this one can be repaired, regardless of part number. Sometimes my passenger mirror doesn't fold out and I have the fold the drivers back in and try again.
And I honestly wish I leased with someone else. Now I have to spend all kinds of time trying to get this dealt with, and no one will just make good on it. I may just have long drive to Oldham and get Volksmaster to do the install at least its covered with warranty. They also tend to make problems like this. If you buy the new unit you will need to recode it and then readapt it to the car. It came on after I ran the battery flat a few weeks ago, and again whenever I was changing a rear bulb but it usually clears after a few minutes. It has a lot of features that I wanted in a car and the price was within my budget.
As for people complaining about noisy brakes I find this only occurs if the pads are not properly bedded. I mistakenly assumed that I would receive premium service to match the premium price paid for the vehicle. Ive been doing this since i got her, before and after tuning. I would not recommend this car to anyone and it's a huge disappointment also worth me ruining that the fuel consumption is really bad I have to top up my car fuel £65 every 2 weeks and I mostly travel back and forth from work to home for 5 days sometimes 4 days a week, 10 minutes to drive to work and 10 minutes to drive back home. Had it towed to Audi Honolulu.
It never breaks down and just requires regular maintenance. In doing so when I did pull ahead deal instead of it looking like I had a car payment left it looked like I owed excise tax. Nevertheless, we would buy another Audi in a heartbeat because we have been won over with this experience. Many thanks for your help. I am so satisfied with Audi we replaced our Volvo with another Audi. The outside look of the vehicle and how it drove over railroad tracks and potholes was significantly different than the other cars I test drove.
I would change the location of the cup holders. It also has 4-wheel drive since we got the Quattro and it is reassuring. If it is an expensive fix i will certainly be arguing the toss with Audi as the car has only done 17k miles. Trying to charge for excise tax that I paid but they applied to the actual car payments. I would have preferred even more safety features such as automated braking in emergencies.
We like its safety features, and has a quiet but extremely responsive engine. While it is not for vehicle repair, it is more technical than most sales literature, and it provides a useful theoretical background for using repair manuals. My families safety comes first and it should come first for Audi too. This technical training is based on information available at the time of its original publication and assumes that repair work will be performed in a dealership by a qualified service technician. Original review: April 9, 2019 I purchased a new 2019 A8 - and there is a problem with the software on the engine control module. I want to feel what the cars doing naturally without any electronic intervention, it makes such a difference turning it off, makes the S3 feel like a real car!! I really don't trust any of them to be honest - i'd like to be forearmed with what i know are the facts.
If they did this as recommended by the Audi dealer this would bed the brake pads properly. I own an Audi A5 2013, 1. They will not do what Audi do - if you get the right one with the right experience they will probably know straight away what the problem is. Its £700 + labour from audi. It has superb handling and has unbelievable acceleration for its price. So he installed it and still the problem wasn't fixed so he called me and explained to me what happened and now he had to call out an Audi expert.
If this turns out to be an expensive fix i will be raising this again as i'm sure it will be on computer the times i have brought it up. How do I go about diagnosing and fixing the issue? Can they actually be that cheap or are the dealers are making a huge profit? Makes you wonder how many Audis are a safety hazard driving around and could blow up any second. Its just not worth the hassle and a shame the weren't about when I had to do mine. Original review: June 24, 2018 Audi q3 is very good. This vehicle has high performance brakes not your cheap brakes found on most cars. Your fault could be just a brake switch - 20 bucks. Googling the same car and I see so many people with the same issues.
Push the button, you say! We can repair any control module that looks like the one pictured below. Not a nightmare if you have Vag-Com but if you don't you will have to pay someone for the coding so worth bearing in mind. Very nice, but how do I turn it off? I've had this also for last three years - every so often an error beep on startup which doesn't stay on screen long enough to read it - but have made out it says see owner manual. No way of knowing if they were in working order. Few months later it went on limbo mode just like that. Its cabin is attractive and we both adore our driving position. I found this out the hard way and spent about 7 hrs trying to get rid of a spongy brake pedal on the Altea.
