TT 4-cyl

  • 14,810 miles
This is the utmost frustrating serial of incident I have ever encountered with an auto manufacture company - Audi. I have tried to put my faith and safety again with Audi, but they have completely failed me leaving me and family in dangerous and paranoia. My Audi 2009 Tts was problem free until 4,000 miles. Out of ordinary, the engine light came on and the dealership informed me that the fuel seal was leaking and needed replacement. This incident was very similar with my 2009 A3 incident (ODI #10281829). I have since been extremely paranoid with my new Tts as the A3 had left me very frightening experience as it had completely lost power on the highway. At around 14,000 miles, I have noticed a ticking sound by the rear driver area. This was the area that the dealership had worked on at 5,000 miles with the replacement of fuel seal. I have not think much of it as the car was still running and it was approaching the next service interval and I thought I can just have the dealership check this problem then. However, today, I was driving locally with my grandmother in las vegas. The ticking sound was still there and the Tts once again completely failed on the local street. I was traveling on the local street in the far left lane at around 45 mph, the car started to jerk and the check engine light was on. Then the engine completely shut down in the middle!! I did not want to stop in the middle of the traffic and I have turned on my emergency light and cruise to a stop in the middle lane. My grandmother and I was in complete shock, I cannot believe this is happening to me again with another Audi car. Twice in 10 months. Luckily, the engine restarts and the check engine light was no longer on, but I could smell a whip of gasoline. I have stop by a gas station to see where is this smell was coming from. It was coming from the left exhaust pipe. I am completely frustrated and I will never purchase and trust Audi with my life. This cannot happen.
