problem #1

Jan 022010

A4 1.8t

  • CVT transmission
  • 59,000 miles

At 59k miles, even though I had made every single scheduled maintenance at an official Audi dealership as recommended in the user manual, the engine still suffered premature timing belt failure at 59k miles which completely destroyed the engine. At this point I gave up and just got rid of the car. Since then i've owned a used Lincoln Navigator, Mercury Sable, Mazda Miata, and now a 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, and none of those cars have had a single issue bad enough to warrant a trip to the dealership. This Audi on the other hand, had me at the dealership weekly for over a year. STAY AWAY
