Oil consumption huge problem with Audi A3 convertible TFSI model.

published

Similar to the problem stated in a earlier post I am facing oil consumption problem with the Audi A3 model I bought very recently. Can’t drive more than 400 km before need to replace oil. It is a known problem in many countries. I trusted the brand of course a big mistake. Audi Australia not accepting these issue as true. My advice stay away from at least these models having problems.

Purchased in September 2019.

Huge oil consumption. Poor finish inside. No support for problems. High service costs.

An update - still no support from Audi. Nothing. They put out all the glossy marketing stuff but when their product malfunctions, you are left on your own.

Bought a 2005 2.0fsi last month and love it! Enough space for a family of 4 (inc. roomy boot), feels safe/solid/silent/secure and holds the road well too... which is why (on my own) i can drive hard on the street or in the mountains with no trouble at all (it FLIES!). All in all a great all rounder. Maybe expensive, but hey! it's an AUDI!!!
I really recomend this car!
Looks great (RED!!!), & drives great!!!
nothing really... seems thirsty, but it's my 1st 2 litre so can't compaire...

How long will an audi a3 2.0t last in kms on average?

Seriously, if you maintain the car well, regular servicing and not abuse it, I don't see why it won't last a million miles. I have had a Mitsubishi 2.0L in the past that was purchased used and by 60,000 miles required engine rebuild. The previous owner probably didn't maintain it well enough

Couldn't say, you'd have to check other research. Mine is relatively new 2013 and I have had no troubles at all with the car.
