Audi approve plus vehicle
First time buying an Audi A3 approved plus vehicle purchasing it on May 2nd 2018 and it came with an Audi approved plus warranty for 24mths. Not even 1yr owning the vehicle the clutch had to be replaced. Then, 1month later on, the MMi speakers have ceased producing sound from the speaker system.
With the car being diagnosed by an Audi mechanic and they couldn't pin point the fault on the MMi system failing to produce music from the speakers. Worst case scenario replacing the whole system had amounted up to $8,000. On top of these problems the ...tyre pressure monitoring system intermittently activates on long trips and even though the tyre pressure is correct it still activates - Audi mechanics are unsure why this is being activated. This has been resolved in January 2019. March 3, 2019 - a major fault on the gearbox had prevented me from driving out of work which has resulted the car being towed and delivered to Audi the next morning. A dash board warning had been activated warning me "gearbox malfunction you can continue to drive" which was impossible at the time as the car had loss power and the car being un-driveable. Audi has had problems in the past with the gearbox failing resulting significant loss of power. I'm actually quite glad this major fault occurred before driving on the highway as this could potentially be hazardous to other vehicles on the road. Since owning the vehicle on May 2018 there has been 2 minor faults and 1 major fault. Even though I received tremendous support from the service manager I am highly sceptical buying an Audi vehicle in the near future and this bad experience has left a bad taste on the reliability on Audi vehicles - I should have invested on a reputable vehicle. The mistake I made is not properly researching the reliability of audi vehicles, do yourselves a favour research it first before you buy an Audi. I swear there is a timer on my car when it's due to break down. Would I invest in an Audi in the nearby future - IT'S A BIG FAT "NO".
