Re: Alternator Fault

It’s a 2021 model and I’ve had it 18 months as it replaced my previous of a similar age

Re: Alternator Fault

Thought I’d re-ignite this thread as I’m now on my second C8 and guess what, the alternator has gone on this one too. What I was assured was a 1 off seems to be quite the opposite. Was fixed swiftly by the dealer which was excellent but Audi uk are currently not saying much. Anyone else had more tha...

Re: Audi Extended Warranty

Exactly my thinking and is what I’ve done - got an electrical issue and dealer no hassle just working through it so I’m glad I went for the Audi one now.

Audi Extended Warranty

So, my RS6 hits its 3rd birthday early next month so I’m exploring extended warranty. Has anyone gone with the Audi direct offering and do you have any experiences of its cover ?

Or have you gone 3rd party ?

Knowing how much parts and labour are on these things I don’t want to chance it

Re: Potential alternator fault

Hope you got sorted - took almost 6 weeks to get mine sorted and led to me rejecting the car. Only to buy another one 😳

No recall for me. Checked with dealer, checked the app, nothing. 2022 car, which year model is yours please?
21 - so reckon they fixed it in the factory for your year. It’s not like they didn’t know about it beforehand !

Recall Notice - Fuel Sender fault

Well imagine my surprise after suffering (as some here will recall) an issue with a faulty fuel system on my last RS6, that this same fault is now a recall notice for my new one !! Has anyone else had the recall letter ? Mine came last week and the work has been completed today with a new sender ins...

Re: Alternator Fault

Car gone. A gesture of “goodwill” agreed from Audi UK. Replacement ordered should get it mid to end of next week......I must be part crazed but having considered all things it is still the best car if I want to run just one car. It is a great car it’s just that one wasn’t.....the next one is blue, t...

Re: Driver Assist ECU Fault

Whose the dealer? I was at Guildford the other day and mentioned your debacle, the person I spoke to was shocked. I think I’d be taking legal advice, I’m surprised the Audi executive team are not so over this. I’d be throwing my toys squarely out my pram at this stage!! I have been chatting to our ...

Re: Driver Assist ECU Fault

As I’ve had it over 6 months the dealer says that I can’t reject it......conversations with Audi executive office about a car exchange are ongoing

Driver Assist ECU Fault

SOS failure headlight failure etc. Into the dealership to be told Audi are aware of an issue and there should be a fix in Q4....car now off the road again and my tether is wearing thi...

Re: Alternator Fault

Just got it back - not a great experience from the dealer and the missing wheel weights on both front wheels from its time on the low loader are annoying. What’s worse is that 7 days back and a bunch of new faults appeared - sos system failure, main beam failure and both headlights showing as failed...

Re: Alternator Fault

Car still off the road unfixed - anyone any experience of similar circumstances? How long should I be expected to wait ? Singularly unimpressive from Audi

Re: Alternator Fault

Really appreciate the help - had been told there were none in uk or Germany and no eta. Plus 30 on back order and car specific. I think some calls will be happening tomorrow although my dealer had indicated parts were scheduled late last week/early this. I’m in that place again where can I trust the...
