in order to solve the oil consumption problem, the engine needs a replacement of pistons and conrods. this has nothing to do with camshafts.One car I am looking at has recall 15d6 recall completed in April 2011.
I think this camshaft.
Do you know if this also fixes the oil consumption issue?
It's a 2010 2tfsi. A5 convertible
Audi have and still do free 100% repairs if you have full Audi service history. A work mate of mine owns that troubled engine. The car was driven very low miles so after 10 year it reached about 50K and issue started. The engine was rebuilt free of charge.A huge thanks to you for publicising this oil problem. It is still an significant issue with many Audi A5 drivers and without your information I would never have known the cause of it. Audi should have done a product recall and advised owners who might be affected, but did nothing until they had no option and then as far as I can see as little as possible.
I bought my Audi A5 2 L new from Oxford Audi in January 2012. It had high oil consumption from the start and I reported this at the services during the 2-3 warranty period but no action was taken to rectify if and I was not told of any problem or that the oil problem needed dealing with. I have low mileage only 60k to date but recently the oil problem has become much worse using 1 litre every 2 weeks, although I am doing very low mileage due to COVID etc. On a number of occasions recently the car has starting chugging and misfiring alarmingly, showing the EPC – engine management system warning light and shuddering violently. I had to have new spark plugs each time to remedy this. The cause was oil coating the spark plugs.
Thanks to your chat room I've had the requisite tests to show that my car has the problem, but Oxford Audi heard from Audi UK that they will only fund 80% of the remedial work requiring me to pay over £1,000, giving no reason. I've written to the Audi UK MD Andrew Doyle but received a standard letter from a customer service rep saying they offer a warranty for such things. I've written to the MD again since if Audi UK only acknowledged the problem in June 2015 after the Watchdog exposure a 3-year warranty on a car manufactured with this oil problem between 2008-12 would have run out. I don't see why I should pay to have this manufacturing problem fixed. I have not contributed to it and Audi have behaved disgracefully without integrity or honesty.
Has anyone reported this to trading standards since the affected cars were not fit for purpose when sold?
Any other advice of how others have got Audi to pay in full to rectify their fault gratefully received.
Audi obviously don't want repeat custom from us.
