The Engine??

Ahhh Or Should I Say Ugggh!
My 09 A5 2 Weeks Old With 2,000 Miles (i Live In S.florida But Purchased And Drove It Home From New York-saved About $4,000) Drove Flawless And Quiet And Fast The Whole Way. This Week I Noticed A Tapping Which Seems To Be Getting Louder And Seems To Sound More And More Like A ""knocking"".. I Planned On Taking Her In Next Week, But After Reading This She Will Go In Tomorrow. That's A Sick Thought For A Brand New Car Of This Caliber. My 2008 Cayenne S Has Over 20,000 Miles And I Have Replaced The Oil Once As Recommended By Porsche. Porsche May Need To Devote Some Of Their Improvements To Audi. Will Let You Know The Results. I Wonder, Even Though It Should Have No Bearing, If The Break In Period Has Anything To Do With This.

Car Is In-i'm In An 09 A4 While They Diagnose. They Plan On Letting Me Know Today What The Story Is. They Believe Something Is Loose Underneath. I Waited While They Put Him Up On The Lift To Make Sure They Don't Tell Me I Hit Something (because I Did Not). They Found Nothing. They Have Not Heard Of "any" Engine Replacements To Date. I Informed Them To Stop Talking Like A Dumb Used Car Salesman. I Am Aware Of The Isolated Issues Which You Don't Want To Fess Up To. Bottomline "fix My Damn Car". I Feel Like I Just Bit Into A Sour Apple.

Shane-

Just Ended The Lease On My 06 Expedition Limited. Flawless Engine For 36,000 Miles. Car Saw The Dealer For 2 Oil Changes And 1 New Computer For The Transmission (a Very Common Problem For Fords) Warranty. My Business Has 4 For Explorers (all 2002's) And All Of Them Have Had The Sametransmission Issues. Other Then That They Have Been Perfect 6 Cylinder Cars. They Have Between 80 To 120,000 Miles On Them.
And Yes Am Aware That These Things Happen But As I Said Previously (a Battery, A Starter, An Alternator Or An Adjustment) But An Engine On A Car Like This?? I Guess S--t Happens

Called Audi Before Heading To Dealership.
My Reasoning For This Was Two Fold.
1)i Didn't Buy The Car From This Dealer In Florida Because They Were Charging Stupid #$'s For The Car And They Would Not Bend So They May Want To Jerk Me Around In Service.

2)told Audi Of North America To """see #1"" (didn't Buy Th-----)
Also Let Them Know I Have One Of There Parent Cars In My Cayenne S (which They Really Didn;t Care About)

Bottomline We'll See Later-they Claim They Will Be In Touch With The Dealer

The writing is small to make toothdoctor happy-preliminary reports are the "plastic part" in front of the passenger firewall (in the engine bay)was not locked down and it might have been causing the knock. I am going down to the dealership tomorrow to pick her up and find out what's what.
