Oil consumption for 2009 Audi A6
Posted on 2014-10-29
I need help with our recently acquired Audi A6 TFSI, from 2009, here in the Netherlands, from second hand car dealer (not Audi) . We acquired it end of May with a 6 month warranty. After 4 weeks, and less than 2000km driven, we got a oil light warning and came back to the dealer as the vehicle supposedly had been fully serviced during delivery. Their mechanics looked around the car for leaks and found none. So they filled it up for oil and let us on our merry way. Unfortunately this situation repeated itself 2 more times, with a oil filter replacement in between, but with no solution.
Then the car-dealer decided we should have a test at a Audi dealership to examine our oil consumption. The results yielded a comsumption of 0.35 liters per 1395 km. Equivalent to 1l/2500 kms. The car dealer called us and said that according to Audi that is considered a normal consumption for that model, so there's nothing wrong! A weird statement, since it means we need to add a liter of oil every month! An absurd perspective.
I've asked the national Audi representative to provide official reports confirming those numbers and they said there was no official numbers. Which I think is bull. Specially looking at the various reports on the Net regarding defective engines with excessive oil consumption.
In short, I think I'm being screwed over, and I would like to obtain some official numbers that I can bring to the dealer and force him to either fix or take the car back for the full price.
