CONSUMER COMPLAINT: ODI Case Number: 10261363

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: SINCE I BOUGHT MY AUDI, I HAVE HAD TO PUT OIL IN IT MANY TIMES, AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS NORMAL FOR A TURBO. I THINK THAT IS CRAZY, AND EVEN AN AUDI SERVICE MAN TOLD ME NOT ALL OF THE TURBOS DO THAT. I HAVE ALSO HAD AN ISSUE WITH THE CAR SEEMING TO LOSE POWER AND JERK ABOUT TWICE A MONTH WHEN I AM USUALLY AROUND 70 MPH. ITS ALMOST AS IF THE IGNITION IS TURNED OFF FOR 1 SECOND, THEN IT ACTS FINE. THIS IS VERY STARTLING WHEN IT HAPPENS. *TR

CONSUMER COMPLAINT: ODI Case Number: 10245820

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE

Details: AFTER LEASING THE CAR 2 MONTHS LATER I HAD TO ADD OIL TO IT. THE ENGINE BURNS OIL LIKE CRAZY. 1 QUART OF OIL PER MONTH TO MONTH AND A HALF. THE ENGINE OIL WARNING LIGHT HAS COME SEVERAL TIMES CAUSING ME TO PULL OFF THE ROAD INTO THE CLOSEST GAS STATION TO BUY SOME OIL. DEPENDING OF WHEN IT HAPPENS, THIS HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT STRESSFUL. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS NORMAL. I DO NOT THINK SO. IF THEY HAD TOLD ME THIS, I WOULD NOT HAVE LEASED THIS CAR! *TR
