Well, I got a call from the dealership this afternoon. They say the problem is a "pressure switch"? They called it in to Fidelity to get approval for payment, said they will have an answer by Monday morning. I would certainly think this would be covered?
On another note, they also said that my power steering fluid needs to be changed, and that the fuel system should be cleaned given that the car is a 2009, and has only been driven 18k. These two things add up to about $400.00, so, in the interest of keeping this vehicle in optimum condition, as it is otherwise perfect, I approved the work. So, okay, I should be able to trust them. This has always been the most trustworthy and reliable Audi dealer in the entire area. However, they also said that my brake fluid needed to be changed. Interesting given that THEY replaced it a year ago when I brought the car in after purchasing it and driving it back form Florida. Now I am wondering about the other two things they "claim" need to be fixed?
Yep, glad to have the Fidelity. Nice little $250 deductible. Pretty labor intensive in the V8, given the engine removal. I have heard they have found ways to do the AC compressor w/o removal, but i know they did remove it. Spoke to one of the tech’s after. I am happy to have ice cold AC again tho AND to have only dropped $250. 6 years left on the warranty glad it happened only 5 weeks after buying the car too! Fresh new compressor!
I talked to a friend of mine today, a nearly forty year top automotive engineer. He said to tell them to scratch the power steering fluid change, as hes never seen that change required in even twenty year old vehicles.
