Re: A6Q wagon


Sorry to hear about this unfortunate incident.  My own opinion is that 
it was an isolated incident.  Thought is that if the engine does not require
a teardown, and it was just the timing belt/tensioner, I would accept the 
repari and be on my way.  If it requires a teardown to rebuild due to pistons
hitting the valves, i would tell them I want a new engine; I don't feel you
have to accept a rebuild with only 150 miles on the clock.

In any case, might look into the "lemon" law and it's ramifications.  If a 
car gives you too many problems, I believe dealer is obligated to take
 it back and give you a new vehicle.  Look in the phone book for 
"Office of Consumer Affairs", I believe.

Good luck.

 Subject: A6Q wagon
 I bought a brand new A6Q wagon thursday night(2-6)and drove home with my
 business partner. 
 When I started my wagon, it made this quite loud rattling sound and I
 tapped on the throttle a bit to give it a little help.
Apparently, the bearing of the tensioner seized, caused it to
 break the bolt of the block and needless to say they did not have it in
 I was promised that my wagon will be ready Tuesday of next week. 
 Should I have demaned for another brand new wagon? What would you do if
 you were in my situation? I need your professional advise, and I need
 advise from your loyal Quattro owners.
 Please help!!!
