Is anyone gettin any squeaks or rattles yet ??? my s-line passenger seat has an annoying rattle when nobody is sitting in the seat,If you hold the top it stops.There is also a rattle to panel to left of the gear stick,plastic side panel.
My car only been used since last friday and 600miles.This is my fisrt Audi and sold it on build quality,bit disappointed.
I have a major issue with salesman /dealership but will not mention this to give them time to sort first although waiting on call back since friday on this matter....

build quality of my s-line is fine (apart from having the wrong spoiler) but have noticed that the gloss black air vents cause an annoying reflection in the wing mirrors. Have also noticed that led lights in the footwells - if set at high - reflect in wing mirrors - this was after my husband messed around with them - not taking him out in it again.

Hi

Mine seems beautifully quiet - not a squeak or a rattle to be heard. I have noticed a couple of very slightly irritating design features though:-

[*]Driver's seat doesn't stay tilted whilst accessing the rear seats - seems to depend on seat height adjustment

[*]Rainwater/Dirt finds its way in around the door cills/hinge area much more than other cars I have owned - but I haven't had a white car before!

[*]Air vents reflect onto door mirrors

I notice a slight noise in back of mine sometimes. It maybe the cover over the spare wheel. It sounds like a small thump.

awww sorry to hear that , hope your dealer have a look into it for you.

I posted a thread lastweek if anyone found any new A1 clips on youtube? and while flicking throu youtube , someone posted up a video of them pressing on a number of bits and bobs inside the car and I was a bit surprized they did make noises and sounds. Il try and look for it again later and if i find it il attach it in a thread :(

My car is due to go back into the workshop to get replacement plugs fitted in the doors :? anyone know what they are for? I got a squeak at the right hand air vent and they tell me this will solve it! I also got a very loud rattle / bumping noise at the back and thought there was something loose in the tailgate. Turns out the heatshield was loose and they had to tighten the brackets :eek: . Nico, maybe get your noise looked at!

other than that, what a quality car :D

my learners have been asking what the circles in the door mirrors are ,they are bit annoying for them.
will need to wait until get time off to take car in for rattles as its a working car and days off cost money and i bought Audi quality to hopefully avoid the regular visits to dearler with niggles.
just got a little bit good news altho not totally satisfied, reduced bill for dual control fittin down to £150. still thot was part of deal but ......

I noticed the circles on the mirrors but could not work out what they were. Also the bonnet release handle came off in my hand today. Come to think about it the sales guys did spend a bit to long as he reached into the car to pop the bonnet and show me it had an engine. So I think it was broken then but he said nothing. Rest of cars fine however.

I had bad dash rattles on my Ibiza but they went away after a few weeks.Also I have had a few 2 door cars with seat back rattles.I would leave them a while as taking things apart may create more.

Hope everyone gets their cars sorted out and fingers crossed mine is all ok :)

apart from the chipped paint(not heard from dealer about repair yet) its fine there was a slight rattle from passenger seat but seems to have gone.The cars with rattles have you checked your tyre pressure? When we collected my wifes car
the ride was really firm on checking the tyres they were all 20psi over pressure!

Seat rattle - is your seat adjusted fully to the rear on the slides? On my A3 it used to do this but sliding it forward one notch off the backstop solved it.
