Has anyone heard of the term 'Car Park Noise' on Audi Quattros
I have a rubbing / grinding noise when on Full Lock - both directions, but only when driving - foot on accelerator, there is no noise when coasting.
The tyres are not catching / rubbing anywhere.
The dealership has termed the noise as 'Car Park Noise' as that is when it is usually experienced and said I have to live with it as it is a 'feature'. They say that certain chassis models and certain years only have this problem.
My question is, has anyone else have / heard of this problem?
My car is a 2012 A6 3.0TDi RS Avant.
I don't have an answer for you but that car is a well engineered car that should as quiet as a whisper. I did some looking around and the main complaint is overpriced. Not one mention of noise/ "Car Park Noise....? Oh, Lord, I bet he made that up on the spot. Quick thinking there. I once had an Audi Quattro, can not be compared to yours it was a 1987 but was very quiet. The price you paid entitles you to a silent, powerful Luxury car. http://www.caranddriver.com/audi/a6 ranks it #1, First, in it's class ahead of Cadillac, Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar. http://www.cars.com/audi/a6/2012/consumer-reviews.....http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2011/12/2012-audi-a6-3-0t/ . http://www.truedelta.com/2012-Audi-A6/repair-histories-9 none of those mention any noise. 'Car Park Noise' as that is when it is usually experienced. what? I take it you are in UK, hopefully there is another dealer you can try.
