Bought a new 2017 A4. Check engine light was on immediately. Dealership took car back for 8 days and said a part needed to be rEplaced (brand new car).

Asked by May 10, 2016 at 10:56 PM about the 2017 Audi A4 2.0T quattro Premium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I got car back, I feel like when prEssing the accelerator, the car is
sounding more as if it is having a bit of a struggle and doesn't feel as smooth
reaching a faster speed quickly as it did when I initially received it. Is this
something that is in my head or is there something possibly that may have
been altered or wrong initially?

Take it back, tell them your not happy with the way it drives now, there is a lemon law, if they won't help you then contact Audi customer service and talk to a factory rep. Don't let them try to talk you around.

Audi seems to have more than their share of issues. They are great cars, but they just seem to have problems. Take it back to the dealer and give them a chance to get it fixed. The dealers know their stuff and likely there is nothing sinister going on here.

I bought 2017 A4 Quattro about a month ago. Less than 1000 miles got Check engine light, and tachometer indicated red everything after 2k rpm. (Digital display tachometer) Taking it to dealership tomorrow morning. So weird, had 2014 A6 for two years prior A4 and never had an issue with it.

Wow, first time I've heard of the throttle body failing that fast. Welcome to the age of drive by wire. Like the Flyboys said, It's not if it is going to fail, it's when it's going to fail.

I just bought a 2017 A4 Allroad quattro. I'm in Vancouver, it's snowing like mad, I tried to set the Drive Select to Off Road only this feature is now in red (trouble) & keeps giving me the same error message: Audi Pre-sense: Currently restricted. Whatever that has to do with setting it to Off Road, I havent' a clue. I was fish-tailing it thru the slush at 30km/hr. What a pain as I won't be able to drive to the dealer an hour away, at that rate. Also, they couldn't give me a manual for this model, just an old 2016 A4 manual. I have a 2017 allroad technik. Totally different car. no such manual online for Canada. Big headaches. I'm afraid to ask them for a SIM card to get the car connected.

Off road mode is usually just for that, it locks in both front and rear differentials and requires a fair amount of tire slippage during turns. Have you tried to take it out of off road mode and back into AWD? You might have to have the rig on level ground and in neutral on the transmission so there is not any load on the gearing, as it is new things can be a little tight until it gets the break-in period over.

Once I had violent shakes on engine start, find out it was dying spark plug. Best way to find out is to hook it up to computer, it gives you all the data.
