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.

this is what it was.

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.
