Could you guys please share your experience with the new A4?
Thanks in advance
In general, it's not unusual for a VAG diesel to burn about a couple of litres of oil in the first 10K until it beds in. Then you should find it settles down and uses very little (depends on your type of motoring a bit though).
I've taken 2 A4 1.9 TDi's upto 150+K and neither used more than half a litre per 10K even then. VERY important to use only the correct oil if you service it yourself. 5W40 FS PD in my case.
I've heard from VAG specialists that there has been an issue with timing gear with the early 2.0 TDi's but that VAG now have a fix so yours should be fine.
I'm aiming for a 2.0TDi S-line in about a years time if finances allow.
