I live in Australia Sydney and
I need an advice on my 2003 A4 B6 2.0 CVT , with 55,000km(not miles) on the clock.
Story goes ;
Few weeks ago, I purchased this beautiful Audi from the guy I know and at the time, I didn't know anything about CVT horrors. The car was in pretty good condition and very low km and I even took it to my regular mechanic. And he even said it's pretty good condition. The price was $11k, and I thought it was a good buy for such a low km car. But I began to read few days of CVT horror stories from this forum and UK audi forums.....(and also your posts) I now feel like 'I have a time bomb in my hand..'.
Now the question is ..... Should I sell it ASAP before I get hit with $5000 bill ???
or should I keep it and change the mission oil regularly and keep the car for few more years ??? ( The transmission oil change is 60,000km from what I read, but do they have an expiry date? like every 4 years ? or something?)
