I used to love my Audi.
My local dealer in Greenwich, CT. , USA refuses to honor my warranty and has handed me a bill for $17,558.58 plus tax and hazardous waste disposal charges. I was driving through a heavy, heavy rainstorm and engine dies. Dealership claims that a leaf entered through the cowl, blocking the vacuum brake booster, so that the water of the rain got drawn up into the intake manifold causing hydro-lock, breaking a piston that seemed to go into the side of the block. End story- need a new engine plus. Dealership says this is my fault and I should go through my own insurance. Has anyone out there had a similar problem? I've been driving cars for years, and never had a leaf destroy an engine! Any advice?
