Hello everyone I figured this would be the best place to discuss the cause and effect of being flagged for TD1. I'm hoping that this will give Audi of America as well as Audi Canada to clarify what aspects of warranty are no longer viable when flagged for TD1.
I believe that for there to be mutual respect between both owners and dealers there needs to be further clarification as well as a logical explanation or reason for voiding certain aspects of vehicle warranty as a result of modifications.
For example, today I brought my car in for service because my airbag light randomly went on for the last week, now I've already been flag for TD1 because of my tune but the service manager told me that they have to request authorization to cover the defect causing the airbag light to go on. Now I'm no expert and I understand policy, but in no way can I see a relation between my airbag light going on as a result of my vehicle being tuned.
I have accepted that if there are any issues with the engine/transmission or more recently the cats malfunctioning then those can be easily justified to be malfunctioning as a result of the modifications as noted by the TD1 flag.
I'm still waiting to find out if I will be covered since the car is still within the range of factory warranty, at least what's left of it lol. My point is, shouldn't it be obvious that there is no relation between the tune causing my airbag light to come on or even any other unrelated malfunctions?
