So does Audi of America have an official stance on the pre-2013 2.0 tfsi timing chain problems floating out there?
I've read a few articles in law journals about class action lawsuits that are underway in New Jersey and Florida (more recently) regarding the multiple design changes that have been made to the timing chain tensioner.
I understand answering these questions is probably a sticky proposition for Audi given the ongoing legal proceedings, but specifically I'd like to know:
1. Does Audi have an updated recommendation on timing chain and/or tensioner and/or guide related maintenance, given the apparent problems?
2. Is preventative replacement of the above parts something Audi is willing to provide free of charge?
3. If the current Audi-prescribed maintenance actions/intervals are followed, and the tensioner problem causes the chain to jump timing and tear up a motor before 100k, is Audi going to step in?
