    I was wondering if the door panels were covered under Audi's Rust and Corrosion warranty? It looks like my door panels are "wavy". Thank you in advance

    Yes, the official warranty states: "Includes rust through conditions on all body sheet panels. Rust must be from the inside to outside with an actual perforation."
    Have you had a dealership take a look at it yet?

    Just talked to Audi of FlatIrons. It's not covered because it's a trim piece and not a body panel. I'm just another case of being denied by AoA for a manufacture defect. I guess I'll end up having to buy and paint the trim pieces. Hopefully regular cleaning will prevent this from happening again

    I love my Audi's, but I mean if we're being honest, that seems completely accurate unfortunately. Reminiscent of B5s with the door moldings that allowed rust to form easily. Let's not get started on B6s with their rust issues
    Anyway, sorry Audi won't cover you, good luck with the repair.
