    New US RS3 Share Your Issues

    I figured since there's still only a few owners and lots others on order why not start a topic with potential issues.

    I'll go first! Woke up yesterday to a warning "Speed Limited to 5500 rpm". No biggie since the car has just 700mi and it sat for a week. According to Audi is when the engine temp is not at adequate temps it limits your rpm until it reaches temps.

    Well that was until I noticed a puddle of clear oil! Did research and didn't find alot since the car is new. It got towed back to dealership today. Looks to be a power steering fluid issue since I cancel out just about every other fluid by texture, smell, and color tests. Couldn't locate the leak in the compact engine bay so no answers on my end.

    Will wait to see what the dealership finds and will post an update. For now I'm feeling blue and sad not having my Ara Blue Crystal RS3 sitting in the garage 😪

    I haven't really been able to search a straight answer, but don't these cars have electric steering? (i.e no power steering reservoir under the hood).

    Good point! But only if its a true ES system. Most Audi's have electro assist, which is more of a hybrid. I haven't done the proper research to know which system they put in the RS3. It was late and frustrated and I couldn't find a reservoir so I quit and called Audi Roadassist. Come to find out if is does have a reservoir it may be near the front of the car rather than back like most others. Still learning this new engine!

    That is interesting they went to an Electro assisted model when my 8P is full electric and no fluids.
