    Wow, just Wow

    I bought a 2015 S6 in march this year, trade in my perfect Ford Focus RS for it...

    Had a sound in the front driver side suspension and they changed the shock assembly.

    When i went 1 month afetr the suspension work they told me i had to pay for the suspension job because the car was flaged TD1.

    They found out that the car was flag when they did the certification lol

    Now they want to honor the waranty themself.

    Ho and one month after bying the car, i went to my detailer for a nano coating and the detailer show me that the car has been repaint almost entirely, only the roof, trunk and the 2 passenger door had original paint lol

    Carproof was clean, no accident, nothing

    That is such a horrible experience! I recently got rid my beloved GTi because i needed a larger car and didnt want an SUV. I picked up a 2016 C7.5 A6 3.0T with 25k miles.

    In my paranoia i scanned the car with my VCDS cable, even though carfax and autocheck was clean i then went through all the headlights and taillights for OEM part numbers, even the grill support, went through all the vin etchings. Looked at the paint for blend marks, orange peel, ran my fingers through all the seems for rough edges, etc. I even got the car up the air and inspected the underbody for evidence of bottoming out, dented exhaust components, looking for any sort of bent components or scrapes.

    I was with the car for about 4 hours checking everything in fear of buying something that I would regret or something that had hidden secrets.

    After all that, i'm still paranoid because i remember car shopping for a brand new GTi and i came across a new red 2017 Autobahn in PA. I negotiated an excellent deal for the car over the phone. I then went to see it and noticed something fishy with the rear driver side quarter. I questioned the salesman and he said the car had very minor bodywork because a lightpole fell on it during heavy winds. This car has 17 miles on the odometer too.

    I was about to buy a supposedly "brand new" car with body work done to it.

    Thats terrible. If so many are reported in the forum, i wonder how many are out there on road without even the owners realising this issue.

    Audi charging a premium for CPO is just a daylight robbery.

    To be sold a car and charged for CPO when the vehicle does not pass the CPO inspection is a breach of contract. Breach of contract cases are treble damages, particularly for misrepresentation in auto sales. So that's three times the damages on top of actual damages (all monies paid by plaintiff, excluding financing).
    I once purchased a used vehicle from a dealer that had been VIN swapped and was a stolen car. We settled out of court.

    Bet you got a brand new car after they sold you a stolen used car. How'd you find out the vin was swapped?

    Regardless of tuning, and warranty aside.. A dealer MUST perform recall work. This is entirely separate from the warranty and Audi is on the hook for this. It's required by law. Find a lawyer if they refuse.

    What happened with this story? Did you sue? Did they make it right?

    You have actual hard proof the car was tuned, from the tune manufacturer, before you bought it as CPO. The car sells for more money because of CPO. You were scammed.

    I would see CPO less as a dealer-specific deal and more as an AoA deal. The CPO works at ANY Audi dealer, not just the one you bought the car. This means its universally accepted by all of Audi, aka backed my AoA.

    Please tell me SOMETHING was done to right this wrong. Makes me fear the CPO I bought a year ago is also tainted and I'll be up shit's creek without a paddle.

    Bad CPO Experience... Tuned, TD1

    CPO inspections on all cars is bull shit. I had my wife pick up a truck for me while I was out of town. CPO. They claimed. Thing had HAIL DAMAGE and a broken tail light. Once you zoomed into the photos you could see it. Luckily they fixed all of it the day I got back into town.


    My LR4. CPO control a bushings were out and it had a few scuffs and other issues. It was clear no CPO was done.

    A close friend of mine bought a 2008 dodge Caliber SRT4 brand new off the dealer lot In 2008. Car had like 15 or 20 miles on it when he picked it up. Fast forward to last year he brought it to me to do a bunch of work to it. I took off the bumper and the crash bar was completely smashed in. In the 10 or so years he's owned it, he never had to remove the bumper and had no idea. He bought a "brand new" wrecked car and didn't even know. Of course, after so long, there is absolutely nothing to be done about it except to replace the crash bar and move on. Hell. Even if he HAD found it and brought it to them, I'm sure they would have back peddled and said he had done it at some point. Goes to show, this stuff happens more often than you think.
    What probably happened was a lot guy got too crazy with it and slammed it into something when it had less than 15 or 20 miles on it. They "fixed it" and sold it. As to why they didn't replace the crash bar... who knows.

    Because that fix came out of their pocket. Minimum spend to get it sellable.
