Audi Oil Consumption Lawsuit

If you own an Audi, you may be a victim of an oil consumption issue. Many of these vehicles are known for emitting noxious gasses and fake emissions. Additionally, they produce a lot of smoke. The manufacturer of Audi has made mistakes related to its operations that may lead to pollution and damage to the environment. If you’ve noticed unusually high oil consumption or have experienced an oil leak, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit.

The class action lawsuit alleges that Audi hid 2-liter turbo engine problems

A new class action lawsuit claims that Volkswagen and Audi hid the existence of a problem that can cause an entire engine to fail. The lawsuit says that a defect in the piston ring can result in engine failure. It affects model years 2012 to 2017. It affects the Audi A4, A5, A6, Q3, and Q5. Drivers have reported high repair bills and warranty extensions after they found out their vehicles had piston ring problems.

In addition to oil consumption issues, the lawsuit claims that Audi hid a defect in the piston rings. These pistons can leak oil and cause the car to lose power while driving. The problem has been identified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has received numerous complaints regarding the excessive consumption of oil. Audi is also facing a class action lawsuit over excessive oil consumption. This problem is particularly serious because it could cost an owner more than $10,000.

Fortunately, there is an affordable remedy for affected owners. The company is offering a free replacement of the defective piston rings, front crankshaft seal, and bolt, as well as an updated version of the engine control module software. The lawsuit alleges that there are around 126,000 affected vehicles. These vehicles are known to leak oil and gas, and the plaintiffs are asking for compensation. This is a huge step forward for car owners, and we wish them the best of luck.

The defective turbocharger in the cars sold by Volkswagen and Audi is now the subject of a class action lawsuit. The company allegedly concealed the existence of this defect from consumers, and as a result, caused consumers to pay higher prices than necessary for repairs. The plaintiff is a woman from Illinois, who purchased the vehicle at the end of her lease. She spent over $3,000 for the diagnosis and replacement of the turbocharger, and the lawsuit alleges that Volkswagen and Audi hid the existence of this defect to protect their profits.

The class action lawsuit alleges that Audi hid faulty piston rings

A VW and Audi class action lawsuit claiming that they hid faulty piston rings from consumers seeks to compensate them for the costs of repairing a car with a faulty timing chain. While timing chains generally last for about a year, the defect can cause the chain to jump a tooth, resulting in an engine failure. Audi and VW have known about the defect since June 2010 but failed to warn consumers. The timing chain is supposed to function for about 120,000 miles, but many vehicles have suffered damage due to the defect before the manufacturer’s warranty expires, and the timing chain is not on the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule. As a result, timing chains often fail before this time, and even after the warranty has expired.

In addition to causing the engines to malfunction, these vehicles also suffer from excessive oil consumption and engine failure. The pistons can become cracked or splintered at their point of contact. When these components become damaged, the car will lose power instantly. The remnants of the piston can escape through the fuel system, causing it to stall. The problem has been known for some time, but the manufacturers failed to warn customers about the defect and did not make any adjustments to prevent the issue from occurring.

In another class action lawsuit, Volkswagen and Audi hid the defect in certain models of cars. The company knew that there was a problem, but did not issue a recall or cover the repair costs. The lawsuit alleges that Volkswagen and Audi concealed faulty piston rings and sold those cars without a recall. This is a significant problem for consumers, and it is worth pursuing. It will also help consumers whose vehicles were ruined by this defect.

A lawsuit filed against the car manufacturer in May 2020 claims that the company knowingly sold vehicles with high oil consumption. The plaintiffs claim that the defective piston rings impeded the transfer of power from the expanding gas in the cylinder to the crankshaft. The plaintiffs claim that this defect caused significant damage to class cars, as piston shards circulate throughout the engine, destroying critical components throughout the powertrain.

  1. I purchased a 2012 Audi A4 for my daughter for her 16th birthday Dec of 2021. Since then she has been putting a quart of oil in every 100 miles!!! What is the process or remedy if there is one from this lawsuit for repairs. We have been told it is from faulty pistons on her car. Any help or information would be much appreciated!
    Sincerely,

  2. How do I join this lawsuit. My daughters 2016 A4 needs an entire NEW engine. The oil consumption has been an issue . We have been filling it up and taking it to be serviced on a regular basis. Now the engine is shot at 90000. Audi America said they the dealership had to compensate and they will not. There was a claim filed. I can basically throw the car in a lake. It’s worth nothing. It was worth $10400 Kelly Blue Book value right bfor this happened. Audi should be ashamed of themselves. This is not a Toyota. They gave me a $23000 bill to fix it…..lol. Never will I buy another one and many others complain of this issue. Im not happy and want to fight it.

    1. 90,000 miles is a good life. imaging if you took 90,000 miles of something…. you wouldn’t be worth a lot either. I’m not sure on the comment of toyota. Just buy a new Audi unless you a broke bitch.

  3. I have a 2014 Audi Q 7 Premium Plus and it consumes alot of oil as well. They don’t mention the Q7 as one with issues but its to be included. I just bought it and changed the oil at the end of July of 2023 and its September 12 and there’s absolutely NO oil in the car at all!! I had to put 3 quarts in just to get home. Its a good thing I caught it before the engine seized on me. It shouldn’t be blazing through 7quarts of oil on 6 weeks. Somethings wrong. None of my other cars has this issue. Other Audi customers have the same problem so its not us. Its the design of their under the hood components. Audi needs to compensate their customers for a defect that they knew about. Its a luxury car for crying out loud. There’s cars less expensive that are less maintenance than this. Ĺuxury? In terms of interior decoration yes but not in terms of reliability where it matters. It makes more business sense and integrity to tell the customer about the defect. Otherwise there’s a risk of massive law suits and profit loss that was completely avoidable. So the money they thought they were protecting, now has to be spent to fix the problem. The only thing that might linger after all this is over is the mistrust of the brand Audi/ Volkswagen in the minds of the consumer when they shop for cars in the future. That alone can stall future profits and prevent financial upward mobility for the company. Audi…just fix it….

    1. hello fatima,
      your vehicle is actually a v6 and does not apply to this vehicle. where did you have the oil service done. was it at a dealership or a small place? also being a 2014 do you have any oil leaks externally. also if you were a manufacture, would you let people know about a defect? no because no one would buy it. also being a 2014 that vehicle is now 9 years old. how many miles are on your vehicle? would you be upset if your tv died after 9 years. probably not. after time seals and everything wear out. maybe the past owner of your newly old bought vehicle was not well maintained and seems like you are just looking for a way out for your poorly made purchase. a 10 year old car is like buying used underwear on facebook marketplace
