I see the 2011 audi a4s are out, but am unable to see their updated specs. Can someone confirm how they are better/worse than the 2010 models (specifically a4 premium quatro auto). thanks.

    I am having the same problem on my new A-5 - even after I reset the PSIa couple of times. Have you had any luck resolving this problem?

    I'm new to this forum - first post!

    I'm looking to buy a 2011 Audi A4 as my daily commute car. The car looks great and drives very nicely, but I am getting very concerned about reading about oil consumption problems with the A4. I have no problem with taking the car in for an oil change every 3000 or 5000 miles, but I don't want to be constantly checking my oil levels and topping it off every week or few weeks.

    Is this concern warranted? Is there a consensus opinion on this problem? Has the issue been solved in the latest 2011 model?

    Thanks very much!

    I have a 2011 A4 with about 5000 miles. I had to add a quart of oil at about 3000 miles. Don't worry about having to recheck often--- the car actually tells you when its low and how much you have to add ( there isnt even a dipstick to check)

    I have a 2011 Audi A4 and I have had it for 1 week, only 350 miles on it and already I am having issues with it. Sometimes it feels like it skips on the 1st or 2nd gear as I am accelerating and I am having electrical issues as well. The sunroof sometimes opens on it's own after I have closed it and the windows go down after after I have put them up. Also my bluetooth stopped working and none of the buttons on the steering wheel would work either.... I tried shutting it off and turning back on to see if this would help but did not. It is being serviced now as we speak....... This is not a good sign! -_- Does anyone else have similar issues? :confuse:

    Just got a 2011 A4. Navigation is off. Has me doing a u-turn because it missed instructing me to turn left 4 blocks sooner. Also had me exit off the freeway 4 exits before I was supposed to. Is there a fix for this?l

    I currently have a 2008 A4 and have to always add oil in between changes. We are about to get a new 2011 A4 and the dealers are saying that this is no longer an issue. Appears it still may be?

    Based on a rate from a few months back: .00073 and 51% res. Good luck to all.
  • I own a 2011 A4, almost 10k on it. have not had to add any oil.These cars have other little problems but i don't think oil consumption is one. If you do buy the car you can only check your oil on the mmi system, you have to drive the car for a good 1/2 hr. highway then turn off on level ground wait like 5-10 mins and check, only way you can get a accurate reading. otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy.

    I have a 2011 A4 with 3700 miles on it. The computer recently indicated low oil. The dealer says "get used to it" A4 Turbos burn about a quart every 3k miels. Does anyone else have these issues? Is the dealer covering up a bigger issue?

    Mine is 2011 A4 2.0T with 21,784 Km ( 13,535 miles ) ... the dealer says at 1,500 miles "it is normal, will be better" ... and he says the same at 3000, 4500, 6000 ... but now is getting worse, so next week they will make a "complete test" ...
  • Same thing for me - started around 1,600 miles and feels almost like it is going to stall out when you are at very low speeds and press gas or take foot off the brake. Did you get a diagnosis from dealer? I haven't had a chance to take in yet, but very frustrating. Also had a rattling sound which hey linked to EPS.

  • I have an Audi A4 2009 model. I have about 44,000 miles on it already. I was told that it is normal to add oil to the vehicle between services. In about 10,00 miles, I add one quart to get me through to the next service. Now, I seem to have issues backing up. I hear a clunk once in a while only when I back up. Do you think is a transmission issue? Should I purchase an extended warranty before the warranty ends at 50,000 miles? If so, should I just purchase powertrain?
  • yes this happens to me all the time they told me same things- it is strange
    i need to add oil every 1200 miles about
  • Hello
    I have the exact same problem on my A4 Quattro of Nov2011. First Quart after 2000miles and then every 1000miles. At 6500 they started the 1st oil consumption test. I could not even reach the min of 850 miles for the second test and had to go back less than 500 miles later. They tried to change seals in the engine. After a week, new tests and fumes at the exhaust they are doing it again. My car i still in their garage. I am trying to have them take it back and get an offer on a new one. But this is not the franchised dealership who will take that responsibility but Audi of America and they seem to have long procedures. How did your story end up ?
    Very annoysing experience. I can not recommend this car and even Audi the way they treated me as a customer so far. Will keep you posted.
