A4 quattro Timing belt snapped at 84,000 miles!!!
My timing belt has snapped causing what I can only guess is 1000's of dollars worth of damage to the cylinders and engine. The car is in the garage now and I find out what the real damage is tomorrow.
The audi service manual recommends replacing the timing belt at 90,000 miles. Surely this means that is is guaranteed up to 90,000 miles. the car has done 84,000 miles.
I spoke to Audi and they basically told me that they could not help with the repairs because the car is out of warranty.
Does anyone know wher I stand on this or do I just have to cove the repairs myself. They guy on the phone told me that the service manual was only recommendations!!!, what then are you supposed to go on if it is not the manufacturers recommendations. I think they should pay for the damage to my car!! (and change their manual to recommend changing the timing belt at 60,000 if the cannot guarantee it for longer).
