First was the catalytic convertor at 70K. Luckily that is covered under some kind of federal warranty program. Second is for turbo replacement (waste gate won't close/open, common problem) at 75K. Audi offered to cover 50% for this. I have never seen a cat that goes under 100K. Turbo failure at 75K? This is my first Audi and I expect higher maintenance/repair cost but not like that.
I had my catalytic converter fail at 78K. It is covered until 80K so I was lucky. Otherwise the replacement cost is about $2000, according to my dealer. Otherwise the dealer said that they do see them fail and sometimes much earlier than 80K miles.
What was the cost of turbo replacement?
This is the first and last Audi I own without purchasing an extended warranty. I am already up to $3500 in repairs after warranty expired. The car still drives great but because of potential repair costs I will probably trade it in when B9 becomes available.
