Pre-purchase research

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Just had to swallow handing back my 2010 A3 S line 1.8 TFSI 8P variant. I'd had it 3 weeks and discovered its suffering from a well known engine problem and was drinking oil (about 0,5L over 60 miles!) Luckily the garage I bought it from has given me a full refund....you win some, you lose some but I was gutted to see it go.

I'm now looking at a 2013 A3 S Line 1.8 TFSI 8V with semi auto S tronic gearbox. Not wanting to repeat my experience, is there anything you think I should be aware of before I take another look at this car? I'd hate to buy something again to then find out there are serious known issues. Any help you can provide would be great. Many thanks
