Iv been lurking for a while & find this forum useful.
Iv just bought a 2011 A4 Avant 2L TDI 170 Quattro Manual. It has full service history had new radiator, Discs & pads all-round as well as timing belt & new water pump, New alternator the car has been well looked after & has 138k on the clock.
I have a couple of questions.
1 Both myself & my wife have experienced the car stalling when we pull away from a junction or out of our drive we have come from a 2l Petrol Mazda so maybe we just need to get used to the revs required to get it moving but just wondered its its something to do with a software upgrade or normal.
2 I find the electric brake a bit awkward to use when pulling away on a hill I have to release the electric brake & then get on the accelerator fairly swiftly otherwise it rolls back there is no auto hold which i find strange.
3 I have just had 4 new tyres fitted Michelin Cross Climate plus 225 x 50 R17 as the previous tyres although evenly worn were on the limit. I have read somewhere that the Quattro especially needs to have the tyres even wear/inflation as they can get problems otherwise can anyone shed any light on what might go wrong.
4 Does the Quattro drivetrain need the oil changing Iv been told its in there for life but i would like to change if possible.
Thanks for your help in advance.
