Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. It is not too common to have this engine replaced at this mileage, but I have seen it before. Most of the time it is because or owner neglect, but I have seen them fail even when when they are taken care of. When the engine was replaced though the exact same engine should have been installed as another size engine would not work in this car. The up side to this is that you have a fresh engine and a new warranty on it. The down side is that the old engine failed for some reason. Did the dealer happen to tell you what happened with the old engine?
Yes, this will show on the Carfax, but the engine should be no different. The only thing that may be different would be if they did not reinstall all of the engine covers as they should have. As for the neglect, I am not saying that you neglected it, I just mentioned that as it was the most common cause of failure at an earlier mileage such as this.
