I purchased an 2014 Audi in February with less than 3000 miles

Customer Question

I purchased an 2014 Audi in February with less than 3000 miles on it. It has an extended warranty. The engine blew and Audi, with no hesitation, has replaced the engine (not sure with a factory engine). My questions are, when I go to sell this car, I do have to disclose to the new Owner that the Engine replacement occurred under warranty? This would be revealed under the Car Facts report any way. I am not getting straight answers from the dealer at this point. My concern is by taking the vehicle back in my possession it becomes my problem at this point and my understanding is that the car value depreciates immediately. Is this true or is it more for perception from a buyer? I am trying to work it out with the dealer to let me purchase a different car if my concerns are correct but if I don't want an Audi, that is where the problem will be I am sure. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

Does the warranty or other agreement with the dealer provide for any remuneration beyond repairing the vehicle?

Also, was the vehicle sold as a new or used vehicle?

I need to check the extended warranty to see. Is that what ever thing will hinge on? I just want to prepare for worst case. I actually like the car but I don't want to take a car back that I cannot get rid of in the future without problems. I bought the car used from the dealership with less than 3000 miles on it. The first owner has it a short period of time. I don't know the reason why. I am checking my extended warranty now.
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Tina, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Hello again,
For used vehicles, your remedies would typically be set out in the warranty since state lemon laws do not apply. However, federal law can protect you if the dealer is unable to repair the vehicle within a certain amount of time or within a reasonable number of attempts.
Given that it appears they have repaired the vehicle at no cost to you, most warranties would not typically provide for any further remuneration, but I would check yours carefully to be sure.
A new motor does not necessarily depreciate the value of the vehicle, although it may in the eyes of some buyers. Unless your warranty provides for compensation for depreciation (which may or may not exist in your case), necessary repairs to the vehicle would typically be your available remedy.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!

I recently purchased an extended warranty for my 2010 chevy
i recently purchased an extended warranty for my 2010 chevy tahoe. when i was on the phone with the rep, i was told to give an estimated mileage of my vehicle. i told the rep i would have to call him back, being that i was at work and had to go outside to check the mileage and would have to call him back. he then told me this was a internet special for one call only and i could not call him back looking for the same price for the warranty. i gave 105,000 (i have not checked the mileage since i bought the vehicle a year ago) although the actual mileage was 111,000. now, i recently took the truck for repairs at a dealership, and the warranty company is denying to pay for the claim since i gave them the wrong mileage. the dealership has already begun repairs totalling $3500. is there anything i can do? i plan on calling the warranty company this morning to dispute their decision. … read more
