Hi there... I live...

Hi there... I live in San Jose, CA

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a CA lawyer about this?

I have a situation whereby I took my 2008 Audi A3 which has been dealer maintained and has only 60,000 miles into the dealership and they told me that I have a catastrophic situation and my engine need to replaced....I proactively reached out to Audi America and tried to solicit their help but they have not really done anything or helped in anyway. My concern is that it is not normal for a vehicle to require a complete engine change at 60,000 miles....I am trying to understand if I have grounds for some legal intervention with Audi or even a viable case please? Yes I have reached out to a bunch of lawyers but either not heard back or have been told they do not specialize in this type of case....I tried civil litigation lawyers and also lemon car lawyers, but no luck and a bit disheartened...

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Literally none...Trying to see what my options are... I was hoping by reaching out proactively to corporate Audi they would appreciate me doing anything legal or going on social media and posting negative comments but they have actually shown a lack of interest and honestly wasted over three weeks of our time... The feeling I get is that they might think that through this behavior we will go away...

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I wanted to keep things brief to avoid wasting either of our times but I have given you the fundamental details....

Lemon law, california, yes, this Went in for break clicking
this Went in for break clicking noise when i press the break. First dealership went in about 2-3 times for the issue. Confirmed the issue with two people mechanic and service manager. 2nd time. They said they cant fix the issue. They also said it doesn't affect the driving but the noise and feeling of the click on the break cause me problems. I went in a different audi dealership. they confirmed the noise with a lead mechanic. they replaced the break light switch. At first it didnt make the noise and now after a few months. its making the noise again. I was recently called by audi america for two options. 1 option is to settle with 3500 dollars and 2nd option is to get a new 2018 audi a6. They said i had to pay usage. i dont get that "Good afternoon, We follow the California lemon law for usage. It is your mileage the first time you brought the vehicle into the dealership for the concern 5,843 miles divided by 120,000.00 and multiply it by your purchase price.
