Audi A4 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Audi A4 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
High oil consumption in A4
At 1 litre per 1000 km your engine was already consuming too much oil, at double that rate of consumption it is way too much. VW/Audi engines have a reputation for using oil and need to be checked regularly to ensure you don't inadvertently cause damage by letting it run low. You could try appealing to their sense of goodwill and ask Audi to cover part of the cost of repairs, but as your car is seven years old I don't believe you have much chance of success.

A4 servicing issues
It's possible that the chain broke due a loss of oil, but there are a number of possible reasons it could have happened. You won't know until it's pulled down and a mechanic can assess the damage and determine the cause. VW engines, that means Audi, are renowned for using some oil, but to determine if it is excessive you need to do a proper consumption test, which was about to be done when the engine failed. Your best option is to work with the dealer as they investigate the problem and take note of anything you're told by the dealer that might help you later on when you try to claim against Audi for the cost of repairs.

That's no great distance so it's fine for a while yet. If you feel like a change — but to the same size and style of car — take a test drive in the latest Mercedes-Benz C200. It's our current Car of the Year and a great choice.
Reasonable price for an A4?
The kilometres are at the low end for a 2007 model, so it's probably worth a little more than the average A4. Without seeing it, it's probably worth around $13,000.

Audi A4 auto servicing
It's not part of the scheduled servicing and I would suggest the dealer is trying to sell you something extra. Auto gearboxes are generally "sealed" for life, but that doesn't mean they can't be serviced. The transmission fluid can still be drained and replaced like any auto, and depending on the type of use they get servicing can be a wise move. $800 for a major service sounds about right, $800 extra for the transmission sounds like an oil change rather than a full service. The transmission fluid alone would cost around $500. I would question the dealer on the need for the service.
