5 miles from the dealership with a 10 amp fuse in a 5 amp circuit, the 10 amp fuse blows. (see previous complaint for info). Dealership had vehicle for almost 2 weeks and stated they had the front bumper off trying to find what was shorting out the fuse. Finally was told that they suspected that the body module might be faulty, so they took a known good body module from another vehicle and put it in mine. Dealership then drove my vehicle with stand in body module and never repeated the issue. Ordered a new body module and replaced the stand-in. They then "drove the stew" out of my vehicle and could not replicate the issue again. Audi engineers again stood behind analysis and repair. This time, it seems to have repaired the problem, but cost me well over 1,000 miles on my car, as well as $1,700 for a repair that shouldn't have cost more than 500. Dealership ripped me off and would never make it right.
