The T ROC does share the same engine,, the car I’m changing to is the new T CROSS with a tried and tested 1.O engine with a DSG. gearbox.
115 bhp. 0 - 62 in just over 10 seconds compared to 8.5 seconds for the Q2 but I will have to live with that

My wife has this 1.0 engine in an Ateca. Very good performance, pulls well, not particularly economical at around 37mpg but the Ateca is a big car, larger than the Q2.

An update....or not.
After being told my car rejection, was rejected by Audi UK. I wrote to the motor Ombudsman. Nearly 3 weeks later the ombudsman say they will look at my case.
I reckon there must be about 1000 cars effected like mine so Audi are not going to admit liability as that’s £30 million. After the debacle of The emissions this is the last think they need.

Surely it is the dealer who stands any loss, not Audi UK?

I was told by Audi UK that if Lakeland Audi agreed my case for rejection that they would basically over rule that decision.

They intimated it would be at least the end of the year before the Audi update was available as they had other priorities. Needless to say this was just verbal. They don’t want to put anything in writing.

I’ve had 5 Audi’s .... I won’t be having another.

So my car spent two weeks with the dealer. After which I was told that their systems could detect no problem. I was however told that Audi in Germany know there is an issue and are working on a solution. It must be a complex fix given the time it is taking!!!

My wife and I have been following this link with interest as we took delivery of a new Q2 35 TFSI SLine back in April, having moved from an A3 Sportback with a very nippy 1.4L engine. The new Q2 suffered the same as previously described in this link. We had the car into the garage as we thought it was dangerous to drive. It was eventually found to be faulty by the garage. As there was no definate date for a fix we decided to reject. The local dealership liaised with Audi UK who said they would help out to get us a car to suit our needs. Options were given and we eventually opted for an approved Q3 1.4L Black Edition , 68 reg 6k on the clock with a cash refund to equate to the amount we paid for the new Q2. We thought getting a car with the same engine was out of the question and did not want anything bigger or with a diesel engine. It seems a shame that all dealerships have not reacted the same way as what ours has and that Audi UK have not done the same if what we read is correct.

Glad you got it sorted and got a car you are happy with. If it is the old model Q3 then I still don’t think you can call that as a win situation. The dealer will have had an old model on his hands so he still went skipping to the bank! If it’s the new model then that’s a great deal and the dealer should be praised.

Ref the above reply.
As mentioned in the original post, it is a 68 reg September 25th with a 1.4L engine. If we had gone for the newer model it would have had a 1.5L engine, which we could have had the same problem so defeating the object. The dealership had to buy the Q3 from another dealership outside their group, so I thnk they have gone beyond their obligations and should be praised.
With regard to a win situation, we have a car which we are happy with albeit not brand new.
Further to previous logs as to who should pay..... Audi UK have paid us a cash refund and also the dealership a refund. So I hope Audi UK can claim something back from Audi in Germany.
