I purchased a pre-owned pre-certified 2011 Audi A3 with 7865 miles from the dealer on 5/22/2011. Last week, coincidentally 5/23/2012, I noticed a significant leak on the side of the garage where I park my car. I immediately took it to the dealership service department for service and repair.
The leak is transmission fluid. I am told there was a flaw in the casting of the transmission and this is the cause of the leak. A new transmission has been ordered to replace the flawed transmission. Thankfully, all repairs are covered by the warranty.
This is a significant repair and I am concern it will devalue the car. What do you think I should be concerned about regarding this diagnosis and what steps do you recommend I take with the dealership to ensure that i am protected in the case the car continues to have mechanical problems?
