Question about 2008 Audi TT Coupe

Burning through oil, squealing brakes, strange pop when starting

I'm not sure where to begin...have had my 08 TT Roadster since July 08 and I'm VERY DISPLEASED with all of the problems I've had. Aside from having to put 6 quarts of synthetic oil in, as an out-of-pocket expense because Audi claims that it could be perfectly normal to go through a quart every 1200 mi., therefore it is not covered by Audi care or under warranty. Does that seem normal? I have to carry oil in my trunk everywhere I go. Also, the tires squealed all winter and Audi claimed that that is perfectly normal and failed to fix the problem. The next malfunction was upon starting the car, I hear a loud POP when I turn the key. It sounds like a giant coconut fell out of a tree and onto the roof of my car. Now, my convertible top is also on the blink and I'm experiencing what others have described on this page. I am SO disappointed!! This is my first new car, first Audi and last Audi! Is anyone else having these issues??

Burning smell coming from the dip stick?


Make sure the dipstick is still in its proper place. May have a small oil leak or you could have just spilled a little if you had to add oil.

Your radiator is leaking internally, leaking transmission fluid from the transmission fluid cooler into the radiator where the coolant is. You can't fix it, just get the radiator replaced and then flush the coolant.

it is one of youre belts. possibly youre timing belt. (not sure though) the belt itself is bad or you could possibly have oil on one belt. if it started after an oil change thats most liikely what it is. if not just pop the hood and see if any belts are torn, glazy, etc.
