I own a 2011 Audi A4 and I am having the same oil consumption problem. Started around 25,000 miles and I was told by the dealership it was "normal". It has slowly gotten worse recently needing more oil after only 300 miles. I was told that in order to be considered for support from Audi I would need to bring it in for a "test" which cost $700. I did and the vehicle failed the test. I was then contacted by Audi and told they would not support my request to have the vehicle repaired. The fix is new rings and pistons and the cost of the fix is $6000. This is a known issue and is the result of inferior rings - the fix uses upgraded parts. Audi has completely failed and their lack of interest in addressing this problem and supporting their customers is shocking to say the least. Do not buy this vehicle unless you plan to keep it for only a short time.Report it
