Complaint / review text:
The 15 April 2012, I have bought an Audi s4 2004 car on eBay from Thomaston Auto Sales - 381 S Main St Thomaston,
CT 06787and Feratis car care 909Main St Watertown, CT 06795 that are in fact the same auto sales person. A lot of problems have been discovered from my trusted European mechanic for a car described as a NO STORIE CAR
Compression on 7/8 cylinder are under the max wear value of Audi of 130 psi. The lower value cylinder #8 with 118 psi had a spark plug with a missing part gone in the cylinder, scored cylinder? These repairs need the engine pull and cost a lot.
Both valve cover gasket leaked badly and needed to be done. There is a bad oil burn odour in the car. The engine is full of fluid, motor oil and coolant.
The engine is consuming too much oil this indicate a problem that I cannot confirm at the moment. 1l fush titan gt1 5w40 every 450-500 miles
The car does not have the original paint and have been repainted all over and the quality of the paint job is very poor, full of orange peel and overspray. Loss of Audi 14 years rust warranty.
3 out 4 wheels had very bad wobble and was shot. Wheels are oval with drop going from 3 inch to 1 inch when spinning on the balancing machine.
I tried to have communication with the seller asking him to compensate me and refund $ for that but I had no response. I waited one week before leaving him a negative feedback on eBay.
The first news from him was an email coming from www.netneutrals.com. I explained all the problems the car had to the assumed mediator with no success, sellers always win and my negative feedback was set for removal.
You cant trust eBay feedback system when buying a car because seller can remove nagative very easily for a small fee of 100$. You can read my complete history here www.ebaybuyerbeware.com.
God luck to all, i wish some day people will start to be honnest.
