My 6 year old 2010 Audi Q5 3.2 Totally Undriveable

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 6/18/2016 Angry Audi Q5 Driver

It's a beauty on the outside, but mechanically if you buy one anything can go wrong. Sure my car had 91,000 miles on it and had Carfax Service records. So far after owning it for only 6 months, it's already has had to have a complete front end re-done, hoses replaced, they still can't figure out what's wrong with the steering that 'chatters' when you turn to the left that was $3,000 worth of work. But what has happened now is that I was noticing the anti-freeze disappearing but no leaking. The oil cap was milky which meant the antifreeze was leaking into the engine and you could watch it disappearing. I had the car towed to the Audi mechanic. The warranty I bought for $3,000 isn't worth the paper it's written on, they have loop holes in it so they don't have to fix it. Basically the engine needs to be replaced. According to the mechanic the engine is so difficult to disassemble and tons of man hours and dollars, it's easier to replace than taking it apart. So now I have no car to drive. I have over the years owned used cars from Mercedes to BMW's and have never had a problem with high miles. This car is a joke. My only resolve is to turn it back into the bank and then I will be stuck with the residual to pay for years. Anyone have any ideas? Or heard of this kind of car tragedy? Update: The dealership refuses to do anything about it. The credit union can't do anything about it. How can they in all consciousness sell you a car that is a lemon?
