Has anyone had problem with timing belts with their S4? I'm trying to find out if there is a common problem so that I can argue with Audi to help pay for repairs. While on the Freeway, my belt came off and screwed my engine all up. Here is the Kicker.......only 37K on the vehicle. Any past experience would be much appreciated.

The belt is supposed to be changed at 60k miles. But with your car being out of warranty I doubt Audi will do anything for you. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

No, it's not a common failure. Trying talking to the service manager of your local dealer and talking with AoA. They might be atleast a goodwill repair or help with the repair (50% or better). Since you haven't passed in mileage, you might be in luck. I know of people who have gotten help outside of their warranty because they were within mileage. IIRC, as long as you are under 62k they may help you.
Good luck.
