Received Q3 6 weeks ago and the can bus fell over twice, second time we had to call Audi breakdown. AA came scanned fault codes which I saw all can comms related and saw loads of errors on cluster pictures attached, he cleared them thinking it would start and it failed to start and got recovered to Audi dealer i purchased it from. They can't re produce the fault and have no codes to work with. They said they want to change the start relay in the fuse panel and give it back which I think is pathetic and poor effort. Does anyone know how long you can reject a car as I'm thinking of putting my guard up and saying I don't want it as I paid £33k for an Audi for the reassurance and security of a reliable car for my Mrs and 2 young kids and I work far away from home. Luckily the day it went faulty was a weekend and we was all out in it and wouldn't want that happening to her with the kids.
Q3 is 6weeks old with about 1200 on the clock now.
What is your thoughts on this topic?

Assuming you are in the UK I think that its 1 month to reject a car outright , I have just returned an X1 that had a power steering fault within the first month that I allowed the dealer to fix on the basis they would allow me another month to reject the car if any other problems occurred , as i am now on an Audi forum you can guess what happened , brake sensor/collision warning light 3 weeks later .
First thing to do is speak to dealer asap to reject the car , then finance company , then AA /RAC/Which magazine etc and finally take legal advice .
The law has changed very recently with regard to cars and consumer protection .
