Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Your quick google search was absolutely correct. There was a major oil consumption problem with the 09-11 TFSI engines requiring engine teardown, piston and piston ring replacement. That problem was properly fixed on the 2012 and later TFSI models.
In my experience with these cars (the US 2.0T is the same, architecturally as the UK 1.8T), I have yet to see any significant oil consumption problems that are related to major engine components. They do have what is called an air-oil separator that bolts to the valve cover that occasionally fails, causing oil consumption greater than normal. Fortunately, it's a relatively inexpensive part, and is very easy to replace.
