Audi A1 problem

Bought new car March 2011 - in garage 4 months later with leak from coolant tank. Garage have advised that leak is from coolant into head gasket, now replacing cylinder head and head gasket. Is this acceptable for a car only 4 months old and should we just accept the replacement parts or demand compensation or a replacement vehicle?
