Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Awd quattro engine
Cons: Owner costsVery nice car. Quattro handling in the ice and snow is better than any AWD vehicle I have ever driven. The only downside is maintenance costs. Wish I was offered Audi care when I purchased it
Cons: Too many to list.
Advice: Don't buy itI had this car for two weeks and the clutch burnt out, the car has 900 miles on it. The dealer and Audi claim that it isn't a warranty problem and are insisting I pay for the repair. I've been driving a standard transmission car for 15 years and have never had this problem. Overall, the car feels cheap in its handling and performance. I encourage people to spare themselves the miserable experience I had, and look at BMW and Mercedes if you are in the market for an entry level German car.
