Pros: The large sunroof
Cons: the navigation system was too expensive to buy
Advice: Test drive one to see for yourself how luxurious this sporty, gas efficient car is- you will love it!It handles very well. The seats are comfortable and the interior is typical Audi - clean and nice looking. The engine was quiet with a lot of pick up. All the extra features are well worth the price difference to the VW Golf TDI.The trunk space is bigger than the VW. The leather is a handsome upgrade. I love the tiptronic and sport mode. The golf had a small sunroof that made a terrible noise when open and excelerating onto the freeway. Audi does such high quality workmanship that this car will last a long time.Finally a luxury car that is green!
Advice: get the 3.2 2005AMAZING is the only word that can describe this car
Pros: The DSG transmission
Cons: I like it all
Advice: Get is in Brilliant Red ,,, The best color for this vehicle ,,, in my opinionThis 2006 audi a3 is the best vehicle I have ever purchased. To think I had placed a deposit on the 2006 honda Civic SI only to wait 3 months for the car.... I grew tired of waiting and test drove the A3 ,,, I drove it home the same day !!! thanks Honda !! This Audi A3 has it all , Power , Good looks, Nice fuel economy, and the best combination of ride , handling and utility of any vehicle around... ' the smart man's sports car ' The DSG tranny is a dream . After 2 years of owning this vehicle , I still get looks and stares everywhare I go. If you are thinking about a sporty vehcle, with an eye on gas prices you must take a look at the Audi A3. You will love it.
Pros: none of audi
Advice: don't do it you will lose all with that carBeware do not buy audi they do not stand for their product .I had a clutch problem and end up to replacing trans .BTW the car should be on bumper 2 bumper warranties but end up not 2 be because of wearing item (clutch) .If you looking to upgraded to increase the HP beware they can't handle more then 500 hp .Anyway stay with japan cars witch their lot secure they less ALOT longer and can handle easy 300 K witch audi usually braking down around 50k -100k. I DO NOT RECOMMENDING THIS CAR TO ANYONE !!!!!!!!!
Pros: automatic gear
Advice: automatic gearHoward Wilner of New England Automax tested this car and its a great car. One of the best Audi produced.
Pros: Gas Milage
Cons: The Ride
Advice: Test drive it and make sure you like it.Ok for a 4 Cyl. The only thing I do not like about this car is the road noise... You can here the wheels spinning over the enegine noise... Its a rough ride... I would say it is not a long distance car like I use it for.
Pros: handling is great, but not in the rain
Cons: wipers shimmy, remote takes forever to lock/unlock, no center console
Advice: wait a few years and/or don't expect Audi to appropriately handle a declared lemonI test drove this and bought it on a sunny day. In the rain, the wipers shimmy and the 2.0 slides on the road. They replaced the windshield, but it still happens; which makes it potentially unsafe. I wish I had gotten the quattro, but the 3.2 gets non-eco friendly mileage.
