Beautiful ride, gorgeous car with many problems and needed repairs
We have had numerous problems with this car almost from the day it was purchased.
The brakes squeak so loud it is embarrassing to come to a stop - the dealership claims it is due to materials used in the brakes and refuses to fix the problem. Even a call to Audi Customer Service produced no results.
Other problems... knobs break, leather/plastic materials used for door switches and controls peel and tear, trunk latch has broken, emergency kit in trunk has broken, door plate has fallen off 2x, speaker covers fall off, air compressor broke, engine light on requiring new parts, fuel pump, cup holders broke, CD system problems which dealer cannot identify, parts not installed properly when the car was built or not installed at all require attention, and on and on.
All problems have been fixed by Audi with no charge, however, this car has been in for servicing so many times as a result of need for repairs that we are enormously frustrated and angry.
This car drives beautifully, looks gorgeous and is comfortable in both the front and back seats. The back seat is the most spacious we have ever encountered. On the highway, it is quiet and smooth. This car handles amazingly well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
