2010 Audi S5 Cabriolet 3.0 supercharged

Summary:

Zippy 4 seater convertible fun!

Faults:

I have not experienced any mechanical problems with the car.

General Comments:

I own a 2010 S5 cabriolet. I bought it used from the original owner. I had to drive it across country to get it home. After my 900 mile journey I was in love with the car! It is responsive, sure footed, agile and extremely comfortable (I do not understand how anyone could not find the front seats of this car uncomfortable). Oh, and the car is beautiful - top up or down.

It currently has 45,000 miles on it. The 3.0 Supercharged engine requires regular maintenance by technicians who can access the Audi ECU. Not every mechanic should be servicing an S5.

I have taken a number of trips around town with 3 or 4 people in the car, both with the top up and down. The back seat is tight, but will accommodate 2 adults.

The only drawback is the fuel consumption. If you drive aggressively the supercharger drinks gas quickly.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2013 Audi S5 3.0 supercharged

Summary:

Fast, fun, and top notch quality!

Faults:

Nothing yet.

It has true big performance brakes, and they will stop you like hitting a brick wall, but are prone to squeaking a bit under light braking.

General Comments:

This car is fantastic! Super fast, great handling.

Great exhaust note, though it could be a bit louder.

This car is a rocket ship; faster than most anything you encounter on a daily basis.

Good value for money, but be prepared, as it is an expensive car; don't be fooled otherwise.
