2000 Audi A3 1.8
Costly to maintain, but she is a beaut
Hole in breather hose and breather pipe cracked. Agents wanted to charge R1500 for the parts excluding labour. A local mechanic managed to repair it and charged me R150.
Mechanic said I should sell the car before other problems occur. Apparently my engine is starting to breathe and that's not a good sign for the future.
The car is quite heavy on fuel, even when driven slowly.
The car drives well, and can reach speeds of 180km/h quite quickly.
The leather seats are very comfortable, but it's quite cumbersome when occupants want to get in the back seats.
The A/C works perfectly.
Audi is quality, meaning you will pay to keep it in good nick. If you want to complain about costs, get a Toyota.
Otherwise I enjoy it very much.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
