2001 Audi A3 1.6


Nice car, but overrated


An electric window needed repairing after 1 month due to a window seal in the passenger door being faulty.

The dash and driver's door squeak when the car is cold.

The rear door to the boot rattles continuously. I believe it's the lock.

General Comments:

The A3 is a nice car, no doubt. I think however when you pay that extra bit you expect quality. Compared to my old Ford, the ride, noise and interior were not vastly different. Next time I will buy a cheaper car and change it more often instead.

Small cabin. The chassis is the same as the VW Golf, but the cabin is a lot smaller than the Golf.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
