Summary:

A strong long lasting car for under 3g

Faults:

Not that many things have gone wrong with the car since I bought it. Just a bad idle switch, no rear speakers and no deck. Thankfully I already had a deck.

General Comments:

This car is awesome. I bought it from a friend who installed numerous after-market products. Such as an exhaust, intake, brakes, suspension, and front speakers.

So far all that I have done is put on 195/55/ZR14 Dunlop SP 8000 tires and my Panasonic 700 series deck. Such a sweet car.

The other day I had it around 120mph. At that speed it is kind of wobbly. The car was made to be driven around 50-80mph. That is a very comfortable speed. For me it is at least, though I like doing 120mph :)

Summary:

Reliable, bad ass, top notch

Faults:

Basic wear and tear.

General Comments:

These cars are great.

Decent power, but not fast.

Very durable, and reliable.

Many great options, especially based on year and price.

On-board trip computer tallies several things, including miles per gallon. The Audi specs say it'll get 18mpg city - 24mpg highway, but I've had a few of these cars, and I always get about 30mpg, or more (city and highway combined)... driving pretty fast, and with full time 4 wheel drive, that's excellent, and better than Audi says.

Every time I open my mind to other cars, a quick test drive and I'm back to Audi's only.
