2001 Audi A2 SE 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Nice idea in theory, but not in practice
White particles appearing on dash board - due to coating on pollen filter disintegrating.
'Sooty' smell coming from air conditioning system.
Car broke down due to failure of Engine Management System.
Pipe from air conditioning system broke causing water to leak into the car.
Indicators stopped working.
Adjustment of passenger mirror stopped working.
Comfortable and fun to drive.
Rear visibility very poor.
Petrol tank too small.
Unbearable noise if you wind windows down whilst travelling above 10mph.
Flap at front difficult to open.
As dipstick is horizontal, it is difficult to check oil level.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes all cars have issues - but I think the A2 is a super little car - happy to have managed 83 MPG average in the 1.2 TDI - a version sadly never imported into UK officially.
