2001 Audi A3 1.8 turbo from Ecuador
An Unexpected Driving Inconvenience
Automatic transmission broke down.
Oil pressure sensor activates and deactivates, without establishing the existence of a mechanical inconvenience.
Oil leakage in the turbo system.
Constant wear down of suspension and engine supports.
Premature wear down of central panel lights.
Premature wear down of interior fabrics (sealing).
Overall, very pleased with the car's performance.
Very concerned about its reliability, to the extent that now I refer to AUDI as : An Unexpected Driving Inconvenience.
High maintenance costs without proper assistance in authorized Audi car shops. Constant adjustments to the car's software and low reliance on sensors durability and accuracy. A clear gap if compared to other German luxury car models (BMW, Mercedes Benz, VW!!!).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
