A quality car, but expensive
The service received from Audi is appalling, the lack of after sales care and service even responding to a complaint is terrible.
I have had my Audi A3 2.0tdi Sport for 12 months:
It’s a well made and classy car, quick and easy to drive with the DSG gear box.
However I also owned a Golf GT TDI which cost less to buy, was equally well built and although it didn’t have such an up market interior it was still a premium car.
The Golf handled better and had a better ride set up than the A3 which fidgets too much, I have come to the conclusion the extra £4k I paid for the A3 was mainly for the badge. Given the fantastic reviews Skoda owners give I’ll be looking at a Octavia VRs soon or go back to a Golf.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
