Otherwise, the Audi A3 is a most enjoyable car to own
No problems to report.
The Audi A3 definitely lives up to the great reviews.
Performance, styling, comfort, reliability, economy and hatch space are all more than adequate. I am generally satisfied with this making this purchase.
However, I advise anyone considering making this purchase, to consider the following:
The major scheduled maintenance is due at 115,000Km. Major maintenance schedule requires changing: timing belt; tension rollers, water pump, oil, and various filters. This costs approximately $1500.00 CDN from the dealer.
Be sure to consider this cost when negotiating a price with the seller.
Is the car due for major maintenance? If yes, then when is it due?
Is the car overdue for major maintenance? If yes, then by how many kms is it overdue?
Who will pay for this cost?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
