The high oil consumption makes owning an otherwise great car a painful experience
Very high oil consumption.
Light bulbs can only be changed by the garage (there are no instructions in the handbook).
The Continuously Variable transmission (CVT) is really smooth; the smoothest ride of any car I have owned whether on the motorway or stop-start driving in town.
The car is well made and reliable (one breakdown in 60,000 miles).
However, having said all that I have never had any other car that needed oil adding between services. The Audi needs oil every one to two weeks. You need to keep a can in the boot for long journeys; that can get messy when it leaks! The oil problem is so bad that I would never buy another Audi until they fix the problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
