Only one fault on the vehicle, which was a sensor on the brakes which flashed up a brake fault on the DIS display.. when the vehicle had been left overnight replaced under warranty (dealer lent me an A5 3.0 TDi whilst it was fixed.. nice!)
Apparently a common fault.
Otherwise completely faultless.
The 3.0 TDi engine is amazing.. simple.. the torque is incredible and the economy superb for such a big lump with four wheel drive. I regularly get 45 mpg on my commute, which is 40 miles mix of country roads and motorway into city.
Tyres make a huge difference, Dunlops on from factory; I replaced them with Michelin Pilots.. transformed it.
Quattro handling.. what can I say, I'll never go back to a front wheel drive..
S-line spec makes the car.. factory sat nav upgraded for free by dealer to latest spec with traffic messaging.
Went 19600 miles before needed service.. pricey but..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
