2013 Audi A5 Premium 2.0 turbo from North America
I would highly recommend this car to anyone
Where do I start?
This car is absolutely incredible. Everything from the driving experience to all the compliments you get from strangers of how beautiful the car is, and not to mention all the heads you turn driving this beauty.
I just bought the 2013 A5 with convenience and lighting package. My previous car was a 2010 Audi A4. Although I loved that car, this A5 is superior in traction and the feel of interior.
Although I've barely had the car about 500 miles and can't comment on the reliability, my previous A4 with the same 2.0T engine never gave me problems, and I traded it into the dealer with 31,000 miles. Aside from oil changes every 10,000 miles, I had to change front brake pads and rotors at 26,000 miles, and changed all 4 tires at 25,000 miles.
Keep in mind, this is a performance car that requires a little more frequent maintenance than a Honda or Toyota. If you're on a tight budget and aren't willing to spend about $500 dollars in maintenance every 10,000 miles or so, then do not buy this car! This car is like a gorgeous model girlfriend; she will be a little higher maintenance, but will be a show piece to have.
If you're looking for everyday cheap transportation, then this car is not for you; go buy Nissan, Honda, Toyota, etc. But trust me, those cars can never be as fun as this. You get what you pay for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Recommending a car after owning it for under 500 miles? It's still a VAG product, and likely to be very demanding of your cash.

I'm recommending the experience. I will recommend the reliability later. I also commented that I had an A4 with the same engine for 3 years, that never gave me problems.
