I would not put my trust on a 500 mile review. I wish someone could post a 100,000 miles or km review, as I am interested in purchasing an Audi A5 or S5, between 2010 and 2013. Thank you.

My 2013 A5 2.0T purchased in July of 2012 now has 5,500 miles. Absolutely no issues.
Took the car into Audi for the 5,000 mile service recently. They said the car had a recall for an issue that causes the headlights to turn on and off by themselves. Never had this problem personally, but they still had to keep the car a couple more hours to satisfy the recall.
I use the car as my daily driver, and I'm on track to put about 11,000 miles a year on it. I drive about 75% of the time in the city and 25% highway, since I don't need to use the highway to get to work.
My previous car was a 2010 A4 2.0T, which was a bit more economical on gas in the city, but they are pretty much equal on the highway.
Absolutely loving this car. Never had a car that turned so many heads. Every day feels like an adventure in this car, highly recommended.
I will post back at the 15,000 mile mark.

What is wrong with a 500 miles review? It's a review about the driving impressions, comfort, gas mileage, glitches, etc.
It's perfectly right to make a review of a new car, considering people looking forward buying one are interested in reading a new owner's impression.

I now have 16,500 miles on my 2013 A5. Absolutely no issues. The only thing I've done is taken it to the required 5,000 mile and 15,000 services for a total cost of $300. My next service will be at 25,000 miles. Still as fun to drive as the first day I took it off the lot. You get a lot of stares for the $43,000 price tag. Audi made a beautifully designed car here.

You're absolutely right. It's funny how people want to read high mileage reviews on 2013 cars. Who's going to have 100,000 miles on a 2013 A5? LMFAO! It's just as important to read a review from a new car owner and follow the journey.
