Lovely car, too unreliable
Three of the suspension arms were gone when I got the car (at 36,000 miles), were replaced when I complained about the knocking.
CD player skipped continuously, CD changer brackets were incorrectly mounted.
Oil level is showing incorrect level, when the engine is filled with amount of oil that is spec'd in the user manual (and by Audi) the dipstick shows oil level 1" above maximum.
Car has now started to cut out when the engine is hot.
When broken down at the side of the road due to the heat problem the hazard warning lights stopped working after about 10 minutes!!!, flasher unit has gone faulty too...
Lovely handling car.
Very comfortable, good handling.
Good performance from 1.8 engine for such a big car.
Very expensive to maintain.
Main dealers in Dublin are terrible to deal with, getting spare parts is a painful ordeal, the service is not carried out according to the service manual (greasing hinges etc).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
