General Comments:

Audi makes great engines and interiors with excellent options.

The reliability and durability is poor. This is my 2nd Audi and the very last. Too many problems with electronic components with both Audi's.

Engine performance is excellent with a very smooth dual-clutch transmission.

Styling is great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
