Gentleman's sports car! Drive one!
Had the famous coil issue, and at seven years old Audi honored the recall!
I had one issue where the car died on the highway and left me stranded over an ignition relay!!!
I own an older Porsche 911; this Audi shows its lineage well! The Porsche is a tricky monster to handle, and is the kind of car you must always be diligent with or you will suffer! The Audi is way easier to drive, much more refined I guess, shift points are very forgiving.
You can drive this car to work everyday and still use it to tick off all the kids in their right hand drive Nissan beaters!
It is my everyday driver including winter, the Quattro system with ESP and trac control make it an amazing car for our winters in Canada.
The defrost system could be somewhat stronger.
I also own a Chevy Blazer to tow my toys and a little Suzuki X-90 I keep at the cottage for beach runs! Both of these have also served me well.
Recently rented a Mazda 3 while on business, believe me... friends don't let friends drive Mazda's! What a horrible uncomfortable car.. it did get great gas mileage though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
