Bought this car when it was 11 years old and owned it for over 2 years now, 145k miles, and it still doesn't need any major work and probably won't for another 100k miles. This car's reliability and durability is just amazing. Equally amazing is the acceleration and top speed that can be had from the dinky 130 hp engine. I consider the $4500 I paid for this car to be grand theft on my part. People always compliment the car when they see or ride in it. This will not be my first Audi.
Reliability and durability
4 Wheel drive w/ differential lock, you can practically drive on ice
Unobstructed placement of oil pan, I hate it when they put the suspension bar right under it and you need to lift the engine to get at it.
Cup holders (it has none)
Audi likes to ream its customers on parts
