2007 Audi A3 Wagon 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I love this car. I have approximately 6000 miles on it. I like the feel of the car - very nicely done - and the pick up, but the engine noise is a bit loud. The manual says to shift earlier - right. I am a bit disappointed about having to choose between the Ipod plug or Sirius. For this kind of money you would think they could figure out how to include both options together. I really love the sun roof and moon roof. The drive is smooth and the seats are comfortable. I drove everything from the Fit to the A3 and by far this was the best car if you are looking for a hatchback. The only problem I have had was a bad sensor in the fuel tank set off the engine light, but it was fixed.


Best Features

Steering wheel dials for radio; armrest in backseat; dual sun roof and moon roof; smooth drive; feel of the car


Worst Features

Cannot have both Ipod connector and Sirius; S-line does not come with power seats standard; brakes squeaking; fuel economy is terrible in a major city - highway is good

So far, my A3 is a blast and a half!

2007 Audi A3 Wagon 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I bought my A3 because I wanted a vehicle with smaller dimensions than my '98 Passat, but I wanted many of the qualities I enjoyed in the VW that I didn't find in Japanese or American vehicles. The dimensions for parking in crowded Seattle is a blessing. The acceleration performance is wonderful, and handling is very good but not great. The practicality is what I wanted. I finally was convinced that it made sense to now own an auto trans mainly because of the excellent 6-spd. twin clutch auto. I realize I could have purchased a VW Rabbit/Golf GTI with many of the same qualities and features for far less, but I wanted the more premium features of the Audi, and I prefer its exterior design.


Best Features

Auto trans., engine, interior, features, build and fit quality, safety features, exterior size, what a huge glove box on such a small car, and that's with the 5-disc CD system included.


Worst Features

More supportive seating for the rear ends of drivers. Daytime driving lights. Ext. mirror turn signals. Get a contemporary cell phone/Bluetooth/navigation system; the Audi A3's is too expensive and doesn't accommodate most cell phones for voice use.

Review

The A3 is delightfully deceptive, looking small on the outside but airy and roomy inside and appearing underpowered by a 2 liter engine but providing more get up and go than many larger engines. In addition, it's beautifully assembled and it handles like a true sport. Fuel efficiency is good, averaging 29 mpg. The iPod interface works well, the sound system is super, the steering responsive and sure, and the wipers clear without clatter or skipping.


Best Features

Get up and go. Well designed, comfortable interior. IPod interface good. Roomy but small.


Worst Features

The Pirelli tires are noisy and hard riding. The arm rests are too low.

Review

I have had my A3 for over a month and absolutley love it. The only option I wanted and got is the Open Sky System, which has worked pretty much flawlessly. I've been averaging between 29 and 30 miles per gallon (highest slightly over 32, lowest slightly over 26). Runs fine on 89 octane and hasn't required the addition of any oil. Cargo room seems endless (I can fit two large laundry baskets behind the rear seats without having to fold them down). I have noticed an occasional light rattle in the driver's side A-pillar, and, when approaching speeds of 80 mph, a humming noise from the passenger side of the front sunroof. Also, parking brake is obstructed when front armrest is down.


Best Features

Open Sky System, 6-Speed manual shifts excellently, 2.0T engine runs great, not too much electronic garbage, good gas mileage, great cargo room, good handling, exceptional performance, impressive cruise control, overall a great value for the money, superior build quality, excellent front cupholders.


Worst Features

Move parking brake away from armrest, make power mirrors, windows, locks, and dual climate optional, make leather steering wheel and parking brake standard, include full size spare as standard equipment.

Review

Finally got rid of my SUV for this joy. Drove it on 1200-mile (both ways) trips and seats were comfortable enough not to have to stop every 2 hours, fuel economy was impressive, and you feel like you are glued to the road at highway speeds. Trunk space leaves a little to be desired since you can't even fit golf clubs back there without folding the seats down. Great car though. Wish you could get the options offered on the web at the dealerships without having to buy the entire packages.


Best Features

Performance, fuel economy, styling, auto up/down windows, key fob, looks I get on the road while driving.


Worst Features

Cheap steering wheel for an Audi. I know it's the base model but still. All plastic (4 spoke)? Power jack not in dash so if you are using a GPS you have to run your charger to the armrest console!? Trunk is way too small. Even a few more inches in the width would make a world of difference.
