Although my Audi A3 is fun to drive and handles well, I am extremely disappointed by the frequency and cost of repairs, and cost of maintenance.
My 2007 A3 has only 79k miles but I have spent about $4,000 in repairs in maintence in the past two years.
That is inexcusable and not something I expected from a supposedly high end auto manufacturer.
Actively looking for a new car.
drivability and handling
Audi needs to have better workmanship, fewer defective parts (AC compressor went in 2 years, other parts followed), and better quality of service.
