The Full Package!
By Tuan on
Vehicle2007 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewThe A3 is a very stylish, powerful, and gas efficient "mini" wagon. With a chip and performance downpipe, I was able to make 230hp and 263tq at the wheels. I have the S-Line w/ Technology package 2.0T FSI and some of the major known problems are as follows: 1. Divertor valve tearing (easy to remedy w/ new piston-type revision valve) 2. Burning oil (varies from car to car but personally I only add 1qt per 5000 mi) 3. Clogging intake valves due to the nature of direct injection (fixed by running a catch can set-up) 4. Cam follower wear on high pressure fuel pump (this is a wear item that should be changed out every 30k and check every oil change, only $50 part but VW/Audi won't tell you that).
Best FeaturesThe gas mileage is great for the amount of power it makes. I average 26mpg mixed hwy & city. On a trip to Vegas, I can get up to 32mpg. Interior materials for the S-line is great but the seats are vinyl + leather and the bolsters tend to crack.
Worst FeaturesFor the late 09 A3's with the 2.0TSI engines, VW addressed the issue w/ the cam follower & Divertor valve but not with the intake valve deposits.
