Gets in its own way
By big mountain on
2008 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is a great car if you like going to the dealer. Mechanically, it is perfect but the build quality is a disaster. Handles great, fast, average over 30 mpg in a mixed commute. Easy to park in the city. All of the doors have been taken apart for wiring harnesses being out of the clips. The radio was a mess. Seat belt receiver replaced, etc. Now I have 2 mystery rattles, the drivers door handle and an exhaust rattle.
MPG, Looks, Sound of engine and sound system, panoramic roof, wheels.
Build this car once, don't make your dealers rebuild it. If you are interested and see one on the lot with the Pirelli P6 tires, walk away. Belts split at 25k miles. New tires have made this car much better.
