A lot to like

2010 Audi A3 Diesel 2.0 TDI Premium 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

I love the car. It does very well at providing both exceptional fuel economy, and the visceral experience of driving a performance car. While not a rocket, the car is fit for the fast lane and is really fun to drive.

A3 TDI

2010 Audi A3 Diesel 2.0 TDI Premium 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

This is a great little car. Have had it for 7 months and am very pleased with it. I bought it primarily for it's fuel efficiency and not disappointed, averaging 45 mpg hwy & 37 city. Car is comfortable, quiet and has fairly good handling. The A3 has a clean exterior (sport wagon look) and a well laid out interior. Audi builds a quality car and while the A3 is their entry level vehicle, my opinion is that they did a fine job with the A3. It is pricier than the VW Jetta TDI but the detail level between the cars warrants the higher price.

Acceleration issue?

Review

Less than 2,000 miles on the car and I've noticed a sudden loss in power twice now when accelerating from a stop. Once from a traffic light was simply annoying and the 2nd time pulling out of a parking spot into traffic was dangerous. Anyone else notice this? The normal performance is great. The car is at the dealer for repair now.

Review

I have the car now for 5 months and still find it amazing. It has performed flawlessly without any glitches and the mileage has been great. The interior is so versatile and handles all my needs. I feel very safe and secure when driving and would make the same purchase again. I highly recommend the TDI to all.

Review

At 4,000, am thoroughly in love: Blast to drive, lots of torque, great mountain road control with paddle gear selectors. Plus, averaging 40.8 mpg combined (no commute traffic, lots of freeway). Corners tight and flat, excellent control.

A3 TDI perfection!

Review

Had been interested in purchasing a diesel for some time now but never seemed to make financial sense until the A3 TDI came out. Only $1200 more than a standard FWD A3. The Fed tax credit of $1300 covered the difference plus the state waives sales tax. What a great car! Love how it drives and rides. The TDI engine has plenty of pull to get on the highway and for passing. The interior is very impressive with surprisingly amount of room. The exterior looks fantastic especially with the LED/xenon headlights and black sunroof. Extremely happy with the purchase. Averaging 39 mpg. Great job Audi!

Review

Passed 1000 miles with flying colors. Able to push it a bit and diesel torque is evident. Combined mileage at about 35 mpg, highway over 45. If the reliability holds up -- so far, so good -- will likely sell my second car ('98 BMW540). Couldn't be happier but am looking forward to an A4 wagon with diesel. More wheelbase, more power. Caution: This is a small car, not for large people. At 5'7" and 130 lbs, it's just right for me.

Little Green Machine

Review

Traded in a 2008 Prius that had a lot of technology but no comfort. The A3 is amazing and so beyond all I could ask for. It is very upscale inside and out. The mpg is excellent and the torque is a thrill. The Ipod interface allows me to have a lot of CD's in an organized fashion, and the Bose sound is so clear and deep. The Navigation has real time traffic and a crisp and clear screen. I love the LED lights front and back. The car in Ibis white looks very European, especially with the black open sky roof. The transmission feels like a manual without all the work. Storage room is a little better than the Prius. I highly recommend the A3 TDI for MPG as well as practicality.

Two weeks old

2010 Audi A3 Diesel 2.0 TDI Premium 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

Just had my A3 TDI for two weeks but, so far, it's an outstanding little vehicle. Peppy, quick steering, and great to shift in the manual mode. Build quality and economy are excellent, ride is a tad choppy but sure-footed, comfort is adequate, and interior and exterior are show- stoppers. My other car is a 540 BMW, so the downsize is taking a bit of adjustment -- don't know how I'll like the A3 on a long trip -- but so far, a big thumbs up. Anxious to take out to the interstate for a 500 mile shakedown.

Audi TDI

Review

Bought our car Dec 23rd - drove 500 miles home - we are averaging 35 mpg in the break in period. Enjoying the comfort and fun of driving but find the navigation system very deficient compared to our Lexis RX400h system. Wish AUDI offered homelink in this car - the convenience group would be even more convenient with the ability to open at least a garage and neighborhood gate. Irritating rattles in the sunroof are waiting adjustment. Wish AUDI included at least one quart of oil for the break in period. Overall very pleased with this car - would highly recommend.
