2009 Audi A5 quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have an Audi A5 and it was great until i hit about 35K miles and it started to burn a quarte of oil every 1,000 miles and sometimes i even get 1,400 miles. I am extremly suprised since i drive mostly freeway and do nto drive it very hard. My local dealer agreed with me that this was B.S. but Audi USA refuses to fix it so beware of thsi when lookinng to purchase this car and it is my understadnign that the 2.0Liter needs oil every 850 miles.


Best Features

It has good handling.


Worst Features

Theu use cheap plastic for the buttons and they fade and even bubble as they use some sort of a rubber plastic

2009 Audi A5 quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

my 2009 Audi A5 3.2 manual has been just about flawless. smooth, sexy, quiet and enough performance to make me smile. Have the premium, technology, bang and olufson, side assist and ride select, so it is loaded. Averaging 23-25 mph wnter and summer imn all around driving, 28+ on a trip. Still getting gawked at as it is one of the most beautiful cars on the road. Only one warranty repair in 33,000 miles, a door sensor for keyless entry was replaced. By far the best overall car I've owned in my 67 years


Best Features

ride select, performance, mileade, quiet and comfortable. Radio and smottness


Worst Features

touch screen vav, ventilated seats

Review

Exceptional car. Other than having to buy new tires at 17000 miles, I've had no complaints and a million complements. Good performance, good gas mileage, great handling and outstanding looks. Definitely not another BMW or G-car clone!


Best Features

Styling IMO is Best in Class and with the S-lin package, handling is phenomenal.


Worst Features

A/C cooled seats, shorter throw shifter and a greater interior color selection for the S-line package.

Review

Have all the toys in this car, have driven 7000 miles to date. Owned many cars in my 50 years of driving and this is by far the best. Enough performance and great quiet and comfort. Very smooth in every way. Getting 25+ mpg with no problems to date. If I could build it myself I would trade the mmi for touch screen nav, make the manual a little tighter shifting, but overall the best ride my wife and I ever had!


Best Features

smooth & quiet


Worst Features

Snick snick shifter would be nice, touch screen nav, ventilated seats not yet available.

Review

I've had my 2009 A5 for two months now, and I continue to be delighted every time I take it out of my garage, I feel like a child with a new toy. I'm pampered by the amenities such as the excellent back-up camera, the i- pod integration system, the crisp 6- speed shifter, and the amazingly comfortable seats. I love the screen over the sunroof, which allows a little light but not enough to make me squint against the sun. The exterior styling is quietly elegant - the daytime running lights are cooler than I can say, and I love the keyless entry which keeps me from digging in my purse for my keys. I routinely get 33 mpg on the highway.


Best Features

The lovely black glossy finish. The easy-to-use nav system. The comfortable seats. The acceleration of the 6-speed transmission. All- wheel drive - a "must-have" in North Dakota. My bicycle fits in the back!


Worst Features

The lever for the cruise control can't be seen by the driver - not a problem after the first few uses, but a bit awkward at first. The radio pre-sets are way too arduous to use.
