2011 Audi A5 2.0T Premium quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
12 Months in and the car has been in the shop a dozen times.
This time for 10 days.
The car is a beauty.
Drives well (Not a BMW). And is quattro.
It has a a full trunk and the design is great.
The reality is that the shifting is very suspect.
It does not engage properly at slow speeds which is a safety issue when you accelerate.
Audi says there is no issue.
The bluetooth works when it wants to and the ipod hook up works when it wants to.
I like the car but will never ever buy another Audi. Audi corporate is a nightmare and the build quality just is another nightmare.
My service advisor is a good guy and we just laugh every time I call.
Top goes down and there is Quattro.
There is a full trunk with a convertible.
Fix the transmission.
And admit that there is a problem with the transmission.
Also, fix the electronics in the car.
I have been driving an 2011 A6 loaner that has the same electronic problems that my A5 Cabriolet has.
Just not built well.
