Within 5 months of purchasing this car
I was left stranded on vacation. I was
told the clutch was bad and I was not
able to shift into any gear but 3rd. I
had 2 clutches replaced and the
transmission before it was finally
repaired. In addition over the next 2
years the rear suspension was replaced,
electronics for speedometer and the
front windshield due to a stress crack.
The low profile tires are terrible.
Replaced a total of 8 tires before
hitting 25000 miles. The wheels
constantly get scratched since they
protrude out from the tire. The area
inside the gas cap gets plugged and
when it rains the water is retained.
The car holds the road well and
steering is excellent. Audi does make
the repairs, at no cost, when you take
it in(which is often). I just got use
to driving a loaner car.
They need to put different tires on the
car, and investigate why there are so
many problems with the car. They need
to change the design of the wheels in
relation to the tires.
