Had it for a year now. Fun to drive. A lot more peppy with the manual tranny. Get 30+mpg setting cruise at 80mph on hwys. Had to replace 6 cd changer because it jammed. Also engine started to smoke at 11K miles. Thinking maybe a piston ring? (I let it set all winter = 4months.) Complete engine replaced. Both replaced under warranty with no hassle. Great dealership. Manual tranny and summer tires not great in the snow, drove my truck all winter. Has a lot standard features that are usually costly options with other brands. Great for daily commutes and short road trips.
Interior not full of cheap plastic like most cars. Great gas mileage. Low cost to own. Good value compared to other brands.
Figure out what caused the engine smoke. Back seat legroom isn't great for adults.
Just bought mine, and I absolutely LOVE it. I have owned an A4, and this car absolutely crushes it in performance! Fun to drive in my day to day activities, but a blast if I really feel like scooting. Comfortable, classy, sporty, all at a better price. Go test drive it.
Engine and handling, no question. Great sound system... Geez, the list goes on.
