2006 Audi A3 2.0T 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


... and just passed 65,000 miles. Still love driving the car. Clutch still good. So far, failures are: a/c compressor, turbo valve, psgr lock button and radiator gave way at 52,000 miles; the last one really got me bent 'cause the car was just out of warranty. Now have check engine light on, but car is running fine. Coded as fuel cap leak, so not worried. Car is on third set of tires. Original pirellis VERY noisy when worn, got zeons then yokahamas. Zeons good but wore out in about 5 minutes, yokahamas are a good compromise.

Best Features

Engine, handling, BRAKES, looks, gearbox, overall performance, comfort (in front), utility of hatchback design.

Worst Features

Fuel economy, spotty reliability, wheel hop, comfort (in back).
