2009 Audi A3 2.0T quattro 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Went to my local dealer and drove a 2009 A3 2.0 quattro with bluetooth, open sky, and satellite radio. Even though I thought I wanted a manual again I got such a good deal plus really wanting quattro I bought the 09. The DSG transmission is growing on me. I have always maintained my Audi's and never had any reliability issues other than normal wear and tear items. The A3 is well built and is versatile. It is a perfect car for running errands in town but also does well on longer trips.

Best Features

The DSG transmission has become my favorite feature of the A3. I can drive in automatic when in traffic or become a formula 1 racer with my paddle shifters. Quattro is a beautiful thing when you live in snow country.

Worst Features

The shift point in sport mode is too high. In the A6 it is about 4000 rpm which is about right. In the A3 it is about 5200 which seems too high.
