Not Reliable...Never Again!
By futureman001 on


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


Just after warranty, the manifold went bad.
The injectors went bad.
After five years of ownership the main engine seal and the oil separator went bad ($2,000) and the fuse housing under the hood melted ($675).
I have been driving for 32 years and I have gotten bad gasoline with this car twice.
Never before in 32 years has that occurred.
The car is over engineered and too temperamental.
VW's I've owned were also unreliable.
If you have plenty of money and time to spend at the shop, you may consider this a fun car.

Best Features

Love the exterior design. A little cramped inside.

Worst Features

Audi/VW needs to finally fix their habitual electrical problems as well as other recurring issues.
