Pretty But With Issues
By trakkarclay on


2011 Audi A5 2.0T Premium quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


People will go out of their way to tell you how much they like the looks, but the car has issues and I sold mine after 10 months for a pretty steep write down.

The 2.0 lags off the line
The doors are incredibly heavy and passenger door lacks a gripable handle
Mileage with 4 cylinders is only 25 MPG
AC and heat loud and not effective
Console box is too small
Stock tires have no traction on wet road
Car very hard to dry after washing, water drips from the mirror and back license frame
Very low position, hard to see front - I popped 3 tires in 10 months
Cabin noise pretty high on highway.

Best Features

The lines. The Y-spoke rims. The handling.

Crazy bad move selling so quickly for what are nit-picky items. Door handle grip??? Fuel economy was dead in center of range and 25mpg is what is advertised combined. Few cars of this year would better it. Loud HVAC? Console box size? Drips after washing? Seriously? Low seating position? Did you not test drive it? Wow, this is good news for this car, most people have much more serious issues.
