Very unhappy with quality of Car
By rpm15 on


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


12 Months in and the car has been in the shop a dozen times.
This time for 10 days.
The car is a beauty.
Drives well (Not a BMW). And is quattro.
It has a a full trunk and the design is great.
The reality is that the shifting is very suspect.
It does not engage properly at slow speeds which is a safety issue when you accelerate.
Audi says there is no issue.
The bluetooth works when it wants to and the ipod hook up works when it wants to.
I like the car but will never ever buy another Audi. Audi corporate is a nightmare and the build quality just is another nightmare.
My service advisor is a good guy and we just laugh every time I call.

Best Features

Top goes down and there is Quattro. There is a full trunk with a convertible.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission. And admit that there is a problem with the transmission. Also, fix the electronics in the car. I have been driving an 2011 A6 loaner that has the same electronic problems that my A5 Cabriolet has. Just not built well.
