Audi A2 1.4 SE 5d (2000/X) - Owner Review

A2 is for the wife, upgraded from an A-Class (I will say no more!). We have a Porsche 993 RS so those who have made negative comments about this 1.4ltr performance need to be realistic - IT IS NOT A SPORTS CAR!

Audi A2 (00-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Paid fair price as a used car. Our previous car (A-Class) was a new purchase at £21k, NEVER AGAIN!

Costs

3 out of 5

Being Audi, parts a bit pricey but it is all relative.

Performance

As noted above, IT IS NOT A SPORTS CAR!

Reliability

3 out of 5

We bought with 3rd party Warranty - PAS pump went, costs over £700 to replace. We have just had suspension top-mount and spring failure - costs £300 to repair. May need new gearbox as it rattles in 4th gear from 25mph to 45mph - new box is £1500 fitted.

German engineering - as our Porsche - it is well built, reliable, costs an arm & a leg so expect fewer on the road compared to the competition and everyone seems to like it. Ours is the Pine Green Pearl metallic with beige interior - fantastic combo.

Comfort

5 out of 5

A-Class gave me a back ache on a 100-mile journey, A2 is so much more comfortable.

Gearbox
Rattles in 4th from 25mph to 45mph. When hand is placed on gearstick in the rattling 4th, rattle goes away. Seems like 'something' is obstructing gear sitting.

Other
Suspension failure as noted above.
