Audi A2 1.4 SE 5d (2002/51)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
In UK, nothing much, in mainland EU, its definitely a cool car, like gold dust, only more practical ;).

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Always amazed what appear out of the tardis/little tank, and how it does 1500km weekenders on vapour.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, already did, and looking for a 2nd now, maybe different colour for n.3.

What are you likely to buy next?
If Audi are smart enough to relaunch, then reborn A2, otherwise continue to use the saved pennies on our Porsche or swap for Tesla Model X when they are bit more tried and tested.

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
January 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Considering the local market prices at the time yes (cars being 40% more than UK), and road taxes being up to 10x UK (if diesel and normal kgs).

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Comfortable, decent sized car, with good boot, economic on fuel, and lightweight (cars taxed on fuel type and KGs).

What was the dealer like?
Not applicable, private seller.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Pretty peppy for its size/weight/engine, people forget its only 870kgs ;). Suffers as 1.4/75bhp petrol if 4 or 5 up (two individual back seats, only bench has 3 belts).

What's it like to park?
Good once used to it, edges drop off where you expect it, so know where they are.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
At 75k kms and 10 yrs old, front roll bar link (known weakness, easy fixed), boot lock motor solenoid weak and replaced. In 2.5 years only needed petrol and tyres. Upgraded to more powerful A2.

What's most practical about your car?
Removable individual back seats. Once fitted 6 race bikes inside, only front wheels off, plus driver (minus back seats).

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Removable back individual seats, can fit 3 mtn bikes+riders of 1.80m inside, or 2 surfers plus boards.
