Audi A3 (96-03)

Value

5 out of 5

Great investment.

Costs

4 out of 5

Servicing on the A3 is nowhere near as expensive as I thought.

Driving

4 out of 5

I have never felt so safe on the road as I do when I drive an Audi.

Performance

2 out of 5

The 1.6 is not enough for this car. Handling is far from confidence-inspiring, but its brakes are incredible and more than make up for its shortfalls.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Everything they say about Audi reliablility is true. 10,000 miles in 7 months and no problems.

Comfort

5 out of 5

For a smallish car, it's amazingly comfortable. Short, medium or long journeys all feel the same in the A3 so the 'Comfy Armchair' handling pays off somewhere!
