Audi A3 1.6 Sport 5d (1999/V) - Owner Review

Sports seats are great. Side armrests are a little too low and a little too high for complete comfort, but still great driver's position.

Performance

4 out of 5

Great performance / used to drive a 1.3 Ford '94 plate - seems to be similar fuel consumption / of course accelation is much much better.

Reliability

5 out of 5

I'm a moderate 250 miles per week usage. Very good for long trips especially.

Enough Q-DOS for the masses, who would love to own own if only they could afford a newer one.

Comfort

Sports seats are great. Side armrests are a little too low and a little too high for complete comfort, but still great driver's position.

Alarmed and immobilised.

Will be expensive to service - circa 12/2002 ie £300 (major) and £170 (minor).

Problems

Bodywork
Perfect!

Engine
A 1.6 is a moderately powered engine - lets just say it will get you out of trouble when you need it.

Gearbox
A little stiff, but with time it will wear well.

Other
Clutch is so smooth! You won't even feel a gear change.
