Audi A3 1.9 TDI Quattro Sport (130ps) 5d (2002/52) - Owner Review

If have not yet had a drive in a TDI, then try the 130bhp and you will never think of a Diesel in the same way. No rattle or smoke, but instead a pleasant rumble when accelerating.

Audi A3 (96-03)

Value

5 out of 5

You will be hard puched to find cars, which hold their value as well as a sought after A3.

Costs

4 out of 5

Whilst costly, this is a car you need to drive and you will appreciate the additional cost for reliability, image and style.

Performance

5 out of 5

This car will surprise most people. For a Diesel, this car is very quick.

Reliability

5 out of 5

I purchased this car in July 2002 and have driven 8,500 miles in 7 months and I have had no problems.

Image

5 out of 5

You will rarely find an image of style and prestige like in an Audi.

Comfort

4 out of 5

This car is very comfortable for two and the driving position is very good. Fortunately for us, the lack of rear leg and headroom is not a problem. Make sure rear passengers are less than 5' 8".

Security

I have the upgraded Audi alarm system for the A3 and have had no problems with.

Service

5 out of 5

I imported this car directly from an Audi Dealer in Germany for £18,800. As you can imagine, the A3 Quattro Sport 5-dr at £20k OTR (in my case £25,500 RRP with all the toys) is a lot of money.
