Audi A3 Hatchback 3.2 V6 quattro Sport 3d DSG (2004/04)

Audi A3 Hatchback 3.2 V6 quattro Sport 3d DSG (2004/04) - Owner Review

Lumpy low speed ride and over-sensitive brakes make smooth travel at low speeds all but impossible. But once on the open road things improve dramatically. Wonderful V6 noise, dependable handling, super-powerful brakes make a special package.

Audi A3 Hatchback (03-12)

Value

This car replaced a Boxster and is far, far better value.

Costs

3 out of 5

25 - 30 mpg and no oil in 14kmiles. Insurance very reasonable considering performance.

Performance

5 out of 5

An absolute rocket with surging acceleration and a slick (in any mode) trick gearbox.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Rear shockers had to be replaced, and door seals creak but otherwise no problems and engenders confidence.
