Audi A3 Hatchback (03-12)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'd like to think its "discreet subtle class". I don't want a car which screams out "look at me!"

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone seems to love it. Admiring glances everywhere I go.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No doubt about it up to now, yes. Wouldn't mind the 170bhp version next time though.

What are you likely to buy next?
A3 sportsback (5 door version) 170.

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
Wouldn't go as far as saying it was a good deal, but it was worth it. You do get what you pay for.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I did want something more "upmarket".

What was the dealer like?
The usual all smiles attitude. Not particulary great on the whole.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic. But then again I would say that coming from an old mk3 golf! It really is though, sticks to the road, powerful, economical, refined. Spot on.

What's it like to park?
Easy. I'm just very careful where I park it, as other drivers aren't so careful!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Thankfully not! Only got it last month. Everything feels rock solid and the engine is strong, and pulls well in every gear. Lovely motorway cruiser. Should have no trouble.

What's most practical about your car?
Plenty on space in the back, even though it's a 3 door.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Auto dimming rear view mirror and auto lights.
