Audi A3 2.0 fsi tiptronic.This was my first car, very eye-catching and performs like a dream when it is running. COrners exeptionally well and has power when you need it. It is not very fuel efficient,as it only gets 10km per litre on the open road and 9km per litre in urban areas. I had mechanical problems from 300km on the clock. Aircon pump broke and was replaced twice.The dealership put in an A4 aircon the third time. Gearbox broke on 50000km's and had to be replaced.as i am writing this review,it has broken yet again.BOth the sideshafts went on 60000km.the locking system became unresponsive and had to be replaced.All four the ignition coils broke on 78000km and broke yet again on 82000km.MY advice would be to never own an audi A3 out of motorplan and if you want to own this car make sure that it is not your only means of transport! I will NEVER buy an audi again.
