The Audi A2 looks nice - economical - good tax. My car has been back to the garage at least 4 times. It has had switches, water pump, expansion bottle top, numerous coils and fan and valves replace.
It still continues to stall, sound like a truck, no power or loses power. Runs constantly hot and has 1 litre of water put in coolant system every other day.
It is going into the garage again tomorrow. They are completely baffled and sick to death of seeing it.
Needless to say I wouldnt recommend… Read Full Review

The dreaded engine management light!! Haha this is on all the time in my 2003 Audi A2 1.6 FSi. The garage where it came from did a full engine rebuild and still could not detect a fault. so they decided the fault was with the warning light!! but they weren't allowed to disconnect it. I also no have brake pad warning light coming on every time I go over a bump. Sure enogh I went it to get my brakes checked and was told that they are fine, nothing wrong with them. Ever so slightly worried… Read Full Review

I've had my car for nearly 3 years and have never had any problems until now. It sometimes does not start on the first go and then takes at least another 3+ attempts to get it started. I took it to a garage and they said they can't identify the problem until it gets worse. They recommended a clean out of the petrol tank which was not guaranteed to overcome the problem… Read Full Review

The A2 is a groundbreaking design incorporating lots of new technology. It looks good and is built to Audi standards of finish.
Mine is the 1.6FSI - the engine is lively and returns excellent MPG (average mixed motoring 44mpg+). However, I have had a specific problem with a failed crank engine sensor which "went" on the motorway with no warning - this caused the car to stall and restart - this has caused engine management problems and a burnt out catalytic converter. Total cost of repairs was… Read Full Review

I fell in love with my Audi A2 from the moment I first drove it. I had changed jobs and needed a practical car that was economical, could carry all my design stuff and display equipment, my dogs and also be different enough to look at. The A2 has all of that and more the build quality is exceptional the climate control is a godsend (go for climate over air con any day) the driving position is perfect (I am 6ft 3 and it's the most comfortable car I have owned). The boot is huge I can leave a lot… Read Full Review

I have had my Audi A2 1.6 FSi from new since January 2003. I love the drive, the look, and the feel. However, my Audi experience is tainted. I was was led to believe that when you buy into the Audi brand you buy into quality, I was wrong. I began driving my A2 with gusto, proud to be driving a car that is reputedly a well designed piece of engineering, with lots of original features, which it has.
Two weeks into my ownership and my Audi experience started to go down hill. My car developed a… Read Full Review

I've had my Audi A2 1.6 FSi for 2 weeks and I love it. Although I never bought it new (11 months)it feels new. Great if you have back problems as you don't fall into it and it is not massive like the usual MPV's. I did a long journey for 3 and a half hours and found it very comfy and was not in agony when I stepped out. Climate control will be cool for our hot spell! and the Symphony stereo and Bose sound system is great. The glove box is great… Read Full Review

Forget the BMW mini, this Audi A2 1.6 FSi Family Car is the true modern mini. It pushes industry technology further using space saving packaging and modern materials for lightness and 'green' purposes. This car is rare and challenges the conservative designs clogging up the road. Although relatively small, the occupants possess plenty of room (think golf interior). Although the car is a mini-MPV which means it is high-sided it does not wallow round corners. In fact the car has a great turn… Read Full Review

Climate control makes pleasant driving. The only bad points are that the Wheels drum on road through vehicle and there is no spare wheel under the bonnet… Read Full Review

I have an A2 as a coutesy car while my A3 (only 4 months old) awaits a new windscreen motor. Although it is not a car I would buy as I prefer the appearance of the A3, I am enjoying driving it. The steering and gearbox don't feel any different to my A3. I have read that the A2 is an extremely environmentally friendly car due to its recyclable aluminium body, low fuel consumption and low carbon dioxide emissions. I am sure it makes a great mini MPV… Read Full Review
