Would Buy Again But As A Used Car — Love the handling and the attention to design and detail the A3 provides. Like the performance from a 4 cyl turbo diesel as well as incredible gas mileage. Love the looks the car gets. Dont like the way it eats front tires nor the 3 recalls, but do like the Audi response to these recalls. Truly a quality car backed by quality company.

Fun, Fuel-efficient Alternative To Dowdy Hybrids — I LOVE this car. It's fun to drive, has exactly the features I want, gets outstanding fuel mileage, has plenty of interior room, despite being narrower than most cars, which also helps protect it from dings in parking lots from inconsiderate parkers.

My 2011 A3 — My Audi is everything that I could have hoped it to be! The performance, engineering, build quality, fuel economy, and telematics are first class. I have been fortunate to own several great cars; such as an Acura, BMW, Hummer, Two Saab Turbos, and a Volvo. This car is an absolute favorite!

A3 Cabrio — Audi A3 1.6 TDi Sport Cabrio. Deep Blue with Cream Leather. Took a long time to get this one over a year on the order book with the dealer. The picture shows it just delivered with 7 miles on it. Great car, good electric roof and heated seats. Drives better and more room than BMW 1 series and VW EOS.

Awesome — What can I say? If you want insanely good gas mileage in a fun to drive car this is the one. It gets up and goes and looks good doing it. Decent price for a quality car. Very nice interior and cool double sunroof.
