Love My A3 3.2 — This Audi A3 3.2 Quattro is very well appointed and a perfect all-around car. Fits plenty of junk in the trunk. The engine and transmission are a perfect match, whether zipping around town or putting on the miles on the highway

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fantastic engine, always plenty of power. AWD is great, especially in the snow. Very easy car to live with - it just fits right.

Cons: Transmission is getting a little jerky (at 140kmi). Fuel mileage isn't great.

Audi A3 2.0t Sport Package- So Much Fun To Drive! — My favorite part about this car is the quick acceleration- it is nice to have a gas-saving turbo charged engine with a lot more power than most. Also, I love the classy look of this hatchback- making a hatchback look good is not always easy to do but Audi has done it perfectly. The moon roof in the front and the skylight in the back is a huge favorite for my daughter- almost like having a glass ceiling! Of course the steering wheel controls make driving easy and carefree. This A3 is low maintenance and is just a great example of premium Audi quality.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love this car- turbo charged engine is perfect and so much fun to drive. Handles well with large cargo capacity.  Premium Bose sound system is excellent. Also, the comfy leather seats are very luxurious not to mention the incredible gas mileage saves us lots of money every month

Cons: No cons- just selling the car because it is a little small for my growing family.

Audi Delivers Big In The Little A3 3.2 S-line Quattro — Performance-- 3.2L Quattro gets me there in ANY weather, passing the big Ford 350s as they slip slide in the rain or snow. Breaking... I need to test this out more. Handles like a katana in the hands of an angry master ninja. Mileage--my wife gets 24-26 mpg...i get around 17 the way I drive it. Appearance...Beautiful in any light, great commuter car amid the plain jane trucks and Korean wanna-be european knock-off look-a-like cars. Audi bumper to bumper warranty is beautiful peace of mind.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Beautiful lines and handling

Cons: Distance to travel to get it serviced by the Audi Dealership (2 hours)

Audi Review — This car is a ton of fun for the money. OK it is just a rebadged VW with Audi styling but they did a good job. The 2L Turbo is a great engine that still gets 29MPG on the highway. And the DST tranny is quick shifting.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine, Looks, manuverability

Cons: Not sure about long term durability, we'll see.

Great Car But Over Priced Vs It's 2.0t Sibling — Great Car at an unrealistic premium to the 2.0 turbo - Could be justified when the 2.0T was only available in FWD, but with the 2.0T now available in Quattro, there's no reason to pay a premium for the V6. The V6 is somewhat thirsty, unless you are very disciplined, and weighs more than the 2.0T. The DSG gearbox is outstanding, but longevity is somewhat unproven.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great handling, but not great fuel economy

Cons: No reason to pay a premium fo rthe V6 now the 2.0 is avail with 4WD

Amazing Little Car - A Great Sprinter — The performance is amazing in the 3.2. Acceleration from 0-60 is better than claimed. and turning is tight and agile. Braking is highly responsive. It's a fun car for the free spirited person who is willing to take it onto the race track or icy roads. She is just like a little gymnist who is also a sprinter.

Pros: Acceleration and turning

Cons: well - it's an audi.  eletronics can be funny at time.

A3 — The DSG is God sent you get the wonders of a manual with the luxury of a automatic! The 2.0T is an amazing little engine with plenty of HP and Torque to spare. As a Sport wagon a big advantage is the cheaper insurance!

Pros: The Drive Train!

Cons: No winter package in Montana, thats my fault it is an option

Audi A3 2.0 Tdi Sportback Dsg S Line 5 Door - My Car — Want a German car that actually handles like a German car, but can afford the 'BIG' BMW's or Mer Benz ...... then Audi A3 S line TDi 4 door is the one. I liked it so much, this 1 is my 2nd A3 & I plan to upgrade soon to another Audi. So go on what are you waiting for, go get your own.

Pros: Quick car, excellent handling, cleverly designed, beautiful exterior

Cons: Could more more econmical on fuel
