Great All Rounder — I thought this would be the perfect keeper car - like a swiss army knife of sorts. It had many great qualities save for two that led to it's sale - first, the front edge seat bolster was uncomfortable against back of thigh. Second, the 8-speed auto was ok but not quick enough to make it as fun as I thought it would be.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, quality, smooth, very good power, great MPG

Cons: A bit too boring - needs s-tronic (DSG) very badly

A Good Casual Driver — - Turbo-lag is not significant, but noticeable - Lack of torque is a problem - Fuel economy is great on the highway, averaging up to mid 30's - Good quality construction, very good cabin atmosphere - Cinnamon Brown seats look amazing! - Steering slightly Japanese feeling (artificial), but not entirely, mixture of Japanese and German steering characteristics

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great value

Cons: Handling characteristics far exceed power and drive-train

My Favorite Crossover — We have owned a lot of different vehicles, from an Infiniti G35x to a Tahoe Z71. This is our favorite vehicle of all time. The Quattro gets around much better than my truck with 4WD in the snow and ice. You have to really push it to even get it to slip. As long as the bumper doesn't push too much snow (like, a foot), then it will go, no problem. The fuel economy is awesome at about 28-30 mpg at 70 mph. The power from the 2.0T engine is unbelievable. I still can't believe that they can get that much torque out of a 4 cylinder engine. The seats are firm, but comfortable. We have had a couple of small issues with the car. A whistling noise from the passenger side mirror (dealer fixed in about 10 minutes) and a problem with the Bluetooth phone connection (dealer reprogrammed). The maintenance is a bit expensive. I would definitely purchase the maintenance package (Audicare) that takes care of all maintenance through 45K miles. It's worth it. Again, this is our favorite car ever! A perfect blend of style, comfort, fuel economy, pure performance and fun!!

Pros: Handling, Quattro, Fuel Economy, Size, Power, Style

Cons: None, that I can think of.
