Review
Had problems with the car since new. Suspension squeezed every time someone got in the car for the first six months. Rear light cluster accumulated about 3 to 4 Centimetres of water every time it was outside in the rain. More recently as a five year old car I have had since new and all service and MOT work done at an Audio. dealership I have had problems I did not expect. Small things such as a very rarely used passenger visor clip breaking, the petrol cap cover breaking and a flap motor behind the glove box for the ventilation breaking and making a noise every time I turn on the ignition. £150 for the petrol cover to be fixed as they have to replace the complete housing. Quoted £502 to repair the ventilation motor which I understand the part cost about £80. They are great at repairing things during the warranty but take you to the cleaners after that.

The most unreliable car I have ever owned. 9 Months ownership, 7 times into garage. Thank god it was covered by a warranty. Cracked spark plugs, oil leaks, Injector coils, sensors. Took Bath Audi 4 -5 months to rectify misfire!!
