Audi – owners reviews

  • See what current owners really think of their cars
  • Find out the verdict on different Audi models
  • Use Parkers Owners' reviews to leave your own review

When you’re shopping for a used car, knowing the models to avoid and the ones you should buy can be a major help.

The best way to find this out is by asking a number of different people that own the car what they think. Of course, you might only know one person that owns an Audi A4 which still isn’t much help. However, this is where Parkers Owners' reviews can help out.

We’ve got thousands of reviews from real car owners. So if you want to know what to know just how useful the boot of the Audi A6 Avant is or any problems that come with owning an Audi TT Coupe, then you can search our archive of owners' reviews to find the answer.

 Audi A3 Sportback (04 on)

For: The big deal for many of the A3 owners is the performance. Martin Astin says: “It feels well planted with plenty of grip, a very good turn of speed too”. As well as the performance, the A3 has been getting some positive feedback for its fuel economy too. Mike Sposw claims that his 2.0-litre TDI 170bhp Black Edition model is averaging 50mpg, and even 60mpg on some routes.

Against: Despite all the praise for the performance, there are some criticisms about the ride. Alex More has particular problems with the 2.0 TFSI S Line model, warning people off by claiming “The ride will crucify your back.” Anil Patel also claims that the steering is too light on the 2.0 TDI SE model.

Audi A4 Saloon (00 - 04)

For: The A4 is the most popular car in the German manufacturer’s range, and there seems to be plenty of owners that can vouch for it. Among them is Phillip Walters who gives some detailed reasons to why he likes his 2.0-litre FSI SE so much: “The suspension is supple without being soft and absorbs most bumps with ease. The cornering and steering are fantastic and it has enough power (150bhp) to be fun when you want it to be.”

Against: There aren’t many A4 owners criticising the car but one of them, Bhapinder Dhaliwal, has had his time in his 1.8T SE blighted with a number of mechanical problems. The problems included lights consistently blowing out, engine being replaced at 80,000 miles and the gearbox ECU also having to be replaced.

Audi A6 Avant (98 - 04)

For: The larger of Audi’s estate models seems to be well liked by owners. The obvious traits are highlighted by a number of people including Rene Bullinga, who says: “Great luggage space. Excellent towing,” of his 2.8-litre Quattro auto model. The car’s ability on longer journeys is also praised with Richard Bentham saying his 1.9 TDI SE model is a “great motorway cruiser.”

Against: Despite the reputation for decent reliability, the A6 Avant does take some flak from some owners. Commenting on his 1.9-litre TDI SE, Ian Davis said: “Numerous faults, plus mpg not as good as it should be,” while reeling off a selection of faults including parking sensors not working and the battery failing. One issue that was also highlighted by Andrew Wassall was the high price of parts.

Audi TT (99 - 06)

For: There seem to be two underlining positives for the Audi TT coupe owners. Dave Randall, who posted a review of a 1.8-litre T Quattro (225ps), sums them both up well: “The car is fun to drive, the build quality is superb”. There are plenty more comments about the performance too with Craig Jobson adding: “Amazing power and does not leave you wanting,” about his 1.8 Quattro Sport (240).

Against: Not everyone is completely enamoured with the Audi TT coupe, though. R Lee has the 178bhp version of the 1.8-litre model and things aren’t quite as fantastic for him. First off is the refinement in which he says: “It’s a bit noisy – sometimes feels like the window is not fully up,” while he also bemoans the cars heavy steering at low speeds.
