A GTI wagon

by Since59 from Vallejo, CA on Mon Apr 23 2012

I needed to replace my 11 year old TT roadster with a larger car. I was looking at 2-3 year old A4 Avants but they were too expensive. Last week I bought an A3 used with 30k on the odometer. I just finished a 1000 mile road trip in 100+ degree heat at an average speed of 85 mph without a single problem. Great power from the 2.0 turbo that emits a wonderful snarl when you floor it and the dual clutch transmission is an able dance partner in the twisties. The dual zone AC kept the cabin of my black on black skyroof equipped A3 cool and comfortable while we cruised through the Mojave desert and the engine temp needle never budged past the middle of the dial. Great little car!

Reliable and relaxing.

by Donna Toast from Sacramento CA on Wed Apr 11 2018

This car has just enough room for comfort and I feel that it meets all of my needs while still being luxury. I commute to work and it makes my drive a dream every time I'm going to work.

Most fun and cool car I have ever owned.

by audilover from Brooklyn, NY on Sun Apr 01 2018

My car met all my sporty needs (extra kick when I most needed it) with compact size comfort (easy to park in the city) and lush European style.

Our Take on the 2009 Audi A3


The Audi A3 hatchback is an amalgam of sportiness and practicality. It's an ideal vehicle for a time when buyers are concerned about gas prices and fuel economy.

The American market has often been cool toward hatchbacks. The A3 is an attractive combination of athletic handling, versatile cargo space and premium features.

The A3 is offered only as a five-door hatchback, and prices start at $26,920 for the 2.0-liter turbo. The quattro all-wheel-drive model begins at $30,500. The top model is a 3.2-liter V-6 quattro, and it begins at $36,975.

The test car was a 2.0-liter quattro model. While all-wheel drive is helpful in slippery conditions, the high-performance tires on 18-inch wheels were not very good... Read More
