Should I Buy the 2022 Audi Q3?

The Q3 is an agile and refined subcompact SUV that delivers much of the luxury trimmings of a larger model in a smaller, more maneuverable package. It’s stable and poised and offers good comfort in its front and rear seats. Gas mileage is disappointing, however, and some shoppers might find the ride too firm with the available 19-inch wheels.

I love my car!

I usually lease my cars. I loved this one so much, I bought it. My only issue is that it was recalled 4 months after I purchased it. Sue to the supply chain issues, it took nearly 4 months for the parts to fix it. I did have a loaner for the 4 months, but it was disappointing. I love the car and would purchase again.

Fun and sporty

Windshield washer sprayers are from 1970s only spray bottom half of window. Jerky when auto shifting, don’t feel turbo Overall Sporty car, fun to drive.
