Early impressions are very favorable
February 4, 2019
I have always driven cars with manual transmissions, beginning with my Saab in 1977. Most recently, I have a 2011 VW Eos but have always admired the appearance of the A5 and thought I might get one in the future. Then I noticed that Audi was phasing out manual transmissions for 2019 and began a search for a used A5. I was lucky to find one at a local dealer with about 30,000 miles and in excellent condition so it was a Certified Pre-Owned car. I have had it for a month and am really enjoying its 6-speed manual transmission and its many other features. It is a great car for two people but the back seat is pretty cramped, especially in regards to foot room. But for me...everything I wanted for much less than a new one would have cost.
