Audi Owner Car Reviews

2019 Audi Q5 50 TDI Quattro Sport review

This is my first experience of an Audi and it was third in line behind Mercedes and BMW sixes. The Mercedes was a disappointment to drive, and this Audi represented far better bang for bucks than BMW. Having owned a Volvo already, another one of these would have been first choice, but I wanted a six-cylinder and they do not exist under the Volvo brand...

2013 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

This is my third A4. My first experience with a German car was an A4 B5 2.4-litre V6 quattro with a 5-speed manual. The second was the A4 B6 1.8-litre S-line quattro with a 6-speed manual. After 10 years of ownership and 220,000 kilometres, repairs and servicing were starting to cost more than the car was worth, so it was sold...

2013 Audi A5 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

I bought this 2013 Audi 2.0 TFSI A5 Coupe at the beginning of September 2019 and could not be happier. I am only 20 years old so this is only my second car, my first being a 2011 Holden Commodore Wagon. I have grown up in family that has had many different cars that we take pride in; my father owns a 1967 Pontiac Firebird, a 2017 HSV R8 LSA and my mother owns a Lexus RC 350 Racing Coupe...

2017 Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI Design review

Downsizing from 7-seater (Kia Sorento) now that the kids have their own cars, I wanted a small, comfy SUV that would normally carry one or two occupants, with four at a stretch. Yes my knees and back are shot, so climbing down into a car is not fun. After considering the Subaru XV and Toyota CHR, I was surprised that a 2-year old Audi Q2 was the same price as those...

2011 Audi A8 4.2 TDI Quattro review

As I grew older and wiser, and as I came to the realisation that there is no place for “sports” driving on Australian roads, I began to covet the pleasures of luxury motoring and low-revving low-stress diesel performance. You cannot go past the Audi A8 4.2TDI in this regard. The interior style and finish is to die for...

2009 Audi TT S 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

My wife called me a MAMIL when I bought my first compression tights the other day. I thought she was referring to my “manliness”, but alas I was wrong. I didn’t know what a MAMIL was, so I googled it. It stands for: Middle Age Man In Lycra. It is an expression that has been used in the past 10 years to describe middle-aged males (I’m 44) buying expensive bicycles instead of the old days of buying an expensive sports car...

2014 Audi S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

2014 Audi S3 Sedan: The Ultimate One Car Garage under $50K When I was shopping for a car to finally replace my rapidly ageing V35 Skyline, I had one goal in mind: finding the ultimate all ‘rounder car for under $50K. I didn't need any off-road capability, so the requirements were: a comfortable, luxury interior, daily drivable practicality (including reliability, but more on that later), plus great power and nimble handling...

2018 Audi TT RS Quattro review

So, three months on and I’ve started to get comfortable with my new TT, which replaced my 911 (for reference). Now, the TT is fast, very fast. The fastest car I have ever owned. The engine is glorious and the gearbox a perfect match. It sounds wonderful when it moves – did I say how well it moves? The cabin is a wonderful place to be when it’s cruising or flying, as the cockpit was designed like a pilot's seat – it is perfect...

1999 Audi A4 1.8 Turbo Quattro Avant review

By accident I appear to have become a place of refuge for the unloved high-kilometre Audi. Having previously written an owner review of my ’06 Audi A3 with 216,000km on the odo’, I am now the proud owner of a 1999 Audi A4 1...

2011 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

I’ve had my Audi for over 4 years now and have been meaning to write a review for most of that time. For an owner review, though, later is often better: by now I’ve got plenty of experience to share. I bought it in 2014 when I was looking at a car to replace my aging 2005 Lexus IS300...

2016 Audi S3 2.0 TFSI S Tronic Quattro review

My S3 gets the balance right. Friends told me the S3 is just a Golf R in a pretty dress. Not worth the extra outlay. Maybe, but my daily drive – VW’s Wolfsburg Edition Golf R – just didn’t feel like $61K worth (drive-away). Certainly a great car, but a lot of money for a Golf. I must admit, I’d been tempted by the seductive shape of Audi’s S3 sedan for some time...
