It has a smooth ride and is great on gas.

My vehicle is comfortable and has a smooth ride. It requires little maintenance. I have the navigation system as well and it is a little off in its directions in certain locations but it is only off by a little bit. Sound system is a great and I like that the CD player is in the glove compartment since I do not use it often. Gas mileage is also very good and reasonable. One thing that I would adjust is when the tire light comes on saying my tire is low in air it doesn't always specify which tire. I have to go through each tire myself and see which tire needs it. I also feel like it is difficult to see out the back window when I am reversing. The back window seems narrow. I have owned a lot of cars though and this car is my favorite and I will continue to buy.

Rides very smooth, great on gas. Love that the screen goes down once car is off.

My 2015 Audi a3 is great. Rides very smooth, is very great on gas but I do have problems with it either leaking or burning oil quick. I used to have a 2012 Audi a4 before this one and had the same problem with the oil leak. I love how the seats can be adjusted just the way you want it with even back support and the headrest can be adjusted as well. You or you passenger will never be driving uncomfortable. Door lock automatically once you start driving and unlock once you put the car on park. Also if the passengers door is open and you try to drive the car automatically put the emergency break on. I love my car just wish maintenance wasn't so pricey.

Audi a3, wonderful handling and fun to drive, this car offers the whole package.

This car is for driving. It is super responsive, gas, break, this can cause some jerkiness but once you get to know the car you will overcome that. It is a small car but I am able to carry a good amount with me. I wouldn't recommend for a family car. It also takes 89 at the gas pump which is a little pricier but guarantees better performance. The car has such a smooth ride, it beeps when you surpass 80mph. I haven't had any issues with it so far and I have had it for almost a year. Another fun feature is the car will make a loud noise to remind you if you forgot to turn off the lights (if you choose to do manual, the car has a auto feature).
