Audi A5 / S5 Personal Experiences: Pros

2011 2dr Coupe 354-horsepower 4.2L V8
6-speed manual AWD
I owned a 1998 A4 - logging 234,000 miles on it - prior to purchasing the S5. The A4 was fun to drive, extremely reliable, comfortable, and well built. Even with suspension upgrades (sport springs and shocks) early in its life, the body had no creaks or rattles. It looked nearly new when I sold it and is still going strong with its new owner. full 2011 Audi A5 / S5 review

I have just had too many nightmares with this car at the dealership. I have enjoyed my time behind the wheel but have been left with a bad taste in my mouth with all the powertrain issues. full 2008 Audi A5 / S5 review
