Why the 2008 Audi A5 / S5?

Why Not the 2008 Audi A5 / S5?

Fuel economy

It is not great, and if you have fun with the car, you will get less than 15MPG

Reliability & durability

I have had this car repaired over 10 times. Clutch (multiple times), door electronics, dealer incompetence, Catalytic converter, misfires, power window issues, A/C freezing issues all before 45k miles.

Ride smoothness

It can be very harsh in the NE USA with 19" rims

Past personal experience

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.
