    My car

    Ab fab but the rubber grommets on one front wiper and the rear wiper failed to keep out three years' worth of wet, and the mechanisms seized up.

    Check and lubricate well, before a DIY task involving one and half days to loosen.

    My car

    This is a brilliant car - very good quality. I have owned 100s of cars and this is one I would recommend. The only point to remember is to get it serviced at the correct times.

    My car

    An amazing car, which with correct servicing can go for almost ever!

    It's very economical to run and the engine and gearbox are both very good.

    Although I have had a new steering rack and the air-con repaired, it continues to go strongly and drive as well as cars which have done far less milage.

    It has excellent paint quality but has some paint chips, which I will need to see to.

    For a car which has now covered an amazing 265,000 miles! I see no reason to change it. Outstanding, well done Audi.

    My car

    I have owned my 1.8 SE Avant for only two weeks and already I am convinced it is the best car I have owned. This is my 20th car since 1987 and, although I'm not going to list all my previous vehicles, they have all been mainstream.

    I often wondered what all the fuss was about with German cars but the quality and comfort even after 75,000 miles is superb. If there is a down side then the only thing I can think of is the size of the boot. I can't get my dog kennel in - it's about two inches too short. (I'll try the A6 next time.)

    The ride is smooth and driving is effortless, even from the non-turbo version, yet still retains high 30s mpg. The version I own has the optional leather upholstery, which after 5 years and 75,000 miles still looks new.

    I would recommend this model to anyone who wants a practical comfortable mode of transport as long as you are not in the removals trade.
