2007 Audi A3 3.2 Quattro

Upon test-driving it, i thought this car was a better used car than many other 'similar' new cars i drove costing much more. Fun car to drive and somewhat versatile being a hatchback, albeit a small one! Maintenance on the car has so far been largely routine with only one 'electrical' problem that was traced to a corroded ground that was draining the battery at one point. Other than that its been quite reliable.
