Audi A5 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi A5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
A5 slow to accelerate
From your description I would agree with you that it doesn't appear normal, although road testers talk of mild turbo-lag at takeoff. Mild turbo lag doesn't seem to equate to extremely sluggish, but it would be worth your while to drive other similar A5s to get a feel for them as well. Perhaps your dealer might be able to arrange for you to drive a demonstrator.Show more
Suitability of an A5 Sportback as a used buy?
In my view buying a used European car is risky, they're expensive to service and repair, and more things tend to go wrong with them as the kilometres climb.
You're more likely to hit snags with them than you are with less exotic cars from other parts of the world. With Audis you should try to ascertain if they are using oil, and you should thoroughly check the operation of the automatic transmission.
Once you have chosen a car I would urge you to have it checked by a mechanic experienced in Audis or VWs.Show more
Why is my A5 using so much oil and what can I do about it?
I don't think there's much that can be done, apart from paying up and having the test done. The car is a 2009 model and I doubt that you would get any joy out of Audi regarding the cost of the test. VWs and Audis are renowned for using some oil, and that's one of the risks of buying a used one. What you need to know is how much oil it is using, and if that is a problem.Show more
