Best car we've ever owned

We use this Q3 every day for commuting to our nearest town. It has the best fuel efficiency of all our cars to date. We service it every 15,000kms and spare parts are readily available. It has some little glitches but on the whole it is luxurious , comfortable and economical. The only thing which it lacks is android compatibility to throw the GPS to the multi-media screen (which is available in later models) Love it Show details

  Q3 8U TFSI

Comfort and luxury

I use my car for dropping kids off at school, groceries and even on annual holidays interstate. It’s comfortable and has many features including park assist and in built massage seats for the front. The only problem I have with my car is servicing, it’s very expensive compared to my previous Honda Civic. However, I will always stick to European cars from now on. Show details

  Q3 8U TFSI

Perfect family car

There is a reason why this car is so popular - stylish looks, excellent handling, good fuel efficiency and a premium Audi badge at a reasonable price. Improvements from the 2014 model are to the powertrain, suspension, and most notably the updated front grille and new bi-xenon headlights with daytime LED runlamps.

Would not hesitate to reccomend this car to anyone.

Great small SUV

One of the very few SUVs on the market still available in manual transmission! Very smooth handling with great insulation meaning that you can barely hear road and traffic noises in the car. Does 720ks on a full tank and pay an average of $80 to fill it up every 3 weeks. If you’re looking for an suv for a bigger boot capacity this may not be the car for you as the boot space is average, however it will fit 2 large suitcases and 2 carry on luggage exactly (tried and tested!). Personally I love this car having gone from a Ford Fiesta hatchback and finding that the size suited me perfectly as I didn’t want anything too big and scary!

Great car

After months of shopping around for a family car, we decided on the Audi Q3. Back when we purchased it in 2015, it was the smallest in the SUV family although it suited us just fine when we were a family of 3. However, now with a second car seat, the middle seat of the car is unusable - I can just manage to fit a handbag in there. That said, the car handles greatly, looks sleek and stylish and has a very comfortable interior. The customer service at Audi is second to none and it is for these reasons that we’ll be upgrading to a Q5 or Q7 in the near future. The only downside to buying is that the base models are very basic and quite expensive to add extra features, and the servicing costs are quite high.

Great car and great value

We have owned this car for almost 4 years. To date we have had VERY little issues with this car. We do daily round trips of around 180km and we have found this car to be very economical with especially diesel petrol.

The car handles very well on all types of surfaces including wet and dry. The internal of the car is nice but certainly not in the same class as any luxury vehicles.

Love this car - so happy we purchased!

Love this car! Great steering, awesome speed pick up! Quiet for a diesel. The interior is slick - Audi can always make things look great in a simple and not over the top way. Great on fuel - I get over 1,000km's a tank. The owners before us had children, and considering they were young - the leather has held up pretty well! I was worried if we would have enough cabin space when the seats where down, but compared to my car before (Jeep Patriot), it is very similar. We will definitely look at Audi again when we are ready to upgrade.

Questions & Answers

Ron L
Ron L · Q3 8U (2012-2024)

Why have the TPMS,ABS,ANTI SKID,POWER STEERING , LOW TYRE PRESSURE warning lights appear in the dash? Also the message that the start stop function is not operational appears on occasions.
The vehicle still operates as intended but there must be an electrical issue that underlies these issues

If a fault is diagnosed by an ‘A grade mechanic’ prior to the end date of the warranty, is it still covered under the warranty or does the fault need to be diagnosed by an Audi dealership?
