...I had test drives in the G37, TT and A5 and had to think long and hard on what was a very difficult choice.
The A5 finally won me over with its fabulous lines matched perfectly to a class leading interior and Audi build quality.
I'm giving up a 2003 BMW 330ci which I really love for this car.
I came to the conclusion that there comes a time in life when it's not the fastest 0-60 time that matters.
The A5 is responsive enough for me (although the D position is pretty woeful for spirited driving) in sport or manual shift mode.
Driving home from the dealership (83 miles)...

Great small SUV

..."I purchased my sidekick in July 07 with 86K miles on it and the only major thing the previous owner had done was a cluch change at 75K.
I drove it all over Germany for two years, in all conditions, and it alway performed well.
It drove straite and true at speeds of 95 MPH plus on the autobon.
At 14 yrs old and 110K miles it still gives me 28 MPG highway and 23 city.
The engine is powerful enough to tow my 18 ft bass boat and/or a 5'x8' trailor loaded with fire wood at highway speeds.
The 4x4 system works very well also. I like to do a little off roading and I have...

...For the money, one of the best cars I have owned. I have received so much interest from other drivers whether driving it or walking up and people stopping to inquire.
Driving impression for such a heavy car is terrific and well balanced.
The all wheel drive and 19 inch wheels no doubt compensate.
One reviewer complained about the steering. I don't see it.
I have not heard rattle, squeak or shutter. The fit and build quality is tremendous.
Plus, you're not seeing yourself coming down the road in a 3 series. The v6 has great power. The V8 blows you away, but so does the...

Reliable and won't quit.

...Bought this car recently ( August 8,2009). Has 150,000 miles on it and previous owner said it has the same 1.5 liter engine, never been rebuilt and doesn't smoke.
Starts right up every time and still has decent power with a 5 speed manual.
Easy to work on for the DIY Mechanic and I look forward to keeping this car for another 100,000 miles.
Parts are cheap and readily available at the local auto parts store.
I'm averaging 31 MPG in city/hwy driving with the A/C on. Good little car and easy to maintain. If you find one for sale, buy it and you won't be disappointed...

its not too bad

..."ppl say htere are a few kinks to it. They fust dont know how to maintain a vehicle.
If you drive right and optimize power through shifting with a 5 speed manual then she runs smooth.
Mine is stock other than tho cold air intake and a bored engine but its pulling 6 on a quarter and 30 to 70 in 7. o and dont replace the fuel pump just smack the valve with a hammer."...

A5- Neck Breaker !!!!

...After 3 months I still look back at it and smile, the lines are great, the LED lights are AWESOME
!! Being 1 of 3 in my area an S5 nothing to say about that,
but the other A5 has the basic, if u can spend the money get the upgrades 19", B&O system and as I'm reading the reviews the standard leather isn't good, I have the Milano and can't complain.
I will say seat positioning is hard to find, but i haven't found a car that makes it easy!
I also have the Dynamic Control. If u like to be aggressive sometimes it's worth it,
the car totally changes under you (Trans, Suspen...

2009 A5 The Ultimate Coupe
Source: Edmunds

...Amazing value. I've owned a 911Cab, 535i, SL55AMG and CL500 in the past 5 years.
Ridiculous yes but I like cars. None of these come close to my new loaded '09 A5 for the dollar.
Yes, the SL55 had the power & torque but not the value or the back seat for kids.
I also drove the S5 but glad I bought the A5 instead with drive select.
Sometimes I want the 911 handling and other times the Lexus sofa.
With DriveSelect, its your decsion and it all works! I predict MB, BMW and Lexus will lose market share to Audi over the next few years and rightfully so. "Car of the Year"...

2009 A5 got it right!
Source: Edmunds

...I had a 2008 A5 on order, but fortunately I delayed the order so I could get a 2009.
Worth the wait. I traded a RS6 and am far happier.
Don't feel like I gave up much performance (yes, I drove the S5 also) but the gained a 50% or better increase in mileage.
Handling is the best of any Audi I've owned. Car is beautiful and I have gotten more compliments on the car than I had with the Porsche Carerra.
The '09 has the Audi sensors on the side mirrors that show a warning light for traffic in your blind spot.
There is on the fly control of steering, suspension, and shift...
