My wife is a pretty savvy car person. When I met her 50 years ago she had just bought a brand new 1968 Camaro with 4 on the floor and a big V8.
She has had BMWs, Range Rovers, Saabs, Etc.
She spent 8 months or so looking at every smallish SUV on the market. The Q3 had the size, style, performance and features she wanted. I feel she made a very well researched buy. I stayed out of the loop as much as I could because I wanted this to be her choice, and wanted to be out of the repair loop as well. Now it is between her and Audi for warranty work for a few years!
I will probably do oil changes and plan to get an Audi specific scanner for resetting maintenance and oil reminders and test
CEL lights and resetting.
I am not a big Audi guy.....more of a Porsche and Saab guy, but I am impressed with he Q3. It is a smart package with good size and styling and well appointed with good electronics package and audio. Engine is nice as is the drive train.
