If you buy a TDI it would have an 11 year 260k km warranty on the powertrain and emissions. So you don't really have to worry about anything. If the car hasn't had their stage 2 fix yet, you may get a new DPF anyway. Maintenance wise it's pretty expensive, but I do the work myself so its cheaper. If you don't do it yourself, all the maintenance stuff is rather expensive like fuel filters, VW504/507 oil (low-ash), etc...FrozenFinger wrote: ↑Nov 6th, 2018 11:12 amBecause I'd drain the battery before I reach my first stop for the day and I'd be left with a 1.4 liter engine pulling a 1600kg car :/ any fuel savings will be lost instantaneously. Plus what's the point of an Audi if it drives worse than a Micra right:D
How's the Golf maintenance wise? I hear stories of DPFs going bad rather quickly, any issues with yours?
As for the A3 e-tron, the 1.4T engine is really frugal. If you do pure city on hybrid drive, expect in the low 4-5L/100km range. It's also not slow, people think its a mule but it goes from 0 to 100km/h in 6.6 seconds which is GTI territory... assuming you have stuff left in the battery. If you don't then it's just over 9 seconds, which is slightly slower than the TDI.
