What should I look for in a used Audi A2 hatchback?
The good news is that the Audi A2 is a good deal more reliable than the average car, according to data supplied to us by Warranty Direct. This means that, hopefully, those big repair bills will be few and far between.
Over half the faults reported on the A2 are electrical, so take plenty of time to make sure that all the gadgets work properly, and check the service history for any past problems. Because electrical issues can be hard to spot on a short test drive, a pre-purchase inspection might also be wise.
The turbo on the diesel engine can fail, too, which is another costly replacement.
