Keith R Posted July 7, 2017 Share Posted July 7, 2017 Hi All, I'm in the process of becoming a Audi owner for the first time. (For the last 13 years I've been driving a Honda Civic Type-R.) I've been looking at the A3 Sportsback with S Tronic. I had a test drive of the 1.5 l engine a few weeks back, and today I had a test drive of the 2.0 l engine. One thing worried me: I had the feeling that the engine was labouring, just initially, on pulling away. I don't remember feeling this on my earlier 1.5 l test drive. Can anyone else corroborate this? I've asked for another test drive of the 1.5 l engine as a check. (I live in Milton Keynes, so pulling onto roundabouts as fast as possible is a way of life.) I've scanning other forums and seem to have come across some people say that they switch to manual 1st gear for a fast get away; and others refering to this being a "characteristic"?
