Currently driving a 2011 A5 2.0T quattro. I have been following the story on this car for over a year now. Just hoping the AWD version does not have the missing content that the IS and GS AWD versions have. Primarily worried about losing the 8-speed when you opt for AWD.

Welcome to the forum

How is that A5 treating you?

Haven't read anything indicating what transmission the RC350 AWD will get.

Only mentions of the 8 speed in the RC350 non AWD.

Thanks, for the welcome, 2011 A5 has been a good car, reliable and beautiful. Audi is ahead of BMW in getting it's reliability improved.
I have had an Audi that was a real lemon in the past.
Audi dealers generally suck, as does the steering in the A5, common in Audis.

Looking to Lexus for better reliability and customer service.

Welcome aboard!

You are more than welcome to share your audi horror story. I have persoanlly never owned an Audi but the more I about them the more I get turned off.

Marcy / Odetta, thanks for the welcomes.

Odetta, I did have an Audi horror story but Audi did step up ultimately. The dealership not so much. I would buy another Audi in the right situation but not from the same dealership. Right now Audi is leading all European manufacturers in reliability, we will see if it lasts. They have a habbit of improving, then blowing it over just a couple years.

One of the things Lexus seems to do better than most car companies (especially the Germans) is ensure their dealerships are providing good customer service.

i would agree having dealt with both audi and lexus dealerships that I prefer the customer service at lexus. is audi really beating out the other brands in reliability? seems like BMWs are not bad. Mercedes still seems like a hit or miss
