Audi A5 2.0TDI 177HP Multi Engine

Hi Everybody,

I am about to buy Audi A5 2.0TDI Multitronic 177HP Sportsback from 2014. This car was effected by the VW/Audi TDI NOx cheat program. So it has been software upgraded recently.

I would like to know how good or bad this engine/car are? Is there any serious common problems with this car model?

I bought a 2015 plate 2 weeks ago, although it hasn't had the software upgrade.

Love the car, however i find it has less torque than the Passat i had previously (177HP DSG).

I test drove 2 other A5 177 cars, strangely both performed differently to my A5 and the Passat...... No idea what that's all about. One was v. rapid, the other couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding.

My advice, make sure you test drive a few cars, just to give you that comparison/benchmark to help make sure you get the right one for you.

For me the car is 90% perfect, once my warranty ends i will be getting it remapped, to give me the extra few mpg and lower end torque..... and it'll be 100% perfect!

No regrets here.

Mine had the software upgrade at a dealers a few weeks back. TBH I didn't notice any difference.

ok. the car has basic navigation? Is there any chance to upgrade to MMI plus with software only or does that need hardware change as well?
