I'm looking to buy a an a5 but have heard a couple of accounts of these in particular having oil consumption issues, leading to more progressive issues later on. Is this a safe choice or do I need to be careful around this particular model?

The oil consumption issue was isolated to the 2.0 TFSI engine (perhaps affected some 1.8 also?), but not the diesel. Even then, this was ironed out by 2012 model year as far as I recall.

Charlie mate PLEASE show us yer car or yer lady instead of you!!!! As Dan states the diesel engines have never suffered oil consumption problems and are great engines.
