Hello Audi People!

I am a long-time "old Volvo" driver with an interest in buying a newer Audi. Specifically, a 2016 Audi A3 E-tron plug-in hybrid with just under 56k miles on the odometer.

I don't know too much about Audis, certainly not FWD plug-in hybrids, so I am looking for some advice so that I don't end up with a lemon or a vehicle that has too many known issues.

What is your experience with these models? Have they been reliable? At 56k miles, would it be time for a new battery? If so, how much would a new battery cost to purchase and install? Are there any problems about which I should be concerned?

Thanks in advance for your time and expertise!
