I purchased the 2000 Audi A3 one year back and it is now
starting rusting very badly. The rust is under the hood on all bolts
and all over under the car.
i feel that i had done a big mistake by purchasing this car.
Does anybody else had the rusting problem?

this is indeed very strange, if there is one car in my experience that is almost free from rust it must be audi, besides in my area there are a lot of A3 models, i never seen or heard something about rust

your audi is made from galvanised steel, that will not rust. therfore the rusty bolts will not affect any part of the body work, or chassis!


But this is only superfisal rust on the bolts they wont rust through, well not within the next 50 years!
