SMG is not 6MT

Advertising an auto shifting SMG '08 M5 as having a 6 speed manual wasted my time. Manuals still have three pedals and I am not interested in SMG pump motor failures so this car is not an alternative to me. Three-stars because for what the car is, it appears to be priced appropriately.

#1. Oil consumption - when I purchased this car it used 1 qt oil every 1k to 1100k miles. I took it to the dealer. They worked on electronics and breather and added oil. They told me to drive it until the oil light came on. Record the miles driven. Bring it back for further tests. They took sample of oil and found metal in the oil. I was told that from 2009 - 2012, there was slag on the piston rings causing oil to drip and burn causing excess use of oil. Dealer replaced Pistons and rings. My car does not use any oil. Can go oil change to oil change without adding any oil. #2. Turbo - At approx 51 k miles, engine light came on. Took car to dealer for diagnostics. Turned out to be faulty turbo. Audi extended warranty of 7 years or 70k miles covered this repair. #3. Water pump - Replaced at approx 40k miles. Out of pocket expense. Approx $600.00. #4. Fuel injectors - While I have not had any problems with fuel injectors, there is extended warranty on the injectors of 12 years or 100k miles.

A4 is a total Lemon - Wish we didn't by the Audi

This car has been a total lemon. It is constantly in the shop with one expensive repair after another. The Audi dealership in Raleigh also makes it even worse. Lexus provides a much better experience when we bring in our cars there.

I had this car at 37,000 miles certified preowned. Dealer tried to convince me that oil consumption (quart every 1000 miles ) is normal with turbo which is complete bullsh.... It was repaired at the warranty since I didn't believed and never stopped complaining. " Under the settlement agreement, current owners or lessees who have not already paid to have repairs made will be entitled to a replacement of the crankcase pressure regulating valve, front crankshaft seal and front crankshaft bolt. Additionally, the engine control module software will be updated to match the new part(s). The agreement also gives owners and lessees an extended warranty of 4 years/50,000 miles to 8 years/80,000 miles (whichever occurs first) to cover any repair needed to correct excessive engine oil consumption. Audi will also reimburse any affected owners of the 2009-2011 Audi A4, Audi A5 and the 2011 Audi Q5 for parts and labor on any previous repairs made for oil consumption problems." Since than I have no problem. I used fully synthetic oil from Europe "Elf" every 10,000 miles and i am not adding even one drop of oil between intervals. Love the car. I hope to keep it for next 100,000 miles. I changed Air filters, micro filter and Spark plugs two times. I am getting 30 or more mpg on Hwy and 27 in the city. Great car!!!! Next one i am getting is AUDI A4...

Great looking car - reliable? Not so much

I bought the car certified pre owned in 2011 with 13k miles on it. Before 20k the oil light kept coming on. Took it to the dealer who said it was "normal" to use a lot of oil cause it's a turbo. Took it back to the dealer when we had to start putting a quart or more of oil in every 1000 miles. They had to go thru a 3 step process to "prove" the car had an oil consumption problem which involved 4 visits to the shop over the course of the better part of a year. They finally had to basically rebuild the top half of the engine. This was around 60k miles. Fast forward to just over 100k miles and the timing chain tensioner failed. Car was of course just out of warranty and despite technical bulletins on the issue and a class action lawsuit the Audi dealership didn't cut us any slack on the repair quote. Over $13k to rebuild the engine or $20k for a new one. We took it to a 3rd party shop and managed to get the work done for a "mere" $7k. The ignition coils have failed 3 times in the last year. Random lights keep failing. Fuel pump went bad at 112k miles. Car is now just around 120k miles and has multiple EPC faults, idles rough and randomly dies at low speeds. It's been in the shop 3 times in the last 3 months, still not fixed. This is without a doubt the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I once drove a 1972 Ford Ltd in the 90s that was more reliable. I would never buy another Audi and the only reason I'm still (attempting) to drive this one is its paid off. Except for the repair bills, those keep coming!

I Love my Car.

I bought my A4 used at ~38k miles. Its a comfortable, fun car to drive. Great on gas, accelerates quite quickly, and with snow tires, it's a champ in the Michigan winters. However, its been a maintenance nightmare. Shortly after I bought it, the water pump started leaking. Thankfully, that was replaced under warranty. Next, the blower for the front defroster went out. Then it started burning oil badly. Turns out this is a common problem, and the fix was basically rebuilding the engine and replacing all of the pistons. Again, covered under warranty. But, while doing that work, they discovered that the timing chain was in need of replacing as well, which was not covered under warranty. And now, not more than 2 weeks after having that work done, the motor controlling the locks on the drivers door stopped working so I can't lock my car. This has been my first Audi, and it will also be my last.

Audi A4 Wagon, great car but is an oilaholic!

I love my 2010 Audi A4 Avant, its the third Audi I've owned but it slurps down oil at an average rate of a Qt every 670 miles. My previous cars which included two Audis (a 2004 S4 Avant and an 2007 AllRoad V8 never needed the hood opening between services. That is true for the four BMW's (three 7 series and a 535 xi wagon). Its just not right. My dealer Audi of Fairfield County tells me the consumption is within range but we all know that's a sham. Audi agreed to settle a lawsuit last year where they agreed to replace the crankcase pressure regulating valve. front crankshaft seal and front crankshaft bolt, they will also update the engine control module control software to match the new parts, all free of charge. I intend to take this up with them next week. I really love this car and hope this can be resolved or it will be time to move on. I will keep you posted

A review to all those having oil consumption problems: I bought my '10 a4 2.0t about a year ago off of a lease with about 16k on it. I was sick of bringing it to the dealer where I purchased it from for a top of because of the "oil min" light. IT IS NOT NORMAL. Switched my servicing to another Audi Dealer in the DC area, and they learned that my turbo and pistons were not made up to par with what my car required (something about a bad batch). Both my turbo and all oil parts were just replaced in hopes that it will solve the problem and will cause less oil to be burned without necessity. As long as you are persistant, they will fix the problem. Just don't bring it to a dbag dealer

I am so very disappointed in the performance of my 2010 Audi A4. June 13, 2013 with mileage at 111044 km I replaced both front wheel bearings and hubs at a cost of $1809.50. Then on June 24, 2013 (115240km) Pad Wear sensor had a broken wire. This required new front pads and rotors even though there was still available wear on the original pads. This problem cost $681.63. I have previously owned two Subaru Outbacks which I drove well over the 100,000 km mark. Neither required this type of extensive, expensive repair. Having to replace front wheel bearings at such low mileage doesn't seem reasonable to me. Is this something Audi A4s experience as the norm? Disappointed

I bought an Audi A4 in 2010. The car burns a quart of oil every 2,500 miles. I took it to the Danbury dealer, who told me the oil usage was normal because it was a highly efficient engine and the gas savings more than justified the hassle of replacing oil. I wished thes sales person would have told me that while I was shopping for a car. I would have bought another car.

If you think it's Ok paying $45K for an A4 with all the bells and whistles, but then need to add a quart of oil to engine every 3 months like you used to have to do with your first car when you were 16 yrs old, then by all means buy an Audi A4. I too am having oil consumption problems of about 1QT of oil every 2,000 miles with my 2010 Audi A4 with 21k Miles. Audi has done an consumption test and they report this is within normal for this engine. Really? I have had this problem from delivery of the vehicle. I am now pursuing a Lemon Law case against Audi and am trying to let everyone know of this problem . Do your research & you will see this is a problem. You have been forewarned.

I bought the A4 Prem Plus with Nav and Backup camera USED and certified from local Audi dealer. A 2012 would have been up around $45,000, I picked up the 2010 with 40k for $24,448. The car is absolutly amazing to drive considering I was driving an 04 Suburban daily. There is a huge learning curve with all the gadgets. I can live with that. Performance of the 2.0T is really nice. Took it on the highway around the corner and goes like hell, was doing 100 before I knew it. Then on another day took it to the casino about 75 miles one way, 36MPG at 60MPH on cruze. At these gas prices in CT that is a real pleasure. I was going to buy a new one year old Lacrosse(2011), but this was better.

I feel that the A4 slots nicely between the soft C-Class and business-like 3-Series and provides the driver with a nice balance between luxury and performance. I replaced my A3 with a 2.0T quattro Premium Plus with the sport package because I love this engine. Some people may turn their noses up at a four-banger but there's plenty of torque to merge onto the freeway and to pass, with decent mileage to boot. I've never been in a situation where I said, "Boy I wish I had a six." The quattro tracks very well through corners with just a slight, but predictable amount of understeer. It rains a fair amount in the winter where I live and having AWD is a nice safety feature.

Smooth Ride, great AWD

I traded in my 09 Jetta TDI. It was seriously one of my favorite cars, but now AWD had gotten me stuck more times than I'd like. Without an A4 TDI Quattro option, the 2.0T was the choice. The car is stunningly beautiful. Great lines, great lights, and hugely comfortable interior at least for me and my wife. Would have liked the S4 or at least the B&O sound, but the car is still very nice without them. Only gripes thus far are a vibrating steering column during reverse maneuvers, a lot of brake dust on the 18" wheels, and some funky controls. I love the lights and amenities that this car offers for a relatively low price compared to others in its class.

After 10,000 miles I find myself shuttling to the dealer every 5th weekend for the last 6 months due to the low oil indicator. They have done an consumption test and they report this is within normal for this engine. They have nothing else to offer. After spending 40K I expected more. After reading on the internet, I see that this has been a common problem. I suggest staying away. You've been forewarned.

I absolutely loved this car until there were oil problems at 2500 miles. At usage of 1500 miles (I bought it with 1000 on it), my car indicated low oil. As it had not been leaking, my car was burning it. Audi of America and the dealer said this was in spec, that turbo engines burned it. They offered to put a quart in every time. They could not answer to the long-term ramifications however and did not want to fix it. Had I known that my car required a quart of oil per 1500 miles I would not have purchased it because something seems wrong here. ONLY the 09-10 A4s do this. Turbo engines shouldn't burn that much. It affects my fuel efficiency and has taken away the joy of owning a new car.

Purchased the A4 Premium Plus Quattro with the 6spd manual. So Far its been a great car for the two months I've owned it. Has a nice wide stance and pretty roomy compared to earlier models. Love the LED daylight running lights. The LED tail lights are pretty slick also. Descent power for a 4 cylinder. Sound system not bad, controls take a while to get used to. Read on forums that the turbo burns oil, but at 1200mi I'm still good. Can't wait to see how it does on the snow/ice. Interior is very sharp, except for small useless drink holder up front and flimsy drink holder in back. Shouldn't have to use two hands to set a drink down. Minor flaws I guess for an otherwise great car.

My third Audi A4 and my favorite so far. The Turbo 2.0 FSI is strong and turbo lag is almost non-existent. Watch it on the highway as it creeps up to 80 MPH quickly and it doesn't feel like you are anywhere near that speed. The Premium Plus package has some really nice features and the MMI is very easy to use. Voice command feature with the NAV is awesome! No problems at all with the vehicle after 9000 miles. Amazing highway fuel economy!! 200 mile highway trip yielded 38 MPG at 70 MPH on a Quattro! Not hard to get high 20's in stop and go traffic.

I intended on buying a BMW 128i, but after taking a test drive and being a bit unimpressed (as well as being unimpressed with the dealer), I decided on the A4 and could not be happier. Other cars I considered were the Mini Cooper S and the Mercedes 300. My previous car was a 2007 Audi A3 which I definitely enjoyed. I thought the A4 would just be a larger version of the A3 and would offer a similar driving experience. I was definitely wrong! In just about every area the A4 is the better car (and this is coming from someone who liked the A3). It drives more surely with the Quattro, is *much* more comfortable, and handles brilliantly. Bottom line is I am glad I went with the A4.

I was given this car as a loaner car while my 06 A4 was being repaired. Even though my older A4 was broken, I still prefer it ten times over this new model. The CVT hesitation is absolutely unbearable! Do not buy the front wheel drive car with the CVT because you will regret it. The new A4 redesign is nice, but I actually think that the old A4 was prettier, and more engaging. This new one just feels similar to a Lexus, with less reliability. You feel disconnected from the road, and in a German car, that is not a good thing since that is the whole reason you buy one.

Did a lot of research and decided on the A4 over 328xi. Fuel economy of the 2.0TSFI, and the 258lbft of torque really put it over the top. Sport suspension w/ quattro is definitely the way to go, great handling but not too firm on rough roads. Steering is firm and relatively good feedback. Sport seats are great with bigger side bolsters. Interior is comfortable, quiet, and fits two car seats in the back. MMI took a bit to get used to, but easy to use once I got used to it. Same with the cruise control, digital display of set speed is a nice touch. Car has been great on several road trips w/ family of 4. Trunk is huge, 2 suitcases + portable crib w/ room to spare.

I've had this car for about a month and 600 miles. So far, it is awesome- handling, comfort, and power are amazing. I am excited and proud every time I get in it. It has made me re- think the numbers (i.e. horsepower) on paper. I don't understand how something with "only" 211hp can be so fast. I also test drove the BMW 328IX and it didn't feel anywhere near as fast as this car. I also love that I get such good gas mileage out of something with so much power. Safety is unmatched as well-5 stars in every category.

I purchased a 2010 A4, Premium Plus with FrontTrak after testing driving many cars including BMW 328i, Mercedes C300, Lexus I250, Infiniti G37 and Lincoln MKz. All cars I test drove were very good but the Audi A4 was the best in my opinion. Audi A4 was the perfect blend of a beautiful exterior, high quality sports sedan with peppy engine performance with exceptional handing and a large, well appointed interior cabin with leg room. The last part was very important to me. I am 6’2” tall so I did not want to feel cramped inside the car. The A4 has more room than a BMW 328/MB 300/Lexus I250. The A4 is also a very good looking car. I receive many complements on its exterior and interior looks.

I looked at the usual competitors; Lexus IS, Infiniti G35, BMW 3 series, and even a Nissan Maxima. I didn't like the MMI system when I test drove it, but after one day it was easy and now I love it. The car has a perfect balance of performance and luxury. There's enough space for my bigger friends, but has the design to make people look when I drive by. It's good for someone with a family or a bachelor.

I agonized over this decision like I never have before. It came down to the 328i and the A4. Both were within $3 per month after hard negotiating. You cannot beat the BMW for in the way it drives. It was amazing, BUT, there are so many other factors and it seemed like the A4 won every other one. Quattro vs XDrive, the interior was far superior in the Audi (cup holders in the BMW were insulting), the way the Bluetooth and Ipod integrate so seamlessly, the ride comfort, and the list truly goes on and on. Trunk space must be at least 2X in the Audi.

Initial observations is that this vehicle is built with the highest quality standards and materials. I understand some complaints about the steering wheel not returning to center when coming out of a turn. This simply takes some getting use to. MPG on the first tank of gas has been 32 MPG combined (in spite of the suggested 27 MPG Hwy). Lots of buttons and gadgets gives the feeling that you are truly sitting in the cockpit of an airplane. This was another complaint of Edmunds but I see this as a awesome feature. Performance is outstanding. Lots of heads are turning when I drive by. Build quality is a cut above my Infiniti FX35, but enjoy both vehicles. Handling is outstanding!

I thought I was going to get the new maxima but on a whim I stopped by audi. Also looked at the 328xi, TL, G37x and TSX. The BMW was great but over 100/month more. Loved the old TL but the new one felt way too large. Drove the TSX with the 4 cylinder too slow. Like the 6 but it was a $5k option, nearly 40k in total. As soon as I drove the A4 quatro I was hooked. The interior is so far superior to the other vehicles. The new maxima moves but it still feels really cheap. I liked th G but it was over $75/month more. The 6 speed manual is fantastic. Easy to use, short throws. Can't wait to try the quattro in winter.

Unreliable but good looking

If you want a candy for an eye, this is a car for you. If you want a reliable vehicle, DO NOT buy Audi with 2.0T engine! To most people, adding oil every 1000 miles is a hassle but Audi will tell you it's "normal". Google "A4 oil consumption problem" for more details on this issue.

Test drove everything out there. To be honest, not as good as BMW but much better value. Wife has a 335i. Different league of car. But Audi makes an excellent auto and love drive and fit and finish.

I drove the Mercedes c-300, BMW 328i, and the Lexus is250 prior to making my choice. The ride was the most comfortable in the Audi A-4. It also has great handling that matches in comparison to the other models. This turbo is makes it more zippy than the v6's in the comparison models. Drive this car before you choose one of the others.

So this is my first "luxury" car... 30 hours ago, I replaced my 2003 V6 Passat, that I dearly loved back in the day, with this new machine. I have to say, I didn't fully realize what I was missing. First, the quality of the interior is outstanding. Second, the handling is truly awesome. This car wants to hug the inside of a sharp corner and is a joy to accelerate all the way through! No body roll, no rear end jumping out, sheer bliss. Last, I love the technology, voice commands work well - lots of control over just about everything. B&O audio is outstanding. Didn't even consider a BMW - no Beemer Nation for me! OPTIONS: premium plus, 18" sports package, navigation, b&o audio

This is a FUN Car

First of all, before I purchased the A4, I looked at the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes c class, Infinity and even Cadillac CTS. I believe this is a typical sampling in this space. I picked the A4 for the roomy interior (at least for a small sedan), torque and interior design. It may not have the fastest top speed/acceleration in its class, believe me, with the torque, it's good enough. Love the interior and sound system. It's a fun car to drive.

I have owned four Audis and a number of other European cars and this one is the pinnacle so far. The build quality and choice of materials (inside and out)are segment leaders. The engine has unbelievable torque given its size and the ride is very compliant with minimal body movement. The steering is also sublime - it seems to know where you want the car to be pointed. This generation of A4 finally has real rear- seat space as well.

Pleasantly Surprised

Our Audi A4 has exceeded all our expectations. The ride quality is outstanding and the handling in the snow/heavy rains has been phenomenal. Although my wife is the primary driver, I love to drive the car on the weekends. The ride is tight and although the speed sensitive steering takes some getting used to, it was rock solid at highway speeds. This vehicle represents a great value compared to the competition.

Nice luxury vehicle for the price, but...

It could have been better. Lack of Auto dimming mirrors and memory seats on non Quatrro model is a joke. To get those two features, you need to go with a Quattro for an extra $2K (for automatic) and another $9K for Prestige option. Steering wheel can be little more stiffer. It is too light that I constantly have to make adjustments while driving. When I'm on freeway, I go zig-zag. My girlfriend actually got motion sick due to it. I have an Infiniti which has a real stiff steering wheel, so it'll probably take a while to get used to it. Audi's Multi Media Interface(MMI) is not very easy to use. It is located in the center console, so you need to look down while driving to change something.

Ok I've been sold on these cars for awhile. This is the 3rd one I've leased but its the 1st one I'm thinking about buying. The B&O stereo is excellent, the NAV is way improved, I like the rear camera, and the extra few inches of width/wheelbase, the seats with the sports package are also much better. Yes the suspension is stiff for a family ride but I'm not looking for a minivan with all wheel drive. I want something fun. This is by far the best Avant yet. These cars are a great mixture of fun, practicality, efficiency, safety and overall value.

I must admit I have not had this car very long to date, but the fit and finish of this car is excellent. The engine power is adequate from the 2.0T base, but with aftermarket performance upgrades that are safe and relatively inexpensive this car can really be made to move. I'm 6'2'' and interior fit is nice, sport seats are comfortable. Ride with the sport package is great and fuel economy thus far is about middle of the road. Highly recommend this car.

Just bought a new 2010 A4 with A/T. Found the steering too light and steering doe not return to neutral after a turn at normal speed. This requires more attention and correction from driver; making the car unpleasant if not unsafe to drive. Acceleration is acceptable, but fuel economy is bad. For 70% highway and 30% light local driving, I averaged only 21MPG. That's what I get for my 05 V6 Accord. Also find the controls unfriendly and complicated to use.

This car has exceeded all of my expectations. I purchased it in the fall of 2008. The gas mileage is unreal: occasionally I will get 37 mpg on the highway (10 mpg better than EPA projected). I am 6 foot 6 inches and it feels like this car is tailored for me. My father fits at 6 foot 11 inches and he it works for him as well. The LEDs are a must, as I have gotten an innumerable amount of glances and BMW 3 series' wanting to race because of them. The Audi A4 is just as capable if not more so than the other cars with which it competes. The grip is unreal. And while other cars are sliding around on the ice, it drives just like it would on asphalt. This car is a dream.

Have had my new A4 for about 5 months and it is the best car I've ever owned. I attended one of those Audi Driving experiences where they let you drive a Lexus, Mercedes and BMW, as well as the A4 and while the A4 wasn't superior in every category, it was the all around winner (atleast for me) Interior design is sleek and quality, exterior styling turns heads when I drive by. Fuel efficiency is off the charts, 24mpg city, and 33 highway, although I have taken a couple long highway trips and gotten 34-35mpg. I will admit, Audi's past quality issues made me think twice about buying. I hope reviews of this model were correct.

After a turn, the steering wheel does not return to "straight" properly (too slow) which makes driving a bit nerve racking and seemed unsafe.

I bought the car a month ago - and I enjoy it so much I take it for a ride on weekends just for pleasure. The car has a Start button (amazing) with a Advance key and a SideAssist(very useful). This is the car you love more and more with time, something you really need to know to appreciate. Everywhere you go - people would notice you. To drive the car on highways is just a pure pleasure, the car loves the speed. The only downside- it is expensive with options, but it's worth every penny.

Previously owned 2 Lexus GS models-the first was a rocketship, and the second a more desirable sedate sporting sedan. The Audi is a lesser car but a more fun and responsive car to drive and the 4 cylinder turbo is comparable to the 1st big engined Lexus I had-- much more road responsive. I have the MMI-Navigation package and it is so-so. Too many buttons, too many steps to do the basics. Favorite stations--push radio, push presets, turn the MMI dial to your stations-- what ever happened to the push button. Navigation--difficult, the Germans should look at touch screen. Two cup holders, but one is too small to fit anything. Seats need a lot of tweaking to get the right fit.

Premium Plus 2.0T Quattro 6 sp manual- Love at first drive-or maybe even before that! I switched from a Subaru Outback 2.5XT which I loved, but this takes all prizes hands down. My requirements- AWD, safe, solid & responsive handling. Shopped Sub, MB,BMW,Inf- Results: Best value. no contest. Incredible performance in sun, rain and snow, the manual shifts with control and grace. Exceptional braking and handling, seats have tireless support and comfort without confining. Comfortable for a family of four, but styled for a single executive. love the B&O upgrade- highly recommended! I wish everyone could own one...the world would be a happier, safer place! Drive it, you'll understand.

Due to inclimate weather in my area this year, it was perfect timing for owning this vehicle. The initial quality of this car is impressive. Clean, well thought out, and overall pleasing on the eyes. Everything you touch within the car feels great. I went with the manual option and since the car is so fun to drive, I don’t believe I’m getting the ratings suggested. I’m sure if I wasn’t to drive so aggressively, my MPG ratings would improve. The new A4 is larger, stronger, better looking, better MPG - than the BMW 3-series or C-class. I haven’t owned it long enough to speak in regards to its reliability. Regardless, I think I made the right choice...

Replaced my trusty '04 Acura TL, ended up with a Premium Plus A4. Wanted a sporty AWD sedan, and there aren't many--cross shopped the G37X Infiniti and Cadillac CTS, but the Audi is so solid, well-executed and efficient (both size and performance) that even with higher overall performance the others didn't compare. I've never been in a car that feels more connected to the road in the dry, and in the wet or snow the thing tracks like a billy goat--on snow packed roads I've had a hard time getting it to break loose, even intentionally. If the long-term reliability is there, this car is an absolute winner.

Lease was ending on a 2007 A4, and looked at the BMW 328, Mercedes 350C, and G37 as well as the 2010 A4; This car had the best balance of performance / luxury relative to price of anything I looked at (I have the Premium Plus and Sport Package). Don't be put off by the 4 cyl turbo - driven in "S" mode the car has as much, if not more, acceleration as the others and is a blast to drive. I'm looking forward to three great years with this one!

I have only had the 2010 Audi A4 Avant for a month, but it has absolutely bedazzled me. In replacing my trusty Honda Civic, I had the following criteria: (1) AWD to get through Wisconsin winters; (2) roomy enough to accommodate a family of four, but no SUV's or minivans; (3) an attractive and fun-to-drive car. The A4 Avant easily fits the bill. I can't wait to get into the car each morning - but because my commute is only 10 minutes each way, I take the car for a spin each weekend, cruising over the beautiful rolling hills of Wisconsin. My only gripe is with fuel economy. I drive mostly in the city, and I have not been able to achieve 21 mpg unless I mix in some highway driving.

I've owned this car for a few weeks now and am pleasantly surprised. I sold a '07 Lexus IS250 to get my new A4 and was hesitant about the price upgrade to the premium plus package, but it has been well worth the money. The 2010 Audi A4 is hands down the best car I've ever owned. The ride is exceptionally smooth and the pick-up is outstanding. I get constant compliments on my A4 (mostly from the LED running lights) and I continually catch other drivers staring as I drive by. Although it feels much bigger than previous A4 models, the car handles with ease, gets great gas mileage, and is fun to drive. I shopped MB, BMW, and Infiniti and this was definitely the right choice.

It was never my original intention to own an Audi and I signed on the dotted line with some trepidation. 4 months and 4000 miles later, I am sold! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it's the A4 Avant's looks that got me hooked in the first place. Our recent 2500 mile round trip down the I5 to California confirmed the comfort of the seats, the agility of the car, it's handling and the surprising acceleration. It's still hard to believe that a 4 cylinder 2.0 liter engine lies under the hood. The Ipod audio interface is the best I have come across and the upgraded Bang and Olufsen system was a blast on such a long trip. The fuel economy was surprising good for an all wheel drive.
