I have owned 3 A4 1.8t quattros (1997) was my first car. I have honestly never had a MAJOR issue with either of my 3 cars, worst thing i had happen was my suspension spring broke while i was driving (in the 1997). I donno maybe i got lucky and everyone got stuck with the bad batch hahaha but any way. Car honestly looks nice from outside and in, drives and handles like a champ, not as fast but if u want a fast car get ones wit bigger engines. there are tho some down falls to em such as the [non-permissible content removed] plastic everyone keeps bringing up, window regulators going out. fortunately i know how to work on em so i never take em to service them. but for those of you who are getting them used and are not prepared to service them on time...dont get it ull just waste your money. if you are and plan to maintain them and not drive like a nascar driver, they will last an would be worth it. by far best car i ever drove

AUDI has not yet learned to build reliable cars !

Plastic parts used throughout the engine compartment get old, brittle, fall apart under normal engine heat. Need to take many things apart under the engine compartment to service. Plastic fuel lines kink easily and cause fuel pump failure. Exhaust system falls apart after 6 years. Glove compartment easily breaks off. New parts cost more than the car itself. Audi Stealership (TOWNE AUDI of Englewood NJ) out to rape people overcharging $140/hr. like it was a new car. Stay away from used AUDI's and buy a used Lexus, Infinity or Accura if you want a reliable used car. Sold the car as of March 2016 and bought a wonderful SUBARU FORESTER.

I love the thought of this car, it gets good gas mileage, it's comfortable and looks nice with the top down and it's great at high speeds. What I don't like... The maintenance! It's very expensive, in just two months I had an oil leak, coolent leak, transmission speed sensor failure, a whole new ac, the gear shifter peace spilt apart, the car starts funny, etc. This car also isn't fast enough for me. I should have got the V6 Quattro but that's probably just me. I want to keep the car but on the other hand I could lease a brand new one for the same price as the maintenance on this one.

I've owned this car for about 3 years and have driven it personally for about a year so far(my mother was driving it before me) the interior is great looking but the material that covers the buttons is crap and supper cheap. The car handles very nicely and sounds great for a bone stock car. In terms of reliability, ive had only little things break like the glove box hinges and window regulator but WOW was it expensive-400$ for a window regulator. that includes the labor aswell. The sound system is great 10 spkrs all around and it comes with a sub built in if you get it with Bose. I've added 19in rs4 rims and man o man does it look nice. performance wise is a great cruiser but not that fast, like 0-60 7-8 ish seconds. a full tank costs about 60 and you'll be looking at 250-320 miles range. The only thing I hate about this car is the steering wheel, I cant really find a comfortable way of holding it since the stereo controls or in the sides but other than that great and car and I would consider buying another one. newer model of course.

Love and hate, go hand in hand for this car.

You really have to be passionate about owning this car. Like, to a point where fixing it as almost your priority. There is something constantly wrong with this car. Sunroof leak... ruins the headliner... also to a point where water will ruin the amp.... suspension issues with the control arm bushings not lasting, J-plug cracking and leaking coolant... and putting plastic just where it doesn't belong, window electronics crap out too. It's almost not worth the premium price brand new if you think about it. There is always something wrong with this car. It was probably best to lease this car when it was brand new... don't get this car used... there is a reason why you don't see so many of these cars on the road. And as far and repairing this car... parts are expensive and what crawl space do you have to work with. You have to remove so many excess things just to get to what you need. I loved this car, but it was such a hassle.

I love it, but I hate it too.

This car is fantastic... When it works. For all the two years I've had it, I don't think it has worked properly for more than two months of that time. There's always some problem which is hard to diagnose, the problem which then ends up being expensive. This is not to say that it isn't a great car, it certainly is. The Quattro AWD is spectacular in the snow and sticks to the road in summer as well. Performance needs improvement though --- There's very little low-end torque, and there just needs to be more horsepower to propel this 3,500 pound car. Overall I'd say don't get this car over 100,000 miles, it'll just frustrate

Love it!

Owned my A4 1.8T for a year now, bought it used. I love it, the cost of service is a bit higher but the car seems to not need service as often, but time will tell. The interior is beautiful and comfy, but there is a serious lack of cup holders...Performance is amazing, for a 4 cylinder car it has some serious power with the turbo, and the car corners like a dream. Handles very good in winter conditions with the Quattro

The good points: The ride and handling are great, the convertible top design is a delight. The bad: Everything is going to cost you (more). Within 50 miles of driving I had a check engine light. The interior ergonomics are, in my opinion, dreadful, with the single cheap plastic cupholder as a start, the plastic click click switches, and more plastic parts that break (sun visor clip, center armrest for me). The extremely annoying warnings. There's the two hour 'stop driving and take a break' warning. the tone when you open the drivers door with the turn signal on. It treats the driver like a moron. Never again!

I bought my '04 A4 1.8T FWD a little under a year ago with 87,xxx miles on it, haven't had a single problem with it beyond regular maintenance. Keeping up on regular maintenance is important to preserve the life of the car (more so than for non-European cars). Fortunately, any known problems (like the timing belt) had been worked out by the previous owner. Very good value, rock solid reliability, comfortable and very fun to drive. If you want speed, get the 3.0 V6 or the S4. As it is though, the 1.8T CVT goes from 0-60 in 7.8 seconds in Sport, or 8.5 seconds in Drive. Not to bad for a small engine, getting 33 mpg on the highway. Handles like a dream. Very nice interior. Audio system rocks.

I have now owned my 2004 audi a4 3.0L with ultrasport package for a bit over 4 years. This car is a blast to drive, and living in Minnesota, it is the best vehicle I have ever driven in the snow. Having said that I have been most definitely disappointed with the reliability. It seems every 4-6 months I have a major repair, not including the little things that I take care of myself. New tires every 1-2 years (15,000 miles/yr)Timing belt at 75,000, new radiator fan, new clutch and flywheel. I have spent $4000 in repairs on it this year alone. So beware and know that it may be cheaper than some, has great style, and is a lot of fun, but you may be better off with something more durable.

I have a previously owned a4, with the ultra sport package. This car has every possible added feature. When my car was working, it was a pleasure to drive. The performance alone, is outstanding. You could drive at 100mph and it felt like you were going 50mph. The AWD was fantastic for snow and rain, I had no problems with traction. I do know that they are EXTREMELY expensive to maintain and own. Any time my check engine light would come on, which was every month, it would cost no less than 1000$ to have it turned off. One problem ALWAYS led to another and it was so frustrating and discouraging when my car had to be brought in for repairs. Overall, I am saddened to retire this car bc of costs

Fun to drive, but a steep investment in repairs.

I've had an opportunity to drive all kinds of cars, from BMWs to Volvos, to high end japanese vehicles and NOTHING has handled and performed like my Audi. This car feels like you are going 60 miles an hour at 100. You can barely feel the body roll as you effortlessly carve through corners at high speeds, and no automaker has a better interior. On the downside, prepare to set aside about 3000$ a year for repair and maintenance! Even oil changes will run you 100$, and when your fuel pump dies (and it probably will!) You can expect to spend 1000$ at the dealer if it's out of warranty. This is a driving enthusiasts car that's also a comfortable commuter. I love my Audi, expensive or not!

Bought the A4 convertible new. I only used it as a second car and have driven 32,000 miles now. When it still was under warranty a warning light come on and I was told it is nothing serious and AUDI service made it go away. The light came on and off several times in the last year. Recently the car was hesitating when accelerating. AUDI now quoted $2,200 for repair of the transmission control box. When it was in repair they told me they have found problems with the transmission and the repair would be $7,000!! Can anyone imagine that on a car for $50,000 with only 32,000 miles.

This was by far my favorite Audi. An 04 Ultrasport. Fantastic handling. Good thing I had an extended warranty - the car broke a lot - always something - the only way I would consider driving another Audi product at this time would be if I could have this car back - after repairing it month after month I sold it to buy a new Audi. I traded that within a month of buying it.

Original owner of this 3.0 A4 since new. Right off the lot, negotiated 5% down. Now 7 yrs experience with it with 81K kms traveled. Quality, stability, stance, control, performance are all above great with decent gas mileage of 7.9l/100km highway 9-10l/100km city with quattro using synthetic. Audi maintenance covers everything during 3 yr warr and dealer's have provided exceptional service. They replaced all my brake disc's, pads and spark plugs all under warranty. Burnt bulbs, lighter socket, wiper lever seized from salt also replaced /w warr. Coils replaced under recall, but never problems just glithces with electronic in window controls, sunroof, and resets of A/C.

Pros: When running properly, the performance of this car is impressive. It was built for the Autobahn and is fun to drive fast, but we're not in Germany. Cons: I've had many mechanical and computer issues. Driver side electric window mechanism replaced, catalytic converter replaced, speakers go in and out on the front driver side, ignition coils replaced, uses a lot of oil, check engine light on more often than not. At least a $1000 everytime I have to take it to the shop. The interior design isn't practical. The second cup holder is in the middle console but it's very cumbersome to access. I'm shopping for a new car and it won't be an Audi.

It's great when it everything is in running order. I bought the car new and have since run it to 188k miles. At 115k, the engine died on me. Something came loose that ruined one of the cylinders. Fortunately, I have a friend who's a mechanic that was able to procure me a used engine with 60k on it. After that, the bushings had to be replaced and then the fuel pump. I love my car and still have it, but I don't think I'll buy Audi again. Too much money for maintenance and gas.

A week after I bought the car the fuel pump went. Center arm rest broke and so did the glove box. Closed the door one day and the side air bags went off 6000 in repairs for the side airbags but was covered by Audi USA. Thermostat broke twice. The speakers cut in and out. Rear Windows won't work and front ones work when they feel like it. Burns a quart of oil every 1000 miles Audi says this is normal. Had to replace the clutch. And transmission rebuild. Coils always fail leading to misfiring witch overheated my engine blowing the head gasket and cracking the head. There is lots more I'm forgetting I could have bought this car ten times over.

Nice reliable car until the CVT transmission went out at only 71,000 miles. $6,000 repair from the dealer. $5,000 to rebuild it. Great mileage. Good ride and handles well. Looks sharp. Should have bought extended warranty. Won't be buying another Audi.

Older couples' car with all documentation. Rides, looks and feels excellent. Great Bose stereo. Ultra sport package is awesome! Easy to forget this is a wagon. I traded in a 2008 Suzuki SX4 4 cyl AWD hatchback for this car. I wanted more power and luxury. Did some research and, an Avant 3.0 was the best bet. I really like the B6 (2002-05) generation of this car, Audi styling at its' epitome. Current generations (B7 & B8 late 2005-08, 2009-) A4s' styling is way out there, not my taste at all.

I had to take my car into the shop 5 times so far this year. First time I had to replace all ignition coils with recall (engine light flashing and car vibrating). 2nd time replaced coil pack for V6 engine light went on. 3rd time they checked engine and had the light off for 2 weeks. Light came on again said it was spark plugs. Didn't replace spark plugs because they charge too much. 5th time came in and said i had to replace spark plugs and fuel injector. charged 195 dollars for labor. They rip people off. Replaced parts with labor was 370 dollars. My car's check engine light is on again now. Least reliable vehicle ever.

I bought this car with approximately 40k miles on it after it had come off a lease. It's fully loaded with every available feature for that model year and has a full leather interior. Black paint, black leather. It's a sweet looking car and it drives really well. Overall I'm quite happy with the car and if I had to make the decision again I would buy the same car. I average about 28 MPG - mostly highway driving. The Ultra Sport package offers most of the S4 styling with much better fuel economy. Over the years, I've had the coil packs and the cat converters replaced under warranty, I've had to replace the win regulators on both front windows. I still love this car though.

CVT transmission had to be replaced at 50k miles, but had the symptoms at an earlier 30k miles (there's an existing TSB for this issue). Working with Audi of America to see what our options are. Always had the vehicle serviced at an Audi dealer at the prescribed maintenance intervals. Day after the trans install, the check engine light was on, which was found to be a defect part on the 'new' transmission. Love the car, but can't afford the maintenance. I thought German cars were built to last. A lot of other little things are broken, not working, or just acting up in the car. I think it's time to see what BMW has to offer...

I bought this car used with 38k miles now it has 63k miles and the fuel pump along with airbag sensor and window motor all went bad. luckily i bought the extended warranty which covered all expenses with a minor 50 dollar deductible. Very expensive car to keep up with i wouldn't recommend it if you're on a tight budget. One RSA good year tire $200 oil change $75. Car makes a grinding initially of every first start. The trans doesn't feel very strong and i baby it so much i don't even tip 2500 RPM. A light buld change is $100+ I'm going Toyota or Honda next.

3rd week of ownership transmission shot. CVT with Rare Code GZE looked all over country finally found used. New $6000 Used $2500. Not how I wanted to start with Audi. Will sell once fixed. Dealer not helpful at all. Left me to find trans. so they wouldn't have to stand behind it. THANKS. Won't by Audi again.

I've now had Audis (3 of them) for 14 years. Historically problems, but this gorgeous green A4 3.0L 2004 cab has been great! Oh yeah, a minor electrical things telling me my satellite radio isn't working (although it does just fine!), but that's nothing. The car is so great to drive. Lacking a little on comfort for long trips, but that's no surprise. I have only 67K miles (about 5 years) and have no thoughts of looking for anything else. Can't come up with anything I'd enjoy driving more than this. And the wind screen is great, allowing me to put top down (windows and heater up) when sunny and 45 when dressed appropriately. I love this car!!!

We purchased this 10 months ego and after 10 months of pain and problems it has stranded us 180 miles from home at 11pm. We are replacing it with a Lexus RX300. This has needed new catalytic converters, coils,O2 sensors, control arms, wiper mechanism, trunk actuator. Sunroof is stuck, brake caliper is not working right and wears pads too fast on 1 side, tranny shifter gets stuck sometimes, 1 wheel is bent, power steering pump squeaks, and now the fuel pump gave up the ghost. All between 75k and 98k. First month we owned it, it spent 3 weeks in shops and 1 week on the road. Most parts are VW. I can not believe Audi sells this VW at Audi price. Don't be a fool and buy one.

I have the 3.0 A4 with UltraSport package. The rims and trim associated with this package turn this car into a head turner. My previous vehicle was a 1991 MR2 Turbo. Although it might be the slowest car in it's class, I love it. The biggest difference I experienced (compared to Japanese brands) is the attention to detail. Things such as storage under the seating, lights under each door to illuminate where you are going to step, and a cool hidden trunk release, just to name a few. It feels super solid on the road, especially in rain. I chose the 3.0 over the 1.8T because I don't want to deal with all the problems associated with high-mileage turbos.

I got lucky

As the original owner, now with 75,000 miles, I have only a few minor complaints about this, my favorite car of all time. Better handling, more comfortable and a lot more fun to drive than my wife's Lexus IS 250. The styling and performance are terrific. More power and better reliability than year models. One or the other of the tail lights have to be replaced every 6-12 months: I've now bought the tools and now do it myself. The cup holder is a bit flimsy, and the arm rest storage cover has an easily breakable hinge. Back seat leg room is very cramped for adults (a non issue for us 2 empty nesters). I just recently discovered the 12 volt socket in the trunk.

Car is gorgeous. Dolphin grey ext & Black leather int. Looks like the S4, but with the economy of the 1.8T. It kills me that Audi makes such beautiful cars but can't make them reliable enough to compete with Japanese cars. In a year's time, I've replaced both front window regulators, the clutch, the center armrest, steering control arm, the stereo head unit and now scheduled items are coming up (timing, struts, brakes). This car only has 65k miles... Japanese typically don't fall apart until twice that. Audi does make a great car to lease. Only lease... which is unfortunate as most first time Audi buyers probably buy pre-owned and get turned off by the time they make enough to buy new.

I purchased this car w/ 44K and now have 79K on it. You can't beat the tasteful, subtle but sporty styling and the interior design and quality is impeccable. Apart from the lack of power (170hp in a 3400lb car just can't compare to its rivals in terms of acceleration), but the quattro all-wheel-drive system all but makes up for it in the twisties and it moves like a much lighter, more balanced car. Like almost all 1.8T owners I've had to replace my coil packs (I opted to upgrade to aftermarket Hitachi plugs instead of the OEM versions). A new clutch was also required at 75K, but that may have been due to the previous owner's driving style. I love my car and will drive it until it's dead.

Purchased vehicle used with 20k mileage. Ultrasport 1.8T came with APR stage-1 upgrade. Problems with Air bag module. Dealer fixed under warr. Ignition coils went bad cost 500.00 Fuel pump bad along with some type of sensor that regulates the fuel to the engine?? Caused car to dump too much fuel and flood engine. Cost 850.00. Defective coolant seal (Anti Freeze was leaking in the rear of engine) about 1100.00. And of course the famous Timing belt that bent the valves at 85K and defective passenger side window module cost 2300.00 (And that's with my own valve head I received free from a friend). Now the Bank 1 O2 sensor is bad and it's leaking oil like crazy. Dealer said defective oil cap??

I bought this car w/50k miles on it and it has 89k now. I love driving this car. I love the looks & the interior is awesome. Gas mileage is grt as I avg 26 mpg & get at least 32 on hwy. The hate on this car is reliability issues. I have had coolant leaks, oil leaks, & now the trans is leaving puddles on my garage flr. I have replaced both frt wdw regulators, the fuel pump, 3 of the 4 ign coils on the engine. I have had issues with the air bags & the engine light is on a lot. When it rains the car leaks water in at the A pillar & no one seems to know why. It's in the shop more than my garage. I'm scared what it will cost after 100k. I love it, but it's going to have to go. Go back to BMW or Japanese.

Owned since new. No major engine problems ever with this car. Would recommend good aftermarket warranty after 50K miles. Had to replace both front window regulators and 2 coil packs. I have 93,000 miles on the car and I don't baby it. 4cyl turbo w/6speed manual is a gas saver but lacks in power. Opted for APR Stage 1 program upgrade $499 value worth every penny. Car now has about 230hp and 275ft lb of torque and is much more fun to drive. Worst thing about the car is the useless cup holders. Best looking A4 ever IMO. Careful choosing tires for this car, very susceptible to road noise once tires begin to wear. Pirelli P Zero Rosso were the best. Yokohama's handle great but make a lot of noise.

OK. Had this car 5 years now and wanted to add some perspective to all these reviews. First, car is great and works very well. No major issues while under warranty. A few little things here and there -- warm up when cold is rough and car rattles a bit, cup holder finally bit the dust in dash and will never come out again. (Partly its own fault and partly my anger out of its complete uselessness). Low water light for window washer comes on for no reason. Out of warranty had to have some vacuum hose work done for $700. Overall the car is still great but with all the little nits and nags you would expect with any car after 5 years and 70k miles. Roof great and no leaks!

This is an amazing car to drive. It handles like a dream on both dry roads and ice packed roads. The interior is beautiful and very functional. You will definitely get some head turns with this car. I would, however, anyone who is considering buying this car to reconsider. The car is extremely expensive to fix and seems to have more problems than the average car. I have taken amazing car of the car but unfortunately it has not returned the favor. In the past 6 months I have put approximately $4500 into the car. I don't know how much longer I can keep it up. I would highly recommend looking at a Toyota convertible.

Excellent car overall. The original tires Pirrelli 4 season are problems. Had side wall bubbles on all 4. Car has been to the garage only for maintenance and to replace the headlight washer cover which fell off twice. 85,000 miles so far. Also problem with wheels, they tend to hit the curbs when parallel parking due to the curve of the wheel they stick out from the tire. They get scrapped easily. Everything else is awesome, I'd buy another.

In the last year I have had to replace the ignition coil, fuel pump, and I'm getting ready to take it in for a trans module that costs $2000. And I just found out my top leaks and will need to be replaced at $2500. This is a car you need to get rid of at 40 or 50k miles. Audi I hope you see this review.

The A4 quattro is great however the cost to repair and keep the car is pretty expensive. The windshield wiper arms and control were replaced for 500+ dollars, 4000 dollars worth of repair after rear end collision, torque converter failure at 67000 miles, dead battery after 4 years (134 dollars non Audi battery) I liked the car in the beginning but it got costly to keep especially with premium gas at 4.30+/gal. Also the car was never the same after the accident.

I had concerns since most reviews I found mention an average of about 21-25mpg. I have found that reasonable driving habits have given me a combined average of 32.1mpg on regular gas over the last 20,000 miles! Of course if you bought this car to really drive it you won't do so well, but I was so impressed with the design, quality and ride that I got it to enjoy those features (I drive about 30,000 miles per year and don't race, or even speed much). A buddy of mine who does have a lead foot gets about 21mpg on premium in his 2001 A4 2wd.

I have found my A4 to be an outstanding car. I have been very satisfied with the comfort, reliability, styling and road handling capabilities of the 3 liter FWD. I have to admit the 1st gear off the line in auto sometimes hesitates but a simple fix if you need the get into traffic acceleration is to switch to select manual. There is negligable drop in RPM when in auto at gear changes - if you can feel it-pure acceleration. Fuel ecomony is fine - if you don't dog it and cruise sensibly - below 65 - I have gotten 30 mpg on the highway - 20 in town. The non turbo 3 liter is a great engine.

Almost problem free since then, except a few minor issues: non-working headlight cleaners, burnt lights, filter problems. It just came out of warranty (>4 years) and the A/C compressor died, dealer wants to charge $2000 to replace it. I'm thinking of trading it since repair costs for this car are exorbitant.

I purchased my A4 back in January of this year after doing extensive research on everything from Acura, Lexus, BMW & Volvo. What truly sets this car apart is the fact it is AWD with luxury and ride comfort that I did not find in any of the above listed models. The interior styling makes the BMW 3-Series look cheap. I have never found so many compartments for storage in a vehicle like this either. The handling is amazing I drive in the catskill mountain range in southern NY and can't tell you how amazing this car handles. I've driven it through ice & snow even at 65mph this car feels like it's riding on rails. Go for a 6-speed manual to maintain a sports sedan feel. Amazing car!

Overall, my 4-year experience with the A4 has been a good one. I concur with the turbo lag mentioned in other reviews on standing starts. However, at road speeds the turbo is much more responsive. I have had no mechanical issues with this vehicle that required service. The sports suspension and quattro make this car a pleasure to drive in any weather conditions. Traction in heavy snow has been fabulous. I've heard a lot of negative stories about the Pirelli tires the 2004 model came with (defects, noise, low tread life), but I have 38,000 miles on mine, and have had no issues.

I bought my A4 Ultrasport used with about 36000 miles, and since June I've added another 2500. I drive all over the the Southeast and I love it, good gas mileage balanced with good performance. I do agree though it lacks in low end torque, nothing a light ecu upgrade can't solve. I want to design cars, so I'm pretty critical when it comes to automobiles. After driving a E320 for a while, I joined the Audi revolution. In my search, I drove 3 series models, IS 300, C320/230 K, and the T5 Volvo S40. In the end I found the Audi was the best. Cheaper upkeep than the other Germans, and better build quality than Volvo and Lexus. Join The AUDI revolution!

In less than 3 years and 26000 miles, we have spent $2600 on repairs to our Audi, $1000 for a door that distorted, $1600 for a clutch that failed. We also have a broken catch on a glove compartment unfixed so far. Despite the car having a 50,000 mile 4-year warranty, the dealership has steadfastly refused to fix anything under warranty. From what we can gather, this policy seems to be driven by Audi of America. We will NEVER buy an Audi again.

My wife wanted this car more than I did. Not only did she love the design, her bad back loved the seats. I wanted a smaller, less expensive car, something like an Acura TSX or Mazda3, By special ordering a low optioned FWD version, we kept the cost down. It has provided us with 38000 miles of trouble free, comfortable, low operating costs driving. I am sure that the other choices would not have been as comfortable for long trips nor gotten as a better MPG. I am more than glad we got the A4!

Fantastic Vehicle

Turbo lag, turbo lag, turbo lag The problems I have had with this car start with the fuel pump humming noise. The dealer replaced it twice. As of now no more noise. AC turns off when it feels like it. I live in florida & it get hot here so AC is a must but the A4 AC seems to have a mind of its own. I had a 1996 A4 with the same problem. Now to my biggest complaint. The 1.8t's turbo lag. Say you are in the middle of the intersection waiting for an opening. In the Audi don't even think about creeping in. You better have a big opening by the time you step on the gas and the car reacts its too late.

I'd buy it again

Since I purchased my convertible in a matter of the first year within 7 months I had the transmission replaced 3 times. Recently the oil pump malfuctioned and the engine blew. 2 days later the radiator hose went. 3 weeks later the engine lost power. This car has been in the shop at least 25-30 times in the past 3 years for various things. I finally hired and attorney and used the lemon law which was successful monetarialy but had to keep the car the rest of the lease which is up in 2 months!!! Thank god!! I love the looks of the car but mine was NOT worth the trouble. I have a convertible and cannot use it most of the time as it is always in the shop. Good LK

My Audi has serious electrical problems (every headlight, tail light, turn signal and now the regulator which controls my power window - $350 to replace - has been replaced at least once) and Audi USA and the dealer don't seem to care. I get "it happens to every car" - not any that I owned in the past (Japanese). They're great looking cars and fun to drive, but need too much up-keep for the price. Think of something else before purchasing unless you don't mind dishing out hundreds of $$$ every couple months on things that should never go wrong let alone within the first couple months of owning a brand new, showroom floor car.

I wanted a fast fun car for a reasonable price and got it. Had serious issues with the convertible top not working and it took SIX WEEKS during the Indian Summer for the dealer to fix it (more of an issue of the dealer's inability to fix a problem properly). Other than that issue, everything else has been great with the car. I have the sports package which I'd forget if I did it all over again (too many potholes and bumpy roads in the metropolitan area). At the end of the day, I do have to say that I still love this car.

I was looking at the "new VW Jetta" at the time, and to get all the things that I wanted cost more that the Audi. Common sense told me to get the Audi instead. I had my car for 7 months with no problems. I was at a stop light when it happened. The light turned green and I stepped on the gas, and the car would not move. The check engine light was one, the car was running, but it wouldn't move. After countless trips to the dealer and being told that the car was fixed (and it wasn't) I had to get rid of it. I hated doing it too. I loved the design of the car, the bose xm radio, tiptronic, and the pure fun to drive feeling. When the car works it's great, but when it didn't...

Living in the northeast, I was hesitant to spend this much $ on a convertible, but have to say I love it. The performance, handling and comfort of the car is amazing. Can't imagine giving up any of the features. The 3.0 is a little sluggish off the line, but makes up for it quickly with a lot of power. It's so much fun to drive, looks great and is really comfortable.

This is the first car I have really enjoyed driving. It is responsive, amazing when the turbo kicks in, and I get positive comments from people on the street all the time which has never happened to me before. However, I have had to have the transmission replaced at 12000 miles, it just didn't go into gear one day and had to be towed. The dealer was great about replacing it but it did take 4 weeks until I got the car back.

The A4 is not only great looking and fuel efficient, but it is FUN to drive. The 170 hp and almost 170 lb feet of torque pack more than enough power. I get compliments on my car quite frequently.

Longtime lover of the Audi series. Friends all swore by A4's. I finally leased one in 2004. At first I was pleased, coming off of many high end japanese vehicle leases, but I have now been in the shop with a lot of little issues. Started out with driver's power window not closing. Then water leaks in dashboard window which led to freezing ice in winter on the INSIDE. (blamed on water drains clogged?!) Window broken again. Now a/c doesn't work and transmission not shifting properly on hills. Anyone else have these issues or just me? I love my car and I'm saddened by all the time it spends in the shop.

We liked many things about the A4, but the seat comfort that sealed the deal. Had to order an unloaded model to keep cost under $30K. I worried about reliability issues, but with 18K miles the only issue has been an improperly installed headrest. We go 5 hours non stop & our 55 year old bodies have nary a complaint. Power is adequate at under 2,500 rpms, more than adequate over 2,500 - passes with ease. Biggest surprise is gas mileage (relatively conservative driving habits). 33-36 mpg on highway & 26-28 in urban driving. Great balance between ride & cornering, feels heavy & a bit mushy in a fast, tight turns, but great & no complaints for daily driving. CVT very smooth & slick.

I have owned several cars including my most recent, a 2002 BMW 325i. Overall, I would rate this A4 as the best car I have owned. The exterior and especially the interior styling cannot be beat in this price range. I have the sports package with the interior aluminum trim and love it - very sporty and classy at the same time. Also, I love the lower profile, sleek look with the sports package. The ride suffers a bit with it as to be expected and there is not much noticeable improvement in handling IMHO, but still worth it for the look.

I bought my A4 in May 03. It was one problem after another. The trunk compartment for holding the top broke and needed to be replaced. The final straw was when the transmission needed to be replaced with only 9k on the car! It had been making some strange creaking noises but the dealer kept insisting it was just loose bolts they needed to tighten. After several visits to the shop, they finally determined that the transmission was defective. In 9 months of owning the car, it was probably in the shop for a total of 8 weeks. I would never buy another Audi. Very poor quality.

The Audi A4 is the most underestimated car on the market. I have always been drawn to its understated elegance, but in the past 3 years, Audi has really stepped up and started grabbing the attention of people who want luxury cars, but don't want to clone every other "wannabe" in that market. I have the A4 1.8T Quattro, Ultra Sport edition of the car. I have every possible option avaliable. It is the best car I have ever driven to be honest and I know I will be an Audi owner for life!

I had the benefit of reading a bunch of reviews before buying my 2004 Audi A4 Avant, so I figured that I'd add my two cents to the mix. The Audi wasn't initially on my radar screen. I was looking to spend $20,000 on a used wagon that could handle snow (which my BMW 528E could not). I was taken by the Passat Wagon, drove it, then almost sprung for a new one, but I got spooked by the aggressive discounting by local dealers, which usually means bad resale value in a few years. Then I looked closely at the Saab 9-5, BMW 3-Series, and Audi A4 wagons. Considering handling, comfort, volume, price, re-sale, the Audi blew me away. Now ten months later, I can further confirm that this is a great car.

Traded in my 2001 Audi A4 quattro 5 speed for a 2004 A4 1.8T quattro 6 speed. I didn't opt for the sport package that was on my 2001 model. This made for a softer smoother ride which is nice since most driving is done sensibly and not pushing the limits (though that is amazingly fun in this car too). The 6 speed transmission is a must, it keeps the RPM's down at highway speeds. I never had any troubles with my 2001 model and have not experienced any so far with my 2004. It is fun to drive, a better value than BMW, and sportier then Mercedez-Benz. This is the perfect car!

This past December while lowering my soft top, I heard a rip. After raising the top, a small tear was noted. With Audi's inclusive warranty, I called Crown Eurocar (my dealer) and was given an appointment for 2 weeks. When the car went in to Crown the service department rep said, "yea it is ripped and would need to be replaced (first day lost;they had refused to just look at it without appt.). Returned 2 weeks later for repair.Loaner given and told it should take a day to repair. Next day the only tech who could repair it was out. Finally it was determined that a defect was responsible, the car had slipped quality control and the entire top had to be replaced (after ok from Audi)

I've driven a dolphin grey quatro A4 for about 7 months which now has 14,000 miles. The only car I measured it up to before purchase was a BMW 325. All in all I am very satisfied about my purchase however the driver side window sometimes rolls back down on its own when I push it to roll up. Other than that no problems worth noting.

I find the 1.8t A4 quattro to be a very comfortable and fun car to drive. While not a complete dog, the 1.8 liter four is a little underpowered for this car's weight. The six-speed shifts nicely and helps keep things more lively, but there is no substitute for more grunt. The interior finish is impeccable, the controls work well, and the quattro system helps in the corners. I am concerned about the long- term reliability. My car has just over 1000 miles and is rattling in the back ... I hope it will not be problematic.

This is my second A4 (3.0 black ext, black int, with ultra sport package and all options except nav). The car is superb in almost every way - e.g. elegant exterior lines; understated, luxuriously appointed cabin; superior storage; and authoritative passing power. The only realy fault of the car is its not entirely adequate 220hp 3.0 engine. While not anemic, this power plant simply does not have enough muscle to move the A4's considerable weight with any alacrity, especially at starts and lower city speeds (0-45 mph) where it cooperates but not very willingly and with way too much drama. Considering the S4 is USD 12k plus away, the A4 needs more uumph.

Gearshifts are flawless, turbo gives me power when I need a boost, road grip and driver response are excellent, craftmanship is first rate, aesthetically pleasing (inside and out), standard sound system is better than BMW's harmon kardon premium, excellent warranty (1st pair of brake pads, oil changes, servicing are all free), and its turning radius helps me corner through the small streets in SF!

This is an excellent vehicle. Got the 1.8T 6 speed manual Quattro with the sport package. Car has great pickup if you rev. the engine up to 3000 rpm's. Could use more low end torque and a few extra horsepower (225 Turbo would be perfect). Was thinking about the 3.0, but would lose that horsepower in higher elevation (I live in CO). The car is solid, and has an excellent interior. Have had it for 3 1/2 months now and no problems. Bose sound system is great. Leather interior feels great, and the car handles like a dream. The car grips the road like no other, even in the rain. Let the snow fall!

The Audi A4 3.0Q /6M has been a great car overall the past year. There is a good balance of power, stability and comfort with the vehicle during any driving condition. The enhacned stiffness of the frame for these model years have improved interior feel and perception of a solid, well built car; Which, no doubt, the A4 is. The A4 is in my opinion the best buy for its price range.

Wanted a versatile do-it-all vehicle (be fun, sporty, stylish, and practical (cargo and winter). Love the design and features (though maybe not the complexity and weight); still undecided about the suspension tuning. I endlessly debated the Sport Package but the stock ride is as firm as I want day-to-day on bad roads, and only in certain situations have I wished that things were more pulled-together. (I think better AWD driving technique would help!) The Avant?s position in space is hard to judge now, but I?m sure I?ll adjust to the dimensions and sightlines over time. 2200 miles/6 months on the car, no problems and no rattles/squeaks.

Good God I love this car!

This car's "Wow" factor is off the chart. Heads turn wherever I go. People pull up next to me a red lights to tell me how much they like it. The ride is so firm and solid it feels like the car was carved out of a solid piece of metal. With the top down there's only a little more wind than if you had the windows down in a sedan.

The car's 1.8liter and 4 cylinder engine with a 170HP sound worse than the actual performance that comes out. I previously owned a Nissan Maxima 6 cylinder and the audi from 0 to 60 leaves the maxima in the dust. However, the car reaches higher rpms much faster and begs the driver for quick shifting. The handling is excellent, however after 6 months with the car, the front struts and axls are creeky. In addition, the car has begun to make louder idle noises. The maxima is as quiet as a pussycat. Overall, it is difficult to compare the two being in different categories and the sacrifices that I made switching to a smaller car (interior is small).

Great Car. BAD Quality Experience.

New A4 1.8T Ultraport loaded. have a quality prob out of the shoot.BAD for a $37K MSRP car. W/in 4 hrs of delivery, the power steering failed due to a leak. The dealer repaired but did not replace the hose as promised. I was out the car overnight to get that hose. I did get rental/loaner. W/in 4 hours of pick up after repair. The prob ocurred AGAIN! The car is back at the dealer. I'm in a loaner. Fix = replace the ENTIRE strg rack. Replmt parts arrived, 1/2 way into install...parts deemed faulty.I am still w/out that new car, soon a lemon in this state. Buying a new car should not be this way. No Excuse Audi!!!

Absolutely love my 1.8T Ultra Sport

I looked very hard at the Volvo S60, Acura TL, and BMW 3 series. Audi without a doubt offered the best bang for the buck and in my opinion, nothing beats the A4's handling with Quattro. Plus once I got a look at the Ultra Sport package that sealed the deal. I can not count how many times people have commented on the look of my car. I have had the car 2 months now and have not had a single problem. Finally, I am very impressed with the gas mileage.

I am looking at $1500-2000 of repairs to my gas tank,wheel lining and shock absorber, not to mention the replacement tire,which was $180, because I had a flat tire on this vehicle at 2389 miles. To my dismay, neither the dealership, nor Audi of America, will stand behind their vehicle and cover any of this cost. I apparently had a leaking gas tank for several days before the "check engine" light alerted me to a potential problem. It would seem that the design of this automobile should address the severe damage that apparently can be caused on this car from a flat tire. It makes me concerned about my safety.

The turbo lag is noticable, but winding the engine up, even just a little, on take off takes care of this. The 6 speed also helps quicken the car up a great deal as compared to the automatic. We went with the Sport Package which does make the ride firm, but mini vans and SUV's really become annoying on on and off ramps :)

Get the ultra sport package at all cost! This is the difference maker (look-wise). I lowered suspension, 18" wheels and aluminum trim make the A4 a beautiful piece of machinery. I got my A4 through Costco's automotive program (Beverly Hills Audi). I saved over $2000.

Got my red hottie on a sweet lease. The 1.8 is better on gas and fast enough for me. Don't know why you need more, the low end torque is nice and the turbo is not that bad. I really thought about the S4, but really...do who needs to go that fast with a $50K car. Mine gets the looks and is great. Was looking at Acura, MB, BMW, MINI, Infiniti, Lexus, but there's something about the security of the quattro taking a highway curve at 80mph and feeling like you are on rails even in the rain. Oh yeah for jess saland down there, my gas door locks when the doors lock, you might check that.

This car has probably the best combination of attributes among sports sedans that will appeal to both right-brained and left-brained people. For left brainers, there's the super- smooth, cutting-edge CVT transmission that doesn't sap engine power to achieve creamy smoothness (I previously drove sticks); absence of torque steer; superb handling and value versus BMW (I paid the same for this as I did for a 2001 BMW 325i with fewer options and smaller engine). For right- brainers,there's the clean exterior lines with an aesthetically superior interior design and quality of materials that can't be matched in any price class.

My AUDI A4 is on the brink of "lemon" classification -- it has been in the shop for 22 days. I bought the car just 6 months ago and sadly, I've had problems with it for the past 3 months. According to the service center, it is not safe to drive. It shakes violently and for some unfortunate reason, always decides to buck when coming to a stop. The transmission part needed is on back order & Audi has no idea when it will arrive. Apparently "tracking systems" are not part of Audi's lexicon. I highly advise anyone interested in purchasing this vehicle to do plenty of research on the CVT system and think twice before going down this path.

Great Car!

After 4 MBZ SLK's my Audi is a much needed change. I almost forgot what a car in this class was suppose to be! Excellent ride, handling and fit! It is easy to see the outstanding attention to detail Audi has by the interior. Only one less than perfect comment - the cupholders. The in-dash holder does not hold cups correctly and falls out. The arm rest holders are, well, in the arm rest! Not very useable! However since this is my only less than perfect comment..I think I can live with it!

I use the car to commute to the train and I found that for $1500 more down and about $55.00 a month I can drive this hot car opposed to a Jeep Liberty! I needed the 4 wheel for the winter. I also have a ML320 which my wife uses but I don't mind traking this car to the city and going out with a customer. With the premium package black on black 50 tint 17 inch wheel sthe car is HOT!

Wonderful to drive, bought because it will seat 5 (4 adults, 1 child)and average over 30mpg. Test drove many others before purchasing and love this car. 4 yr-50,000 mile warranty didn't hurt either. Very well laid out interior, Bose XM stereo is awesome! All wheel drive handles well on wet or dry roadways. I'm 6'3" tall 230lbs. and it fits me well. Plenty of power from turbo. Did add a rear spoiler to set it apart from other A4s.

The handling is superb and the interior is even better!! I compared with BMW and bang for the buck, Audi is a better buy in the upscale category. For all of those of you who are looking for a family car or those of you who are single active people, the A4 Avant is certainly the best wagon out there. Get one, you won't be dissapointed!!

I purchased my A4 about a month ago after owning a '97 Lexus ES300. Wow, what a huge driving difference. While the ES was super smooth, it got a bit boring. The A4(3.0) has a great engine and is a blast to drive in the hills and mountains of West Virgina. Add to that the fact I got EXACTLY the options I wanted for well under Edmunds suggested fair value and I am quite satisfied.

Extremely pleased. Took delivery of the A4'04 in Oct '03. My first new car, from NYC where my 'car' was the 8th Ave A train - big improvement. Superbly appointed interior. Audi overlooks nothing - slow release overhead door handles, gradual dome light dimmer, back seat HVAC vents, subtly lit door handles and ashtrays, ambient light over the center console. Sound system a bell from Mozart to Metallica. Truck and glove have huge appetite. Engine pep is there when you need it regardless of the 'lag' aforementioned in previous reviews - great deep roar when you key the ignition makes you feel good every morning. Treat yourself and your passengers.

We sought a combo of comfort, a good combo of performance and economy & cost less < $30K. After looking at Accords, Passats, Camrys, Mazda 6 & 3, Acura TSX we choose an A4. We had to special order 1.8T CTV with the interior package as the only option to control cost. After 5 months & 5,4000 miles we're very pleased. On a 1,800K trip the comfort was supurb & we got 38 mpg. This is not a race car, but power is more than ample & we love the smoothness of the CVT & excellent gas mileage. Too soon to rate the long term reliablity, but it has been flawless so far. This car definitely has the feel of a winner!

This is a great car, well made, fantastic finish. Definitely fun to drive. For drivers in the North East, the combination of the AWD system and the convertible are a great match. I have owned a 98 528 and a 2001 E320, and this car is on par with the fit and finsih of the BMW and light years ahead of the Mercedes. The only knock I have is it is a little slow off the line but once you are at 20 mph you are fine. Gas mileage in general is fair but when you are in the sports transmission mode or drive it hard it poor, but I am sure most people are not buying this for the gas mileage....

But this car is much better suited for short urban trips than long-distance highway cuising. Front seats are far too hard and not very supportive unless you're smaller than average. Road noise is intrusive, especially on rough road surfaces. HVAC is drafty unless regulated manually.

By far the best car I've owned

The more I drive it, the more I love it. The 4 cylinder engine is terrific, I've put it through so much abuse yet after 17,000 miles absolutely nothing has gone wrong. Everyone who has been inside the car has enjoyed its comfort and the ambiance created by the red dashboard lighting. Thus far I have not heard a bad comment about any of the cars features. Ride comfort at all speeds and any road is imaculate, even with the sport suspension. Audi has done a terrific job when they created this car, they had "driver friendly" & "passenger comfort" during the crafting process. I will definately be a repeat buyer

There is NO other car with interiors to match Audi's quality and design. This was a huge factor in picking it over competition. 10 out of 10! Exterior is outstanding as well. I get tons of compliments, and this is a station wagon! Very modern, organic design that'll hold up over time.Car is quiet as a lexus, even at 80+mph. Smooth ride, good brakes. Performance is good. Of course it could use more power. Very well balanced in corners for such a heavy car. Quattro makes it fun in snow and rain. Cargo area is very usefull.Hauled 27 retaining wall blocks home from Home Depot with not problems. Great soundsystem, excellent controls and guages.

Excessive mechanical problems early (radio amp, roofliner, window closure, power steering) fixed by dealer. Audi extended warranty by 1 year for the inconvenience. No gears-strange initially, but a dream later on. CVT is deliciously smooth. Time the slight turbo lag, hit the gas a split second early. Computerized triptonic creates 6 “gears” to move through if you like. Punch through corners, enjoy quiet at speed. Power isn't extreme, but solid. I recommend the upgraded stereo and 17-inch rims, without sport suspension. The car is tight enough without it. Not everyone will have this car, but you don't want to be like everyone else, do you...?

The interior quality is 100% top notch, everything is thick and solid. 3.0 CVT has plenty of power, esp on the drive acceleration. Not too fast off the line but definitely gets you to 100mph pretty quickly. Didn't buy the car to race, instead bought it for all the little luxury features. Ride is bumpy with the sport package on LA streets. On other hand, the lowered suspension and 17" wheels makes the car look very sleek. Bose package is good, not great. 6 disc changer is well worth it but for the extra wattage I thought the stereo would have more kick. Overall, a perfect balance between good looks, great luxury features and solid performance handling.

Bought the Ultrasport as it was a knock- out sitting on the showroom floor. The visual difference between the Ultra and the stock car is so vast, the additional dollars don't seem to matter. You know you've got a great looking car when valet's comment on it and people ask about it at the car wash. The car is a hoot to drive, and is very responsive. The Quattro system, while adding weight, certainly picks up the slack in curves or slick roads. Audi could kick up the HP and I wouldn't mind, in fact, that is all I would ask for at this point, 20 or 30 more horses. The engine itself is great fun, with more personality than the 3.0. I love this car.

Only problem experienced has been a reoccuring one, involving the face plate on the driver instrumentation panel becoming loose, and it causes quite a distracting/distrubing noise. Taken in for repair twice, but seems to last only a few weeks before problem resurfaces. Otherwise, the car has been a pleasure, first-time owner but sure to be a loyal owner in the future...quattro performs amazingly well in icy conditions.

After deliberating and driving everything including Acura TL, Infiniti GX, Saab and BMW 5 Series (3 series seemed too small), I concluded this was the best of the bunch and best value for the money. Quality is outstanding, 3.0 engine is smooth and powerful, has great looks and interior is as nice as anything I have seen. Further, where traction is any kind of issue the quattro can't be beat. Really seems to be the best looking yet most practical sports sedan out there right now.

This A4 is undoubtedly the best all around car that we have ever owned. Zero defects so far. The Quattro system and ESP are unbelievable in slippery conditions. These systems also assert themselves in the dry; impervious to crosswinds; dead steady if you nail the throttle on a freeway cloverleaf. This car inspires confidence. The build quality is great. Complaints; poor fuel mileage and poor outward visibility. The outside mirrors are too small.

I had an Volvo Suv which is a great car but too much for this small girl to handle or see out of...It takes driving a big vehicle to make you miss the handling and easy maneuvering of a smaller car. This is the closest thing to driving a BMW 5 series--has a really tight feel and response with the added cache of all wheel drive! I drove the BMW 3 series, which handles well, but the interior was inferior to the Audi!

I think the car will be fun to drive but since I had an accident on day 2 of ownership, I don't know yet. It will soon be three months and the availability of spare parts is keeping me from enjoying the car. Unfortunately, Audi spare parts are either unavailable or marked improperly when orderd. My repair shop classifies Audi as the worst in terms of difficulty in getting the right parts in a timely manner. Audi may be a world class car but they apparently have a third world supply chain!

As I buy cars for 5-10 years of ownership, I did not want to have a turbo to maintain... and I appreciated the extra power and smoothness of the 3.0 six. Car is incredibly well-suited to long highway stints as well as carving up twisty roads. And it handles city living (and horrible city roads here in Washington, DC) with aplomb. AND when it snows and the city doesn't plow our street we just get in our all- wheel-drive Audi and drive out!!! The warranty and free maintanence --as well as great dealer-- make this a great ownership experience. Very pleased.

My wife wanted four wheel drive and I wanted to keep my convertible. This car provides both! The 3.0 rides extremely well (better than my Mercedes C230), has more than sufficient acceleration, is quiet, has a great convertible top and looks super. It also feels bigger than the BMW 3 series. After doing a significant amount of research I am extremely satisfied with my decision.

It's the one!

Wonderful automobile, good power to weight ratio, excellent handling characteristics, strong braking, quick off the line and easy to merge into freeway traffic at speed. Roomy and comfortable, even the back seats accomodate adults comfortably. The fit and finish rate excellent and the 17" wheels and tires give the car that solid, all business appearance. It's our 6th Audi and it's the best one yet.

Having driven a Mercedes ML430 for four years, I am released at last into a fun, stable, safe machine that my kids and I love. It has plenty of luggage room, handles beautifully in the snow on my treacherous driveway, and makes me feel like a human being again. The ML nearly broke my back.

Great buy!

This car screams quality through-and- through! It offers a great ride, impressive perquisites, a classy look, and a price that is competitive with other entry-level luxury convertibles. It has surprisingly good pick-up, given its powertrain. It is a joy both to drive and to own! Run... don't walk... to your dealer and purchase one of these gems!

The A4 has a substantial feel, with class-leading interior which boasts high quality materials and several thoughtful touches throughout. On the road, the A4 is a very capable highway cruiser and canyon-carver, with plenty of mid-range oomph and superb handling. There is no real "turbo lag," just a sensation of being propelled ever more rapidly that builds above 2,000 RPM. Shifts are smooth, with precise feel, though the clutch does have longish travel. Seat-of-pants communication is terrific, with a good balance between ride and handling.

My father got me the Cabriolet for my birthday and it's been a joy to have. The triple layer top allows me to drive it in the winter, but it's a summer made car. Both sports and luxurious, it's a great car to have as a teenager. It's safe and fuel efficient. Needless to say, I'm usually the designated driver. The only downside is the cupholders, one on the dash and the other inside the armrest, both are inconvient to access.

Took delivery of my 04 in August and still try to find reasons to get myself behind the wheel. If you're coming from a faster car it may be a bit slow for you (not the case for me). The "Turbo Lag" is not an issue on the automatic in my opinion. Overall I've never owned a better car and still try to find reasons why this car isn't perfect. There were some reported issues in the original B6 platform models (2002-3 A4's) but those have been resolved (mainly coilpack stuff). I hope anyone looking at a BMW 3 series or Saab 9-3 has a look at the Audi, it certainly has something to offer.

All aspects - the tight engineering and design, the smart use of turbo in a 4 cyliner - add up to just a great purchase. One little complaint? The standard sound system is tinny at low decibels... of course easily cured by turning up the volume.

Audi more comfortable Better finish and through my usual corners as fast and sure footed Will be doing track time this summmer - so will see what lap times are. Winter driving in the rain (Seattle) a real plus. Gas milage down by 3 mpg - due to Quattro

I purchased the 2004 Audi A4 about two months ago and so pleased in what I bought. I looked at and compared the Lexus ES 330, BMW 3 series, Volvo S60 and the Audi A4. With out any question I thought that the Audi out performed these competitors in handling, interior look, style and most of all price. The all wheel drive was so amazing in the snow that I was looking for snow terrain to plow through. The lighting package allows you to see much father and gives a clean and clearer visibility when driving at night.

Traded in my '99 for an '04. The interior is even classier than the original, the seats are more comfortable. This car is a pleasure to drive in any weather. Test drove the 3- series, c-class, TSX and G35 and none even compared to my previous A4. The 3- series handles very similarly, but lacks 4-wheel drive and costs too much money when considering features and interior quality. Audi dealers seem to be fancying up their facilities and services to compete with other luxury makes, and my dealer was great with servicing my previous A4. I would definately recommend this car to anyone.

Chock full of features and power. The 6-speed manual is a blast, but the engine could use more low-end torque; it's a little slow off the line and it hits a noticeable peak at around 4000 RPM, pretty high for a 3.0. A great value, expecially compared to the BMW 3 Series. Interior is downright sexy, except for the cupholders.

I have a hard time reading reviews about this car that state there's 'not enough power' . The 1.8T is a perfect match for this car, especially if you drive in adverse conditions as we do here in Canada on a regular basis. My A4 has about 1500 miles clocked and although by no means a rocket ship, is quite satisfying for an entry level LUXURY SPORT SEDAN. Want more power and the same level of sophistication? Get an S4. Before purchasing, I drove both the 3.0 and 1.8T. There isn't enough of a difference to justify the price for a 3.0. And you simply must get the 'Sport Package", Handles MUCH better and the lowered car just plain looks great.

This is my wife's car. Very easy to park. The trunk is a little small. The sound system is excellent. The alloy wheels extend too far from the tire and have caused curb scratches on the finish. The cvt transmission is very fluid and quick for her. (She drove a 91 SAAB) She now has three speeding tickets. The sense of speed is not a factor. Very little wind speed and rear wind deflector works great.

I test drove the Passat V6, the Jetta V6 and ended up with the Audi A4 1.8T. I did not like the jerkey shift in the Passat, it did not feel as comfortible as the Audi. The Audi dealer was very helpful in explaining all the features of our new car. The test drive was quite long, we went on the freeway and the quattro system was explained in detail. I was told the Audi was one of the safest cars in its class. The quattro is a dream in the rain. My insurance premium is only $1000 per year. I think this is the best all around car in the world for performance, reliability, safety, fuel economy and comfort. My wife and i argue over whom is going to drive the new Audi.

This is a fine car. I have the 3.0 engine and that gives it a real jump. The car handles well, especially in bad weather. This is my third A-4 since 1996 and I think it is really the best. MY wife uses it more than I do and I feel very comfortable with her driving it from a safety perspective. The 2003 model is the most comfortable of the 3 A-4's that I have owned. I think that with the larger engine, it does not get the greatest mileage, but that is a tradeoff. I highly recommend it.

This car handles like no car I have driven. Audi seems to have put the perfect suspension with the perfect weight and wheel base in the A4. Add the quatro system, that makes any other all wheel drive technology seem prehistoric, and you have one mean handling machine, whatever the road conditions. The design of the car is beautiful. The interior is sleek and stylish. Driver comfort is the perfect balance between a larger sedan and a sport coup. Sitting in the car and driving it is like putting on a soft leather glove.

The 3.0 6 Speed I just picked up is as close to perfect as any automobile ever made. Prior to this car I had a 1998 2.8 quattro that I thought was very hard to improve upon. Audi has done it with the 2004 A4. The driving characteristics and refinement has improved while sacrificing litte of the edgy performance feel of the prior model. The fit and finish of this car is impecable. Having recently been in a Mercedes S500 and BMW 745i, I believe the interior quality of my new A4 is superior. The Dolphin Gray Exterior and Platinum interior make for one beutiful machine.

If you live somewhere where it rains or snows frequently (i.e. the Northeast) definitely look at this car. Don't waste your time with the 1.8T engine. I know I said be careful but I would buy another one in a second (my wife drives an A6). I have had some problems with climate control and had a major gas leak!! Audi's warranty and service has taken care of it no problem though. Highly recommended to people who like to drive but want good German performance. Warranty is excellent too.

This car is a dream to drive. With the sport package, which stiffens the springs and lowers the car, it sticks to the road. Audi also offers many options, as I have added an Audi body kit, which really looks great.

The Audi A4 1.8T Convertible is worth every penny paid for! While it may not have the power of the BMW, it sure does possess the style, handling and comfort of its German counterpart. The car is nicely equipped when the Premium & Sport package is added. It is a blast to drive and performs well....catching the eyes of many on lookers as it passes 'em by!!!!!

I love the Audi A4. I love the way it looks and it's a great price for a luxury vehicle. It's fun to drive because of it's sporty grip on the road but does lack horse power. The interior is designed beautifully but it has very little space in the back seat, yet a ironically large trunk. Being the back seat is so small it does not make a good small family vehicle. Other than that, I love the car.

This car turns on a dime however be careful... it only takes a few seconds to get to 60 mph and 90mph doesn't feel like 90. Wonderful ride, lush interior and piece of mind when driving with little ones. You know that you are safe when driving with Audi.

I am thrilled with my new Audi. I have had convertibles before, but nothing like this! It is awsome. Would love to have the bigger engine, but the 1.8 tubo is hot with the tiptronic transmission.

I traded in a Chrysler Sebring Convertible (that I loved) and I've never looked back. I get lots of comments on the A4's elegant looks, esp. the way it looks with the top down since it hides away in the trunk. The care is a little slow off the line, but once up to speed, I have no complaints. (I have the 1.8 turbo) I also love the service at the Audi dealership.

If you have money to buy this car, having a cd should not be a problem. Audi should offer that as an optional for those that want a 2004 car with with a 1970 audio system. Overall great!

This practical yet fun to drive wagon is the best of both worlds. The 1.8T engine with Auto/Manual mode has a lot of giddyup and when you're cruising on the highway, I've gotten as much as 33 mph! Put the 2nd row seats down and the cargo space is awesome. I get some looks when I load the stuff in there. This Audi is so much more reliable than the Lexus IS300 Sportcross I had. Only 1 10,000 mile checkup vs. 6 times into the shop for the Lexus. (So much for the passionate pursuit of perfection) Audi uber alles!

I chose the A4 Cabriolet 3.0 Quattro over the BMW 330ci, Volvo S70 Covertible, MB 320 Cabriolet, Infiniti G35 Coupe and others based on four previously satisfactory experiences with Audi. Their cars continue to offer an unbeatable combinatgion of some of the highest build quality, design, materials and performance at a very competitive price. My new A4 Cabriolet is (so far) the best of my Audis.

Complements is what you get from this car. Once you start to drive this car off the lot you will notice the extreme smoothness of the engine and transmission. Not to mention the handling is a true pleasure. I have really tested this car out now for the past six months and I have been able to keep up with M3’s on the 110 between downtown and Pasadena. In the LA rain you have the full confidence of Quattro and stability control. If you haven’t ever driven Quattro in the rain, well you’re missing out on some serious traction. The upgraded Bose system is so crisp and ear piercingly loud. People who know cars buy Audi who don’t buy BMW.

I did alot of research and wanted a convertible with front wheel drive for winter, a back seat for two, and looks that could turn heads. This car fills the bill and more. The top goes down fast, the car handles beautifully, and the controls especially on the wheel are great.I would recommend getting the wind screen for highway driving. It really makes a difference with your significant female other.The transmission is silky smooth and this car can pass anything on the road without a problem.In summary, it is a car that is fun to drive and great to look at

The A4 is overall is a great choice. You don't have a choice though, with the A4, of going Quattro, unless you do the 3.0. It just takes too much power away from the front where you need the performance. Perfect ride. I highly recommend the 1.8 CVT. It's a smooth, smooth ride. You really begin to realize how annoying gear changes are in other automatics when you get out of the Audi and into other cars.

.. and I LOVE it. I was going to get the TSX, until I drove the quattro. I'm about halfway through the break-in period, so I'm still trying to treat it gently. But it's so hard to restrain myself. I do not find the car to be at all underpowered (having most of the torque at 1950+ rpm helps). The ride is firm on the highway, but not punishing around town. It's super quiet. And the fit-and-finish inside and out is incredible, even in the trunk. Now I'm crossing my fingers my first Audi will be a reliable one.

Audi gives u a 4 yr 50,000 mile warranty which covers everything except tires. that alone is a great thng to have. I also own a Bmw at the moment and would def like to trade it in the near future. the overall service from Audi Customer Relations and The purchasing dealer have been great. Its great to get into a Audi loaner as well when u come for Service not a Enterprise Escort when u have Bmw And Benz.

This car is quick, but not fast. Great gearbox, very crisp and pretty short throws. Have yet to try the quattro in the snow, but this thing feels like it is on rails. This was the only car I could find that met the majority of my requirements in performance and luxury. I looked at the G35, 330, 9-3, TSX and IS300 and ultimately choose the Audi. AWD was a big factor for me over the G35 and 330. It is hard not to love this car....

The wide threshold results in difficulty getting out of the car. Coupled with wide doors that don't open enough when in a parking space, the car is just not comfortable unless you're over 6 feet, or want to push the seat all the way back to get out. Also, when the top is up, the visibility is very poor when backing out of a parking space.

The A4 with the smaller turbo engine gets great gas mileage, has just enough pep for anyone, and the sticker on mine was less than 34k. (Power everything, leather, 17"low profile alloys, tiptronic, all wheel drive, heated seats, the list goes on and on) Unless you live in L.A and have no snow and you want to waste an extra $5,000 dollars on a similarly equipped viechle, buy or lease the AUDI before they realize they could get $3,000 more for the car and people would still buy it.

The 3 series works well in dry weather but I needed a safe car thats smart enough direct power to the sticky part of the road when needed. I trust this car far beyond the limits of most other cars. I know when my wife and kids are traveling they have an incredible advantage. When you learn how to get the most from Quattro drives you earn a confidence few understand or will ever know. I driven Q's on the race track pushing the limit and beyond, they may be slightly slower to the next light but after a few S's, little rain or god forbid snow the 2 wheel drives are better off at home.

I've had my A4 for almost a year now. Driving this car is without a doubt one of the best driving experiences I've ever had. Great buy compared to the TL and 3 series. TL is a great car for the value, but the interior and exterior doesn't compare. The 3 series is too expensive once you added ANY features. A4 is by far the best bang for the buck. If you bargain right, you can add almost every option and still only spend around $31k-$32k. Some minor problems (listed below), but I end on this note, if you're in the market to get an entry-level luxury sedan, buy or lease an A4. You won't be disappointed.

I don't know how I waited that long to have suche A+ class car. Great product, confortable, it fits perfectly for and average 5'10 to 6 foot tall people. Great performace once you put your RPMs over 3000. The 6SP tends to rev really fast, so the first 3 gears have to be changed quickly. The torque under 2100 just pushes the car a bit, the the turbo comes and nails you to the seat (careful departing from stop signs). Really happy with the car. PERFECT for daily commute. As for the shark fin... just try to ignore it.

I drove both 325 and A4 and decided that there wasn't much difference between the handling, and went for more bang for the money. The car handles great, really good pick up, and excellent fuel economy. And most of all, it is a fun car to drive. I needed some getting used to the CVT, but now that I am used to the smoothness, I am really happy with it.

Good Idea A4

I've had my A4 quattro for around 2 months now and I'm very happy with this car. I look foward to driving to and from work everyday. This car is just a blast to drive. The 1.8T may not have as much power as the 3.0 but beleive me the car flies when you need it to. Solid construction, great Audi sound system, sharp looking car.

Why get a BMW, Infinite or Lexus when you can get all of what they have and more. This unique car is set apart from the others with it's comfort, safety and for the guys who love their gadgets, this car has so many, that you couldn't possibly remember all of them. When it comes to speed, this car rips!!! I mean WOW! When I'm driving I don't relize when I jump up to 75 MPH because it is that quick and that smooth. If that's not fast enough just pull the gear shift back one more notch to "Sport Car" mode and you can feel the engine Scream! In this mode, you feel like you are in a Porshe. This car is the greatest car that I have ever owned!

Two words......Awsome Car!!!!! i owned a passat GLS 1.8T 5sp Man. the suspension was very soft for me. The A4 is in NO WAY like the passat....much better fit and finish (not that the passat was lacking) everything in the car just feels and operates like its of the highest of quality. looked at the BMW 325i with sport package....found it to be pretty lame in comparison to this A4. for the money you can get faster cars but handling and quality dont compare. Sport suspension is very tight on the A4 so expect a VERY firm ride. But its worth it when you zip around corners.

For the money the best car on the road. I've driven in torential downpours at 80mph and the car didn't budge. I also have a BMW and I must say they handle about the same.

The Audi A4 convertible is a great car and fun to drive. I have had issues with the top not operating properly and the middle brake light cycling on and off, but overall a great little car.

So here goes....I must say this is the very best car I have ever drivin. The car has unbelievable power for such a small car. In addition to this the customer service at the dealership has been great. The most impressive feature is how the car lights up at night. So far I have shown this car to alot of people and most just looking at it want to go get one. Just be careful you will get some speedin tixs with this speedster.

best car!!

THE CAR IS EXTREMELY WELL DONE. The experience i have had thus far is just the incredible handling and extremely sophisticated convertible top, which gives me a sedan like db on the interior. Audi even placed carpet under the wheel well.

The A4 has been so far a good car, a great performer on the road and off. The best thing about the car is the Quattro, and the 1.8T. The Quattro system is the best AWD system i've driven, it's just perfect, and when matched to the 1.8T engine, you not only have a car that can go easily through snow without any problems you also have a car that sounds great, and whenever needed the passing power to match. I've had two problems while owning the car the electical system, and bad dealer to customer treatment. This is how my review will end, the A4 is the best looking and most bang-for- the-buck from all the german luxury car segment.

Nice Car
