I bought the car scared of having huge maintenance costs, however. it has cost me less than my Honda Odyssey. All i needed to do were a oil change, tires, and a cracked windshield. Find one well maintained and you'll be set. Drives like a dream.

Audi got it right with this car. I have 187,000 miles on it and it runs/drives great. Paint is a little chipped from the constant driving and I hit a deer that made a dent in the driver's side door but other than that the car handles great on winding mountain roads and in the snow/rain. I change the oil every 5000 miles with full synthetic and the engine hums like new. Only complaint is changing the timing belt and water pump every 100,000 miles ($1600). I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking to pick up a used car for a teenager.

Highly recommended

Many people complain about expensive maintenance. If you are like me and do your own maintenance, there is very little you have to do or pay. I have an OBD II computer that I use whenever the check engine light comes on (not often). I bought it with 55,000 miles on it, it now has 87,000. I've had to replace a coil pack (easy fix, $37 and 1 hour of my own labor), divertor valve ($150, 2 hours labor), and that is all. To change your oil, it is handy if you have the Audi tool ($100) for cartridge style oil filters (you'll have a mess if you don't), but you can make your own pretty easily out of a hose and the right diameter bottle. The car drives absolutely beautifully, couldn't be happier.

I bought this car with 45K miles on it as a 2nd home car for Arizona. I had an A4 convertible in NJ, a 2007, and loved it. I love this car too. Great pickup and go, been a great car (now with 67K miles on it). Car looks almost new as I get it detailed inside and out every year in AZ. The only problem are the cloudy headlights which I'd like to get remedied.

For all of you that said that if you don't take care of your car then of course you can expect problems, seriously, you should just be sooooo lucky that you go one of the few NON-LEMONS. I have kept my car in mint condition and I have had the ignition coils replaced 5 times! The altenator, crankshaft, Electronic Control Module, Purge Valve, and the transmission is failing. It is now at audi with an estimated repair of 4,500. I bought the car in 2009 and almost instantly had mechanical problems and I bought it as a certified pre-owned. The thing that makes me the most mad is that they are known recalls but will only cover them the first go around. Be ready to fix them over and over.

Fantastic Car

I've had my 2006 A4 for about a year now and it runs like a champ. Had 85k on the odometer and since I've put another 15k this year. The car is great in every way. It looks great, classy, good performance for a sedan, and very comfy. Also the car its self is very reliable BUT I feel that many previous owners will not take good care of the car. These cars are very picky and need premium fuel, synthetic oil changes, etc. Before you buy make sure the previous owner took care of the car because maintenance and repair costs do add up. This year alone I've spent about $1500 in maintenance including, transmission fluid, tune up, brakes, fuel cleaning, new turbo etc. But all in all great car!

One of my best purchases!

I'm the 4th owner, and purchased this car after a GREAT deal of researching for 2 weeks. I bought this car in 2011 (it was 5 model years old then) with 54k miles on the clock, and have been pleasantly surprised by its reliability. In the 2 years and 3 months I've owned my Audi, I've only spent $300 on service that wasn't routine maintenance. At 72k miles I had to replace the turbo recirculation valve. At the local Audi dealership they replaced several parts that weren't even on a recall and despite the fact that my car was WAY out of warranty...all at no charge, and topped it off with a complimentary car wash and synthetic oil change.

If you have money to blow, and you want a flashy, luxurious, thrilling sports car then you need an Audi A4 Quattro. The car is a rock star. HOWEVER: If you don't have a spare $5000 to blow at all times, this car is not for you. Even if you take obsessive care of it, the car will have problems (I'm quoting the Audi service rep Britney at Audi Chandler, Arizona). My AC blew out, $2500 to fix. She said it happens all the time!!?? I constantly have to replace interior parts like the glove box cover, dash case, and shift knob compartment. Repairs routinely cost over $1200. Combine with $1200 regular maintenence and you have a serious ethical decision to make. Is it worth it? Not for me. Honda!

Very Satisfied

I've read all the gripes about reliability and maintenance costs, and wonder if it's just the owners of the lemons using this forum to let off some steam. Suppose I'd do the same, actually, but I've been really happy with our Audi. Its design is understated, not flashy, almost utilitarian, but very classy. It's stood the test of time well and looks as good as any of the current models. As for reliability, we've really had no major issues. As NYC drivers, we put the wheels and tires to the test on our pitiful roads, and thus have changed many tires. This is really my only gripe, but that can hardly be blamed on the car.

Steering wheel can be heavier but handling is great in general. The brake is sometimes not responsive enough esp when going downhill, but since the brake pads havent been replaced for quite a while already that is perfectly normal & I could tell the brake will be awesome once i get the pads replaced. Engine is a 1.8T but I consider it more than powerful enough for a new driver driving in a small city like HK. I especially love driving it on highways and it is always ready to offer you a pep whenever you need/want it - so overtaking can be done at ease. It runs stably & noise isolation is great. Awesome interior build quality.

Original purchaser, just over 5 years with not quite 60k km's/37k mi on it, all easy miles. All maintenance done by Audi per recommended schedule. Great car to drive, but expensive to maintain once OoW. Low oil pressure light/check engine light 1 month out of warranty. Known issue with oil starvation due to sludge requires a complete engine replacement - $12k. Dealer went to bat for me and Audi's covering a portion, but even so, it's more than I spent on my last 2 Ford's with twice the mileage. Clicking noises come from dash when cold due to known issues with actuators. Audi won't cover even though reported under warranty. Even basic service is 2X my Ford/Honda. Costly lesson.

For the last 15 years I drove a BMW or MBZ, beacause what I like to call "QUALITY OF DRIVE." Downside higher fuel costs & repairs. Another BMW/MBZ is out of the question; as pricing isn't sensible and searched until I was surprised by the quality of the Audi A4. My 'near-new' A4 is as surefooted as my BMW, but tons lighter like my MBZ. Luxury is not lacking but, could be better. What I love the most is both my BMW/MBZ's ran approx 16-21 mpg -- I'm now at 30 MPG's in my Audi A4 2.0T and she get's me 500 miles between fill-ups. This is the best of both worlds! Since I also purchased 'Near New' I purchased the extended warranty -- german vehicles can be fickle -- you just never know.

If I only listened to my friend who begged me not to purchase an Audi after an awful experience, my life would have been much better over the past three years. Twelve check engine lights later and a new transmission, I am here to proclaim that Audi is a nightmare and does not stand by its product. During a three year period, my A4 was in the shop approximately 35 days. Audi is one of the few cars that charge a deductible for part covered under a CPO warranty. I had to shell out $85 per visit, which amounted to $1020 not including tax. If you dare to own an Audi and like misery, I suggest getting a warranty to ease the pain. Although my Audi experience was painful, I learned a life lesson!

I purchase my A4 2.0T quattro new in 2006. Since then I have driven the car 167,588 miles. I have spent $5,800 so far in maint & repairs including tires. I have followed the maint schedule to the letter except for oil changes. I do the oil & filter every 5000 miles. The car still consistently gets 30-32 MPG. It still has the original shocks and exhaust. it will need it's second timing belt at 190,000. The timing belt is a maitenance item. Handling in the snow is effortless and safe. I am curious as to why so many bad reviews. Maybe the cars were not maintained properly from the start or abused. The bi-zeon lights had been troublesome but the dealer & Audi took care of the issue.

I have 52k miles and my warranty expired over 2 years ago. The only issue I had was a low oil pressure light that was showing once in couple of days. Audi replaced the sensor first, and since it did not fix the problem, they did replaced the oil pump. I had the issue reported to Audi when warranty active, so even my warranty was out for 8 months, they still covered the issue.

Will never own an audi again!!

I purchased this car as a certified pre-owned vehicle at 26000miles thankful I purchased the warranty. In the 1st week check engine light came on. Few weeks later my fuel pump went out. A couple months later, some valves have failed in the engine. A couple months after that-some hose have melted and caused a check engine light.. Then coil pack. Then transmission. Transmisson again. Fuel pump.. again. Oil pump, engine valves. All in a 1.5 yrs. 70,000 miles now. I'm selling this car as soon as I get it back from dealer. Never again! I only drive to and from work on the hwy, scheduled maint always was done, but it was a lemon. No help from dealer, or Audi USA-can't admit there is an issue.

I purchased my 06 A4 BRAND NEW. Within 6 months it had to be towed...not once but twice for ignition coil failure. One time I was crossing over a large bridge and the car was chugging the second time I was stuck and the car wouldn't start. It was down hill from there. Oil leaks breather valve went, and a host of other issues. Cost me a fortune (high mileage). I don't appreciate ppl saying things about not taking care of the car. My car was beyond taken care of and it was still in service all the time. STAY AWAY. They will NOT help you or admit theres an issue even though they are aware of all these issues. I traded it in for a honda, and can guarantee it will be more reliable!!

Good looking, very fast and handles like a dream. Definitely a fun to drive car. In terms of reliability, this is the worse car I've ever owned. I have to take it to the dealer while it was under warranty at least twice. The oil filter housing (made out of plastic) broke during an oil change and it took nearly a week to receive a new one, which was over a $100. The last moth I had it, it threw "check engine" lights for three different issues. For the last one the dealer wanted over $1000 to repair it. I had them clear the light, drove it to the nearest Honda dealership, traded it in, and never looked back... for 61,000 miles, I'm disappointed.

Initially, I was very happy with my purchase of the Audi A4. With it's AWD, it was the perfect choice for driving in Wisconsin winters. However, four years into my purchase, I am very disappointed because of the shoddy wear of the interior. The glove box has fallen off, and from what I read in Audi forums, this is fairly common and Audi charges big bucks to fix this defect. The leather of the drivers seat has developed cracks. And the hinge on the center console has stopped working. I previously owned a BMW 318ti for 10 years. Year ten, the interior was just as good as the day I purchased it. For the money, I was expecting the same quality. Audi does not deliver. I will return to BMW.

If you not care about your car, you will get a lot of problems! So stop writing bad reviews! Check oil level on every fueling, don't drive you car after starting the engine first time in the morning, wait couple minuets, don't kill engine, and you never get a problems!

Sometimes locks doors when I exit car, even w/ motor running, which should be impossible. Once refused to shift down while passing a car and refused to accelerate in any selected gear except "Drive." Revs would peak at 4k, even with accelerator planted firmly to firewall. Tried every possible position of gear selector and punched the accelerator to downshift during 50 miles of freeway driving, to no avail. After shutdown, no problem. Do not trust this car. Dealer's tech indicates he never heard of such a problem. Dealer is 200 miles distant, and tech doubts problem can be diagnosed, since no warning lights were lit.

I drove this car 25 miles per day only back and forth from work, no hard driving, all interstate. Check engine light came on one day and took to dealer and told $11,000 to fix, need new camshaft, turbo out, and a list of things.

I was stopped by a light ready to make a left turn, foot on the brake-car in drive as always. Suddenly the engine started to re to what seemed like the redline. Brakes barely held so I immediately put the car into neutral and stepped on the accelerator to quiet the engine. It worked but I just missed hitting the car in front by about 2 feet. Had it flatbedded to Audi who (even after a technician came) couldn't find anything wrong. If it happened once it will happen again. No carpet issue. I love this car and wish they would have found something. Reported to nhtsa who will investigate. Happen to anyone else? This is a major accident waiting to happen. Be very careful my friends.

Now 2k out of warranty, 4th cylinder taking in air, bad valve seat, needs new cylinder head & misc. valves. And now they're telling me the problem is that I'm changing the oil & performing maintenance per the manufacturer's instructions & I should co-pay the bill on a pre-existing condition!?

What a fun car to drive. It hugs the road, it whips up to speed in seconds, it sips gas and it looks like a millionaire's car. Unfortunately at 62,000 miles I just found out the engine needs to be replaced. Fortunately I purchased the car nine (9) months ago as a certified pre-owned so the work will be covered under their warranty.

Well balanced road manners. The quattro system is amazing in the snow. Very stable on wet roadways. Full size spare tire is a plus. Very comfortable seats. Heating and a/c controls are too complicated. Fit and finish inside and out is of a very high quality. My A4 came with every available option. I have put 98,000 miles on it since I purchased new in 04/2006. Maintenance can be expensive. I get 30mpg average city/highway. Have gotten 36mpg on a long trip. Adaptive xenon headlights are ok but kind of gimmicky. Had to have them replaced under warranty. Timing belt requires replacement at 110,000 miles. I just had mine done at 90,000miles. Cost was $1,600.

I have owned my Audi for nearly two years and have put a considerable amount of miles on it. I've only needed to bring it in once outside of its scheduled maintenance for a minor problem (engine coolant leak). This car is beautifully designed, and drives like a sports car. Handles phenomenally in snowy/icy conditions and like a dream on dry pavement. I'm not rich so when I buy a car it's a big deal (I must have spent 6 mos deciding and comparing other vehicles!), but I don't think for the money I could have made a better choice!

I would do it again!!!

18 Months and 35K+ miles later: I would do it again, "Buy Another Certified Audi Vehicle". 29MPG Highway occasional better. Incredible in snow of any depth here in Southern WI. Zero Maintenance issues!!!!!! Just replaced the OEM Continental Tires at 60K+ miles. Purchased Ultra High Performance Eagle GT's from Goodyear. Great looking, fun to Drive, head turning vehicle. Everything I had hoped for when buying my first European AWD Car. Be sure to ask about the interest rate for Certified Used, the extended warranty and the service package up to 100K Miles. 12 more months and I'm searching for a 2008 or 2009.

My husband and I had researched used A4s for the last year, and finally found one with the right features. Because we bought it with under 30k miles and the previous owner had taken exceptional care of it, it feels like a brand new car. The handling is WONDERFUL; the car has the optional sport suspension, and it makes a difference. There is plenty of power, and the the car purrs getting onto the freeway. It's also very comfortable inside, and everything about it feels posh. I'm looking forward to driving this car for the next few years!

This vehicle has been everything I've expected and more. On most of my highway trips (usually 800 miles each way) I average around 30mpg and that's crossing the Rocky Mountains. The performance of the 2.0T is great for a 4cyl. Rarely do I have to shift out of 6th gear in order to pass or go up a grade. The interior is very comfortable and well laid out. The fit & finish is amazing, as expected from an Audi. Overall, I can't say this car is perfect but any of it's slight nuances are easily overshadowed by everything else.

This car is awesome! I didn't drive much prior to owning this car, but it begs to be driven! I did chip it to get some additional HP and torque, and put on light weight 18" wheels and ultra high proformance tires to lighten it some but even the stock version was fun to drive! If you buy this car or have a chance to drive it, take it on a canyon road and really push the car! It responds great to tight corners and accelerates like a dream! Nothing anyone can write will express the true enjoyment you get with this car! Even rush hour traffic is bearable! Quattro is a must! Try it for yourself!

I bought my A4 used with 29K miles, and it feels like I bought a new car. The 2.0T is more than enough for normal daily driving. The CVT took a little getting used to, but now I love the smooth shifting it provides. The interior is very classy. Overall, this car makes me want Audis for the rest of my life.

I picked up a 2006 A4 2.0T with all the bells and whistles and I love it. It handles wonderfully, it wants to be driven fast and in tight spots. I have wanted an A4 since the 2005.5 was introduced. The style and comfort make me smile everytime! I finally enjoy driving everyday. I will never drive a two wheel drive vehicle again (I live in Michigan).

The 6 spd transmission and the 2.0L engine are totally made for each other, I am getting 37 mpg (7.6L/100km) with commute type driving, which is far better that I expected. I traded an 06 Jetta TDI for this, which would give me 6.2L/100km (45 mpg). But now that diesel is $1.06/L and regular is $.94/l, (yes you can run 87 octane) my cost per KM for fuel is only 2 cents more and I get killer traction with Quattro and Hakapelita that defies description. The car needs more little storage places like the Jetta and an arm rest that can be used along with two cups of Timmy's in the holder. This is a driver's car, and worth every penny.

For this empty-nester, the A4 Avant is great for cross country trips for two with lots of stuff. 30+ mpg on trips, 27 overall. The 6-spd manual is rare in an Avant, but it's great fun when combine with sports suspension. At occasional track days, this fuddy-duddy station wagon can stay with some expensive sports machines. About all this car isn't good at is sneaking up on pedestrians, as direction injection engine has an almost-diesel clatter.

Very Happy With the A4

Went to Dealership to test drive a 2005 allroad. I never owned a sedan in my life, and I just assumed I would be attracted to something larger. They had a 2006 3.2 A4 Quattro (Auto w/Triptronic) and an S4 as well. The Allroad was great, a little too broken in though. I drove the 2006 A4 and was immediately comfortable. It was tight, fast, and the interior didn't feel as small as I thought it would be. Got it with 23,000 miles, with just about every option except nav, which I hate anyway. This car suits me perfectly. The perfect balance of power, safety, style, and performance.

I have owned an Acura, 2 Hondas, a Volvo, Chevy Blazer, and 2 Land Rover Discoverys and now an Audi. Based on my experience so far, I will hopefully own nothing but Audis going forward. This is a wonderful car. Build quality and fit and finish are superb. I have never felt safer in any car. Even with the 2.0 litre engine, acceleration is very spirited (even though there is some hesitation at take-off) and I find myself cruising well above the legal limit without even realizing it. Living in the mid-Atlantic area, I was hesitant to give up 4WD from my Land Rover, so quattro was a major factor in choosing the Audi. Looked at the 3-Series BMW, but the Audi is a much more impressive vehicle.

Owned an Audi 5000CS during the unintended acceleration scare years. Fun to drive but a nightmare with repairs. Waited all these years to buy an Audi A4 wagon. Great design and overall build. However, had to have it towed after it died in the middle of an intersection. Supposed bad fuel pump sensor. Under warranty. Much bigger problem is the transmission (new design) that hesitates between 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Hesitates so long that it is unsafe when pulling out into traffic, etc. Dealer said it's the nature of the beast and to change the way I drive. Can't wait to return car. Luckily, I only have 9 months left on lease. Feels unsafe to drive. Take a long test drive before you buy.

I've own this car for about a year and a half now. So far this car has been in the shop for more than 7 times due to multiple recalls that I was never notified and malfunctions. One recall I was in total shock was the airbag, it was not functioning and I never got a recall letter until I had to get a letter of recalls for importing my car to Canada. The engine ignition had problems, the valve got disconnected after a few thousand miles, and my car would do this horrid shaking (I thought I was in an earthquake). What else, now the suspension is squeaking. This should not be happening to a car of this price. I will never buy audi again.

My 2006 Avant 3.2 manual has the premium, s-line, cold and titanium packages. I defected from BMW. This car has great handling with understated looks but still gets stares. The manual shifts crisply and the power through all gears is great. It really pulls through each one when you step on the gas. The only problem so far is an annoying rattle in the dash. Dealer says they charge for labor on rattles after 12k miles. Audi USA says it's covered under warranty. This is the only disappointment on the car. Stereo, Bluetooth are great. I love the dash. The white and red contrast is very sporty and lux.

My beauty is Moro Blue with beige interior. Options include premium pkg, technology pkg, sport pkg, vavona birch trim, Bose XM stereo. This is my second A4, the first was an Amulet Red 2002 1.8T w/manual shifter (I miss that color, wish it was still available). So Cal's stop and go traffic necessitated my first automatic in 27 years. Although I miss a manual at times, I love the CVT's seamless shifting. After 17 months of truly enjoyable driving, this car has been flawless and it seems to get better with each mile driven. The car adapts to your driving style and fits like a glove. I love passing those monster SUVs getting 12 mpg, while I'm averaging 35 mpg! This A4 is a great automobile.

I have the 2.0 Quattro with a 6 spd and every option offered at the time. This car is a lot of fun to drive and certainly has more than enough power. Rock solid in the curves, even at high speed. The new 2007 navigation update made some changes to the radio that I am not crazy about. My car has 15,000 miles and is still a great ride. Just traded it though on a 2007 2.0 cabriolet. I have had many Audi cars going back to 1974 and they get better all the time.

After months of comparison (IS 250, 3 series, MB C230, and G35), I finally settled on the A4, and have looked back with no regrets. This car is phenomenal to drive - it hugs off ramps and high speeds, the seats are supportive and comfortable on long trips, and the interior design is top notch. I purchased mine with a red exterior and a black / silver interior and it's eye catching! I also ordered mine with the sport suspension, which is great for windy road driving. The 4 cyl Turbo produces excellent HP. And for what you're getting in a car (entry level luxury sport), you're getting a lot more bang with your buck compared to the 3-series. I will come back to Audi for my next car.

I've loved my Audi since the day I picked it up. Build quality of the vehicle is amazing and the interior is top notch. The full time AWD system is great in any type of weather. It especially compliments the manual transmission providing little to not slip off the line. Engine is powerful and pulls like a v-6. Only thing I would change would be to order the S-Line sports package. You get the looks of the more expensive S4.

If there were a stability award for most stable convertible on the road, then the A4 cabriolet would win it! I loved driving my cabriolet, especially because I live in Florida. I had a couple problems with it, but other than that, it was perfect. I recommend this car for someone who is looking for a sports luxury compact convertible all in one, for a reasonable price.

The gas mileage is worse than a V8 Ford F150 loaded. Ford truck 19 mpg hgwy, Audi A4 16-17 mpg hgwy!! Don't by the CVT, you cannot accelerate smoothly from a stop, it hesitates and then BAM, it lunges, especially on a ramp in a parking structure or making a left turn, nice! You cannot use the center console because it interferes with the hand brake, lovely. The brakes chatter when slowing from ~50 mph, e.g. coming down an off-ramp from the freeway. Absolutely the worst car I've ever owned. Don't buy an Audi.

Wife wanted to downsize from SUV to a wagon. After test driving Subaru and Saab, I convinced her to ignore the price of the Audi A4 Avant 2.0T and test drive it. She loved it. While not much of a wagon fan, I have found I really like driving this semi-sporty little car. I love the sport shift, cornering ability (with 17 inch wheels/tires), and excellent suspension. The little 4 cyl has decent accel power - more than I anticipated. This is our first Audi and we really like it. Interior represents genius design.

I've never had a car with dimming side view mirrors, and I've got to say, that feature works so well. As for how the car drives, I've been driving my car for 8 months now, and recently drove a friend's civic. It's crazy how spoiled you be come when you drive an audi.

Have had a few electrical problems, but still love the car. Can't get it away from my wife! Back seat a little tight, but great trunk space.

I've had my A4 now just over a year and have put 22,000 miles on it; half of which were driving back and forth fom DC to NY in lousy winter weather. The car is so good, the only reason I will ever own another is if and when I splurge on an S4. I had heard mixed reviews about the last generation of A4s reliabilty. Well, I have not had a single problem. Handling, traction, steering and control are out of this world. I often travel and end up renting other cars; it's amazing how less secure I feel in them compared to the A4.

Last week, pulling into an intersection I was within three meters of being broad sided by a car running through the red light at high speed. I punched the gas pedal and the car's AWD gripped the road allowing the 2.0 Liter Turbo to haul me out of harms way, permitting the other car to screech around and behind mien Audi.

I had a 98 Passat with the 1.8T. After putting 165K miles on that car I knew the 2.0T would be a winner. I wasn't wrong. For all around handling, interior comfort, looks, luggage space and performance, you would be hard pressed to find a better value. The car is glued to the road and handles slippery weather. I chose this car based on these factors: MPG, all wheel drive, golf club fit sideways in trunk, safety, handling, fun, looks. No other AWD car has the balance of these and the price of the A4.

Handling is about as good as the BMW and I find the BMW more fun to drive. I prefer the interior and exterior styling more and the AWD is better in bad weather. Interior is a tad smaller but for the two of us the car is purrfect. My next car will be an Audi - probably with a 6 cylinder. Overall, the Audi is more.

First Audi, have to say it's been great thus far. Test drove both 3.2 and 2.0T, felt 2.0T had more of a kick at start off. Great fuel economy, and excellent overall build. MMI lacks ability to play MP3s, and does not have external audio plug for iPod/accessories. Rear seat lacks room, but this is a compact sedan. 6MT is decent, clutch has too much distance, lacks the short sport like feeling.

Best car ever owned

I previously owned an audi but this one takes the cake. I downgraded to a 2003 GTI 20th AE and owned that for 6 months, then realized I really didn't want FWD. I went from AWD to FWD and now back to AWD and I will never go back to anything less. The fact that my car is a lot faster than before and rides better than the VW and not to mention looks 100x better. The A4 is a great car for anyone looking for a luxury and sporty vehicle. I am still smiling everytime I drive my car, and you will too.

After test driving much of the competition, I test drove the Audi A4 Quattro and never looked back. The handling, interior luxury, and overall experience is unmatched by any of the others. While it may not have the name brand appeal of BMW/Mercedes, It is twice the car none-the-less. Audi = Attention to Detail!!! Audi just needs to Market more. Never even seen a commercial.

This is the second Audi purchased by my family. The first, an Audi A6 had major brake problems at 20k. We recently purchased a 2006 A4 with a S- Line package. It does have a nice look and ride but we have had major problems with it since the purchase. It has been in and out of the shop for several months with constant rattles, speakers not working, and a major problem with the front end. The car will randomly lock up when turning corners and there is a constant rattle from the the wheel being turned. This is a major dissapointment, because the vehicle is fun to drive and does perform well in poor driving conditions.

I drove my 3.2 V6 Quattro Audi through the open and windy highways of the rocky mountains of BC, Canada. What an experience! We felt secure and comfortable even with 4 adults and a full trunk. Engine just kept giving more and more power through the steep mountain passes while the Quattro kept us secure through the tight zigzag roads. At times, I lose track of my excessive speeds! Word to the wise, it is best to choose the 3.2 engine if you want the heavier Quattro models. This is the most well rounded car in its class. Large trunk, more rear seating space than BMW 3-series or Lexus IS 350, excellent price, superior engine, and excellent fit & finish.

I love the performance of this vehicle. The pickup reminds me of the small block muscle cars of the 60s.The interior is very ergonomically friendly with all the buttons easy to reach. The exterior has a stance that makes me feel like a lion among lambs on the road with an engine to back up my feelings when needed. I don't know why I didn't get an Audi before, but with today's advanced design, I'm glad I waited.

Overall, a very nice car. Powerful, solid frame, handles well. We have the technology package with bluetooth and memory seats, etc. We have enjoyed the car except for one feature: the adaptive headlights. These are Xenon headlights that move as the front wheels move. A neat idea, but we've had continuing problems with one headlight cutting off when it gets sufficiently dark for the "auto on" feature to work. Unfortunately, and despite a good effort, they have been unable to correct the problem and we are getting our money back through the state's Lemon Law. I would recommend the Audi A4, but not this adaptive light feature.

I have owned this car for 4 weeks, and put over 2000 miles on it. 1600 of those on a road trip up the California coast. We had a blast driving this car, and got lots of comments and looks from admirers. Its a sport car, handles very well, and is very fast. The steering is unbelievable. You can make a u turn almost anywhere. Another neat thing about Audi is you can modify your car as much as you want. There are many companies that specialize in custom upgrades. You at least need to test drive this car if you are considering it. It's a great car.

I got the S-Line package, and it really accentuates the handling of the car. It looks great on the outside, and the big wheels and sport suspension really makes the car handle well without riding rough. The interior is good looking and well laid out, and everything is made of nice materials. I also got the Bose package and it sounds pretty nice. Car is still breaking in, and mileage is getting better every day. Car is very quiet and refined on the highway, and is a lot of fun on a twisty road. I'm 6'3", and there's plenty of room for me, and theres still room for people in the back.

This car handles like no other car I've ever owned. I live in Alaska and I've driven it 400 miles in a blizzard with no traction problems whatsoever. For that reason alone, this Audi is worth every dollar I paid for it. It will go fast and then it will stop on a dime, even on glare ice. Amazing! The only problem I've had is that the engine coil was defective and had to be replaced during the first month (um, minor detail). I have read a lot of comments about the parking brake, cupholder, and armrest configuration. For me this has been only a minor inconvenience but it would be nicer not to have to move the armrest. All that notwithstanding, I love this car. It is so much fun to drive!

I got an A4 2.0T with a premium package in Red for my wife in March 06 as a replacement for her 93 Ford Escort which she loved and hated to give up. However, after a week in the A4 she stopped talking about her Ford. Her only problem with the car is getting me out of it so she can drive it. The dealer was excellent and I’m bringing it in for the first 5,000 service. This was our first Audi, but will not be our last.

I initially was in the market for a camry or TSX, but went to the Audi dealer on a whim. I love the way the car handles and the steering feel. It truly is a speed sensitive steering, unlike the BMW3, and easy to manuever. Great car for people of all ages. The car is a great blend of luxury and sportiness. Cannot express how much I love the steering wheel and steering ease in the parking lot. I drive a lot in stop and go traffic and the car handles flawlessly. I live in the harsh midwestern climate, and the quatrro definitely is fully utilized. Love my car, Attention Audi board/exec members, if you are reading this, please do not change the steering ease/speed senstive wheel.

I have always wanted an Audi and now I finally have one. And, so far it has not been a disappointment. For the last 12 years, I have driven only Acura Integras and RSXs. So, it was time for a change. Of course, it has only been a month but everything about the car says "cool car". And while I really do not care what others think, it is nice to hear people say lots of nice things about it.

This is a great driving car for a 2.0 litre turbo vehicle. I have an all road as well and both drive differently. The A4 S line drives like a sports car. After 2500 miles the car seems to get faster and more agile with every turn. I do get a lot of looks from audi owners because of the S line which makes it look like an S4.

Maybe it's too soon to offer this, but I'll do it anyway. Picked up the A4 2.0T this week. It's an amazingly comfortable car. The ride is very smooth, and the engine noise is almost pleasant. I've taken it pretty easy so far, but the one time I went for a little speed the car responded nicely. I got the nav system and the display is really nifty, but it's also a little distracting.

I bought this car for my daughter to drive in college at University Of Colorado. We live in Southern California and so my daughter is not an experienced driver on snow and ice. Since I grew up in the Midwest, I know the importance of traction. Since I pay for the gas, I also know the importance of mileage. With 8 air bags, all wheel drive, Audi reliability, and a 100,000 bumper to bumper warranty, all coupled with 22 mpg City and 30 mpg country this car was our top pick. I lost a nephew in an accident so safety is also important to me. I own 8 vehicles of 2000 or newer including an S500 Mercedes. The A4 Audi is the "best bang for the buck" of all of them. I love the car!

this is a really good car. the ride is unbelievably smooth and quiet, even over bumps. the sport suspension of the s-line package is great. the transmission is smooth during acceleration and engine noise is non- obtrusive. for the first few thousand miles the car seemed a bit jumpy at initial acceleration, but that has evened out... most likely a result of the car breaking in and getting used to driving it. the ride is responsive and fun, plus there are tons of cool features to be had.

As a gear head at heart I worked on many muscle cars (and subsequently drove them) but again WOW! Of all the options the A4 offers you have to get the S-line package. It's a total aggressive look, 18 inch tires, and sports suspension. Just one drive and you know where that extra dollars were well spent.

The build quality is first rate and so far (5300 miles) not one problem. Lots of positive comments on the appearance. Handling is wonderful and the power is surprising, especially from a four cylinder. I would highly recommend this car if a compact sedan suits your needs.

I've owned this car for just a few weeks and the handling is superb. The interior material are of top notch quality and the seats are very comfortable, though it's a little tight for adult back seat passengers for a long ride. For a four cylinder this car has plenty of pep, most six cylinders couldn't come close. The standard stereo has very decent sound, but I wish I opted for the premium Bose with satellite radio. That was my error. Adding the proper satellite tuner now to the satellite ready stereo is about $400.00.

The A4, while fun to drive, leaves some reservations. There is a noticeable hesitation when starting from zero. Consumer Reports mentions this. The 4-cyl. turbo, while powerful with a nice, occasionally pleasant burble, is, at times coarse. Also noticed by CR. The sound quality of the audio system is just good, not up to the sound in our '99 A6. But the comfort and convenience, the surprising torque, the sheer joy of taking turns faster than you really should while the A4 clings firmly to the asphalt is thrilling.

I used to drive a Passat V6 sedan FWD with auto transmission, and this Audi A4 is significantly better in all respects, but it should be - considering the 6 years and $10,000 list price difference. Haven't had any quality problems with the car, it feels very solid and dependable. The manual gearbox is a bit of a 'clunker', not exactly the quick light box I remember from a 3-series BMW. After 4000 miles it doesn't show much sign of easing up, and gear changes can be a bit rough. Also the steering is a bit heavy compared with a 3-series, but that could I guess be due to the Quattro 4WD? Overall, a very impressive car with a great engine. Goes well and sips fuel.

I absolutely love this car. The problem is that I've been towed in twice and I dont even have 10k miles on the car yet. My fuel pump went bad then I broke down again when a sensor on the pump was bad. Then I broke down on a business trip when I ran out of fuel on the interstate because their was a problem with the sending unit arm on the NEW fuel pump. When that replacement part arrived at the dealer it too was broken. I have no problems with Audi and their customer service. I just hope Audi can make this problem right and get my car running as anyone would expect a brand new audi to run.

The turbocharged 4 liter makes you feel like you are driving a larger and more powerful 6 cylinder engine. There truly is no need to pay for the 3.2 liter engine. The car has a beautiful exhaust note and is a blast to drive with the tiptronic. With the S-Line package you get paddle shifters which are a lot of fun. The S-Line comes with S-4 body stylings and badging along with beautiful 18 inch S Line rims wrapped in high quality summer performance rubber. The suspension is also tightened up. The interior is plenty comfortable and looks great.

Awesome car!

I have leased this car about two months ago. My previous car was an '03 accord. The Audi is a mojor step up in quality, handling, features, and refinement. I have the Quartz Gray Metallic with black interior... I get many compliments on the color combo.

The entire experience from the sales person to paperwork went smoothly. From the moment we drove the car off the lot, we knew we made the correct decision. Comparing the BMW 330 with our car, leaves us wondering why people are buying the other. From this moment on, we are going to own the Audi!

I just replaced my 2004 A4 1.8T fronttrack with a 2006 2.0T quattro. The car just feels better in every aspect. The quattro makes a huge difference. The 2.0T is a huge improvement over the 1.8T. i also have the S-Line sport package with summer tires. Only complaint from me is that Audi/VW will no longer offer XM radio as a factory option starting 2007 model year. Thats why I bought it now. Not a fan of Sirius at all.

Great car. 6 speed automatic transmission is a little quirky. But the sport transmission feature is fun to drive. Acceleration is excellent for a 4 cyl engine. Interior is very quiet, roomy and comfortable. I don't like the seat belt/door open/headlight alarm. Very annoying and rather loud. Brake dust is excessive. Other than that, I really enjoy every aspect of the car.

The interior is fantastic, it drives and handles really well (recently took it on a trip up the PCH to Monterey -- what a fun drive!), I really have no complaints, except for the Sat Nav and MMI system which can be a bit clunky sometimes.

My fouth A4 was a 2006 2.0T 6MT, my first 4 cylinder car in awhile. This machine was neck snapping quick and great fun to drive but the 4 cyl was a bit noisey and coarse for me. I traded it for the 3.26MT [crazy!]and prefer the smoother operation and sweeter engine and exhaust tones. Either is great fun and a relative bargain. For refinement try the 6 cyl. Saving cash the 2.0T is a blast and great on gas.

I enjoy cycling and skiing, and spend a lot of time on weekends driving to pursue my interests. Things that are very important to me are: good all weather capability, fun to drive, room for all my gear, and fuel economy. After exhausting myself with test drives and research, I narrowed the field down to BMW X5 3.0 and the A4. I went with the A4, and admit that it was a very tough decision. After a few months of ownership, the A4 has exceeded my expectations in all areas. Truly a great car, my first Audi, but not my last!

Drove all the others in the category (BMW,Mercedes, Acura). Although not the best in every category, the A4 is by far the most fun to drive. Adding the S-line and the 6M transmission make this car a pure pleasure. The tiptronic is best in class, but the 6M is for people who like to drive. My first Audi, but not my last. I can't imagine how they will improve on this car.

I love this car! it's a great combination of luxury and performance. With the seven speed auto transmission when you drive in the standard "D" position you can barely feel the car shift gears it's so smooth. Or you can put the shift into "S" mode and the transmission will hold the rpm's much longer, depending on how much you smash the excelorator, sometimes as high as 6,800 rpms. You can really feel the turbo then. Great acceleration. The car has a great stereo, standard with 10 speakers. Very nice interior with great instrument displays. Exterior styling is just unusual enough to get strangers to regularly comment on how they like the car. It has a slight hesitation from dead stop.

Just purchased my A4 and I love it. Driving in Sport mode is an absolute blast, the car takes off like a rocket. The fuel efficiency is pretty good so far too, which is a pleasant surprise. Everything on the car is tight and the ESP (electronic stability program or some such) keeps the car going straight. With the scheduled maintenance (first 50K miles) included in the car is a great value for the money.

I just traded in my 2005 A4 (old body style) for a new 2.0T fully loaded. Much better purchase. This thing flys, and handles so much better than my old 1.8T. The packages available deliver a much needed update to the technology in the cabin and out. I bought mine fully loaded (I guess I was desperate for features after the bland 2005) with the tech package, nav, bose, sirius... Everything works and it's quick to figure out. I love the new engine, it has pep, and is well balanced to a heavy body. Really fun around the sweeping esses, especially in bad weather with quattro! Buy one, it's worth it!

The 3.2 L V6 has everything you want in a luxury sport sedan and more. No question the bigger engine is worth it. And opt for the 6-speed manual-- the driving experience is pure pleasure. This car hands down beats the lexus IS 300 (I owned one) and with its Quattro engineering BMW 330 drivers have nothing over it. The interior and comfort only add to the driving experience.

This is my 4th Audi and 3rd with one of their great turbo-4's. It's also the first one I regret buying and wish I had considered a G35 or a 325 a bit more. The engine is peppy and efficient, handling is fun at normal speeds, quattro speaks for itself, and the interior materials are typical class-leading Audi. I also enjoy the tech package's fancy lights and bluetooth. My real complaint is the ride/handling. The sport suspension ride is unforgiving over most roads, yet it's easy to upset the car when you push it hard at speed. I'd skip that option. Honda nor BMW would put their name on that wobbly shifter. The armrest can't be down with e-brake up? That's a GM foible, not for an Audi.

If you want a car that gets noticed, is fun to drive, handles great, has a beautiful interior and just makes you feel good, then check out the new 2006 Audi A4. I have the 2.0T Quattro. The car is quick as a whip and the all wheel drive makes you feel glued to the road. Handles great in the rain and secure in snowy weather. All I can say is way to go Audi.

I swore to myself---after I graduated from college---that I'd never own another 4-cylinder car. I was driving my second Volvo, an S80 T6 when I ordered my 2005.5 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Sedan 6-speed. I did it because I worked for the Audi dealership at the time, and had grown tired of getting stuck in the snow with the Volvo (even with snow tires). I can honestly say that I have never loved a car as much as my new Audi. It is so much fun to drive... a 10 minute drive to the store ends up taking 40 minutes, as I have to sample every winding road in my new car. This car is a lease, so I'll have to be careful to not go over my mileage. Speaking of... I am getting almost 35 MPG highway/28 MPG city.

Last 2 cars were BMWs. The 528i was so elegant, but I saw my service advisor more than I saw my wife. The 330ci was awesome, but pricey. Looked at the new 325 which drives great but the interior & exterior design left me cold. Checked out the 2005 Audi A4 1.8T which was noisy and underpowered and was so pleasantly surprised when the new 2.0T came out. The 2.0T together with the 6 speed tiptronic is awesome. It is MUCH less expensive to lease than the 325, as much fun to drive, and you get more features like quattro and Bose. The black on black looks sharp and is very comfortable. The tiptronic is smooth and powerful. The car is fast and handles beautifully.

Just got the '06 A4 2.0 T and I am very impressed. The engine is smooth and responsive and with the 6 speed auto it is the perfect blend of fun and comfort. I am in North Dakota and we just got our first snow and it handles the snow very well with the all season tires, but the throttle takes some getting used to as it really picks up speed after about 2K RPM and it can cause the wheels to spin, but it effortlessly overtakes other vehicles on the snowy roads without any discomfort. The fit and finish is excellent and the stereo is great. Only complaint so far is the speaker grill in the driver door. The door closed on my leg and it broke the grill. Seems pretty weak.

Like it more each day.

I love this car. The first time I saw the front grill I thought it was the new A6. When I found out it was the A4, went right to the dealer and picked one up. cornering with this car and manipulating the brake assistant and other intelligent technology features makes the ride more fun than even my old 2004 C 230k. Example just try to turn driving and braking way too late; you will be amazed at what this car does! Also cornering at higher speeds than normal feels great but will speeding up feels even beter.

This is my first Audi I was going to buy a used 2000 A 4 After driving it for the day I went to the dealership and leased a new one. I own a G35, ES 300 and Maxima SE . This is by far the the most fun to drive. I added Electronics package and Ocean Blue Pearl paint (awesome). If you own a Bluetooth phone the Electronic package is a MUST! I think I would prefer a larger engine. I'm not crazy about the turbo around town but on the open road the car is a scream. Good thing it has a speed alarm! The six speed tip tronic transmission is sensational. Its brain automatically downshifts to first when you stop. The cruise control is the best I have ever used

My last car was a 318ti BMW, which was so much fun to drive, that I thought for sure I would buy another BMW. The RWD BMW was nearly impossible, though, in our Wisconsin winters, so I went in search of a performance car that could also handle snow and ice. Also, I was making the move from manual to automatic, reluctantly, worried I would lose out on performance. The Audi A4 Quattro was the perfect choice. The Tiptronic is the automatic option for those who'd rather drive a stick. AWD bites onto the road, even in slippery conditions. (I'll let you know when the snow hits.) Interior is beautiful: tan leather w/birch wood trim... I can't wait to drive to work everyday! Love this car!

Just a few hundred miles on my car, but I love this thing. This is my first Audi. Also looked at the IS, TL, G35 & 325i. Have been more of a BMW guy in the past, expected I'd like the 325 better, but after driving 325i, it was no comparison, not as refined. AWD is very nice in corners, perfect balance of comfort and sportiness w/o sport package, wonderful interior quality, and the outside looks are great (love that front end). High 20 MPG even with hard driving. My biggest gripe on the car is the rough idle which is on all 2.0T cars I test drove. Dealer says it's the direct injection. It would be nice for the auto shifter to look a little better, less "Passat." A/S tires lack performance.

I walked into the Audi dealership on a whim; up to that point I was looking primarily at the new 3-series, the G35 and the IS 250. Without question the A4 has the most functional, egonomically-pleasing and well put together interior in the class. In fact, the A4 feels like it is in a higher class than theother cars mentioned above (particularly the G35 and IS 250), which shows that brute force only goes so far. I test drove both the 2.0T and the 3.2. I went with the 2.0, which performs like most 6s and so far is averaging about 30 MPG (I commute approximately 70 miles total each day). If reliability holds up Audi has earned my repeat business.

Car has plenty of speed and pickup for a small engine due to the turbo. Handles well and provides a very comfortable ride. Smooth shifting and excellent braking. Interior is clean but don't choose the brushed aluminum; it sometimes reflects sunlight right into the eyes of the driver. A little narrow inside and wouldn't do well for very large drivers. Trunk space is adequate. Plenty of extras to go around. The new navigation system is fantastic with an incredibly good interface. Location of Nav DVD is behind the LCD instead of trunk. Changer is in glovebox, very easy to access. There are two smart card slots (wish it played more than just mp3s, maybe audiobooks as well). Fantastic value.

Having driven a Porsche Boxster S for four years, I did not think that I would enjoy the A4 as much. I am so glad that I am wrong. The A4 drives like a dream. It is comfortable and handles well. It is no slouch in the passing lane and performs just as well in the city as it does on the highway. The trunk is unusually roomy for a convertible. The styling and instrumentation is second to none. The fit and finish are superior. Even the basic Symphony sound system with nine speakers is more than adequate.

Excellent control and styling. Manual, Premium, Sports, Cold Weather, Sunroof, Tech packages. My first Audi, but not my last. Very clean interface and a pleasure to drive. If you're looking for a 0-60 straight line car this isn't it, but if you want to take a few turns after you hit 60 and above then this is your car. Took a road trip to WV just to drive some curves and the car was simply amazing. At low speeds (sub 40) it does well, but the car is in its element above 60. Test drove w/ & w/out sports suspension. Be warned it's very smooth w/out it, but you'll feel more of the road w/ it. Only worth getting the sports suspension if you plan on driving it hard, I'm glad I have it.

The price is just right, the amenities are perfect, for 35k you simply cannot do better. They say it's 7.1secs/0-60mph, but I would think its definitely in the high 6's. Its fast, extremely fun and sexy looking, that's the bottom line!

Tight and Slick

Great ride....excellent acceleration with the tiptronic. Tight handling and quick responsive shifting. Very comfy and slick redesign for the 06. Worth every penny.

My First (but not last) Audi

I had to choose between a 06 Infiniti G35 Coupe 6MT and an 06 Audi A4 6MT Q. I test drove both and fell in love with this car! Mine is a Black with Ebony interior, Premium package, Tech package with Bluetooth, S-line package, and a sunroof. Drive is very stimulating, handling is extremly responsive (the S-line is well worth it if you are not going to mod the car), power is plentful with lots of torque for a small engine. Brakes are adequate with great stopping power. The 2.0t has virtually no turbo lag. It feels as strong or stronger than the older models 3.0 V6 (but with much better fuel economy). Definitely get the Quattro. I live in San Diego and the twisties are amazing with AWD.

Very fun for a "station wagon"

What a great car! I gave up a '98 528i for the Avant... The ride is a bit stiffer than the 528i. Not a major problem.

Build quality is very good. I bought mine first and wife then bought a red one. The most fun part is the CVT, but after you own it, the CVT is also the hard part to enjoy. It is not a regular transmission, feels odd on initial start up. Gets excellent economy and is very fast with the Turbo.

Gotta love it

I obviously can't rate its reliability or build quality yet but I am loving this car inside and out. I had only 2 cars on my list an Acura TL and the 06 Lexus IS250 Awd(comes out 16 oct). Test drove the TL and really didnt get the "gotta have it feeling" well by chance I caught a glimpse of a ocean blue pearl A4 at the Audi dealer and decided to test drive.This was the longest test drive I ever took and had to have it. I actually waited 1 week as not buy on impulse but decided no need to wait for the Lexus if I love everything about this car. It feels so solid and smooth. The cabin is comfortable and beautifully laid out. I'm only 5'8 so no problems for me with driver side. We love our A4.

A Dramatic Improvement

This is my fourth Audi. I had a A4 Avant with the 2.8 V6, a A6 with the 2.8 and the A6 2.7T. The 2006 A4 2.0T is the best so far. I ordered it in Red with Tan interior with the Sport Package, Technology Package (Bluetooth Phone connection), Navigation, Bose Stereo (with XM Sat) and Xenon lights. The new 2.0T makes the V6 an uneccessary option. It has tremendous torque with little if any spool up and the 6 speed Tiptronic is flawless and fun to drive either fully auto or in manual mode. Great engine sound and terrific gas milage. I have been getting 22-24 around town and 30 MPG on the open road. The brakes are excellent with solid stopping power.

Amazing Auto

I'm an American living in Germany. The Autobahn is made for driving. The A4 is made for the Autobahns. Plenty of power, the new 2 litre turbo has more than enough power. Handling, when you get on the mountain passes, you really need it. Thats something that my SUV did not have. I would recommend this car to anyone.

This is my 4th A4. It is by far the best of the lot. Even though the engine only went from 1.8 to 2.0 liters, the performance seemed to increase by a much larger percentage. The acceleration is excellent. The change to the 6 speed transmission is a great feature. The upshifts are seamless and there are no discernible shifting lags. The GPS is easy to use and not difficult to learn. My last Audi A4 was good, this one IS GREAT.

Love this car!!

I've had so many people come up to me saying how much they love the looks of my car. I've been so happy with it. I love that it tells me when I need to bring it in for service, since I'm a complete "auto-illiterate."

This is my fourth Audi A4, and the best yet. 3.2 V6 very smooth and powerful yet still delivers about 28 mpg on the freeway. The car is so solid and well built I am extremelly pleased. I have not found a single flaw in workmanship, just totally amazed at build quality, details and fit. Best interior you will find at just about any price. Quattro, ESP (electronic stability program), EBD (electronic brake distribution) all make one feel very safe and comfortable in this vechicle. Expensive but I feel it is worth every penny. I highly recommend one. I especially like the smaller vechicle size. Audi is really doing their homework to make a great car even better.

Fun, fast car

It is a fun and very fast car. Very eye apealing and turns many heads on the road. Only down side is the turbo doesn't kick in till about 2,500 RPM's so it has a delay for a second in take off speed once you hit the gas. But as soon as the Turbo kicks in it makes up for it.

The A4 has grown up

I just traded in my 1999 1.8T (manual) A4 Avant for a 2006 2.0T with an automatic transmission. They feel like 2 different cars and I love them both. The 2006 feels more luxurious and adult-like, but it isn't a floaty car. I feel a tad more removed from the road in the new one but it handles like a dream. It is a blast to drive on twisty,hilly roads. It feels so solid too and the brakes are amazing. I hear the new A3 drives like my old A4. That makes sense.

This car is worth its price tag

When I went out to buy a car I had a acura TL in mind and not an audi. Both cars were equipped with same features but after driving both cars the audi just felt better. Although the acura had more horses, the 2.0T felt like it had more power at 200 probably because of awd. Overall the audi was easier and more fun to drive and worth its price tag.

Compared the BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Toyota for value. The Audi offers the greatest bang for our buck. With the top up you would not even know that you are in a convertible. Very quiet on the highway. Excellent backseat for our 5 and 6 year old. Other than turbo lag at the bottom end, she is an excellent performer.

I've had several A4's and this is the best on yet. The others were manual shift and I was concerned that there would be a performance loss with this car, but that's not the case. Like all Audi's this one is solid, designed well, and fun to drive. The tiptronic is simply amazing with three different shift options - sport mode does a great job of keeping the revs up, downshifting correctly - all in all, feeling just like a manual without the hassle of shifing. Everyone I know loves this car. I test drove a new 330i, and while the BMW does have a great motor, I'm not a fan of it's design - too overwrought and incongruent - hard to look at, inside and out.

Love it!

I test drove the 3.o but couldn't justify the extra 10k for the additonal power. The 1.8 is slow off the line but at about 30 you can feel the turbocharger spin up and it feels like a 6 cyl. The fit and finish are excellent and the Audi offers features that the Volvo, BMW and Saab didn't. I'm 6'2' and it fit's like a glove, although it has less leg room in the back than the Volvo. My wife and I (by rights it's her car) fight over it everyday... starting to feel like that commercial!
