I traded DOWN from a '96 A4 a few years
ago when a second baby made me
unconfortable with the high payments. I
saved a lot of money and got
essentially the same car. Not quite as
sexy on the outside but a solid, well-
performing german sports sedan. Clean,
crips lines like a well-tailored gray
flannel suit. Fast, if not quick.
Unimpeachable 5-speed transmission,
smooth clutch. Very reliable except for
some minor electrical issues.
Comfortable, if a little cramped for
most Americans. Tenacious grip in all
Quattro AWD. Heated seats and ski sack
for winter fun.
