The driver's experience is clearly what the engineers had in mind when designing this car. The engine delivery and transmission shifts are silky smooth. The turbo layout turns a usually puny 1.8 litre 4 banger into a fun and almost organic feeling torquey little animal! Audi has designed the drivetrain well. The interior and exterior both have the same concept in mind. Clean and sexy lookin. Some of my friends chuckle at me getting the wagon but I love it. It's just way to versitile to pass up. I play hockey and have a Big German Shepherd. I need the space. The other day I had three big dogs in the back and they all had room to lie down and relax on our trip.

Aside from having defective Spark
Modules which required two separate
service visits (one with only 63 miles
on the car) and a failed Transmission
Control Module, this car has been 100%
reliable and an absolute joy to own and
drive. I can't understand why there
aren't more of them on the road, it's a
great Anti-SUV! With my snow tires on
in winter I run circles around any of
them and get WAY better gas mileage,
too. The car is also perfect for long
trips, just eats up the miles in
comfort and returns 25MPG at 75MPH!
Again, no SUV can touch that.

My wife and I bought this car a month
ago, and we love it already. You rarely
see A4 Avants, unlike the ubiquitous
BMW/Volvo/VW wagons. It's also a superb
value, especially Certified. I laugh at
SUV drivers who paid a lot more for
terrible handling, fuel economy, and in
some cases, less room. It will not
overwhelm you with power, but it's got
plenty of zip for a family car, and
Quattro ensures excellent handling.
It's not big, but it's very
comfortable. The interior lighting is
great- at night, EVERY control lights
up so you don't have to fumble in the
dark. Its a really intelligently
designed car with great attention to
detail. Very highly recommended!
Audi's entry-level sedan and wagon are all new for 2002. Along with a redesigned body structure and new sheet metal, the new A4 receives a variety of changes to make it sportier. It is motivated by either a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged four or a completely new 3.0-liter 220-horsepower V6, which can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Making its debut this year for non-quattro models is a continuously variable transmission (CVT), also known as multitronic. An in-dash six-disc CD changer and a dual-zone auto climate control top the standard features list.
