2002 Audi A4 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This car rocks! Handling, performance, utility, it has it all. 3.0 is much better than the 1.8 turbo with lag o'plenty. The A4 Avant is stylish and very well built, and Audi as a company does it right. Their maintenance program and professionals are top notch. Car is very high tech. They can program desired functionality within minutes at service, like auto door locking, windows pan-tilt when in reverse, etc. Love the memory seats and mirrors and dual climate control with heated seats.
All Wheel Drive (AWD) gives me tight turning radius and high-speed handling in the turns like nothing else.
Maybe better gas mileage, but with performance like this, that is going to take a small hit. They've really engineered this car well.
