2003 Audi A4 Wagon 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

When we got the A4 avant for my wife a
year ago,we knew the car was a
beauty,and we suspected great built
quality,and we got it.
What we did not know is that the
1.8turbo matched to the 5 speed auto
is almost slow,noisy at high rpms,and
very thirsty for so few inches.
Why offer this combo to such
unsuspecting public?I know the torque
is excellent and that there is almost
no turbo lag,but pleeeeaaase, at 37
grands out the door,we deserve better
performance!.
Apart from that,it is very
comfortable,handles beautifully, and a
very pleasant place to spend time
in ,unless you are going up a
slope,fully loaded,with the dog in the
back.

2003 Audi A4 Wagon 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After about 1500 mi of mixed driving I
find that I am still getting acclimated
to this car. I special ordered to avoid
the sunroof and had to wait 4 months for
the car. Fit and finish are first rate,
handling is excellent, gas mileage is
about what I expected, which is to say
mediocre so far. My two significant
complaints center on the radio which has
absolutely horrible AM reception, and
the back end which doesn't fit my golf
clubs(my bad for not checking).


Best Features

Fun to drive. Will be great in the snow.


Worst Features

I would like cloth seats. The console le and my right leg want to occupy the same space. The car should be lighter and wider. The stereo/ac controls could be better arranged and more easily accessible. Also, a secondary sun visor should be standard.

Review

Owning this car has been a thrill! Been
able to move everything from furniture
to friends in a sports like fashion.
Owned a Focus wagon before as the work
car, for home improvements an regular
work because of supposed gas milage.
WHAT A JOKE! Never better than 18
city/27highway now I get with a true
vechile 22city/30highway with the
advantages of safety, fun and
reliablity.


Best Features

Great standard stereo system w/6 disc CD and cassette deck backed by 10 wonderful speakers. Standard Quattro system that make car stabile and safe in all round weather conditions. A lot of car for the money.


Worst Features

Few more horses but with about same milage and slightly less sensitive tranny system.

Review

The fit and finish of this vehicle is
amazing. If you want to know what I
mean, check out the door jams between
the Audi A4 Avant and the Volvo V40 the
next time you are at a car show. The
paint is perfect. We already have one
tiny nick and can see the undercoating -
no bare metal. So the metal is very
well protected.


Best Features

From the first test drive, the dimensions of the car were easily determined & the handling around curves/turns was smooth & easy. Interior design & instrument panel layout is crisp. Bose sound system with Audio Pilot feature (www.Bose.com) is a delight to listen to news or music.


Worst Features

This is my first turbo & it takes time to get used to it. The engine lags (heavy car for this size engine) and then the turbo kicks in. It is also averaging 21 mpg (CA emissions), with two light-footed drivers. The car is rated 28/20 mpg. Does anyone get anywhere near 28 mpg?

Review

We chose the A4 Avant because we needed
more space than a compact sports sedan,
but didn't want to drive a brick-like
SUV. Boy has the Audi delivered. It
is a joy to drive, with smooth
accelration and endless road-holding.
In addition to holding the asphalt, the
car holds more cargo in the boot than
you could ever imagine for a car of its
size. The interior is quiet, and every
control is easy to use and within a
finger's reach. Everything about the
car feels rock solid. Audi engineers
have thought of everything, the result
is the car contnues to reward hard
driving and daily commuting.


Best Features

Silky smooth Automatic Trans, Easy- revving turbocharged engine, Quattro, Fit and Finish, 6-disc CD changer, xenon headlights, great ergonomics and fit and finish


Worst Features

I would love another inch of rear leg room, but other than that, I have no complaints.
