2003 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I've had this car for over 3 years now. Had to get the windshield replaced in the first week: it had a defect that made everything look "wobbly." The fuel pump gave out at 1.5 years/30K miles, stranding me at 5 am (very frustrating!). I have since witnessed about 4 other identical models stranded in parking lots or on the freeway. Since the fuel pump, the car has not given me any problems, aside from strange electrical issues such as the mirrors rotating out of memorized position.
Exterior looks, interior build quality, Quattro handling in wet or snow conditions.
Power transfer during shifting with the automatic trans is very slow and mushy. If you want maximum excitement, get the manual trans!
