Review of the 2004 Audi A4

  • The A4 is luxurious, sporty, winterproof and a few grand cheaper than BMW's 3 Series. As such, it's one of our favorite entry-luxury cars.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Classy, well-constructed interiors, sharp handling, precise steering, available CVT transmission and all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Price goes up quickly with options, engines short on low-end torque, sport package makes for a choppy ride.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Cabriolet is now available with all-wheel drive, while all A4s now come standard with a tire-pressure monitoring system, revised steering wheels and two-stage airbags. The 1.8T models have been upgraded with 16-inch aluminum wheels and now offer a six-speed manual transmission as an option.

2004 audi a4 3.0

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Pros: When running properly, the performance of this car is impressive. It was built for the Autobahn and is fun to drive fast, but we're not in Germany. Cons: I've had many mechanical and computer issues. Driver side electric window mechanism replaced, catalytic converter replaced, speakers go in and out on the front driver side, ignition coils replaced, uses a lot of oil, check engine light on more often than not. At <b>least<b/> a $1000 everytime I have to take it to the shop. The interior design isn't practical. The second cup holder is in the middle console but it's very cumbersome to access. I'm shopping for a new car and it won't be an Audi.




3.0 l a4 fwd cvt

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

I have found my A4 to be an outstanding car. I have been very satisfied with the comfort, reliability, styling and road handling capabilities of the 3 liter FWD. I have to admit the 1st gear off the line in auto sometimes hesitates but a simple fix if you need the get into traffic acceleration is to switch to select manual. There is negligable drop in RPM when in auto at gear changes - if you can feel it-pure acceleration. Fuel ecomony is fine - if you don't dog it and cruise sensibly - below 65 - I have gotten 30 mpg on the highway - 20 in town. The non turbo 3 liter is a great engine.




Right brain meets left brain

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

This car has probably the best combination of attributes among sports sedans that will appeal to both right-brained and left-brained people. For left brainers, there's the super- smooth, cutting-edge CVT transmission that doesn't sap engine power to achieve creamy smoothness (I previously drove sticks); absence of torque steer; superb handling and value versus BMW (I paid the same for this as I did for a 2001 BMW 325i with fewer options and smaller engine). For right- brainers,there's the clean exterior lines with an aesthetically superior interior design and quality of materials that can't be matched in any price class.

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

This car has the best interior quality and features compared to any other in the same class. Car is extreamly smooth and has a ton of power. Shift into sport gear and you will experience G force. You feel accelleration even with a slight touch of the gas pedal. It becomes an extention of you.




Pefect balance

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

The interior quality is 100% top notch, everything is thick and solid. 3.0 CVT has plenty of power, esp on the drive acceleration. Not too fast off the line but definitely gets you to 100mph pretty quickly. Didn't buy the car to race, instead bought it for all the little luxury features. Ride is bumpy with the sport package on LA streets. On other hand, the lowered suspension and 17" wheels makes the car look very sleek. Bose package is good, not great. 6 disc changer is well worth it but for the extra wattage I thought the stereo would have more kick. Overall, a perfect balance between good looks, great luxury features and solid performance handling.

Excellent vehicle. I keep coming back to Audi, my fifth one over the last 20 years. Never lets me down and can't beat the handling.

Since this is primarily a pricing discussion, you might have better luck posing your question in one of the other A4 discussions.....
