2004 Audi A4 Wagon 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My Avant is the most fun, best handling
car I've ever had and that includes
a '78 911SC! It's also practical, I've
loaded a 32" TV into the back and
hauled bags of lawn supplies. To me
it's a more practical version of the
Mini.


Best Features

Handling, performance, durability, looks...


Worst Features

gear ratios could be tweaked...seems like there's a gap between 1st and 2nd on my 6 speed...more power...of course that's taken care of in the S4!

2004 Audi A4 Wagon 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

The A4 Quattro is the best perfoming
four season vehicle I have ever
driven. It handles like it is on
rails on twisty roads. It will never
slip in the snow.


Best Features

Best fit and finish.


Worst Features

don't change

2004 Audi A4 Wagon 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Wanted a versatile do-it-all vehicle (be
fun, sporty, stylish, and practical
(cargo and winter). Love the design and
features (though maybe not the
complexity and weight); still undecided
about the suspension tuning. I endlessly
debated the Sport Package but the stock
ride is as firm as I want day-to-day on
bad roads, and only in certain
situations have I wished that things
were more pulled-together. (I think
better AWD driving technique would
help!) The Avant?s position in space is
hard to judge now, but I?m sure I?ll
adjust to the dimensions and sightlines
over time. 2200 miles/6 months on the
car, no problems and no rattles/squeaks.


Best Features

Overall design and detail; engine growl on acceleration, otherwise quiet; firm but supple ride; responsive steering; firm seats like a block of potter's clay; thunk of closing doors and decklid; comprehensive safety gear; Bose/Sirius audio; Driver Information Display; low-beam pattern/color.


Worst Features

Shorten clutch pedal travel. Add another ignition switch position. Lengthen front-seat bottom cushion (and I'm only 5-8). Change black color of engine-oil dipstick tip. Design a hole-less front license-plate system. Make moonroof and xenons stand-alone options; offer factory-tinted glass.

Review

I am looking at $1500-2000 of repairs
to my gas tank,wheel lining and shock
absorber, not to mention the
replacement tire,which was $180,
because I had a flat tire on this
vehicle at 2389 miles. To my dismay,
neither the dealership, nor Audi of
America, will stand behind their
vehicle and cover any of this cost. I
apparently had a leaking gas tank for
several days before the "check engine"
light alerted me to a potential problem.
It would seem that the design of this
automobile should address the severe
damage that apparently can be caused on
this car from a flat tire. It makes me
concerned about my safety.


Best Features

I don't have any. I feel unsafe in the car and any pleasure I take in driving it is erased by this fact.


Worst Features

First, Audi should make their filler line and gas tank two parts, so it doesn't cost $800 to replace when any part of either is damaged. Secondly, they should get rid of "low profile tires". They blow when punctured with almost no warning. Third, they should stand behind their product.

Review

Car is easy to handle; seats are
cimfortable and firm; accelerates well
on expressway; Drivers controls are
easy reach; I have a problem with the
cup holder location, it is limited in
the size and height of cups it will
hold.


Best Features

Interior and Sunroof snd style of exterior


Worst Features

cup holder should be down under the center console to make it sturdier.
