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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Power fold in mirrors, moon roof, fold down rear seats, black leather and wood trim, 17" wheels and tires.


Suggested Improvements

Improve rear visibility or maybe add reversing sensors. No complaints about cup holders...don't really know what the big deal is?

2004 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I love this car. It's sporty, yet has enough room to carry stuff and people. I recommend it to everyone.


Suggested Improvements

Runs out of windshield wiper fluid after about 7,000 miles. Could be better.

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


Review

have it for 6 months, its been in the shop for 2,vw/audi doesnt have parts! upon any problems u will wait a month for parts,& very lucky to receive a courtesy car..the sport suspension is horrible! believe me,i drove benz bmw & lexus, this suspension is horrible, u might as well throw a horse in the front and call it a day..the pickup is a nightmare but the car glides at 85..i wish i can say, get this car, but dont!i have every option on the car & the only good thing about this car is the bose system..good luck..oh yea the low profile tires look nice, but i was slippin and sliding on the snow which i didnt expect from a quattro ..gonna need winter tires!


Favorite Features

bose system


Suggested Improvements

no power... no parts... suspension too tight and makes for a very uncomfy ride while not improving handling compared to no sport suspension

2004 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Bought the Ultrasport as it was a knock- out sitting on the showroom floor. The visual difference between the Ultra and the stock car is so vast, the additional dollars don't seem to matter. You know you've got a great looking car when valet's comment on it and people ask about it at the car wash. The car is a hoot to drive, and is very responsive. The Quattro system, while adding weight, certainly picks up the slack in curves or slick roads. Audi could kick up the HP and I wouldn't mind, in fact, that is all I would ask for at this point, 20 or 30 more horses. The engine itself is great fun, with more personality than the 3.0. I love this car.


Favorite Features

A body that draws more stares than a super-model. Loves to run hard. I was a grandma driver until I bought this vehicle. Beautiful interior. Just- right size. Did I say it was goodlooking?


Suggested Improvements

More horses. More factory authorized performance bits.
