2004 Audi A4 Sedan 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I am second generation Audi owner. I strongly doubt I would buy another. The reliability and resale value is poor at best.In addition I have had problem with power steering, been to two dealers, had it changed twice and still have problem. It could use a little more power as well.


Best Features

four wheel drive


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

Review

I'm very disappointed with the resale value of this car. My BMW had much better resale value.

Review

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


Worst Features

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

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!


Best Features

bose system


Worst Features

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