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


Review

There is much to praise about this car. Few cars at any price can match the elegance of its interior design. The 6-speed is snick-snick smooth. But this car is much better suited for short urban trips than long-distance highway cuising. Front seats are far too hard and not very supportive unless you're smaller than average. Road noise is intrusive, especially on rough road surfaces. HVAC is drafty unless regulated manually.


Best Features

The revamped 6-speed shifter is first rate. The Bose XM radio is worth every penny.


Worst Features

Install sport seats that are both more supportive and comfortable -- like those in the Volvo S60R. Install better sound proofing. Revise the spring rates and shock valving to provide better more supple ride on bad road surfaces. Currently, there is too much spring and not enough shock.

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


Review

The more I drive it, the more I love it. The 4 cylinder engine is terrific, I've put it through so much abuse yet after 17,000 miles absolutely nothing has gone wrong. Everyone who has been inside the car has enjoyed its comfort and the ambiance created by the red dashboard lighting. Thus far I have not heard a bad comment about any of the cars features. Ride comfort at all speeds and any road is imaculate, even with the sport suspension. Audi has done a terrific job when they created this car, they had "driver friendly" & "passenger comfort" during the crafting process. I will definately be a repeat buyer


Best Features

Driver friendly instrument cluster & dash panel. Amazing seats. Awesome sport suspension.


Worst Features

Absolutely NONE

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


Review

There is NO other car with interiors to match Audi's quality and design. This was a huge factor in picking it over competition. 10 out of 10! Exterior is outstanding as well. I get tons of compliments, and this is a station wagon! Very modern, organic design that'll hold up over time.Car is quiet as a lexus, even at 80+mph. Smooth ride, good brakes. Performance is good. Of course it could use more power. Very well balanced in corners for such a heavy car. Quattro makes it fun in snow and rain. Cargo area is very usefull.Hauled 27 retaining wall blocks home from Home Depot with not problems. Great soundsystem, excellent controls and guages.


Best Features

Stereo, Quattro All Wheel Drive, Cargo room, Controls and Guages. Styling, Am I missing anything!?


Worst Features

More power. (this is coming in 05) Tighter sport package. (S4 is much stiffer but 54grand! Upgrade brakes. 1.8T was not adequate. 3.0 better, but not world class
