2004 Audi A4 Convertible 3.0 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great car, well made,
fantastic finish. Definitely fun to
drive. For drivers in the North East,
the combination of the AWD system and
the convertible are a great match. I
have owned a 98 528 and a 2001 E320,
and this car is on par with the fit and
finsih of the BMW and light years ahead
of the Mercedes. The only knock I have
is it is a little slow off the line but
once you are at 20 mph you are fine.
Gas mileage in general is fair but when
you are in the sports transmission mode
or drive it hard it poor, but I am sure
most people are not buying this for the
gas mileage....


Best Features

The design and ease of use of the convertible top is fantastic. The lines of the car and how the cars sits with the 5 spoke wheels...


Worst Features

Quicker off the line.

2004 Audi A4 Convertible 3.0 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I was skeptical that spending more
money provided you more substance.
The new A4 Cab. I purchased has
changed my mind. I purchased the car
with the 3L-AWD. The ride and
handling are exceptional. The car is
quiet and comfortable. I previously
owned Subaru Legacy with AWD and an
Alfa Romeo convertible. This car
blends the best of both these autos.
It has the precision, comfort, and
style of the Alfa with the common
sense of the Subaru AWD.


Best Features

The interior looks like a well finished sedan. The fuel economy is better then I expected. I liked the Alfa because it was a timeless look. I think the Audi aesthetics will hold up with time.


Worst Features

There are a good deal of electronic components on this car. All of these little motors and fiber optics increase the probability of reliability issues.

2004 Audi A4 Convertible 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Excessive mechanical problems early
(radio amp, roofliner, window closure,
power steering) fixed by dealer. Audi
extended warranty by 1 year for the
inconvenience.
No gears-strange initially, but a
dream later on. CVT is deliciously
smooth. Time the slight turbo lag, hit
the gas a split second early.
Computerized triptonic creates
6 “gears” to move through if you like.
Punch through corners, enjoy quiet at
speed. Power isn't extreme, but
solid. I recommend the upgraded stereo
and 17-inch rims, without sport
suspension. The car is tight enough
without it.

Not everyone will have this car, but
you don't want to be like everyone
else, do you...?


Best Features

Power top Trunk-integrated antennae CVT smoothness Turbo whine and power Gas mileage 4-seater Beautiful lines Quiet with top down, no wind battering


Worst Features

Stock stereo should be upgraded Wood trim should be available on 1.8T

2004 Audi A4 Convertible 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

The AUDI Convertible is just a very fun
automobile with it's sporty design and classy
appeal. The car is one of a kind, standing out
in the crowd and definately making a
statement that this is one automobile that is
strong is looks as well as performance,
german engineered. WAY to go AUDI!!


Best Features

The front grill is very large making the four circles stand out and showing it's elegange and sportiness. I put 18" rims on my car and blacked out the windows all the way around making this black on black AUDI a true celebrity car.


Worst Features

Definately improve the low end torque on the 1.8T engine. Lags even with the A/C off.
