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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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...?


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

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!!


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

Great car love the handling. It's fun to take a 40-50 mph turn on a city block without fishtailing. Only bad comment, you have to keep reminding friends to close the doors gently. The doors are light and close with little effort. So people tend to always slam them..followed by "sorry"


Favorite Features

Finally a seat a back sufferer can enjoy. Great lumbar. The heated portion not only heats your ass but your back. A stereo worthy of a CD. Huge glove box.


Suggested Improvements

wish list: lower door height so arm can hang out window more comfortably. Ditch the XM radio for an MP3 or Ipod option. Improve blind spot area.
