Review of the 2005 Audi A4

  • The A4 is luxurious, sporty, winterproof and a few grand cheaper than BMW's 3 Series. As such, it's one of our favorite entry-luxury cars.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Classy, well-constructed interiors, sharp handling, precise steering, available all-wheel drive, generous maintenance program.

  • Cons

    Engines short on low-end torque, sport package makes for a choppy ride.

  • What's New for 2005

    A4 sedans and wagons get new bi-xenon headlamps along with a new satellite/navigation/AM and FM radio antenna. Satellite radio (XM or Sirius) is now optional on the A4 Cabriolet. OnStar is no longer an available option. A substantially refreshed A4 debuts as a midyear release, and boasts new engines, an upgraded chassis and revised styling.

Disappointed of audi

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 3.0 quattro Special Ed. AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Loved my VW Golf build in Germany. My Audi, is a not a total disaster but fighting with Audi NA about quality issues. My headlights were a rain forest. Audi won't fix nor address this issue. I did my own fix to it. If you buy an Audi, make sure you find an independent shop that works on your car for about 40% to 60% less than an Audi dealer otherwise your are paying too much. I will not buy an Audi again. It is a super fun car to drive in rain and snow. This is not comparable to any other cars I ever had. Also, make sure you grease the wiper transmission, this is also an Audi quality issue. Make sure you get a Certified Pre-owned (CPO) if you buy a used Audi.
