Why did the fuel pump go bad after only 120,000 miles?
The Acura we drive has 160,000 and the fuel pump is fine.
$700 to replace it.
I know it could be worse, but I think the reliability could be better.
If you are doing all the required maintenance perfectly nothing should break.

This is the best car I have owned; granted it is my first Audi. After 4 years, I still love driving this car. It has great pick-up, is excellent on snow (we also own a 4WD SUV and the AWD A4 is much better) and has been extremely reliable. It still looks like new and I still get compliments on the look of it (I like the exterior design more than today's model). I don't know what I'll do when it's time to replace it!

This review is on the 2005 3.0 A4 Quattro Sedan. I owned a previous generation A4 and this one blows it away. This B6 is larger in every way than the B5 model. I came out of a 03 Passat 4Motion into this and surprisingly the front and rear interior dimensions are almost identical. The only place you lose room in the A4 is the legroom in rear. (-2 inches) and the trunk. Hard to believe if you park them side by side. I think that is why this car is so fun to drive. It pushes the wheels to the edge of the car in each corner giving it great handling. The 3.0 has plenty of torque and acceleration while still avg. 23mpg w/ 50/50 hwy & city driving. Overall a great car and have had no issues
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.
Long story short, I have now moved on to the VW Passat 3.6 as it has all the options that I am interested in. While I was shopping around, I happened to run across the last 2005.5 Audi A4 quattro at ...
Finally, the A4 has all it needs to be the only total competitor to the 3 Series. It will have a sedan, coupe, wagon, and convertible plus a performance version (S4) like the BMW M3. The C Class, CTS,...
