by seattle a4 on Jun 18, 2007 Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
After 2 years driving, I've gotten a chance to reflect over the experience. First off, I would not buy an Audi. The A4 has shown me the entry level luxury field is somewhat of an oxymoron. And the A4 is one of the better entries in this market. The A4 is both luxurious as it is questionable in build. Those looking into buying a quality product should settle with the japanese offerings. At least then you would get a car that wouldn't be in Audi's wonderful service centers every week. 14 repairs in 2 years of ownership has kept me quite in the know about how cars work. The benefits of Audi products balance out some of the problems, but I would prefer driving my car daily, not a rental.

I've owned this car for 23 months and it's been in the shop getting repaired for over 2 months. Replaced the computer, fuel tank, burned out lights, coolant leaks, trunk latch broke, seat belt switch, fuel injectors leaking fuel everywhere. I'm tired of driving a rental car around. 7 times in the shop for repairs, costing me several hundred dollars from missing time at work to deal with these problems. Don't buy!!!!

This car is really great and I would recommend it to anyone. It has great acceleration. I love merging onto the highway beacuse I can always get in. It's really fun to drive and gets pretty decent gas mileage.
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.
