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.

The audi a4

by on
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.




Buyers beware!!

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

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!!!!




Great car

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.




Love my audi

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

It reminds me a lot of the 1980 VW Scirocco with 14 pound callaway turbo I had in high school. It's amazingly fun to drive and handles great for the price. I highly recommend it.




The most fun luxury entry

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Having driven all of the competitors, the Audi A4 2.0T Quattro was by far my easiest choice to date. Awesome driving dynamics and comfort combined make it the most fun to drive. She's been through 100 Mph, 100 mile non-stop drives at 107F and a 70 Mph drive through a raging mid-west blizzard -- couldn't tell the difference. Combine this with top-notch reliability -- never had a single issue with her in a year now.




Great car

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

I now have three months of experience with this car and find no faults. Interior is great. Exterior is great. Mechanicals and dynamics are outstanding. Bose and XM sattelite sound system is excellent. Zero defects at delivery. High gas mileage on my one long trip - nearly 30mpg at 75-80mph. Welcome step up from a 2001.5 GLX, 5MT VW Passat that I thought was going to be hard to beat.
