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.

Fun to drive at a

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4

I have now owned my 2004 audi a4 3.0L with ultrasport package for a bit over 4 years. This car is a blast to drive, and living in Minnesota, it is the best vehicle I have ever driven in the snow. Having said that I have been most definitely disappointed with the reliability. It seems every 4-6 months I have a major repair, not including the little things that I take care of myself. New tires every 1-2 years (15,000 miles/yr)Timing belt at 75,000, new radiator fan, new clutch and flywheel. I have spent $4000 in repairs on it this year alone. So beware and know that it may be cheaper than some, has great style, and is a lot of fun, but you may be better off with something more durable.

Great awd wagon

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4

Older couples' car with all documentation. Rides, looks and feels excellent. Great Bose stereo. Ultra sport package is awesome! Easy to forget this is a wagon. I traded in a 2008 Suzuki SX4 4 cyl AWD hatchback for this car. I wanted more power and luxury. Did some research and, an Avant 3.0 was the best bet. I really like the B6 (2002-05) generation of this car, Audi styling at its' epitome. Current generations (B7 & B8 late 2005-08, 2009-) A4s' styling is way out there, not my taste at all.

Very happy after ten months

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4

I had the benefit of reading a bunch of reviews before buying my 2004 Audi A4 Avant, so I figured that I'd add my two cents to the mix. The Audi wasn't initially on my radar screen. I was looking to spend $20,000 on a used wagon that could handle snow (which my BMW 528E could not). I was taken by the Passat Wagon, drove it, then almost sprung for a new one, but I got spooked by the aggressive discounting by local dealers, which usually means bad resale value in a few years. Then I looked closely at the Saab 9-5, BMW 3-Series, and Audi A4 wagons. Considering handling, comfort, volume, price, re-sale, the Audi blew me away. Now ten months later, I can further confirm that this is a great car.

Ultra-sport avant ultra-fun!

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4

Just looking at the car makes me grin ear to ear. Great lines and inside it just continues, leather, feel-good dash, excellent sound system. Fast enough and brakes that actually do there job. Drove from Chicago to New Jersey with the wife and our two dogs. Fold-down rear seats with built-in dog screen, the tops! I have become an Audi enthusiast! The dealership was top notch along with the salesman. The service incredible.




Fun, fun, fun...

My Avant is the most fun, best handling car I've ever had and that includes a '78 911SC! It's also practical, I've loaded a 32" TV into the back and hauled bags of lawn supplies. To me it's a more practical version of the Mini.




Suv meets sports car

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A4

The A4 Quattro is the best perfoming four season vehicle I have ever driven. It handles like it is on rails on twisty roads. It will never slip in the snow.
