2005 Audi A4 Convertible 3.0 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Drives great, lost of fun to drive with the top down. Looks great in black with tan interior. Small leg room in the back seat, but still comfortable.

2005 Audi A4 Convertible 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

After examining all of the top marquees the Audi A4 was the big winner for topless driving. IMHO it represents the best performance, style, quality, and value for topless luxury/performance driving in the four- seat category. And our dealer treated us like royalty when others thought the A4 1.8T price level was not worth their effort. If you are considering topless driving give the A4 a serious look. Test with & w/o sport suspension. Not for everyone but great for me. Love the handling, lighting, interior, and wonderful aesthetics. Top is awesome and down 90% of the time.


Best Features

Sports package, lighting package, leather interior, fantastic seats, awesome top, and excellent stereo with CD & cassette. Performance and fuel economy in one head-turning package.


Worst Features

This car needs better brakes. The sports package has larger wheels and could use larger rotors with ease. If you really stand on the brakes they work fine but better/larger brakes with faster recovery would be nice. A better cup holder arrangement is needed. Maybe pop-up like the MB.

2005 Audi A4 Convertible 3.0 Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

The car is as fun to drive today as it was in Nov 02 when I purchased the car. I took a chance with a new model but it has worked out well. The cabin is a driver's cabin, and with all the safety features I feel safe even with the top down cruising on challenging roads. As other reviewers have noted the ride is choppy going over speed bumps at slow speeds but other than that the car does not disappoint and provides me with an excellent experience.


Best Features

Memory for seat and mirror position, convertible top w/boot, Bose stereo, Interior fit and finish, luxurious, effortless power


Worst Features

speed bump handling, iPod connectivity

2005 Audi A4 Convertible 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Have had my newest love for two months and 4,000 miles. Single touch up/down top with glass back window and a covered boot is superior. Stock sound system is as good as BMW's Harmon Kardon. This is a sloooow car. Replaced my 2002 Honda S2000 which was fast but a bit hard on the body. Compares more than favorably to my 1999 323 BMW convertible with one exception.


Best Features

Lined top with glass rear window,CVT transmission,comfortable seating, fun computer.


Worst Features

More low end speed.

Review

I replaced my Miata with the A4 convertible. Not just a step up, but 100 steps up! I compared it with the BMW 300 serier and the Mercedes. No comparison for me. The creature features are over the top on the A4. I want luxury inside with a luxury exterior & price & ride = you don't all that with the BMW or Mercedes. The interior is beautiful & functional & comfortable. Can you tell I love it!


Best Features

Ride, interior luxury, solidness, handling,head-turning, satellite radio, quietness with top up or down.


Worst Features

Change the heating/AC controls.
