2005 Audi A4 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I love nearly everything about by 2005 Audi A4 Avant. Although I've only driven it 5000 miles so far, I haven't had a single problem with it and the fun-to-drive factor is nearly off the scale. One quibble: I find the red numerals in the dash display hard to read. I'd vote for green instead. I'm averaging about 21 mpg around town -- not bad for a 255hp V-6. One caution: even in the Avant (wagon) version, cargo space is limited. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) I give the Audi A4 Avant quattro 3.0 a 9.5.
Quiet, comfortable ride, great roadholding (especially in corners). The XM satellite radio is a great option, especially on long trips.
Stretch the wheelbase a little to add rear seat and cargo room. Get rid of the red numbers in the dash display; too hard to read.
