Good looking, very fast and handles like a dream. Definitely a fun to drive car. In terms of reliability, this is the worse car I've ever owned. I have to take it to the dealer while it was under warranty at least twice. The oil filter housing (made out of plastic) broke during an oil change and it took nearly a week to receive a new one, which was over a $100. The last moth I had it, it threw "check engine" lights for three different issues. For the last one the dealer wanted over $1000 to repair it. I had them clear the light, drove it to the nearest Honda dealership, traded it in, and never looked back... for 61,000 miles, I'm disappointed.
Awesome looks. The 2.0T provides plenty of power and the suspension makes the car handle beautifully.
interior trim needs to have a different finish. The plastic had a rubbery film which started to peel within the first 30,000 miles.
Not a very reliable car, too many problems at 61,000 miles.
You need special tool just to change the oil! Make this thing more DIY friendly!
different/better German engineers!
2006 Audi A4 2.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Initially, I was very happy with my purchase of the Audi A4. With it's AWD, it was the perfect choice for driving in Wisconsin winters. However, four years into my purchase, I am very disappointed because of the shoddy wear of the interior. The glove box has fallen off, and from what I read in Audi forums, this is fairly common and Audi charges big bucks to fix this defect. The leather of the drivers seat has developed cracks. And the hinge on the center console has stopped working. I previously owned a BMW 318ti for 10 years. Year ten, the interior was just as good as the day I purchased it. For the money, I was expecting the same quality. Audi does not deliver. I will return to BMW.
AWD works wonderfully. It's like having an SUV, but with the looks of a sedan.
Interior is poor quality and shoddy workmanship. Leather seats crack, glove box door falls off, hinges don't hold up, wood finish cracks. Not acceptable for luxury vehicle.
Amazing car! I have owned Mercedes, BMW and now Audi! And I want to say German' cars are the best! And also I want to say to everybody: the Germans car need more care than others! If you not care about your car, you will get a lot of problems! So stop writing bad reviews! Check oil level on every fueling, don't drive you car after starting the engine first time in the morning, wait couple minuets, don't kill engine, and you never get a problems!
I really love this car. If you read these people's reviews with their broken down audis, you must understand if you don't take care of your car it will break especially used ones. I get 23 mpg very very low maintenance on the car I couldn't be happier.
