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.
