2007 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Love this car. I bought it as a certified pre-owned - I've had it about 1 1/2 years now. Love driving it BUT about every 1000-1200 miles the oil light goes on and I have to constantly put oil in. I have never heard of such a thing before. AUDI tells me that is normal for this type of "high performance" vehicle. I think NOT -- - I still love the car but I don't think I would have bought it if I knew this.


Best Features

fun to drive


Worst Features

Fix the oil problem

Loved this car, until I realized it has a serious oil consumption problem which Audi has been dismissing for 2 years.

Review

Loved this car, enough that I purchased it off the lease after 3 years. Biggest mistake ever. I have been bringing it for oil consumption problems since Oct 2009 and been more than casually dismissed after wasting a lot of time and worry. Past 3 times I have burned more than a quart of oil after driving only 600-700 miles. Audi keeps giving me the run around (Fletcher Jones Audi Chicago has consistently given me the worst customer service of my life). They keep making me bring it back for oil consumption tests which have been repeatedly performed and telling me there is nothing wrong with it. I am at a loss and have written to Better Business Bureau and the Audi USA customer service.


Best Features

Appearance, drive.


Worst Features

Excessive oil consumption is a deal-breaker. Audi customer service has been the worst I have ever dealt with in any consumer arena.

2007 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Ok, here is the scoop - I love my 2007 Audi A4 Quatrrrrro ... fun to drive, great fuel economy and a definite head turner ... I bought is used with 50K miles August of 2010 - and I just got my check engine light January 2011. Initial symptoms were engine misfire (temp outside was -11 F ccooooold) ... so I took it to the dealer I bought it from and they had to replace some valve because of fault $257 later, it was deemed OK ... this happened after putting 10K miles ... and I was hoping to expect such events after 40K or so ... This is why I am a bit worried - what is going to go wrong again?


Best Features

Exterior lines are just awesome - beautifully designed driving machine ... the manual shift makes it a lot of fun to drive - add Sirius, iPod adopter ... then you have a car designed for long trips ... in MN winter that is ...


Worst Features

I had to do after market iPod adopter ... that should come installed by default ... It would also be great of the center driver/passenger arm rest is a bit wider ... it might be cool to share the arm rest with the wife but when driving with guests, it can be a bit unnerving ... the personal space that is ...

2007 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Tonight I'm reviewing 6 of my latest car purchases. Audi is getting the lowest marks. My car burned a Quart of oil every 3000 mi. Oil light would come on before it was time to get oil change. Evry time. Loved car before this happened. Recommended A4 cabby to a friend. His did the same thing. When in parking lots examine the carbon buildup on A4 tailpipes.having blown the engine on my previous 911 I was very sensitive to oil lights. I complained repeatedly to Audi who insisted that kind of oil loss was within specs. Seems like poor engineering. I always felt like a chump after speaking with service. I was so annoyed that I gave it back early to clear a space for a new BMW. Cont.


Best Features

I love Audi styling. They make many beautiful cars. The interior was very nicely appointed. Got good gas mileage. Initially I thought it was a very impressive car for the price point. It was a delightfully cheap lease, even. Got great gas mileage. Was responsive and fun to drive.


Worst Features

Great package except for oil burning. And also the casual disinterest from the service department about the issue. They did assure me that it was impossible for the car to lose enough oil to damage the engine. But you can't ignore an oil level light when it goes off in traffic. Also I was constantly getting soot on my pants while putting things in the trunk. I never owned a car that burnt oil, not even my very first beaters. So I was disappointed when my new Audi was the first. I have since considered Q7s and my wife really wants a new R8 but I always returnt to those within manufacturer's specifications. Good luck.

Review

I bought the car brand new after trading in my 325i. I love the Quattro, but I cant keep tires on it. Discount tire tells me that the alignment is always out. No matter where I take it, I still have problems. Pep Boys blames the tires and Discount blames Pep Boys. It's really frustrating. The car does have some Turbo lag but not all the time. It usally happens when you catch a stop light turning from red to green and you stomp on it. It doesn't happen all the time and I don't believe its dangerous like a few reviews state. The car is zippy and loves the highway. I cruise at 100 mph no problem through Arizona. I will sometimes put extra oil in it between changes, no reason to complain.


Best Features

Temp controls, red interior lighting, childrens red lamps in the rear.


Worst Features

fix the alignment problem so I can keep extra tire money in my pocket. I DONT HIT POTHOLES either.
