2007 Audi A4 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
Sure, it burns a quart of oil every 3-4,000 miles, but you only have to change oil every 10,000 miles so you're still ahead. There is a lag with the turbo, but it really goes away when driving in "sport" mode, which I always do (VERY peppy, and still get 23mpg). I've had one small mechanical bug (rear window with a mind of it's own) but my dealer (Rusnak, Westlake Village, CA) has been exceptional to work with. I'd love to trade it someday for an A5 cab, but at my age, they might end up burying me in this car!
Styling, finish quality, sporty
Weak sounding engine at idle, would prefer an exhaust sound like my G-35 had!
