Disappointed - Oil Consumption Nightmare
By jbgjresq on


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


Purchased car just off lease at approx 52K miles.
My wife is the primary driver doing a 14 mile RT work commute.
Car was always maintained by dealer while on lease.
Overall a great car to drive but (big but) the greatness is negated by the incredibly excessive oil consumption.
Right away I noticed the oil consumption issue.
Even after oil changes (always 100% synthetic) it uses approx 1 qt every ~400 miles.
Doing a quantitative test now down to the mile and pint.
I am so disappointed at this example of Audi german engineering.
In 40 years of car ownership, I have never seen this issue with any other properly maintained domestic or imported car or truck.
In a word - "disappointed"

Best Features

Handling Ergonomic cabin layout Sound system and satellite radio Comfort Best seat and wheel adjustment variety and range I have ever seen in car or truck. (The Shaq could comfortably fit in here.)

Worst Features

Big turbo lag from a dead stop - almost feels like engine has stalled. Inexplicable oil consumption issue. Absolutely no excuse for a well maintained german engineered vehicle in this class/price range to inexplicably use oil at this rate and, in this quantity.
