2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

This car looks great and drives even better. It has comfortable seats and the engine runs very smoothly. The A4 convertible is a cross between a sports car and a luxury car and it clearly has good features of both. While there is always room for improvement, I am very pleased with how it handles and the multitude of features.


Favorite Features

Overall interior and exterior design is very sleek. Has many extra features that other convertible sport cars do not have, especially the AWD system which will come in handy in the winter.


Suggested Improvements

Make the convertible button a one-push system and place it on the center console. Make the opening to the iPOD interface larger for easier accessibility and make a playlist available. Better city fuel mpg.

2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

My 2008 Audi A4 Quattro burns oil at a rate of 1 quart per 1000 miles. The oil level warning came on at 6000, 10000 and 14000 miles. Each time I had it checked at the dealer where it was purchased and was told each time that no leaks were found and that it was operating normally. They also measured the aforementioned burn off rate according Audi guidelines and informed me that it was "well within Audi specifications and no action is required." These engines are problematic and Audi knows it.


Favorite Features

All wheel drive


Suggested Improvements

Remedy oil consumption problem

2008 Audi A4 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Really pleased with my lease of this car after one year. Only one issue with a brake light sensor after 1 year of ownership and the dealer fixed it right away. Highway mileage is fantastic, but pure city driving gives poorer than I hoped. But overall, power and handling are the best! This is the funnest car I've ever driven. Trunk space the best of all convertibles I tested.


Favorite Features

Highway mileage over 30 MPG. Comfort & support of seats. Bluetooth phone is as clear as a regular phone.


Suggested Improvements

Move the control for convertible top located under the center console, also make it one touch. Better city MPG. Needs memory seats.

2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I started out gunning for a Saturn VUE. But it does not come with a moon roof so I tried on the Audi A4 quatro for size - performance - finish. It does not disappoint. My first reaction to driving it: A little noisy. Initially reminded me of a diesel - albeit a fairly quiet one. The noise level is most noticeable when first accelerating. Once under way the noise level recedes and is forgotten. Finish & performance wins raves. Safety features - brakes - road stability - guages placement underscore diligent design engineering. This car gives you the feeling it was designed by engineers who like driving cars. Cars that envelope you in comfort; safety. Road stability is totally reassuring.


Favorite Features

This car's electronics bedazzle! All fluid levels are checked. Outside temp noted. Fuel level is displayed & future miles are extrapolated; after factoring in your current speed. Dirty disc brakes? Hit the windshiled washer - it also washes your discs - plus your headlight covers. Locking gas cap!

2008 Audi A4 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

I am an america living in Germany and have really been able to push this car to its limits. For a four cylinder this car moves, There is a significant lag in the turbo when not in the "S" setting (S-lines) At 140 miles an hour for 40 miles I averaged about 19 MPG and same road at 70MPH 33.6 MPG.


Favorite Features

"S" setting for S-line tip-tonic xmsn's. beautiful leather all over.


Suggested Improvements

The air hose from scoop to box has no real connection and just slips together doesnt take much of a bounce to disconnect. Trunk opening not tall enough to slide in most coolers.
