2009 Audi A4 Sedan 3.2 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Like probably most people, I looked at the BMW 3, Benz C, Acura TL, and Infiniti G37 before finally settling on the A4. I wanted first and foremost a car that was fun to drive both on the daily commute and weekend trip. I also wanted a car that stood out. Unfortunately, it seems that everyone in this segment naturally gravitates towards the 3, usually because that is all they have heard of. What I found in the A4 is a car that gives me all the performance with real handsome looks both inside and out (yes, I am a sucker for those LED head lights). The car is incredible to drive, especially in Sports mode. While I miss the torque of the 2.0T, the 3.2 is the one to have.


Best Features

Performance of the 3.2L engine, nimble handling, imperceptible gear shifts, turning radius, exterior styling, interior build quality, not the standard go to luxury sports sedan, trunk space, comfortable ride both when cruising and when truly driving


Worst Features

Fuel economy (even with 3.2L should be better), a little more torque, the BMW 3 definitely has better brakes, what is with the mini cup holders, and the standard audio is not up to par with the performance of the rest of the car.

2009 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I love everything about the car. It runs great, the Prestige package has everything anyone could want at a great price, and the car's styling is superb. The only down side to the car is that it burns 5 quarts of oil between oil changes, as was confirmed by a recent oil consumption test at the dealership. This is kind of an annoyance for a vehicle that stickers for over $40,000 new.


Best Features

LED lights, styling, fun to drive

2009 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Worst decision of my car buying life. It was the only 2009 left on the lot and had every conceivable option. Problems arose quickly - 1. The steering feels like something is rubbing or a belt it loose - back to dealership 3 times before I was told that there was a service bulletin out on it and no fix yet. 2 Transmission lurches in the dynamic mode - after 3 visits was told that there was a service bulletin out on it and there was no fix yet. Filled out more than one survey on it and never received help. For an almost $50K car, this is a disgrace. Have written Audi many times to just give me my money back. How do you think that is going. Bad mistake.

2009 Audi A4 Sedan 3.2 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Retiring the 3.2 liter and making the 3.0T only available as a hopped up S goes down as one of the biggest mistakes Audi ever made. I commute to Boston daily 20 miles each way that takes anywhere from 25 minutes to 90 minutes. Sitting in traffic, slow easy driving it's a dream. Drives on a cloud like the old Cadillacs i grew up driving (but smaller!). Hit the accelerator though and the wolf comes out. This car jumps and the power just seems to keep coming. Tested this against the new A6 3.0T (too big and disconnected from the road), G37 (surprisingly nice car but too many of them on the road), BMW - lacks the lady-like good nature of the Audi


Best Features

Headlights, trip computer. Mileage on highway is 30+ during sustained 70 mph driving


Worst Features

Adaptive transmission takes some getting used to. Bring back the 3.0T as a Prestige option, tuned the same as the A6

2009 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I own a 2009 A4 2.0T FSI Quattro Prestige S-Line. What an amazing and fun car to drive! Pros: Performance: responsive, good handling, grips the road and can make tight corners, 0-60 in 6.7 sec as advertised, smooth ride even with sport suspensions. Styling: beautifully done interior, exterior styling is amazing with nice flowing lines, still loving the LED lights after 26K. Reliability: reliable, no maintenance issues at all, all in all, a great car! Other: B&F audio is a must! 31 mpg highway Cons: Stock tires are noisy at high speeds above 60 mph -Torque steer issues that Audi has no fix for still. MMI interface does not support other languages -18 mpg city -Slow start off the line


Best Features

Exterior and interior styling Engine performance and acceleration Handling Bang & Olufsen sound system


Worst Features

Torque steer fix MMI multi-language support/software update Need better stock tires! LED tail light upgrade for '09 vehicles
