excellent design, reliability much worse than in the past

Vehicle
2009 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Review
Went from the 2003 A4 model to 2009 - old model was a real german design - tight handling, powerful, good brakes. The new one gained in dimensions - you feel inside like in a mid-size car, but the steering is too soft, I guess to appeal more to american drivers. Just one note - the car is not anymore a 100% german car - parts are made in other parts of the world and the overall quality has suffered. Have that in mind - repairs over the 4/50k warranty are very expensive both parts and labor - currently at 35k miles and thinking to trade-in.
Favorite Features
Excellent design inside and out
Suggested Improvements
Go back to the old steering; improve reliability - watch what happened to Volkwagen because of low reliability parts - protect your customer base here in NA - sorry to see especially the quality of engines going down - some burn as much as 1qt of oil every 2000 miles. The 2.0T engine has an excellent design but it is poorly manufactured.
