Poor Choice,Beware Audi has lots of work to do still

2009 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I bought a brand new Audi A4 Premium Plus 2.0T quattro 2009 sedan. No problems up until about 5K+ miles, thereafter increasing engine sound / noise, gears not changing and getting stuck at 2nd/3rd gear. Reverse gear failed to engage during winter of 2009. Transmission filter & fluid was replaced, which resolved the problem for several months, until onset of winter 2010, the same problems are back now. Additionally card DRINKS oil, had to be in twice already to top up oil (car has 20K miles on it presently). Rattling and crackling noises are fairly frequent, which should NOT be seen in a luxury brand. God bless & long live Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, BMW & Mercedes. Please Stay CLEAR of AUDI !
External appearance and highway gas mileage only (City gas mileage is POOR)
NEED TO LEARN IMMEDIATELY FROM ACURA, LEXUS AND INFINITI how to make appealing and reliable automobiles.
Stop comparing yourselves (AUDI) to the luxury brands out there. As a matter of fact Honda, Toyota and Nissan make better / more reliable vehicles any day.
