2009 Audi A4 Long Term Road Test


2009 Audi A4 Avant: Wagon Helps Your Garden Grow

July 14, 2009

After stripping out the contents of an entire section of my front yard, I realized I'd better get something back into the vacant dirt bowl soon, before my friendly next-door baking neighbor started leaving me nasty notes instead of carrot cake and chocolate-chunk cookies.

Only needing a few medium-sized plants and a bunch of smalls, I figured our long-term 2009 Audi A4 Avant would do the job. Plus, I just plain love to drive it.

Of course, I hadn't planned on my husband adding a garden hose reel and a hula-ho (he just likes to say hula-ho) to the load, but the sporty wagon handled it all in its 17.3-cubic feet cargo area without even folding the rear seats flat.

And here's the second trip back to the nursery. It had nothing to do with the Audi's inability to carry everything at once, and more to do with my sudden planting fervor.The A4 Avant would've swallowed all the items in one trip if I had made a better pre-shopping plan. Good thing the nursery is just around the corner.
