2009 Audi A4 Long Term Road Test

2009 Audi A4 Avant: Xmas Tree Time

December 23, 2008


You had to see the look on the guy's face when I asked him to tie that 10-foot tall Christmas tree to the roof of my brand-new 2009 Audi A4 Avant. He couldn't believe it. It was like I asked him to eat worms.

"You sure," he said to me, his eyes admiring the Audi's fresh gray paint.

"Sure guy," I replied. "Just throw it up there."

Sometimes driving somebody elses $44,000 sport wagon has its moments, but seriously, the little A4 handled this big-SUV-type job without a wimper.

And yes, I hosed off all the pine needles. I might be careless, but I'm not cruel.
