2011 Audi A4 2.0T Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

I am very pleased with my A4 overall. I love driving it -- the car scoots and turns corners like it's on rails. I don't drive fast enough to notice any understeer, which is reportedly present (CD). Only two minor complaints: First, it uses oil. In the two years I've owned it, only two extra quarts, but still extra oil. Second, the radio has an inexplicable quirk. I regularly (read always) listen to an AM talk-radio station. Once in a while - it seems to correspond to cold wet weather - the sound flops from low to high volume. The amount of flop seems to correspond to the settings that specify how much the radio sound is turned down when the parking sensors are doing their job. But the parking sensors are not on and it only weirds out on the one station; others play just fine. I guess as long as you don't listen to talk radio, this is not an issue. Note: The dealer couldn't figure it out and was not interested in fixing it, despite it being under full warranty when I took it in. That didn't please me much. I'll buy my new 2017 Q5 somewhere else. I repeat -- I absolutely love this car -- more room than a BMW 3-series and just as fun to drive.

2011 Audi A4 2.0T Avant Premium quattro 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

If you want a car that needs lots of oil, like a Qt once a month and that beeps a lot, (why) this is it/ Looks awesome, drives great and good in the snow (with snow tires) but it drinks oil and Audi of America will not fix the cars. Any Audi/VW with the 2.0T will consume oil. Up to 1 Qt every 1000 mi. Do the math, then but a Japanese or American car. I have had Audis for 20 years and this is it, Done.... Oh, If you open the door there is a loud beep/ warning that door open lights on, seatbelt, Gets old quick. Also controls for heat/radio/phone are too complicated with several clicks to get where you want. no "one touch" options.


Best Features

Looks good, Snow is no match for quatro


Worst Features

Oil consumption is too high and will damage the turbo/cats. Beeping at everything you do. Overly complicated controls.

2011 Audi A4 2.0T Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

This is a known issue - just goggle Audi A4 oil consumption problems and you will see. Audi has refused a recall and the fix - new rings and pistons - costs between $6000 - $7000. It's really disappointing that Audi has not stepped up to address this on a broader scale.

2011 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

It absolutely breaks my heart to write this review (seriously, I'm emotionally attached to my Audis)... I have been driving Audi/VW for the past 15-16 years. This was my first new Audi purchase (I had previously bought used). Car was AWESOME for the first 1.5 years. In the past 6 months it has started an problem burning/consuming oil. First, I had to add one quart of oil between changes (every 5000 miles), which we are told is within spec for this Audi. It has progressively gotten worse and is now burning so much I have to add a quart every 750 miles. Audi would not do an oil consumption test until it got BELOW 800 miles. IF Audi fixes the problem, I think I'll have to switch brands. :(


Best Features

Looooove the drive and performance!! Beautiful body.


Worst Features

Oil consumption

Review

Loved this car. Had it for two years and 20K miles and had no problems. Decided to try something new but then was kicking myself and missing my Audi. Enjoyed the handling and speed and the pick-up. It felt like a race car, even though it looked like a sedan. I had absolutely no problems with this car, although I did have to add half a quart of oil at about 8K and 18K miles -- very minor and not a problem at all.


Best Features

Handling on curves. Ability to pick up speed on the highway. Liked how responsive the accelerator was. Also liked the design on the front end of the car.


Worst Features

Needs a cup holder for two cups in the front.
