Was looking to buy a Subaru Outback, but when I saw the Audi on a local car lot, I stopped in and gave it a drive. Was impressed by its styling. Very atttractive, but not pretentous. Transmission very smooth, as is engine, which has decent power, and gets good gas mileage for a V-6 AWD, about 25 MPG on highway. Fantastic on slick/wet roads. Nice leather interior that doesn't have any rips or discoloration after 130,000 miles. If you fold the rear seat down, there is a ton of room in the back. Great on long trips. Very reliable except for front driving light bulbs don't last very long. Well built, doesn't have any rattles

Flashy and fast. Your friends will envy you. But very expensive to maintain. Great fun to drive. Great performance/handling, great in snow. Comfortable, refined, roomy. Now the bad: poor gas mileage (17 mpg); eats brakes-pads & rotors every 18 month$, control arms bearings replaced twice in 3 years, water pump. Interior trim always falling off. Undercarriage airdam fell off while driving. LED display goes to black. "check engine" light goes on frequently, dealer says "intermittent"-no help. Don't buy one without extended warranty! I bought this used with about 27k on it. Warranty expires at 100k, then I'm done with it. Scratched the Audi itch.

We bought our Wagon 4 1/2 years ago and we've really enjoyed the styling and room it provides. As mentioned previously, the engine could have had more power but the T'tronic gives you the ability to get creative on the road. Great for hauling and it still looks great but the cost of minor problems is a bit much. we have 81k and i'm debating selling or trading in just because i worry about what's to come. again, i love the german styling, but my japanese vehicle is 3 years older and i feel safer on long trips in it rather than the audi.

Very useful car, holds a ton of stuff,
especially if you add a roof rack. A
bit underpowered at 200 HP, but
adequate if you don't do a lot of hill
driving. Great for kids, safe and
reliable. Interior is superb for a car
of this price.

I've owned several cars from SAABs to
Hondas to Acuras and by far, the
engineering in the Audi is far superior
to all the cars I've owned. There is
no shortage of safety features in this
car and they've thought of most
convenience features in this package.
