Simply a blast!

Vehicle: 2002 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Great vehicle! First Audi I've owned. Comfortable, fast and not too flashy. Was looking for an A8 at the time. Came across the S4 and drove it home. So far, the most fun vehicle I've owned and seems to be as reliable as a Benz. The only qualm is the cost of service is as expensive as Jags. Fortunately it's never in shop though but for the scheduled intervals (every 10000 miles... awesome!). I've come to the conclusion that the next vehicle upgrade will be for another S4!

This is an all around great car. It's an absolute blast to drive, and you can blow away most cars you'll encouter at the red light on your way home from the grocery store. Plus, it's just a little bit different, which is always good.

Low quality performer

I couldn't be happier with the stock performance of this car. The price to performance and features ratio of this car can't be beat, and simple upgrades can make this car truly track ready. In the Northeast or snowy climes, no car on the road can touch it (B6 S4 and RS 6 aside). But quality, reliability, and dealer service is absolutely brutal. Electrical system problems are Audi's specialty, but I have also had problems with everything from rattles to rivets popping to coolant pumps failing to leather spalling to ... Service quality and knowledge from dealers is poor (e.g. Audi service does not feel it's necessary to rotate tires).

I just want to set the record straight on this issue. Is there going to be a S4 2002??? From what I heard and even going to European Audi sites, the S4 berline will be discontinued for at least a coup...

The new A4 -- if I can "lux and sport" it up enough, may save me south of $10,000 -- the last time I drove the V6 2.7T S4 (2002) it had 250 HP and it was a rocket....

There IS a 2002 S4 that you can order NOW!...
