2002 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Audi should never even offer an automatic transmission in a car like this...even the Tiptronic. Aside from being "clunky," after 8,000 miles mine has been in the shop going on 3 weeks because it will no longer shift gears! The right rear brake make an ear shattering squeal and they can't seem to fix that either. The brakes are awful on the smallest amount of ice or snow. There is an unacceptable number of squeaks, rattles and buzzes inside. And, even though a small point, two of the cup holders are underneath the armrest...very handy! I guess Germans don't drink and drive. For the price, extreme disappointment is all I can say about this vehicle.
Handles well. Great power from 60 to 100 mph. Nicely styled. Good sound system.
Put it together better. Eliminate the automatic transmission option with this twin turbo-charged engine. Find more torque at the low end.
