Review of the 2004 Audi S4

  • Though not quite as enthralling as BMW's frenetic M3, the S4 still offers entertaining performance along with a more livable personality.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Broad power band, fast and confident in the turns, high-quality materials and attractive cabin design.

  • Cons

    Small backseat, priced close to more established rivals.

  • What's New for 2004

    The all-new S4 sports some serious hardware, not the least of which is a 4.2-liter V8 bristling with 340 horsepower. A convertible body style has been added to the lineup.

This one does it all

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

This is the perfect car if you don't want to be seen in a "sports car". Not to mention, you can haul a few kids along the way as well. Although it is not as athletic as a Cayman, it will easily blow away your expectation as to what a grocery hauler can do. It has the class inside and out as you'd expect from an Audi. The 4.2L V8 is a battle-tested dynamo in the lineup. Sure, you can complain about the mileage, but don't buy this car if that's on the top of your list - high performance is what it is. Although we haven't used it to tow anything, it is our do it all car anytime of the year. If you can find one (sedan or wagon), jump on it, you will be happy

Uber wagon, year round satisfaction

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

What a great year round vehicle! Classy looks, classy interior, good handling, comfortable ride, 4 doors, wagon versatility, great power, all wheel drive, powerful brakes, and in my case, absolutely reliable, no problems. This car offers a combination that few, if any can match. Great engineering. Get your M3s out of the barn in the Midwest during winter. LOL




S4 avant - a car

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Purchased my S4 Avant in July 07. Most enjoyable car I have owned. It has utility but is refined and comfortable, the design and styling of the B6 model S4 is timeless. The handling is incredible and effortless despite a 2 ton curb weight, 4 doors, a fully functional rear seat and a large wagon cargo area. My fuel economy has averaged 17.8. I have gotten as high as 21 in highway only driving. Not as bad as others suggest, but certainly no economy or hybrid. The acceleration certainly provides a more than adequate trade off. The rear seat is comfortable for average adult passengers. Not as spacious as a full size (A6/8, 5/7series) but the other options don't provide a V8 6 spd manual.




One of my favorites

Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Over the years I have owned a number of fast cars and this ranks as one of the best. I originally intended buying the sedan but ended up getting the wagon (with a 6 speed) which I think is even better looking and a bit more practical.




The most camoflaged car on

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Third child came/ TT had to go/wife got minivan and I got a world class sports car disguised as a family station wagon.Audi builds great exteriors(Black on Black)and even better interiors(two-tone black/grey Alcantara,Recaro seats,both front&back seats).Bose concert sound is very nice but the throaty rumble of 340HP is even nicer.Quattro lends confidence that even in the worst weather my family is safer in the Avant than in our minivan.A note about gas mileage big V8s can have big appetites especially in city driving, however I found the highway gas mileage to be comparable to other V8s.




Sleeper wagon

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi S4 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

I think that this car was custom made for me by the powers that be. My husband knew he was sunk as soon as I sat in it! The wagon is such a sleeper, just to see the look on the faces of the wanna be racers I blow away on the freeway makes me giddy. Yet, the wagon is extremely versatile. I have 2 large labs that I cart around in the cargo space, with the seats up! I take long trips with the dogs and the car is super comfortable and performs in all types of weather. The seats hug you comfortably and overall the car's performance it stellar. I LOVE IT!! Was gonna hold out for the BMW545it, but glad I didn't.
