2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Review

This vehicle is very versatile. It isn't the fastest car nor the sexiest nor the safest but it IS the best combination of all of these. It is plenty fast, has very good looks, fit and finish, has all the safety features one could want such as curtain airbags and AWD, and has the ability to be usefull year round in northern climates. What this car isn't is reliable. They are expensive to repair largely due to the very tight packaging constraints of fitting in the v8. Common issues include clutches, valve cover gaskets, coilpacks, tensioner pullies, and starters. In three months of ownership the car visited the dealership 4 separate times with a total of 2 thousand in repairs (warrantied).

Favorite Features

Seductive exhaust note with linear powerband. Fit and finish is superb. Quattro makes it easy for bad drivers to look good.

Suggested Improvements

While the quattro allows almost anyone to play hard in this car with 340 hp, it also takes away some of the raw fun you will get out of a RWD car like the M3. Reliablility is terrible and repairs are very expensive.
