2005 Audi S4 Wagon Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Amazing all around package. Perfect compromise for those who need cargo space and the ability to blow the doors off anything with a Hemi. I ski a lot, and once the snow tires are on, there is no better, or faster, way to the mountains. Also, nobody does better interiors than Audi. Top-notch materials, easy to operate, and everything right where it should be. It's great when in a car this fast you don't have to take your eyes off the road to turn down the stereo.


Best Features

The sound of that engine at 6500 rpms says it all.


Worst Features

Needs a taller 6th gear. Would help with highway mileage and not affect overall performance.

2005 Audi S4 Wagon Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This car rips! After one year, have not found handling limits yet. V8 not torquey in muscle car style but really screams towards redline. Throw your bike or skis in the back and go carve up (and down) a canyon. Bose stereo took quite a while to break in but worth the wait. Where else can you get this level of performance and a stick w this level of practicality?


Best Features

Winter tire package turns this avant into a snowmobile


Worst Features

How about a heated steering wheel option.

2005 Audi S4 Wagon New Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

BMW's M3 really is a phenominal car; quick, solid and good looking, but how many do you see around. The S4 is understated and, for an estate, very attractive. Straight line the BMW will win, driving entertainment and again the M3 pips the Audi to the post but for sheer aural entertainment nothing can beat a V8 (except a V10). Not only that, but Audi's Quattro system means that 344PS is avaiable come rain or shine an awesomely inspiring piece of German engineering - next time Audi, a little rear bias on the Quattro and that sacrifice in grip will be more than made up for in driving entertainment.


Best Features

Grip


Worst Features

Rear bias.

Review

only one problem as the diagnostics computer had to be replaced after continious check engine light malfunctions. Totally solid in the rain and any other driving condition. She loves to drink, but i suppose one should be able to afford the fuel if they can afford the car.


Best Features

Drivetrain! Beautiful engine, transmission and driveline make for worry-free driving after three and half years of driving a Honda S2000 through torrential California rains!


Worst Features

Everything i could have asked for is being added in the updated 2005.5 models. Would like the option of front and rear parking assist in the United States (i know its available in Europe; rear is by VERY special order only here in the States).

Review

I have had an interesting experience with my leased 2005 S4 Avant. After one day with the car I noticed a large oil leak under it. To make a long story short, the car had a bad gasket, my dealer repaired the problem and Audi of America compensated me for the headache. Otherwise the car has been a joy todrive and I love this vehicle.


Best Features

The car drives like it is on rails. It is an amazing vehicle, it is fast, luxurious and handles incredibly well.


Worst Features

I would like to see the car have a locking gas cap/door feature. I can't say gas mileage, because I knew it wasn't going to be that great. I average 18-19 mpg.
