Thanks to most of the reviewers here, I made the decision to purchase a used S4 (along with Audi's pure protection additional warranty). I have to say it is the most amazing car I've ever owned--even over my 67 Mustang fastback. As another reviewer said "it does everything right". A pleasure to drive, doesn't look fast but runs like a refined rocket, handles like a track car and is great in snowy terrain of the north west. Highway MPG is doable, and for those that lament about city MPG, realize it's 340HP w/over 300lb ft torque...in the same engine compartment as the A4 (which I've owned 1.8t) and also liked. This is like a supermodel love affair in comparison. Gracious, powerful, refined
Besides everything...growl, handling, torque, acceleration, as usual, perfect interior ergonimics. The recaro seats are excellent. You can still take the kids to school in it and make the Vette, WRX, M3 sorry he pumped the gas ,just make sure there is a curve in there somewhere...and a clean rear view
As was with the A-4 the cupholder is terrible. Also, buy a clean example or certified pre-owned. You can't get everything at Pepboys for this one. I was lucky enough to find one with 29K and in immaculate condition. I still bought 4yrs/48k additional coverage from Audi, find one with factory warranty!
