This car replaced my 01 Audi S4 Avant. I didn't miss it anymore. This is a very good driver's car. Great utility. Good stereo with power sub. Shifting could be smoother, but the Short shifter is great. Several service related problems: low steering and gear oil noted within the first month of driving, malfunction cruise control that dealer can't fix until another dealer changed the O2 sensor. (I complained to manufacturer). Battery leak led to corrosion of the bracket; dealer replaced the battery.
Mid-range engine power, good handling, short shifter, power subwoofer, trunk, exterior styling, interior fit and finish, big sunroof, bright gauges, headlight at almost HID quality.
Dealership service, questionable built quality, wind noise with roof cross bars, too many steps to close the sunroof, one touch up windows, VDC, RDS for the radio, doom light up front.
