This is a great car. I test drove the a4 and 3 series.
All three are great cars.
But optioned out the s60 kicks BMW and Audi butt. About $5k less. I received 5 yr warranty including maintenance at no charge! Not even BMW can beat that.
23 city 30 mpg highway. With gas prices the way they are I chose the 5 T over all wheel drive 6. Also about 6 k less. 1 k for snow tires makes more sense.
Back seat space a bit tight for full size adults. Engine noise a bit loud at low throttle.
