2004 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Ok so i feel like the only people that write reviews are the people that have problems...... Really you are switching from a Nice loaded sports car to a cheapo Economy car with cloths seats?????? I myself have never had any problems and several of my buddies have never had any problems only on EDMUNDS do people have problems.....
2004 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
Bought an A4 2004 with extended warranty. Made a maintanence checkup with Keys Audi in Los Angeles. Told me i had to wait 2 weeks. i origanlly had a bad vibration problem to seek the appt anyway. 2 weeks latwer at 103,000 mile son car they would not honor the 100,00 warranty. AND would not honor the extended warranty. I called Audi America and bitc$$! Made them honor the extended warranty. Only got an oil change and tire rotation( SCREWED) OK THEN i asked them what was the vibration,THEY TOLD ME...Motor Mounts. Wanted 2k from the dealer to fix. I went to local mech for $800. Replaced them vibration was still there. 3 days later ENGINE BLEW! Due to timing chain fail.Called them,did nothing
None! Still so upset with the engine blow.The car LOOKS brand new thanks to MY maintenence.BUT Even since engine replacement forever has problmes. I honestly feel they owe me a darn car!Very unhelpful,misdiagnosed problem by the dealer!Constant problmes now.EVERYTHING has been replaced on this car.LEMON.Never Again .Neverbeen treated worse, never had a car this bad.Never ever ever .
Customer service,Engine reliability.Warranty Honored,Engine reliability.AND to beat all that , the car still has a bad vibration...
2004 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Original owner of this 3.0 A4 since new. Right off the lot, negotiated 5% down. Now 7 yrs experience with it with 81K kms traveled. Quality, stability, stance, control, performance are all above great with decent gas mileage of 7.9l/100km highway 9-10l/100km city with quattro using synthetic. Audi maintenance covers everything during 3 yr warr and dealer's have provided exceptional service. They replaced all my brake disc's, pads and spark plugs all under warranty. Burnt bulbs, lighter socket, wiper lever seized from salt also replaced /w warr.
Coils replaced under recall, but never problems just glithces with electronic in window controls, sunroof, and resets of A/C.
The most fun with the quarttro smart 4 wheel drive in the winter months, the best control and excelleration in bad road or weather conditions. Beautiful, fit and finish, it feels luxurious. Very quiet inside cabin to this date. Balanced vehicle great cornering and control. Totally reliable, maybe just a lucky pick of the lot. Not as fast as rear wheel drive competition in ¼ mile but better control than those and train like pull with its long torque band.
Clunky manual shifting for the 6 speed, not totally smooth as achieved by the BMW's manuals. Maybe a shorter shifter. Include better quality carpet pads, the original wears out in about 3-4 yrs. Parking brake must be pulled tight or car can slip on a hill. Didn't get the optional nav, garmin is better and far less expensive.
2004 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
When running properly, the performance of this car is impressive.
It was built for the Autobahn and is fun to drive fast, but we're not in Germany.
Cons: I've had many mechanical and computer issues.
Driver side electric window mechanism replaced, catalytic converter replaced, speakers go in and out on the front driver side, ignition coils replaced, uses a lot of oil, check engine light on more often than not.
At <b>least<b/> a $1000 everytime I have to take it to the shop.
The interior design isn't practical.
The second cup holder is in the middle console but it's very cumbersome to access.
I'm shopping for a new car and it won't be an Audi.

2004 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
It's great when it everything is in running order.
I bought the car new and have since run it to 188k miles.
At 115k, the engine died on me.
Something came loose that ruined one of the cylinders. Fortunately, I have a friend who's a mechanic that was able to procure me a used engine with 60k on it. After that, the bushings had to be replaced and then the fuel pump.
I love my car and still have it, but I don't think I'll buy Audi again. Too much money for maintenance and gas.
Build a car with reliability. For paying a premium, I don't think that's too much to ask.
