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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
