2004 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


OK. Had this car 5 years now and wanted to add some perspective to all these reviews. First, car is great and works very well. No major issues while under warranty. A few little things here and there -- warm up when cold is rough and car rattles a bit, cup holder finally bit the dust in dash and will never come out again. (Partly its own fault and partly my anger out of its complete uselessness). Low water light for window washer comes on for no reason. Out of warranty had to have some vacuum hose work done for $700. Overall the car is still great but with all the little nits and nags you would expect with any car after 5 years and 70k miles. Roof great and no leaks!

Best Features

The top! Truck space is incredible, especially with top up. Fit, finish and overall ride are great. The car still looks completely new and very, very attractive. People seem to think it is brand new, which in this economy probably makes people mad. MPG remains strong. Avg 32 mpg on recent trip.

Worst Features

Cup holders!! Total disaster -- as I said, I think I destroyed mine out of total rage for the whole situation. Smoother stopping with the CTV -- small jerk when coming to complete stop (might be idle issue). Seats with memory settings. Softer seats.
