Great Car, but it has its Highs and Lows
By James G on


2005 Audi A4 1.8T quattro Special Ed. AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I've owned my Audi A4 Ultrasport since 2006 when I bought it with 12K miles and it looked brand spanking new. It now has 138K miles on it and a lot of story's to tell. The car looks great, I get compliments on it all the time. The car gets decent gas millage (22 combined, 28+ on road trips) and is fairly mechanically sound, but has had many little things go wrong with it which adds up to a great annoyance. The car is expensive to own especially if you want everything working properly and looking good, I was used to Honda's before and the Germans clearly have a different outlook on vehicles. My take; Great car for the enthusiasts, not for your average commuter.

Best Features

- Exterior/Interior Styling - Convenient Placed Controls - Decent Gas Millage - Rear Trunk Space / Full Sized Spare - Driver Leg Room (I'm 6'6" and fit great) not as great with rear passengers bigger then an infant - Engine Reliability

Worst Features

- Better Performance ( You NEED an Aftermarket Chip) - Better build quality(Broken; Passenger windows, glove box, power steering, fuel pump, center console, visor, etc...) - More Rear seat space, its hard to take road trips with 4 ppl - High Cost of Ownership - Premium fuel without the performanc
