excellent design, reliability much worse than in the past

2009 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Went from the 2003 A4 model to 2009 - old model was a real german design - tight handling, powerful, good brakes.
The new one gained in dimensions - you feel inside like in a mid-size car, but the steering is too soft, I guess to appeal more to american drivers.
Just one note - the car is not anymore a 100% german car - parts are made in other parts of the world and the overall quality has suffered.
Have that in mind - repairs over the 4/50k warranty are very expensive both parts and labor - currently at 35k miles and thinking to trade-in.

Best Features

Excellent design inside and out

Worst Features

Go back to the old steering; improve reliability - watch what happened to Volkwagen because of low reliability parts - protect your customer base here in NA - sorry to see especially the quality of engines going down - some burn as much as 1qt of oil every 2000 miles. The 2.0T engine has an excellent design but it is poorly manufactured.
