2009 Audi A4 Avant: Finally, AWD Makes Sense in LA

December 29, 2010

It's not very often you can justify the extra cost of all-wheel drive in Los Angeles. But over the past two weeks we've had more rainfall in the City of Angeles than we typically get during an entire winter.

That's meant road closures, even worse potholes and plenty of scared Angelenos behind the wheel.

Too bad they can't all enjoy the confidence that comes with driving our long-term 2009 Audi A4 Avant with quattro. Other than the hissing road noise and the water on the windshield I can't even tell it's raining when I drive this car.
