2009 Audi A4 Avant: Life's a Beach

August 31, 2010

I've had worse Sundays. That's my daughters and our long-term 2009 Audi A4 Avant during our outing this past weekend to the beaches of Malibu, California. Obviously the weather was ideal for testing the Audi's legendary Quattro system. Yuck, yuck.

Seriously, the A4 remains one of my favorite long-term cars ever. I never turn down a chance to drive it. And I've never regretted grabbing its key. It's one of those car that does everything well. Plus, it remarkably feels like just the right vehicle for every occasion. Opening night at the opera? Lets take the A4 Avant. Surf safari? A4 Avant. Run to the recycle center? Well, you get the idea.

And it doesn't seem to age. After more than 30,000 miles our Audi still feels new and its just as beautiful to look at and to drive as the day we got it.

I think I'll take it home again tonight. Maybe I can get the kids to vacuum up the piles of sand they left in it.
