2009 Audi A4 Avant: Uncanny
September 16, 2010
With over 30,000 miles on its odometer, 164 blog posts, and still a perennial favorite of our staff, our 2009 Audi A4 Avant has proven itself a reliable and capable sports wagon as well as an awesome family or cargo hauler that achieves uncanny fuel economy (30 mpg best observed tank). I really had my doubts about how well this car would fare in our hands, but I am impressed and have already recommended it to several friends.
Of course that still doesn't keep the sun from sneaking around the visors. Uncanny how that happens so often. "Sorry, Hon. You're just going to have to slouch, or squint, or wait for the road to turn."
It joined our fleet officially in November 2008 (I know, I couldn't believe it's been that long either), so it won't be long when we post the Wrap Up story. Is there anything we've missed?
