Want a dipstick?
By rkelsey on
Vehicle2013 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
ReviewDrove 75 miles to get car we wanted.
Replaced wife's 2006 Saab 9-3 Sportcombi; would have bought another Saab 9-3 if company hadn't gone belly up.
Premium Plus is a well damped firm/rough ride over potmarked New England backroads; highway ride is excellent.
Not a big fan of the electronic steering at highway speeds; poor feedback through steering wheel.
Wife drives the car and gets 23-24 mpg; I drive and get 28-29 mpg. On the all highway drive home from dealership, trip computer showed 31.7 mpg with cruise at 75 mph; mpg ranges above are using miles driven/gallons to fill tank calculation.
If we could afford a Q5 TDI, would get that for the wife, and take the A4 for myself. Updated review June 2016 at Edmunds' request. Now no longer see the contents of "Best Features" "Worst Features"; this blew away the content related to title... WTF!
VW part number for dipstick 06J115611E, won't show up for A4 B8 CPMA engine because there
is no dipstick in the car.
This dipstick is for CBFA, CCTA engines which are used in Audi A3, VW CC, VW
Tiguan, among others.
Length is correct, but MAX reading is actually where the "X" on the "MAX"
label is covered with oil.
Updated review Dec 2016 at Edmunds' request.
Real world mpg on a New Hampshire to Georgia trip 31 using Shell premium, 32 using Exxon premium; traffic permitting, drove speeds of 75 to 80 miles per hour w/cruise. Try to avoid buying gas in North Carolina; higher taxes than Virginia or
South Carolina. Thanks to turbo's low rpm torque, car sails up steep interstate highway grades effortlessly. (Example: I77 from North Carolina into Virginia)
