2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Went from E36 M3 to M Roadster to B5 S4 to E46 M3, and now this B6 S4. What a difference! The V8 is a torque monster compared to the M cars, and handling is every bit as sharp and confidence-inspiring. Interior can't be beat, and Bose stereo works well. I think Audi's nav system has a contract with the oil companies, as this thing will re-route you all over the country. Passing power is awesome, but clutch engagement is very tricky. Highly recommended, as long as you don't live in a city. City MPG is between 9-13! The fun factor is worth every gallon however.


Best Features

V8 power, Interior design and build quality, Bose audio, AWD, improved transmission, exhaust rumble, cavernous trunk, ride quality for a sports sedan, understated styling.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage, tricky clutch. Smallish back seat, but who cares? Xenon lights could be brighter compared to BMW.

2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The S4 is a very smooth and powerful car. The build quality is excellent and the interior is beautiful. The torque range is very good and linear. I would like a little more steering feel and a little less body roll through tight turns. I love the exhaust note and turn off the stereo just to hear it(even though the stereo is excellent). I have a Porsche Boxster S which I love; this car is great, just different. It is an awesome car which works as a daily driver except for the gas mileage.


Worst Features

I would like to see more distinguishing features from the base A4 (like bulging fender wells, better side skirts).

2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Leased silver sedan with automatic trans in October 2003. Car has 35,000 miles. It is truly a driver's car - on windy, country roads, it handles as well as my Porsche 911. The handling is superior as are the brakes and ride quality. Reliability has been a bit of an issue - transmission had to be replaced - would have cost in excess of $6500 if car had not been under warranty. In short, if you can accept the extremely mediocre gas mileage, and want to carry 4 in relative comfort, and you want a smile on your face every time you drive, this is the machine.


Best Features

Ride and handling; looks and "stance"; AWD in winter weather.


Worst Features

Interior, while classy, is due for a re-do.

2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is one sensational automobile. Leased S4 automatic from local dealer in October 2004 and have been smiling ever since. The performance and handling are superb; very close to my 2004 Porsche 911 C2 in terms of fun to drive quotient over windy, country roads. My spouse, who wanted an A6, uses the S4 to commute and loves its size and superior handling and power. The suspension is compliant/ A true sports sedan! Super in winter with a set of 4 snow tires. Downside: fuel economy is atrocious - under 15 mpg around town. But when lease expires in April '07, we have already decided to get another. Love Audi's bumper to bumper warranty and service from local dealer.


Best Features

Power and handling; fit and finish.


Worst Features

Interior needs to be revamped to bring it in line with new A6 and A8

2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Absolutely awesome performance. Does everything well or better than my last Porsche 911. Fit and finish is excellent and build materials are the best at any price range. Driving the S4 at low or extreme high speeds feels efforlessly with comfort and composure. The quattro makes a good driver a great driver and makes up for mistakes that would normally put a 911 in the bushes. The two-tone silver suede and leather Recaro seats are the best in the hi-performance industry. The motor pulls stong down low and doesnt let up to its 7200rpm redline. Its a cross between a 911 and muscle car. I cant say enough about the new S4. Its in its own league when compairing other extreme sport sedan.


Best Features

Big 8 cylinder music and torque. Seats, smooth 6-speed manual, quality fit and finish.
