Great looker - very poor reliability
By Stephen Williams on


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


This is my second S4 (I had a 2001 previously), and my 5th Audi. The design is great, interior elegant and ergonomic, and it performs great. But the reliability has been miserable. I only kept it for 6 months - it was in the shop every month of those 6 months. It went through brake rotors, had a coolant leak, an transmission cooler leak, the ABS system failed intermittently, and the check engine light came on (bad O2 sensors) twice. Probably the last Audi I'll ever buy - sad really.
