Fast, Rough and Thirsty
By Brian on


2006 Audi S4 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


One of the fastest cars I have ever owned (and I like fast expensive cars), a blast to drive for fun, but after a year I can't live with it anymore. A fifteen gallon tank and 15-18 miles to the gallon means filling up every other day. At 80 mph the car is turning 3200 rpm and while the suspension feels great on back roads, on the highway (where I spend too much time) the suspension makes small road imperfections feel like speed bumps. I know I won't get much sympathy here, but when talking on the cell phone on the highway, road imperfections make my voice warble, not good when talking to clients. A GREAT weekend car, but a tough daily driver.

Best Features

The engine, exhaust and the seats. Every high end sports sedan should have Recaros and a quad exhaust V-8 rumble.

Worst Features

A larger gas tank, an overdrive for 6th gear and an adjustable suspension.
