S4 Avant

by S4Lovr from Denver,Colorado | July 19, 2013

This car is awesome, period. Everywhere I go, I get complements on my (new to me) Avant. And the power, its there when you need it ! Now its not a 500 horse powerhouse like some cars out there, but for everyday driving and even when you want to go to the mountain twisties, this car is just right to get the job done with a big smile on your face ! The only two slightly negative things about this car are these : the gas consumption is 13 city / 20 highway. Average is 16mpg. If that shocks you then this isn't the car for you. Then comes the overall cost of ownership, above the gas guzzeling. when she needs to go to the shop for something specific or just a simple oilchange ( which will cost $100 even if you do it yourself) , plan on a bare minimum of $150 to $300. Now, if your not swayed by any of that and you just plain love this car (like I do) than find the best speciman you can and take the plunge !! Oh yeah, did I mention the exhaust note... Highly addicting !!!!!

2008 Audi S4 Cabriolet

by johnnyp from Summit, NJ | April 16, 2012

Great car! Wanted a convertible that was comfortable and could seat 4 passengers + good looks + good performance. BMW 6 series and 3 series are great performers but lacked passenger room, especially trunks. Plus BMW I-drive is painful. Audi was smart to offer soft top bc it saves trunk space. Can't beat quattro 4-wheel drive for winters! Downside is gas mileage - those of you looking for quiet ride should look at A4, as the S4 has V8 rumble (appealing and fun to drive). Variable assist steering, though lacks feel, excellent around town. If you want sheer driver's car performance drop top, look at M3. If you have a few kids in tow, and want a fun car that can be admired by all, the S4 delivers in spades.

Aud S4

by Mike from Defiance, Ohio | November 11, 2011

I bought this 2008 S4 used with 35,000 miles on it. I have now had it for 6 months and put 5,000 miles on it and it has been great. The ride took some getting used to as it is pretty firm, but now that I am, its great. With the manual transmission, it is a joy to drive. The engine sounds fantastic and I frequently dont even turn on the radio. Putting snow tires on it next week and with the quatro all wheel drive, there wont be much this car wont be able to handle this winter. The 4.2 liter V8 is a work hourse and should last a long time. I intend to keep this car for 6-8 years and it should wear fine. Have two other VWs and have over 200M miles on them together and they have been great. Only issue is with my hieght (6-4), no one can sit behind me. Becomes a three passenger car.

S4 Avant 2008

by Mike from Philadelphia, PA | August 12, 2008

I love my 2008 s4 avant. I have had it 6 months and think it is the perfect combo of performance and practicality. The stock manual gearbox can be tricky with the v8, but if you are into after-market clutches, short-throw gearboxes, and exhausts, this car can be transformed into a four door 911s with about $5k US.
