Never Again

by professional driver from New Jersey on Sat Feb 12 2011

I bougt it for my son. Two years later we had no choice, but to get rid of it. I had many cars, but nothing comes close to this. Two words: Unreliable and Expensive (parts and to fix)

Not a luxury car as they tend to make us believe

by cremor from detroit on Fri Oct 03 2008

It just wasn't what i expected. I mean the car looks very good from the outside, but on a performance stand point Im kinda of disappointed. and also i think a car should be kind of resistent to some kind of physical contact with other cars, but the A4 don't look too good at the least contact.

Best car in the past 5 years

by Brlz from NYC on Wed Jul 18 2018

It drove for years without any issues. This site made the difference between buying and not. I enjoy the platform to review and compare cars.

Our Take on the 1996 Audi A4

German automakers are often seen as a serious bunch. Stoic in their resolve for outstanding engineering and firmness, it seems they never allow room for fun.

But once in awhile, they let their hair down and get loose with a wild little model that's just heaps of fun.

Here are two, the Audi A4 Quattro and BMW 318ti California.

AUDI A4

The Audi A4 has been out for about a year, doing battle with BMW's 3-series and the Mercedes C-class, not to mention a few Asian competitors. The advantage it has over them all is a lower base price and the availability of an all-wheel-drive Quattro model.

Volkswagen's upscale division has fielded a car that not only is a dream from a marketing standpoint... Read More
