I have had my A4 for over a month now and absolutely love it! I bought it used with 70000 miles on it. I've put 5000 on it so far with no problems at all. This was the car that I always wanted. I traded in a 2004 VW Touareg V8 for this car. Loved the VW but the gas mileage was getting a bit much. The interior is very classy and refined, just like the Touareg.
I have always liked this particular generation of the A4, it's very handsome, aged well and looks great. I think the Avant wagon looks a bit racier than the sedan, which looks a bit too boxy in the rear.
I've done my homework with this car. It's well known that the 1.8 Turbo 4 is nothing but problems. They crammed a Turbo 4 into the engine bay and it just runs SUPER HOT all the time. Timing belts are very expensive to replace at more than $1000 a pop, no thank you!
That's why I chose the 3.0 V6. More power with a smoother ride. Mileage takes a hit but thats fine with me. I guess that's why it is very hard to locate the V6 Avants, they are proven to be much more reliable than the Turbo 4 Avants. I'm very happy with this car and plan on keeping it for many years.
