Surprising performance for 1.8L engine

I originally bought this car for my wife, who doesn't care so much about performance, but I have found it to be a very fun car to drive. The sport suspension is a little stiff (to be expected) but it handles excellently and is very responsive. Acceleration is surprising considering the engine specs, but Audi did a great job tuning the turbo for the torque curve. My only complaint is that the center console is a little wide for a long legged guy like me (especially when the kids are in the back) because my knee has to rest against it. Otherwise a great drive, with good ergonomics.

The suspension is nice and stiff, the ride is bumpy on Michigan roads. The seats are very nice and the interior is well designed. Visability is good. The braking is poor in snow, this may be due to the tires, but it goes but doesnt turn or stop. Good engine, but mechanical problems are expensive and complex and tend to be difficult to fix. Manual shift was fun, good gas mileage, but requires premium due to the turbo. I would not buy another. I have spent more time getting to know mechanics in the past two years than with any other car that I have owned. Cadillac and BMW are better cars, both better rides.

I love this car and will drive it into the ground. It does have some small pricey quarks. Window regulators along with several components which like to play games and choose to work or take the day off. the ride is so smooth with quick response. the inside is perfection. the entire layout is smooth with no gap lines completely solid. little attention to detail makes it easy on the eyes. this car is simply wonderful and if you so choose to love it she is an expensive woman to keep happy.

This car is a great car. The features of an A4 with the engine of an A6. Audi does a great job of making a car that is not too flashy yet not too boring. It truely is the perfect car. The all wheel drive is perfect for the Minnesota driver and the handling is equal, in my opinion, to the BMW handling that I have experienced in my previous cars. It gets good milage, has a great warranty and is not outrageously expensive. This truely is a sportscar for those who don't want people to know that they have a sports car. Compare this vehicle to A4 1.8 and 2.0 and I am sure you will decide that this is the one that you want.

Audi A4

by from Detroit, MI on May 22, 2006

Other than the check engine light constantly tripping, this vehicle lives up to expectations. Comfort, performance and handling are fantastic. Great in all weather conditions.

Good condition

by from Cincinnati, OHIO on November 9, 2013

This car is very comfortable, I feel good to drive it, also, the price is not so high for me to buy it. The body of the cat is pretty well.
