This is a very good car. Love the interior and exterior, the feel is original. Everything about it is quality and the features are more than I would have asked for. Only complaint is an occasional rough downshift that the dealer says is normal.

2006 Audi A4 3.2L V6

i bought this car at 69k, its got 120k now, no sign of any problem and I frequently punch the pedal to hear that v6 roar, accelerates super quick despite being a 3800lb car and handling is amazing, you can drive this car in any weather at any speed with confidence, this car easily outhandles a 4x4 in the snow as well, i have driven 3500 and 1500 dodge rams and it doesnt come close, the ride is very smooth and the cabin is super quiet, the 10 speaker sound system is great, this car is built like a tank, but doesnt feel like it. transmission works flawlessly, maintanence is like any other car nothing out of the ordinary. Great car, never buy japanese highly recommended

You've Got to Get 1

Best entry level luxury car ever built. Enough said. I've owned them all Lexus, Acura, BMW (whichis very similar),Sterling,Benz,etc. I'm a car junkie. Audi is one of the best ever. I was a die hard BMW guy (owed 2) and then due to moving to cold climate I was told Audi's were good substitutes for Bimmers. Little did I know that is was as good or actually a little better due to traction. Ever thing else is dead even. The Good; Handling is superior, Customer service is top notch, Drive is a mix of sport with the 2.0 Turbo and Luxury with the 3.2 model. A very quick car.Reliability is also great. The Bad; It's not great on gas though and tire tread wear is excessive due to all wheel drive. Final Analysis; Buy this car. I did 3X already. I'm hooked. You will be to.

2006 Audi A4 sedan 2.0T

Owner since 2009, bought at 40k and I now have 110k. Good looks but it is the lemon year for the A4 (In california, Audi of America has a class action against them trying to designate this model a lemon as of September 2013). They changed from a 1.8 liter to a 2.0 in 2006. The 3 liters have less problems. All maintenance kept up but so many recalls and needed to be recalled items. Around 75k the manufacturer defects begin: Ignition coils go bad then get replaced under warranty by ones that go bad again, thermostat, water pump, and internally the glove box hinge will break and the clasp on the armrest snaps (these are all just the proven common threads I've seen with fellow Audi owners). Otherwise if its not in the shop it runs decent, stays stylish over the years and theres a lot of tuner aftermarket parts for the vehicle.

I absolutely love this car. I have the 3.2 version and am overly impressed by the smooth powerful engine and the luxurious interior. I owned a 2004 A4 3.0 previously and didn't think the 2006 could prove to be too much of an upgrade since I loved that car, but it is. My only issue is the small backseat, I just hate having to move my seat up for backseat passengers, but what can I say, Audi's are made for the driver, not the passengers. I can't wait till my next Audi, the Q5 drives just as smooth and fast as my A4, or I may want to opt for something with a V8, I don't know if I should do that!

I bought my audi a4 quattro 2.0t with 70k miles and it is the best car of its class.Im currently at 100k miles and has never gave me a single problem. Handles and rides smooth in any given road, gets me out of any situation wether it be snow or mud. Always gets looks and complaments. I average 27 mpg i can push 32 hwy. Engine had no tubo lag till i reached the tune up milage around 99k after i had it done it ran like new again(also did transmission fluid and differetials.) These engine well maintained could easily hit 250k+ on milage. This car does everything i need it to do it gets great gas milage, has quattro four wheel drive, all deck out with options, can tow a single trailor with my quad with no problem(1400lbs worth), and is constructed like a brick house, i hit a deer doing 55 on the highway and didnt even come close to damaging any internal parts only cosmetic. The only complaint i have is the hinge on the glove box snaps very easy cant put pressure on it at all. Once you drive an audi you'll ask youself. ''why didnt i get one sooner?''.

I have always liked Audi's classy and luxury looks. It did not change my mind when I finally purchased my own. It has been everything for me, in terms of luxury, performance and handling, comfortableness, reliability, etc. My next car, will def be an Audi again.

Audi or BMW?

After owning both, I would have to say the BMW. I purchased the Audi for winter driving, and it does handle that like a champ. But the interior is astonishingly bad for the money. In six years, the leather seat has developed rips, the clasp to the middle console and front visor have both broken off, and the glove compartment door is hanging by one hinge. By contrast, the BMW 3 series that I turned in after 10 years was in pristine shape. Some owner, same wear.
