Best Car I Have Ever Owned

I absolutely love my 2006 Audi A4 2.0T. I bought it as the second owner over 7 years ago and have loved every minute of my ownership. This car satisfies everything I want and need in a car, including reliability, great gas mileage, lots of pep - plus luxury and lots of Audi whistles and bells. The turning radius is awesome for tight spots. I am sold on Audi now and don't think I will be happy without one - and I have owned lots of nice cars, including BMW and Lexus. Audi is the one for me.

need mechanical work.

very bad car. i bought it by seeing pictures from a dealership in houston, but got fooled. the car was sold as is, without being told about repairs.

Cadillac of Sport Sedans

Very comfortable sedan. Drives well. Handles great. I'm averaging 27MPG on my commute, which is awesome for an AWD. Very great vehicle. Far better than a Subaru!

Great car if you don't need a backseat

As the title says if you do not need to carry more than 2 people this is the car for you. Good gas mileage, nice pick up speed, very comfortable and quite at 70 + MPH. Cons for the A4 are backseat space, premium fuel needed and all the "special" items needed just because it is an Audi.

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.

Satisfied purchase.

Recently purchase an Audi a4 2006. Extremely happy with my purchase thus far. Clean interior, black leather, wood trim, awd, outstanding performance, quality sound system, however they could have kept the tape deck out and added an aux jack instead. Overall good car.

Simply Amazing

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?''.

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.

BEST Car for the $$$ ever bought. EXCELLENT RE$ALE

I bought a 2006 for $23000 with 7000 miles. Drove the car for 6 years. Put 90,000 miles on it. YOU'RE IN 7TH (YES 7 GEARS. THE TRANSMISSION SHOWS ONLY 6, BUT THE RPM DROPS WHEN THE SPEED IS CONSTANT AS IN OVERDRIVE EVEN AT 40MPH. SO YOU GET 35 MPG IN THE CITY. 36 to 40 MPG if you don't rev it. TURBO KICKS SO EARLY, YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO REV IT ABOVE 2200 RPM. STEP ON IT ON THE HIGHWAY AND THE THING WILL HIT 90 mph IF YOU'RE NOT CAREFUL IN A FLASH AND EFFORTLESSLY UNDER 3000 RPM. I WANTED TO SEE HOW POWERFUL IT WAS ONCE AND I BLEW THE DOORS OF A 3MW 328I. ONLY TIME I TOOK IT TO 6000 RPM BUT IT WAS STILL UNDER THE REDLINE!!! Style is UNMISTAKABLY AUDI. (People thought it was an A8 sometimes) SMOOTH RIDE... WORKMANSHIP IS IMPECCABLE... TAKES TURNS LIKE THEY DONT EXIST. ICE, SNOW AND RAIN, THE THING DOES NOT BUDGE. AMAZING TRACTION CONTROL. TRANSMISSION IS SMOOTH AND LIKE A ROCK!!! AFTER 90K MILES IT DROVE EXACTLY THE SAME AS DAY 1. MY NEIGHBOUR'S SON HAS A HUGE GRIN ON HIS FACE WHEN I SEE HIM. HE WAXES THE THING EVERY WEEK IF HE COULD. LEATHER SEATS ARE SOLID AND 12 WAY ADJUSTABLE AND COMFORTABLE ON LONG TRIPS. HEATED SEATS WORKED FLAWLESSLY SOLD IT to my neighbour FOR $15000. after a $100 detail job the car looked NEW every time (GARAGED ALWAYS) JUST THINK ABOUT IT THE CAR DEPRECIATED $7000 IN 6 YEARS. THAT'S $4 DOLLARS A DAY!!! UNHEARD OF! CHANGED OIL EVERY 5000 MILES TIRES EVERY 40000 BRAKES AT 80000 MILES AND THAT'S IT. WHAT AN AWESOME CAR!!! I ONLY SOLD IT because I liked the new LED Headlights on the new A4. I wish I never did because it does not get more than 32MPG on highway. (ONLY REGRET)
