I am now an Audi Loyalist!

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!

Perfectly Amazing

I ran across this car when i graduated high school this year i was goin to the honda lot in order to get a new civic si then i spoted the audi think it was out of my price rage i decided to stop and test drive it for fun.....

Newest Audi Fan

I LOVE THIS CAR! Bought it about6 months ago after a tragic accident with my 2004 A4 3.0. I have always loved the styling of these cars and now I am in love with the performance! The drive is smooth and my 3.2 v6 engine is powerful, I think I forgot how to drive slow. The interior is a little snug, but I forget about that when no one is in the backseat. After this car, I am an Audi loyalist for life! No mechanical problems yet, and nothing major with my 2004 A4. I am forever impressed with Audi, can't wait to try the A5 and Q5!

Most reliable car I've owned

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.

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.

It is a fine car except for two things - see below

Every time you go over a 'speed bump' at more than 9 miles an hour it makes a KLUNKKK as if the whole body and chassis had not been bolted or fastened to the running gear rear end. I returned it to the dealer and let the service manager drive it and he even admitted it was loud but told me all were like that. He said he could help it some, so he took the car into the shop and brought it back a few minutes later and then left for the day. I asked the service rep what he did and he said he let some air out of the tires. Two of my wife's friends will no longer ride with her, they think it is unsafe. Secondly the wheels are dirty from brake dust 30 miles after you have had it washed.

Most, fun, exciting and reliable car I've ever own

I absolutily love this car. I bought it pre-owned and have had just as much enjoyment from it as my 2000 A4. This is the best vehicle I've owned. Most of my previous cars ahve been American built and this is a far supirior to any others. It's not only reliable, but a fun car to drive, and when you spend 10% of your waking hours driving somewhere it is great.

In love with an Audi!

BEST CAR I'VE EVER HAD. It's my baby. I love it with all my heart and I never want another type of car. It is the most solid car I've ever had and i feel extremely safe when driving it.

Smooth,solid,precise and powerful

I bought a 'leftover"2006 A4 with the 3.2 liter engine in November 2006 for about $31,500. Can't imagine better bang for buck. Wanted the 300 HP 335 BMW but also wanted to keep 10 plus grand in the bank.This car in sport mode feels almost (but is not) as fast. Fit and finish is second to none.The engine sound is awesome and it is quite poweful.The ride is solid and smooth.It corners with confidence.It is extremely quiet for it's size(I traded out of a 2004 Infinity G35 coupe because that car was too loud for my daily long commute). My only gripe is the lame styling. NOTE:Value for the money depends on what price you negotiate. Based on MSRP only the Japanese -Infinity G35 and Lexus IS350 have the Germans beat. Audi (and BMW)should be willing to negotiate. NOTE:I gave less than perfect score on reliability based on other reviews , not personal experience with Audi.
