Terrific vehicle

Traded a Porsche Boxster for my 2011 Audi A4 Premium Plus with the Bang and Olufsen Stereo. 6 speed give you some go when you need it. Seating is comfortable for longer rides, controls are easy to figure out. Bang & Olufsen is only 3/4 working but will be fixed soon. It still rocks. I've owned Porsche, BMW, Acura, Volvo, and others. This may be the overeall best car I've owned. Plenty of go, but I got 33 mpg on my first trip and it's not even broken in yet. A5 looks nicer by a little, but I've got 4 doors and still get comments about what a beautiful car it is. Love it.

Great decision

I decided to go the premium plus package with the 18" wheels which gave the car a slightly sportier look. I love how it rides. At first it takes a few days for the car to adjust to your driving style but after that it's smooth sailing. Probably my favorite thing about this car is how they combined sexy sleek designs with sufficient power while still maintaining fuel economy. I literally traveled from Texas to Indiana and only had to stop for gas once. Great fun ride! One fairly noteworthy issue I have is the lack of backseat legroom... you can adjust the front seats to allow for some space but it really is a joke if you have the front seats in any sort of reclined position. (I am 6'3" so perhaps that is also part of my problem). The only other minor issue is the cupholder count... there's two up front but one is designed for like a can of red bull... I know... not too big of a deal, but when you and your passenger both have regular sized drinks one of you will have to hold the cup or drop the back seat center arm rest down to utilize those cupholders... once again, I do realize this is quite petty but still worth making note of.

Great Car

by from Raleigh, NC on July 29, 2011

Great car! I love the look, performance and options of the S-line and the wagon is practical, too. The only negative (and I've reflected this in my reliability rating) is that these 2.0 TSFI engines normally use a little oil. Audi service department will top off for free between scheduled maintenance.

Nice car but missing some features that other cars in it's price range have as standard equipment. Like the four cyl turbo and mpg. Design is very good. Have this car on a lease as Audis tend to have problems as they get older. So far a very nice car.

2011 Audi A4 Avant

by from Calgary, AB on July 16, 2012

excellent highway mileage, performance, comfort (after a 5-day drive) styling, fit & finish, sound (B&O). The MMI is complicated, but ultimately effective, if you refer to the manual. So far, so good!

I have been driving my 2011 Audi A4 for about a year now and i have enjoyed most of the experience. The car has been very reliable I have not had to have it in the shop much. The only issue I've had with mine is a bad/failed fuel pump. This happened in the cold months when it got down to -20's degrees. I spent $1000 to get that fixed. The only other issue I have with this car is the oil consumption. I noticed this problem when I started reading more online about Maintenance and common issues with these cars. Luckily Audi finally released a recall for this issues in Aug 2014 that covers this issues at no cost till 80k miles. I brought my car in for oil consumption tests at my nearest Audi dealer. It failed the first test after 600mi when the oil light came on again. They replaced the crank case seals and crank shaft bolt. All under warranty. I am bringing the car back to the dealer in May to have the second part of the warranty work done. I believe they will be replacing piston rods, seals, or heads, or something of that matter. If you own or are buying one of these cars, make sure you have this warranty recall work done before 80k miles. If you are buying an A4, check to make sure this work has been done, or make sure your mileage is under 80K. Otherwise it will not be covered by Audi. In conclusion, I love my A4. It is a beautiful, timeless car. You will have higher maintenance costs being that it is a foreign vs domestic car, but that is a trade off for quality engineering and design. As a 23 year old young man, I get a lot of head turns driving this car and that speaks for itself.

Best car so far

I was very lucky to find a 2011 A4, Premium Plus with under 10,000 miles for a very reasonable price. The upgraded wheels change th whole look of the car. So far this car is very comfortable up front. Not much space in the rear for family memebers if you have them. I would not recommend this car for someone with a few teenage children that have to get in and out of the back seat. The ride is very smooth and, if you kick in the turbo, this car can fly. It a real head turner and I look forward to many years of comfort an enjoyment.
