2014 Audi A4 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat A4 received prominent styling updates for 2013, with the majority of changes done to the front end. The A4 is offered only as a sedan; the former Avant wagon was replaced last year by the Allroad wagon, which is based on the A4 and covered separately in the Cars.com Research section. Audi also offers a performance version of the sedan dubbed S4, also covered separately.

The A4, available with front- or all-wheel drive, competes with the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class and is available in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige price levels.

In a shuffling of standard and optional features, the Convenience Package (Bluetooth, Homelink garage door opener, Audi music interface and driver information system) is now standard on the base Premium model. A new S Line Style Package for the Premium includes xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, LED running lights and taillights, automatic headlight leveling and other exterior enhancements.

Constant Breakdowns

Did all the recommended maintenance, and yet the breakdowns are increasing to about every 2-3 months. The fuel pump alone has been replaced 5 times in a 13 month period. 5 TIMES. I am now friends with the neighborhood tow guy (he had no idea who I was when I drove Japanese cars) and I have an account at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. It is so bad that I am considering voluntary repossession with my bank. It's a fun, stylish ride but should be used more as a side car than your daily driver.


Audi_ Machine

It is a great car to drive, great performance but very expensive repairs, anything outside the warranty costs 4 figures. Also not all Audi dealers are honest. I spent this year $3k for repairs but could have gotten it done for less than $2k had I shopped with other Audi dealers.


Great Car

2nd owner - Certified Pre Owned - Kirkwood Audi - all maintenance performed at dealership. Perfect, classy car for the young professional or college student.
