Expensive to fix
Honestly I got unlucky with mine. It’s a fabulous car in that the performance, comfort and design are amazing for the price but don’t buy one with more than 50k miles. Mine has 74k miles now and I’m staring to have all sorts of problems. Nothing engine related but stuff like sensors no longer functioning properly coolant leakage problems and the little cherry on top was my dsg failing. $5,500 for a new mechatronics unit and now I still have to replace or rebuild my trans. Another $4000 at least. Somehow when researching this car I didn’t realize how it isn’t too uncommon for this cars dsg to just completely fail around 70k-100k miles. Some people’s have even failed before reaching 50k miles. So make sure your trans is in good condition before buying one of these used. Or make sure you have some sort of an extended warranty!
Great fun car
Great car and fun to drive. Also has kept up with newer car standards somewhat and does not truly seem or feel like an 8 year old car. However I am ready for an upgrade. Overall fast cool fun car and pretty reliable for the most part.
Best all-around everyday car I've ever driven
The Audi S4 is the total package! Great fun, super quick, head turner, fuel efficient and totally reliable. I drove this car with my friends and, no joke, I know 7 people who purchased an S4 after they drove mine. It's THAT great.
