Pros

Handling is great.  The overall driving dynamics are superb. Get one with the Sport Package.  I bit rougher on bumps but worth it in looks and better handling.  The car has excellent exterior paint.  It cleans up nicely and many people can't believe it is 12 years old.

Cons

Requires a lot of maintenance. If you don't have the mechanical aptitude to do some of your own repairs, I would not recommend this car.  Mechanic hourly rates applied to this car will kill a budget quickly. Otherwise, there is a vast amount of info on the net and parts are cheaper ordered on-line from various suppliers.  Stay away from the CVT transmission.  5 speed manual preferred.

Great Car If You Don't Mind Keeping Up With The Annoying Need To Fix It Often. — I bought this car new in 02. It now has 220K miles and still runs, drives and handles much like it did when new. Consumes no oil. Synthetic oil is a must. Keeping up with the maintenance will go a long way to keep it going strong. Still, there will be annoying things happening all the time. Stay on top of them. My ex wanted the car when we split up. After only six months of her running cheap gas, ignoring all the maint, check engine light and a bad coil pack. It finally left her stranded. I traded (Mazda5) with her and spent several hundred dollars and many days getting it back in shape. That was at approx 140K miles. I have since put in a new clutch, 3rd timing belt, front wheel bearing, new radiator, new wheels, brakes (replace brake fluid every 2 years). Great car for DIYers. Or a great car for the mechanic's purse if you own one and don't have a set of metric tools.

Pros

It's fun to drive. Period. Lot's of little bells and whistles. For a car of this age it's still a winner.

Cons

Maintenance costs. Audi is making money hand over fist.

So additional cup holders for the manual transmission model would be nice.

Nice Little Play Toy. — This car is fun to drive. Zips in and out of traffic with no problem. Steady and powerful pickup for a smaller car. The overall look and feel of the vehicle is exceptional. My only true gripe is the maintenance costs. My opinion is for older model Audi's generic, cheaper parts should be available. I know it's a luxury car but it's not Ferrari. Providing more economical parts options will entice more people to buy a used Audi. This is a common complaint of the Audi brand.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Very good on snow, great family car love the fact that i can accommodate all my family, as I used to own a honda civic an never had the space i have now.

Cons

It does kind of uses some more gas than it could prob but it is a quattro so having all wheel drive all the time has its price. either way I am very happy with my car.

Awesome — This is a German beauty all wheel drive completely dependable, ever science i bought it all I've spend on it is the usual...... Gas and Oil changes, has no problems getting around as i tend to travel 4hrs at least once a month, it does use some gas but not as much as you would think for an all wheel drive. The tires grasp to the asphalt in such a good manner that the travel is completely smooth. Love it.

02 A4 — Have enjoyed this car for 10 years. It's been reliable and great to drive. When something breaks it's expensive to fix since it seems the entire car needs to be dissembled '10lbs of car in a 5lb bag' I call it.

About My Audi A4 — Quick off the line. The AWD is awesome. Looks very good but doesnt turn heads unless you see me in the drivers seat. LOL About $40 dollars for gas sucks but worth it. Fun to drive on highway. And overall i have no trouble with it.

Audi A4 Turbo Quattro Manual Sport — If God made a car that needed to handle capably in dry weather and wet weather, as well as on snow or ice, and wanted it to have room for child seats, and look good and remain comfortable...this car would be it. Many people don't realize that there is a distinct difference between Torsen technology and ABS- or Traction Control-based AWD systems. I drive on icy and snowy roads in rural zones for months each year, and my experience is that Audi is more stable and reliable than any other AWD system I have entrusted my life to.

Sporty And Luxurious — I love my A4!! It runs strong especially in the sport gear. Eventhough it's a sporty car; it's very luxurious on the inside. My A4 has the premium package and the sport package. I bought my car used in Sept. 2006 with 39,000mi. I took a trip to the Ga mountains soon afterwards and it was a pleasure to drive on the winding roads. I haven't had any problems with the car since I've had it. (Fingers Crossed) So far so good! After I'm done with this car, I will definitely be in the market for another Audi.

Silver Blue A4 Quattro 3.0 — Low gas mileage, but great performance. Good BOSE speakers. Need GPS. Rear lights / electronics seem to be not so durable. Paid a little more than I'd like. Car is very fun to drive. Good handling.

Pros

Heated leather seats, 6-cd in-dash changer, and all-wheel drive for ferocious winters.

Cons

When it needs something, it won't shut up about it.  Puts icons front and center over all other information.  It can be a needy b**** :)  Only other thing - who puts the drink holders OVER the electronics?

My Daily Driver/track Car — Love it. Period.
