Great car, but with some minor issues

Cons

All issues are minor

Excellent Car — Simple things like arm rest and glovebox malfunctions can get under your skin. Overlook minor issues and realize it's a reliable strong car that will go anywhere in any weather and do so with ease. Fits a family well, decent fuel economy. Solid car.

Gerald The Audi — Performance - very quick and very good on braking and a comfort to drive. You don't really hear the engine when it has warmed up and it sticks to the road. Smooth to drive, but two disadvantages to bulky and too long

Pros

If you want 50% luxury and 50% performance...this car is literally perfect. It is a sexy ride that is incredibly comfortable, but has enough performance to be fun anytime in any weather.

Cons

From a performance perspective, it is waaay to heavy. Parts are expensive for a young owner. It could be a bit faster (not like I need any more speeding tickets...lol)

My 2003 Audi A4 3.0 Quattro (6-speed...no Other Way To Go...haha) — As to performance, It isn't the fastest car on the block, but with the 3.0L V6 paired with the quattro all wheel drive, it hooks up like it's nothing. Your mustang may out pull me all day when it's dry, but I can launch at 5k rpm in the pouring rain all day and hug the road like nothing! That being said, it is great in the snow too...on snowy pavement...it might as well be a 4x4 truck. Build quality? it's an audi...it's freakin awesome...nuf said Appearance...not the sportiest, but I get compliments from both men and especially women on it's looks. I'd like to make some changes up front, but I love how it looks from the back. Cost of ownership? Sigh....being 22 and in college, it is admittedly expensive! Just replaced my first clutch for 1,300...yeah...not cheap! This car is luxurious all the time and fun when I want it to be. The girlfriend loves it! All in all, it has been a great car!

Great styling and handling needs a few more power upgrades and its perfect.

Cons

Great Looking Car — My only complaints is Audi didnt have enough power from stock but its not hard to get more power from a turbo car.. I love the exhaust notes and cant wait to keep upgrading. An APR ecu chip and injector upgrade should be sufficient for now.

Nice Handling And Gas Mileage But A Maintenace Nightmare — Not sure what those German engineers were thinking, but this thing is a maintenance nightmare. Not only does it have constant problems, but the repairs are extremely expensive due to the lack of thought during the design phase about ease of maintenance.

First Class!! — A complete package.. Power, handling and a good sports package.. Suited for all weather.. Great specifications.. Nice interior.. Luxurious enough.. Good road grip.. The brakes are not exceptional, but they do get the car to the desired halt.. The best car that I have owned so far!!

It's Audi — to be honest, keep away from Audi, if you aren't going to buy a extended warranty on it, repair cost is very expensive, otherwise, this years' Audi A4 would be faultless. I do enjoy the turbo and the Quattro, no matter what the weather is ...

Great Car — One of the best cars that I have ever owned. Great in the snow, great on gas, fun to drive, great features and would still be in my garage if it wasn't for the deer that stood in the middle of the bypass.

Awesome! — The car is awesome, a bit too heavy for the corners, but it is a fun car with a manual gearbox. Whether you drive it in the sun, rain, or snow, it's really a great all around kind of car.
