2004 Audi A4 Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 38 reviews
Family car or personal status symbol, the Audi A4 is Audi's most economically-oriented model, offering a precision driving experience with high-end comfort and elegance inside. And whatever your purpose, the A4 has a model to suit you -- from practical family wagon, to a more classic four-door sedan, or the let-your-hair down-because-it's-the-weekend convertible.
Finally, AWD is available in all A4s in 2004, as the Cabriolet gets a quattro version. Also new in the 2004 Audi A4 are standard tire pressure monitors in all trims. The 1.8T receives an upgrade to 16-inch wheels and you have the option of a 6-speed manual. That means all A4s offer standard 5-speed manual, and optional 6-speed manual or Tiptronic auto. The CVT, continuously variable transmission, is offered in only front-wheel drive A4s and not the quattro.
The starter A4 is the budget-minded 1.8-liter, 170-hp Turbo, available as either a sedan, wagon, or convertible. Though a lot less expensive than the 3.0-liter, 220-hp V6 models, it offers comparable standard features, such as dual climate control, power windows and locks, fog lights, keyless entry, and cruise control. Leather seats, power sunroof, and power adjustable front seats are options, but one complaint about Audi is that adding options or engine upgrades is expensive. All 2004 A4s feature front and side airbags, ABS brakes,and traction control, and Audi always gets rated highly for safety.
The 2004 A4 is a great sturdy family car, loved for its confident steering and handling and the quattro's surefire ability in snow or on rough roads. Most drivers suggest getting a quattro, and to always get a manual transmission. Inside, owners love the comfort and interior layout and all the standard features. The CVT auto tran is considered smooth once you get the hang of it. Drawbacks to the Audi A4 include a rear blind spot caused by the rear headrests, faulty cupholders, a sometimes suspect electrical system, wind noise, and an underpowered 1.8T. And unfortunately, expensive parts and unhelpful Audi staff also seem to be a trademark of Audi.
