Reliable German Engineering — My 05 A4 survived great in Alaska and never left me stranded. The power lacks a bit since it has less than 200HP but I am very impressed with the awd feature and the quality german engineering so much that I bought an additional A4.

Fun And Sporty Convertible, Great Gas Mileage Back Seat Is Big Enough! — Red leather is great, heated seats are best I have ever sat in. Great handling and tight steering. Looks great on the road, gets compliments. Top is very easy to clean. Overall, great car. Quattro is a great benefit especially in the winter.

Pros

Incredible AWD system produces awesome performance and handling.  Great winter car.  Meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of the engineering.

Cons

I always brought the car to the dealership for every service, and needless to say, Audi parts are not cheap.  And the dealerships really get you on the service costs.

An Outstanding Automobile, Year-round — Audi knows what they are doing when it comes to AWD sedans. The Quattro system is a joy to drive in the winter time and contributes to the vehicles exceptional handling during the summer time. This is an incredible vehicle, year-round.

Pros

This is just an all around great car. Classy looking and comfortable to drive in. Fuel economy is fantastic. Also for a 2.0 turbo this car has some pickup.

The interior is fantastic! Leather seats all around and plenty of comfort features.

Cons

The only problem I have with this car is the problem I have with Audi's overall. The cost of maintenance. Luckily I haven't to do much to this car but I think it's ridiculous.

Great Small, Luxury Car... — This is a great smaller, luxury car. The ride is great. I'm always comfortable. Lot's of pickup for a 2.0T. The fuel economy is what really impresses me. Interior and exterior leave me with no complaints. Personally I think Audi makes a great car with this year and model.

2005 Audi A4 2.0 Turbo — This is my first Audi, but I'm certain not my last. I drive 154 miles round trip each day for work and I average 31mpg. It would be nice if the maintenance was less expensive, but I suppose it's worth it as much as I commute.

Great handling and really quick for a 4 cyl turbo

Cons

I can't find many, maybe that the service on Audi's is a little pricey.

Best Car I've Ever Owned. — I've always wanted a GTI and after driving a few found that I wanted something a little more "grown up" than a dressed up Golf so I started looking at the A4. This car is always fun to drive in any weather, gets great mileage and has a ton of power for the size of the car. The other upside of this car is the incredible German engineering that is found all through the car, I mean, who puts drawers under the front seats? Great idea!

Love It — The looks were fantastic, always had a love for this styling, especially with the wrap, this car as an easy head turner, grabs a lot of attention and always spotting people staring at our car lol. I love this car.

A Great Car For Long Distance Drives To The Mountains. — Great performance for 30 mpg. Now every other company is installing Turbo chargers in their cars. Handles like a sports car and drives quietly and comfortably. The 4-link suspension and performance tires grip the road, you'll never hear a sequel out of your tires around turns. I can't drive this car to it's full potential as the Highway Patrol has been out on 88 in force, Rats!. Audi built these cars to drive 100,000 miles before any major repairs. Handles well in the snow with the Quattro drive-train.
