Cute Car — Nice car that is reliable. A tad expensive for repairs but nice car in general. The car is comfortable and roomy. Cargo area has more room than you would think! Lots of room for bringing anquiqes home. It handles super in snow!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Really nice, quality car.  Handles smoothly.  Steering is solid.

Cons: Not great on gas but it is a v6.

Almost The Perfect Car —

This car really is ALMOST the best sort of car for me, and for a lot of people in my opinion. Its small, but it can fit 4 people (5 in a pinch), but the people in the back should be under 5' 8", otherwise its a squeeze. Its easy to park because of it's small size, good turn lock, and visibility. The 2.8 quattro 5-speed variation is fun to drive and plenty fast (it has a sweet exhaust note above 4,500 RPM), albeit it is extremely hard to find this specific trim of A4. The car is everything you would want in a personal transportation vehicle, wrapped up in the Audi name, but has slightly more affordable maintenance costs than its rivals (BMW, Mercedes) because of the fact that it shares a lot of components with the Volkswagen Passat and Volkswagens in general--but don't misunderstand--it is not CHEAP at all, but it isn't outrageously expensive either if you buy aftermarket and/or do the work yourself. All in all, I recommend this car to people who are looking for a nice car for under $6,000, who can bare with the around $1,000 a year average money spent on maintenance, less if you work on it yourself. (Synthetic Oil Changes are around $80). Other choices are C-Class, E-Class, 3 Series, and 5 Series. Happy car hunting!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: pretty quick, good high and low speed handling, smooth ride, fun to drive, comfortable, good looking, practical, nice steering feel, good 5-speed shift feel, good turning radius, easily maneuverable

Cons: expensive to fix with mechanics, expensive OEM parts, not very good fuel economy with V6, takes premuim gasoline, below-average reliability, rear seat legroom

Well equipped, reliable car. Fantastic value for what you get, heated sport seats, plenty of cargo room, and a torquey, efficient 4 cylinder. Compared to my 2002 Mercedes Benz E320 Wagon, it is a lot ... Read More

Everything is as out dated as the 2008 audi.. Being a Quatro you will need to replace all 4 tires as the threads fall below 3/32, front breaks steered to the right when applied, meaning rotors will ne... Read More
