Great — Expensive to maintain. Reliable car. Handles very nice. A little older look. So much fun to drive. Great gas mileage. Lots of room. Good brakes. Buttons lose color rather quickly. Instrument cluster pixels burn as car gets old. Too many sensors.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good handling.

Cons: High maintenance

A4 Rules, Wish The Gas Milage Did — I bought my A4 in 2013 certified pre-owed. Its has ran like a top for the most part, but ANY repairs will cost you an arm and a leg at a good Audi Mechanic. Do yourself a favor and learn how to fix it yourself or get used to muti-thousand dollar repair bills. Anything beyond an oil change starts at $1000 and goes up from there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All wheel drive handling. Eats snow like a snow plow. Looks pretty.

Cons: averages 19-21mpg. A new Ford F250 gets better gas mileage :( and good Audi mechanics cost more than good lawyers. Learn how to fix it yourself.

My 9th Audi — nice smooth car, defo could do with a remap to around 205bhp from standard 150. Still nice smooth power delivery as standard. Sport models handly nice, not to much lean like the SE model i once had. Easily capable of 155mph

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

7/10, Safe, Not Great For Cost Of Ownership,( Unless You Get One Free Like Me) No Style —

My first car, given to me free by my awesome uncle when he got a new BMW. Needed a lot of pricey repairs for uncommon breaking parts. My uncle and aunt bought it in 2001 new and kept it in great shape and when they had my cousin to my surprise they decided to give me( and eventually my sister when she got old enough) the car. They did all the routine maintenance and had the engine replaced at 80,000 miles due to a recall issue so I had a very well maintained luxury car with an engine with 20,000 miles on it for a 1st car! I could had been happier of more thankful seeing as I pay my own gas and Insurance which was a lot of a 16 year old male. But, fate works in weird ways and on I-95 going south to a school function a car blew its tire and flipped in front of me. Thanks to this cars ABS I was able to slow down very fast and avoid the flipping car, but the Ford F-150 behind me could not stop as fast as my Audi and Totaled my car. Thank fully no body was hurt and the ford owners insurance payed for the cost of my car seeing as I only had liability and not collision insurance(which I had dropped 2 weeks before the accident due to cost). It was a great cost while it lasted. out of 10 Performance - acceleration(7) because of the Tiptronic shifting and Turbo, braking(8) , handling(7) Build Quality - has it needed repairs?Many, and was not rated well by consumer reports (5) squeaks/rattles(10) none Appearance - both interior(10) leather and all of the interior was spotless and exterior styling(7) only because there was not a scratch on that car but it lacked style, would have really like to have installed a body kit/ Cost of Ownership - gas mileage (6) Highway(23-22) City 20-18, maintenance(2) Audi's prices we insane and there was a lot of mechanical problems that really no other cars have Fun Factor - is this car fun to drive? yes, would have been better had I been able to tune it and not have to get rid of it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great cargo space with folding rear seats that I could fit my surf boards in the car, but if I had a choice I would have not had it for a first car because it had to many problems, It was costly to fix and maintain, It used PREMIUM gas, and was pretty plain, Great car for a single person/ small family but not a college or high school age kid that has to pay to use it, If your rich, well that's a different story.

Cons: As far as Audi goes, I was impressed, and maybe will buy one in the future, after college and if I can afford it. Just remember these cars need some serious dough to keep in good running order.

Just Cause You Can Afford One Dont Mean You Can Maintain One. — Performance - pretty decent power from a 4 banger in a pretty heavy car, AWD works great in snow and rain Build Quality - Pretty reliable if one maintain them properly and in a timely matter Appearance - A lil old school for a 2001 car (which i like), interior is solid look pretty plain Cost of Ownership - ave 19 mpg (mostly local driving) 3.5 star out of % to maintain Fun Factor:2 out of 5 star in normal condition 3 out of 5 star in snow/rain

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It AWD so i can hit the slope whenever, and have a very good sound system (Bose). Very large trunk space for a small sedan.

Cons: The maintenance cost to run the car is a bit high (it ok for me cuz i work on my own car and i am a automotive tech), the handling is a bit off since the car is very front heavy. understeer at high speed.  Fuel economy is not all that great must refill every 9 days.

The Best Car In Its Class! — The performance of my Audi A4 2.8 AWD sedan was always above my expectations, even until it's very last moments. The end of the life of this car was due only to driver error. It accelerated well, stopped on a dime, and cornered like a champ. She was as stable at extremely high speeds as she was driving around town. the only maintenance issues it ever had were standard, but at any rate, it is a bit costly to drive any european car. the standard maintenance costs, however, were easily outweighed by this cars drivability, reliability, and safety. being in the accident i was in, I rolled it 3 times, and came out without a scratch, I can safely say that had I been in anything but this car, I probably would have died!

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

Pros: it was awesome to drive, and always an eye catcher!

Cons: It was TOO FUN to drive ;)

All Around Good Car — Performance and handling is great on this car, but repairs can be expensive. Gas can also be expensive if drive the v6 manual which recommand premium fuel. Interior is one of the reasons i bought the car, with all blk leather and woodgrain.

Pros: Performance and interior

Cons: repairs can be expensive

Best Car I've Ever Owned So Far — Awesome handling with AWD Will go anywhere in harsh winter weather black rims and low pro tires in the summer Maintenance is high but if you know the right mechanic and maintain it properly it will outlast your expectations for a while!

Pros: Handling is superior

Cons: Maintenance

If You Can Afford The Maintnance And Gas, You'll Enjoy This Car For A Long Time. — 2.8L engine is more than adequate to power this solid machine. Build quality is among the best. Classic styling, truly timeless. If maintained properly, car will drive forever, but the occasional repair is costly. Gas mileage is mediocre. Rear seat legroom is not the best. Fun to drive, considering it is a four door sedan.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Prestige, luxury, driving experience.

Cons: Cost of ownership
