This is my 4th Audi A4 and they are great cars. This latest model does not seem to be as well built as my previous A4. Nothing major, it just feels "cheaper". The steering was off center when delivered and I still have a rattle in the drivers door area that I have given up with. Also the boot mechanism has started to creak after a couple of months use. Pedals are offset and make the driving position hard to get used to. Having said that I still love the car. The 1.8T FSI engine is a real peach with an excellent gear box and handling.

This model had injector problems. no warning failure resulting in total power loss - extremely dangerous. after 2 occurrences audi replaced all 4 injectors. I was charged ł750 for first failure but got money back. audi's handling of this issue was atrocious. it was covered up for 12 months despite vosa being aware. Audo franchise maintenance charges are sky high. I use local garage. despite careful driving 12000 miles is max mileage from front tyres.

It's an audi... not a lot more to be said! it starts first time... and runs like a dream. It's such a beautiful car to drive, that it is worth the running costs... fuel costs same as my hyundai getz... not had it long enough to need to buy tyres etc yet... plus it just needs serviced once every 2 years. The car is a high performance car so it's acceleration is good... powerful v6 engine...3 ltr.

Generally very good, although it does have one or two things that are more complicated than needed. i.e. Electronic Parking Brake & Key.
There is no room to put your Left Foot when driving as there is a large tunnel that gets in the way. This makes long distance driving painful.

Very well built. Very good interior dasign. Fairly hard ride. Audi have never found out how to make a car ride and handle properly, though some more recent models are better. Reliable, although mine has done a mere 31000 miles.

Great value car when bought second hand at auction. To be fair I was aware of most of its limitationswhen I bought it, not that there are many. Very happy - can't believe it is six years old this year given the condition!

Audi RS4 Avant is an absolutely fantastic car but pricey as an every day commuter and on business trips. Never missed a beat and can outperform everything this side of a full blown supercar on the open road.

Its a brilliant peice of engineering that stands up to todays driving conditions and safety standards. Its a fine balance between style, performance and economy that gives u one of the best cars to drive.

The car is a cabriolet and is very enjoyable to drive, and has been reliable , except for a couple of electronic sensors. It is built well and performance is good. I would buy another audi.

Not long had the car but so far a vast improvement on the last car we had. Still getting used to the throttle but so far impressed particularly with the motorway performance.

Engine is good however there have been many niggles with electric windows, wipers, heating controls. I try to do work myself, parts are readily available and prices ok.

My perfect car, although it did not handle as well as expected in the recent snow, tended to slide around a bit, and did not grip too well.

An excellent and smooth performer, This was a deliberate attempt to downsize a bit, I just miss the extra which the A6 provides.
