Best of Both Worlds
Pros: Quattro all wheel drive. There is nothing like it.
Cons: Rear leg roomI ordered the S4 in August 2003 and it arrived in november. Brilliant Red with black Napa leather. This car has some of the softest leather seats in the market. The interior is world class and nothing is this price range even comes close. The car handles great and it can tackle any kind of weather, which is a mayor plus during the rainy season. The car has been extremely reliable during its 6.5 years. I think this is the first car I will keep for ten years. In the past ten years I've owned several cars including Mercedes Benz, BMW, Acura, Lexus, VW and Infinity. My experience leads me to believe that Audi's are the best built luxury cars for the money. The Lexus LS 430 was reliable, but expensive to maintain and boring to drive. The Mercedes and the BMW had some reliability issues. The VW Touareg V8 has been an excellent SUV with only minor interior durability issues. The infinity has been reliable but its design was getting old quickly. Next year I will trade the VW Touareg for an Audi Q5. If you buy a used S4, make sure it has been well maintained (consult the service department) and you will enjoy it for many years.
Pros: A high precision german car
Cons: a high precision german carA nice drive. Very good performance, looks great. Better than expected gas miles. But, it is a european high precision vehicle, so it will cost you more to own than an one from asia. Routine maintenance it at a dealer will cost you an arm and a leg. A major repair will result in the exchange of your 1st born child. Other than that, a great car.
Pros: Awd quattro engine
Cons: Owner costsVery nice car. Quattro handling in the ice and snow is better than any AWD vehicle I have ever driven. The only downside is maintenance costs. Wish I was offered Audi care when I purchased it
