Stunner on the road, but underpowered as a machine. In city/hwy mix, haven't gotten more than 21mpg, around 20 mostly, on premium gas. Convert has limited head room, and despite many seat settings, none seem all that comfortable. Back seat is unusable, even for kids. Real lack of interior storage space. Uses oil as if it is leaking out, ("usual, with turbos", what?!). Carry two quarts in my trunk. This car is on lease, around $600 a month, with additional mileage. I am looking forward to returning it and pocketing the difference in the cost of my next car. Most cars start out as "my new car", become "my car" after the bloom is off the rose and finally becomes "my *** car". I am at that stage now, after 30 months of leasing. This car is like the experience of being married to a beautiful but contentious spouse. Performance ultimately undermines appearance.
I can honestly say that I love driving my car everyday. I wake up everyday with a big smile on my face as I walk to my Audi A4 in the garage knowing that my 30 minute drive to work will be in style and comfort. The car fits like a glove and drives itself and I am just amazed at the all leather interior and Bose sound system as I am rockin' away through traffic on the interstate. The car handles VERY well as I recently was driving back to Atlanta from vacation. I was on the interstate and following behing this truck which was pulling a trailer with coiled hoses on the back. I was driving 80 mph when the coils popped and started to unwind and fall off of the trailer. I was in the far left lane and swerved to get out of the way with a hard jerk to the left on the steering wheel. The cars response was smooth and controlled as I drove around the debris in front of me. I had not even had the car for a month and it had already saved my life. The tires never spun out nor did the brakes lock up. Outstanding suspension and control and the car kept going as if nothing had happened. Truly amazed at the performance of the A4. I can only imagine what the A5 and A6 have to offer. I am definately hooked on the Audi brand. I love my car.
Great milage on gas, looks great, just the car I wanted
