"I absolutely love my 2005 A4 Quattro. I have the automatic with the smaller 1.8T engine. I love this car! The only issues with the interior is the cup holder (as mentioned) when your center console is closed or in the upright position you only have 1 cup holder. Additionally, the hinges on the glovebox are plastic and break very easily (at least on my model). Be careful not to press down on the glovebox door when opening. I would recommend changing your own oil (or having it changed at an AUDI dealership) I tried several local shops none of which did a very good job...If you decide to do it on your own use only a high quality full synthetic (refer to the owners manual). I have also had issues with ignition coils (I was told this is common with this model) do not bring it to shop! This is a $30 part at Autozone that takes seconds to replace on your own (there are several videos on YouTube). I made this mistake and paid the shop $250 twice to replace 2 separate coils...Great Car, my only advice would be to do your research before paying for repairs. Mine has over 150,000 and still runs great!"

"The least dependable car I've ever come across. People warned me to stay away from Audi's because of their expensive repair costs and unreliability. I should have listened. So many problems and I've only made it to 69,000 miles. If I were to keep it for another 69,000 miles, I would probably spend more in repairs than the original cost of the car. Not even kidding."

"I have owned my Audi A4 Quattro from fresh off the truck until now, for 7 years and 90,000 miles. This has been a great car to me. I have only had a few minor repairs, which I would expect with any car. I guess the only early repair we had was doing motor mounts, which I suppose could wear sooner with the 6 speed manual, which is what I drive. I am very happy with the quality of the interior, the styling, the comfort, and all the cool little "extras" this car offers. Everything is conformed well to the driver. I would absolutely buy another Audi A4."

"This automobile is as solid today as the day that I took delivery of it. Most impressed with the gas mileage and cost of ownership. This is the a super value in automobiles. The only maintenance done to this car is the recommended service in the owners manual. My only complaint is the size which I can very easily solve by moving up to the A6 (although I would love to have an A8). I would most certainly have another!"
