"This car was one I always wanted. It's got some performace out of the box, but still is a perfect for a daily driver. Great for going camping, and you can drive with confidence in the snow. If its got more than 90k miles I would suggest not buying unless you don't mind getting your hands dirty. Don't get me wrong it's still a reliable car but the repair costs are are pretty expensive. If your a DYI this would be a perfect car for you. This car has so much petential for more performance with the 2.0T models. I would refer this car to anyone that doesn't mind working on it themselves. Easy to work on!"

Problem plagued - wouldn't recommend!

"Unfortunately, I have owned two Audi's and I find them to be problem plagued and expensive to repair. My experience has been consistent with my impression of Audis over the years. I made the mistake of believing the product reviews that indicated that Audi had made significant strides in improving reliability. I have come to the conclusion that Audi has found some way to "game" the rating system because they certainly don't live up to expectations. I also believe that because Audi has obviously become the current "fashion statement" on the road that owners tend prefer to sing their praises rather than admit that they made a mistake. Then again, if you're only leasing one for three years while its on full warranty, then who cares?"

"Have had this car for almost 5 years. LOVE driving it in the spring and fall. Very nimble handling and the sport mode really makes it seem like a roadster.....all while having the refined Audi looks."

"Smaller engine with turbo makes for a good balance of fuel economy and performance; Had the car for a while so replaced motor mounts and timing belt. Not cheap. My complaints: glove compartment hinge (almost all 07 a4's i've seen have broken hinges), battery is at the back of the engine ( you'll hurt your back replacing the battery if you're not careful), cigarette lighter plug beneath arm rest is a bit hard to acces. Also the A4 may be a bit small for me. At 6` my right knee is touching the main console. Overall a fun car to drive but may not be the right car for a DIY or someone who keeps their car for a long time."
