"I bought my A4 Q new for about $35K. Have owned just about every higher-end import out there, and this car is, by far, the best one. Serves as my second car. Has 108K on it and still feels new. I have serviced it by the book and just replaced the clutch for the first time. Extremely reliable and GREAT in inclement weather. I have a vacation home in the mountains and have never had to chain-up (even when I was "required" to do so). Have considered letting it go many times, but just can't do it. I only wish that the power window buttons would stop peeling."
Pros: "safe, reliable, fast, gorgeous. U get what u pay 4"
Cons: "expensive up front, but the investment pays u back"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Beautiful, fun to drive, reliable, safe - feels like a turbo-charged little tank on the highway even if in a snowstorm. Always heads where you want to go fast and stable no matter the weather conditions.
You get what you pay for - we bought it new from the dealer in 2002 for $32K and kept every service interval - and have been rewarded by a perfect driving experience in return. Fit and finish is what one expects from the top German auto manufacturers - and after 14 years this car can go on for another 14 years. Audi/VW/Porsche sure know what they're doing."
