"I'm the second owner of this 2005 A4 1.8Turbo. Gas mileage has been fantastic at 30 city, 36 hwy. The turbo is really fun to use and has plenty of power. The CVT transmission is incredibly smooth. Had a few nagging problems like the airbag light and rattles."
"The car is solid and nice designed interior and exteriors. I have one with a sport seat very similar to a porsches car. Very fast for the 3.0 engine. Excellent response to the throttle position.
A little hard to view when back up with the top on. Couples of minor repair since I bought it, but I would considered them minors not worth mention here in the review since they are paid for by Audi.
Overall, I am very happy with the car. Audi has improved a lot. Especially, the engine and auto/manual shifting. It is a joy driving this convertible with lots of room for four and a large trunk for its class. Better than Honda S2000 or BMW320CI that I test drove before bought this one, the Audi A4."
"I am driving this car now for 3 years without having ever had a single problem. It is sporty and fun to drive and even gets reasonably good milage - although not as good if driven in S-mode - however hard to resist !"
"This is my 3rd Avant, and the best. Lighter and quicker than the A6, but just as quiet and comfortable. This 2.0t engine is unbelievable..torque and HP; 27mpg around town, 31-2 hwy. I've had no problems, and love to drive this car; anytime!
I've driven in near-blizzards, and aside from sheer stopping (no vehicle has good braking control in these conditions), the traction is super. In all conditions, the car imparts confidence and control. This is the best vehicle I've ever had."
