"This is my fourth S4. (I still have my 1993 100 CS Quattro, and it continues to purr with over 120,000 miles.) Audi's are great cars. Just traded in my 2000 S4 for a 2004. Don't like having to fill the tank as often, but it's my only complaint. These cars are stylish, fast, and reliable - especially in the snow states. I am also a shorter female and can reach all the component without the steering wheel nudging into me. The older S4's will have the quattro as opposed to the upgraded V8 engine, so the car has a differnent feel on fast excelleration. But the sport mode is a nice option."
Pros: "good value, very solid german car, amazing perform"
Cons: "the cup holder isn't the best, but who cares!"

"The car is amazing in every way possible. Its like driving a porsche with 4 doors and cargo room. THe power is amazing, the growl is awesome, and the quattro drives thru everything. I wish they still made a wagon version, because I need a larger car now, and may have to trade this one in soon to get more room; maybe I'll wait until they make the wagon again! You won't regret the purchase!"
"I have owned this car for 5 years now and never had one problem with it. It is incredibly fast, great handling, sexy and the REAL Recaro seats are so comfortable. The only negative is it is a real gas guzzler due to the V-8. But, its one of a rare bread at this point and worth owning.I never keep a car more than 3 years but this is the exception."
"After braving a Cleveland winter with this car, I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. This car has a nice weight about it and always feels solid and secure, I drove through blizzards with my all season tires and I was never worried. The V8 sounds great (exhaust could be louder IMHO), the ride is quiet, interior quality is top notch and styling still looks modern. For the money it is a challenge to find a nicer enthusiast car, with all the safety and creature comforts. I am not bothered by the lower MPG's because the car is worth it, I get a smile on my face every time I get to smash the accelerator."
