Would never buy another VAG car.
While this car has amazing looks & is beautifully appointed, electronically & mechanically it is an absolute disappointment.
Rear cross traffic alert constantly false activated & would violently apply brakes, radio would not start on previous channel, frequent false steering alerts, lane assist needs serious work, active cruise control quite painful, emergency braking honestly quite terrifying, a lot of rattles, Bang & Olufsen pretty disappointing.
Had 3 different coolant leaks, cracked ignition housing, f...
Never had a problem with this car. Been an absolute dream to drive. Cheap on petrol. I service it every 5000ks. Just clicked over 200,000ks and still running strong. Great car to own.

Pure driving pleasure
This is my first Audi and my husband and I both purchased one. Let’s just say Audi all the way! Such an amazing drive. After a year I still look forward to getting in my car. I use auto cruise control all the time and the power is mind blowing. Already planning my next Audi!
My First And Last AUDI for sure. Audi has tried to fix the transmission leak 7 times in 2 yrs and its still leaking
In 2017 I bought a demo Audi A4 from Audi Zetland (NSW) with 2000kms on the clock.
When I took it to get it’s first service I was told there was a Transmission leak!
Apparently quite common so be AWARE. After taking the car to 2 different Audi service centres and them attempting to fix it on 7 separate occasions - the car is still leaking!! Nearly 2 yrs after purchase!!
Audi head office have poor customer service - they don’t reply or acknowledge emails or return phone calls - very poor experience indeed.
They are quick to sell you a car - however once they realease the car they provide no after care.
Pls look up Audi transmission leaks online before purchasing your Audi.

Great value for money
I bought diesel A4 and it very ecnomical and easy to maintain. I never had trouble or anynossues with the car. Service was not expensive either. Nice handling and body panel color is still in excellent condition.
Purchased in May 2010 for $50,000.00.
If you love a squeaky steering wheel then go for A4
Audi A4 has an operational issue (according to unhelpful Audi Customer care) that you are going to hate and that is it is the Squeaky steering wheel. After taking to authorised repair centre finally Audi Australia came up with NO FIX. According to Audi it is perfectly safe to drive even if you get distracted with this constant noise- great answer. Be careful while buying this model.
In addition, with my car the coolant started leaking at 55K and fuel flap became noisey. These are easily fixable but may cost you fortune if your car has run out of warranty.

Audi A4 B7 2.0 Turbo Quattro
I used this car every day, probably drove around 400 kms a week in ultimate silence and comfort. The car was awesome, looked great, no rattles, quiet as and fairly smooth on the open road. It handled extremely well for a 1600kg car, and cornered flat as. Interior quality is flawless, had no problems with electronics or anything. This top of the line Audi was awesome.
Mine had 190,000 kms, and very little issues. Code P0171 came up which was a very minor code but meant something to do with the air and fuel mixture of the engine, but was not a major problem. Other than that, great reliable car.

AUDI A4 - 2005. Dreaded "FLASHING PRNDS - Transmission Control Module Failure
My local Stealership quoted me $5,150 to replace faulty T.C.M but offered no options for repair of module.
I stated that their quote was more than the car was worth and they agreed. Were they expecting me to buy a new Audi?
Went to local mechanic who confirmed the fault on his diagnostic computer, removed the module which is bolted onto the back of the C.V.T The module was then sent to Melbourne (Injectronics) who replaced faulty components, tested the module and returned to Hobart mechanic. Installation and testing takes 2 hrs. Repaired module...

Worst car i have ever owned a total nightmare
My audi a4 has been a total nightmare the engine has blown up the dsg gearbox failed and Audi have been totally unhelpful. I have been put off ever buying a German car again. Audi's aim is to deny known defects and make the customer's life as difficult as possible when trying to resolve an issue with their cars
A4 is a stylish, practice, powerful yet economical vehicle.
Handles very well.
Disappointed in the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system thou, too many rattles and bass is terrible.
Also don’t get the seat trim inserts with Alcantara cloth find them uncomfortable and difficult to adjust your seating position, seats bit too narrow also.
A quantum leap from my last car
I needed a new, or nearly new station wagon after my Skoda Superb was killed by lightning! I saw this fully specced A4 quattro S Line that HAD to be sold. Irrespective of price the car is without doubt one of the safest vehicles on the road (a priority for me). Beautiful supple leather everywhere. Ability to tow a single motorcycle trailer a necessity. Seats that are comfortable after 8 hours driving. Head up display is great as is the active cruise control and semi-autonomous driving (lane keeping, speed, overtaking warning etc.). I use this a...s my daily driver and have driven to Gippsland and Sunshine coast from The Illawarra. Excellent fuel consumption (ave. 7.8l/100km), lots of room (but not as much as the Skoda), enough power to lose your licence and an infotainment unit that does the lot.
Car has ever think you need and heaps of safety gear. Great to drive and a beautifully finished car.
Car is used for general duties ,shopping, appointments and going on holidays. The car is driven everyday and is serviced every 15000 KL at the local Audi dealer . Have had no problems with the car, would recommend to anyone. If driven responsibility you get very good fuel economy. It is a very easy car to drive.
Check oil consumption specifications before you purchase Audi
Audi's oil consumption specifications are 500 ml per 1000 KM. So, if you drive your car a lot, prepare yourself to top up oil at least twice between services. And, if your car oil consumption is above Audi's specifications(500 ml/1000 KM), there is a high chance that you got piston rings failure problem, even if the car mileage is not high, because it is a common issue with some Audi cars.

Great car, horrendous service costs as car life goes on ...
I fancy myself a bit of a car nut, so I was pretty happy for the first two years of ownership of my second hand 2010 Audi A4 B8 1.8TFSI. It drives well, it's extremely comfortable, the tech in it rivals new cars despite its age, and it just looks like a beautiful car.
My main gripe has been service costs. At just under 10 years old, and shy of 150,000km, the Transmission Control Module died which warranted a $4300 repair. I was not happy but understood it's a second hand Euro car so that costs are expected ...
The main gripe I have is tha...t after the independent mechanic ordered the part from Audi, at no stage did Audi inform him that the car would need to be sent to Audi for coding. Independent mechanics can no longer code TCM's themselves. So Audi decided to hit me up for 4 hours labour for practically nothing. As much as I love the car and the way it drives/handles, I would say beware when buying a second hand Audi. Yes you get the car at a discount, but Audi will make you pay in parts and maintenance costs ...
Great Car. Lots of power.
The driving experience is like no other vehicle I have had. It’s smooth and the turbo sounds fluid. Long distance trips are a breeze as the cruise control saves leg cramp. Overall a pleasant driving vehicle and good value for money. The parts however are a bit expensive but of quality material.
Great when still under Wty
We loved the car for the first 4 years then everthing started to go wrong, Igintion coils,Pcv,hood lining dropped,front wheel bearings,water pump steering shudder and the dreadfull CVT died
To make matters worse most of these repairs have been recalled in other countries but the arrogant Audi Aust claim they haven't heard of the problems .Tried to trade it in but after spending nearly $50.000 they give you 15.000
Went to Mercedes they sell you a car but wont touch Audis as trades.
Buy one but get rid of it BEFORE the WTY is up
Love the car!
I bought the car as a dealer demo with around 5000 kms on it, and it was one of the best car I've ever had for 3 reasons. 1, the car drives beautifully; 2. the new interior of Audi beats any of the other competitors; 3. I love the subtleness of the car but also the luxury that comes with it. Overall, I am a very happy customer.
Bought one that had 20 000 km on it a few months ago. Has been great to drive. Suspension is OK but not great. I would prefer if the car was lower to the ground. Interior is nice and as expected but MMI system still needs to be updated as they are lagging behind other car companies. On 98 Octane, driving a manual, the car costs approximately $80/week for fuel on a relatively high usage rate.
Best car ever had without any problems. Very durable and reliable. The acceleration is not as good as BMW in the same engine range as BMW has valvetronic system which also can damage their engines. Drive smooth and nothing to be worried of. Definitely recommend if you can get a good price with a good gearbox.
My car was all I had :)
Bought the 2.0 turbo diesel model 1 year ago. Driving it is very comfortable. With the leather seat covers, they provide less heats in car space. The back seats have good space for passengers that I received few good compliments from several Uber rides. The only shame is it lack of bluetooth media audio, had to buy an adaptor to bypass this ‘fault’.
