Great handling- particularly cornering
My A4 has been a great car- I am definitely a convert to Audi. My next car will be an Audi too- but probably the sexier looking A5 next time..

This is the shitiest car I have ever owned
I have owned this car for a couple of months and I am now thinking of selling it.
The first issue that I had was that the cable that is supposed to move the seat forward and backward snapped. Who would have tought that this can happen to a car and especially to a premium brand that Audi wants to be?
The second issue I am having are the rattles everywhere in the car. They are completely driving me crazy. It’s just unacceptable for a premium car to have so many rattles. The MMI system stops working out of no reason (LTE looses connectivity, navigation stops working, radio craps down...)
Overall avoid this crap of a car!

Mixed feeling about the car
I bought my 2016 A4 brand new from Audi Springwood ( Brisbane) with pretty much all option boxes ticked.( apart from auto parking and Metrex headlight) First year of ownership was nightmare after nightmare. They attempted 3 times trying to fix the same problems ( aircon). Couldn't fixed it over a 3 months period. Finally I managed to get a replace at the end of 2016...same problem on the brand new replacement car.Finally in late Jan in 2017...they said Germany found the issue...was a software issue and problem fixed. Since then, so far no problems, however, I do notice some usage of coolant and engine oil. Both Gold Coast and Spring Audi are lovely to deal with, however, "Audi Australia" avoid at all costs.
Purchased in June 2016 at Audi Dealers for $63,000.00.
Audi Brisbane Centre - Outstanding Service.
I recently purchased an Audi A4 and given I live in Cairns, North Queensland, I was buying the car "sight unseen." Yes, at times, I was a little bit nervous. The end result? I could not be more impressed with the outcome.
Joe Azzopardi was the easiest, friendliest and most professional car salesman I have ever dealt with. On the one occasion Joe was in a meeting, Joel was there to pick up the slack and send me (upon request) interior pictures to give me a better insight of the car I was purchasing. They were always reassuring me, genuinely, th...at it was the "real deal." And it was! Nothing was ever a problem. There's a degree of risk when you are buying a car from another town, and all I can say, (especially once my car was delivered!) is the whole experience, exceeded my expectations. The car is absolutely gorgeous. Outstanding service. Thank you so much!

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.
- A4 B8 (2008-2015)
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
