Not a driver's car
AUDI A4 2.0 TDI 177 Quattro SE Technik 4dr (Review date: 5th September '14)
Bought this car as I was looking for a 4-door, diesel, 4wd car - surprisingly few in that category. It's OK, but not very exciting. The interior is of good quality, good sound system, but the climate control is fiddly. Thought the extra torque would make up for the drop in power, from my usual petrol cars, when it comes to overtaking - not the case. On the plus side the economy is great - 45-50mpg - so there are smiles driving past the garages. The Sat Nav's a bit hit-and-miss: it's a nuisance having to eject my music CDs and wait for the system to load, and you cannot enter full post codes - which can make setting the destination difficult - but it is very precise and clear with directions. The start-stop system is completely random, which is another frustration - I know it's a bit of a gimmick, but if it's there it should work properly (the system on my wife's BMW is very reliable). Road holding is great, as I would expect from the Quattro system, and I love the electronic hand brake.
In summary it seems reliable, feels plush, has great economy, but has a few frustrations. It is, however, not a lot of fun or excitement - look elsewhere if driving is one of your pleasures.
economy very bad
AUDI A4 2.0 TDI 143 SE 4dr (Review date: 12th March '14)
had my 58 plate A4 2.0 TDi 143 SE for a month.drove 1100 miles. motorway and town. motorway no more than 45mpg. driving at a speed between 50 and 75. town no more than 32mpg. nowhere near the company saying 40.4mpg. My 90 percent driving is in town work, school run etc. driving audi is a pleasure. so far no problems. next time i go for BMW efficient dynamics
Great car but only 45MPG at best
AUDI A4 2.0 TDI 177 Quattro S Line 4dr S Tronic (Review date: 26th February '14)
I have the 177 Quattro automatic and I'm writing a review because I can't get my head around the other MPG figures stated on this site.... Before I get to the bad point I must say this card is great in terms of the Quattro system and as I have the fully loaded version its a joy to spend time in. this issue I have is the MPG.. around town I get about 29MPG and on a long drive at 70MPH at best I can get 45MPG. I have spoken to Audi to see if I have a fault but they were not prepared to comment other than this might improve after I have worn the engine in at 15K. I have seen other reviews were 50+MPG is achieved however with mine this is impossible. I would like to state that I don't hammer the car everywhere and on the motorways I keep it around 70MPH... so in short if you want 50+ MPG this might not be for you.

AUDI A4 2.0 TDIe 136 SE 4dr [Start Stop] (Review date: 12th October '13)
After many years driving a string of brand new, medium sized company cars, Mondeos etc, an (05) A4 2.0TDI S-Line, with 63,000 miles on the clock, was my first venture into owning my own car. After adding another 15,000 lovely to drive, lovely to look at and above all affordable to maintain work miles, I must say that the 7 year old was the youngest, taughtest and "newest" feeling car I had ever lived with (during the many previous years of company car driving).
I changed it for a 3 year old with 32000 in July (2013), enter the Audi A4 2.0 TDIe 136 SE 4dr [Start Stop]. The amasing thing was that when I tried this one, how very similar it felt in so many ways to the old s-line. A testament, I thought, to the quality of Audi and both of these cars
2012 S4 Saloon
AUDI A4 S4 Quattro 4dr S Tronic (Review date: 17th March '13)
Fantastic all rounder - good for the family trips and motorway commutes, and great fun on the a roads
It loves petrol so be ware conservative driving will return around 25 mpg combined
I purchased the car after owning a number of BMWs and with the winters getting worse I wanted something with AWD, yet to try but hoping its an improvement on the RWD
After owning an Impreza wrx a decade ago I'm hoping this will be equally as reliable and fun to drive for the next couple of years
2011 A4 Dynamik 2.0 TFSI Quattro = Simply Brilliant
AUDI A4 2.0T FSI Quattro Dynamik 4dr [Start Stop] (Review date: 27th February '13)
I own the Special Edition Audi A4 Dynamik 2.0TFSI.
The A4 Dynamik is a limited special edition only 400 Made for Uk Customers only. The Dynamik has a exclusive Bodykit including side skirts, Rear spoiler( Not a big one) , Front splitter, Rear diffusers where the exhausts are. It also has Black and Silver Wheels 19" Wheels (Complimented all the time ! ) Black Front Grille and black around the Windows. To finish it off it has been lowered by 20mm from the standard Audi A4. All of this is fitted factory standard to make the Dynamik an "Exclusive Edition"
There is no other way i can describe it but FANTASTIC !
It is Spacious for a family of 5, Split Folding Rear Seats as standard comfortable Leather. It also has a Space Saver Spare Wheel as standard which is incredibly useful unlike a Bmw.
It is very Smooth fast and Responsive and will pick up quickly in any Gear. With the Quattro there at all times. You will never loose Grip even if you accelerate off the line as hard as you can.The Steering is light and Easy.
In the snow although it has 255/35/19 Summer Tyres fitted it is like a Snow Plough. It gets through it with ease.
I have driven 18000 Hard miles and i only just need to replace the Dunlop Sp Sport Maxx Gt tyres which come with every Dynamik from New. It also has even tyre Wear which is a bonus. It is Very reliable not had any major problems, But if you are purchasing a A4 Dynamik then watch out for the Side Skirts and the Spoiler as they may be loose as this happened to me.
It is pretty good on fuel for its staggering performance although it does use alot of Oil as does any Audi 2.0TFSI this is also stated in the Handbook.
It never stops getting compliments off people. Everywhere it goes !
It looks staggering beuatiful !
If you are thinking of buying an A4 go for the Dynamik (Preferably a Red Manual A4 Saloon) and you will not regret your purchase guaranteed !
Very good German saloon with minor flaws.
AUDI A4 2.0 TDI 170 S Line 4dr (Review date: 15th October '12)
I've had the car for over a year and a half now, put over 25k miles on the clock- to a total of 96k. So far so good.
What I like mostly about it:
- engine is plenty quick, yet economical
- spacious and well made
- sticks to the road
- good stereo
All in all it is a pleasure to look at, and to drive.
How about the flaws? The only problem I've had in the car was the DPF system. I do quite a lot of short journeys, and it seems the car can't regenerate the filter this way. Since I hit 70k I would see the DPF warning from time to time and had to take it on the motorway, which is a nuisance to say the least. Dealer's price for replacing- horrendous, and they give no warranty. Finally after a lot of research had the DPF removed completely, and guys from OMG Performance have also modified the software and switched the filter off. After this- never had to take it to motorway again when I didn't want to.
Now I can say the car is as close to perfect as it can be and I definitely would buy it again! Also can recommend it to anyone, but if you use in twon- you'll need to deal with the DPF sooner or later.
A4 2.7 V6 aut pleasure to drive
AUDI A4 2.7 TDI SE 4dr Multitronic (Review date: 29th September '12)
I'm writing this review nearly one year after selling my car. Unfortunately I needed money for house deposit.
The first advise for all buyers. Before you look at the rating given by others, read carefully their comments.
First about the car. Before A4 V6 2.7 I had an Audi A8 V8 3.7 quattro from 2004 so there were high expectations. The only disadvantage was lack of 4x4 and maybe a bit worse seats. I was really happy with my car. Acceleration, space, the quality, the engine and gearbox, everything was perfect. My car had top specification with B&O sound system, rear camera, ventilated electric seats and so on. It was a pleasure to drive it. Really nice car, nice driving and a bit easier in town as A4 is shorter than A8.
And then when you read comments written by people having a car with 2.0 engine and expecting a Ferrari acceleration etc, just think about seriousnes of these comment. Before buying my next car I read some reviews. I found one guy describing 2-door coupe car of not being practical and not being a family car. Was it a joke? I don't know. Once again, before taking decision about buing any car, read comments carefully. Ps. sorry for any gramma mistakes, I come from PL :-)
