Overall, the A4 is a capable, well-finished car that's pleasant to drive. Its interior exhibits impressive attention to detail and excellent fit and finish, but the rear seat is cramped. Handling is fairly nimble, but the ride is stiff at low speeds.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

NA

What Owners Say

“Handling is exceptional. 3 litre engine ensures passing is a breeze,”

Anonymous, ON (2004 Audi A4)

“It turns on a dime. Its turning radius is great. It can be parked easily in small places on-street in downtown DC.”

V R., DC (2004 Audi A4)

“Responsive, precise. As good as a sports car with the capacity of a station wagon.”

KATHLEEN S., CA (2004 Audi A4)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

NA

What Owners Say

“Seats are not as comfortable as I'd wish (I have a bad back). My old Volvo 850T was heaven.”

Anonymous, NC (2004 Audi A4)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

NA

What Owners Say

“This car is very temperamental and there are many repairs after the manufacturer's warranty that are very costly. There are also too many problems with the window/sunroof switches and too many plastic parts that just wear out.”

Anonymous, MD (2004 Audi A4)

“This car holds its value because it is WORTH IT.”

KATHLEEN S., CA (2004 Audi A4)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
