The Audi A4 has a nicely finished interior, comfortable ride and secure handling, but it lacks the agility of other cars in this segment. Further, the engine is noisy and unrefined. Our A4 came with all-wheel drive for added foul-weather traction. The interior shows excellent attention to detail and crash test results are impressive.

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

What Owners Say

"The acceleration is impressive, even from highway speeds. Most amazing is the gearing - The engine turns at roughly 2,500 rpm at 75 mph, which gives it high mileage and excellent pickup."

Anonymous, OR (2007 Audi A4)

"Very responsive but steady car at all speeds. Quattro is the absolute best AWD system. Never, never ever spin a wheel, period. no matter what."

Dwight S., ME (2007 Audi A4)

"Good acceleration, handles curves well, tires have great grip"

Paul D., WA (2007 Audi A4)

"Quattro is impressive in snow/slush. Precise handling on dry roads, fun to drive. Turbo creates impressive pickup from a 4cyl. Fun to drive."

R H., NY (2007 Audi A4)

"handling is good as the car is low to the ground coupled with the Quattro all wheel drive system; acceleration is ample but certainly not neck snapping"

Anonymous, NY (2007 Audi A4)

"The turbo lag is the bad about this car. Audi did fix the turbo lag issues in the 2009 A4."

Robert L., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"For a 10 year old vehicle, the handling in all conditions is satisfying. There is enough performance for daily driving. For longer trips, it is great."

Anonymous, ON (2007 Audi A4)

"Excellent in winter weather"

Anonymous, NY (2007 Audi A4)

"Nimble, crisp responsive handling. 6-speed manual transmission + 2 liter turbocharged = fun"

James K., AZ (2007 Audi A4)

"Turbo hesitation is extremely poor and can be sometimes dangerous when you want to move from zero to 40 in short time."

Philip P., TX (2007 Audi A4)

"Is very responsive and holds the road very well"

Anonymous, IL (2007 Audi A4)

"satisfying acceleration and handling"

Wood Y., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"The car handles very well - sticks to the road. Good acceleration."

Anonymous, OH (2007 Audi A4)

"very peppy car, 6 speed manual transmission, for a 4 cylinder; it is a turbo, though. Great gas mileage and handling - a thoroughly enjoyable car to drive"

Linda I., TN (2007 Audi A4)

"The steering of my A4 Quattro is precise, crisp and predictable. it completes curves with little lean. Handling in winter is outstanding. Its driving precision makes it a fun car to drive."

Frederick G., OH (2007 Audi A4)

"Precise and impressive acceleration and, when called for, all-wheel drive or Quattro, provide confidence in all weather conditions. The 30-valve, six-cylinder engine really moves the car."

Stuart B., DE (2007 Audi A4)

"excellent"

Robert L., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"It drives and handles exceptionally well has a great turning ratio and corners great"

Anonymous, NH (2007 Audi A4)

"It is zippy. It has only a 2 liter 4, but goes along quite well. Handling is very nimble, and handles well in snow."

Edward D., NY (2007 Audi A4)

"car is 11years old bought it with 31000 miles car handles well quiet good pick up and gas milage no rattles top works well I've always liked convertible very satisfied with car"

Anonymous, NY (2007 Audi A4)

"Exceptional handling, with razor sharp cornering. Ride is firm but well damped and there is virtually no body lean in corners. Acceleration from the turbo 4 is very good when called for, but could use a larger engine."

Anonymous, CA (2007 Audi A4)

"The car drives well and accelerates nicely. It is better than many cars in its size/power category. The turbo has what has been described as “turbo lag‿ which is something to be aware of. There is a slight delay between accelerating and actually moving."

Susan T., CO (2007 Audi A4)

"Excellent control and stability."

Anonymous, PA (2007 Audi A4)

"All good, love the turbo when passing or entering the freeway"

Anonymous, NV (2007 Audi A4)

"It is not a race car but accelerates very well and handles better than any car I have ever owned"

DARWIN H., AB (2007 Audi A4)

"Good acceleration, outstanding handling, very secure feeling on the road."

SUSAN M., PA (2007 Audi A4)

"Has the S line handling option. Handles and corners like a much more expensive sports car. Very fun to take sharp curves. Acceleration is very good except from a dead stop, because the turbo has a brief lag until the revs get above a few hundred. The ride can be a little rough over uneven roads, but this is to be expected with a sport suspension. Steering is responsive and input allows road "feel". Braking is adequate but could be better."

GREGORY C., NY (2007 Audi A4)

"It has AWD in a sporty convertible with very enjoyable driving experience. The Interior is very nice with burled wood trim."

TIMOTHY R., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"Driving experience is very satisfying. Handling is superb. Acceleration is adequate, but larger engine would be better."

RICHARD M., CA (2007 Audi A4)

"Car hesitates unpredictably after the vehicle has temporarily stopped"

Anonymous, ON (2007 Audi A4)

"Plenty of power and handles very well"

RICHARD V., OR (2007 Audi A4)

"Six speed manual transmission is superior"

LAURIE D., AZ (2007 Audi A4)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"3 years ago we took this A4 on a 3 week 6000 mile trip and it was very comfortable."

Robert L., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"Not as comfortable as the Q5"

Anonymous, NY (2007 Audi A4)

"excels in comfort of the seats, quiet and comfortable ride"

Wood Y., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"Multi-positional seats and steering wheel satisfies my 4'10" wife and myself (5'9"), but the really impressive aspect is the sheer driving pleasure of power and responsiveness of the 3.2L 6 cylinder engine. Smooth and powerful acceleration while four tires (in sketchy traction situations) pull/push the car in an impressive forward thrust."

Stuart B., DE (2007 Audi A4)

"The seats are easily adjusted or changed. As the driver, my seat is comfortable and I can reach, read or see everything I need to have a pleasant experience"

Susan T., CO (2007 Audi A4)

"Firm suspension makes for a bumpy ride on rough roads. Poor roads makes for a poor ride."

Anonymous, ON (2007 Audi A4)

"excellent"

Robert L., MD (2007 Audi A4)

"Mostly great as one would expect from a luxury car. Big gripe on space for infant and child car seats. Front occupants have to scrunch up too far to make room for car seats in rear."

LARRY O., CA (2007 Audi A4)

"Ride too firm for wife but fine with me."

Anonymous, ON (2007 Audi A4)

"i don't think the seats fit a natural seating position - they put you in a bit of a hunched over position."

Anonymous, MD (2007 Audi A4)

"Although the car is a 4 door sedan, the rear seating is pretty much for children only."

EDWARD D., NY (2007 Audi A4)

Value

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

What Owners Say

"Still trucking after 10 years. Excellent value."

Paul C., CO (2007 Audi A4)

"Until about 100k in miles this vehicle require little else than basic maintenance (fluids, tires/brakes)"

Anonymous, CA (2007 Audi A4)

"I've been driving the 2004 for 13 years and it has required only normal maintenance."

SUSAN M., PA (2007 Audi A4)

"This convertible is very sporty and fun, but the discomfort and noise are detractors. It is hard to get in an out of this car. No Bluetooth music option."

LARRY O., CA (2007 Audi A4)

"The vehicle has been very practical over the years. I've been able to carry everything I need to and use it for most any purpose without issue. The seats fold nicely out of the way for excellent trunk space. I love the roof rack and use it frequently. It's a great all around car and it keeps me happy enough that I haven't bought another vehicle in 8 years."

Anonymous, NY (2007 Audi A4)

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"LOVE my Audi. This is the 3rd I have owned, two were brand new @ purchase. Comfort, handling, great mileage and safety record were all factors in this most recent purchase. Besides as a "Brillant Red" color, it always attracts comment from young males!"

Anonymous, NV (2007 Audi A4)

"Overall compact design and wheels"

Anonymous, VA (2007 Audi A4)

"I like the curves and the way the fenders flare and the way the lights and grille are integrated into it so smoothly. It's low to the ground and the width and length are proportional."

GREGORY C., NY (2007 Audi A4)

"Styling is classic and impeccably executed. Flawless paint, wood interior trim, leather. ."

RICHARD M., CA (2007 Audi A4)
