The Audi A4 remained highly competitive. In fact, this A4 was nearly everything a compact sports sedan should be. It has a solid, high-quality feel and the interior is exquisite. Agile handling makes it fun to drive and the ride, though quite firm, is supple and controlled. The cabin is quiet unless you ask the turbocharged four-cylinder engine to work hard.

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.

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

What Owners Say

"Holds it value extremely well. I love the that we have no issues with it and it's fit and finish are the same as vehicles costing over $100k."

JASON P., WI (2011 Audi A4)

"We bought this out at the end of a lease we'd had on it - CPO deal. It's a really nice car to drive, but overall, we'd have been better served by a less expensive alternative. Cost of mtce & repairs is horrifying."

MATTHEW B., CT (2011 Audi A4)

"Purchased privately, but vehicle still had extended warranty. Good value."

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Just love those lines. Full disclosure - my college roomie designed the interior of the BMW 6 series when it came out, so I'm kind of a Car Snob... Maybe it is because we've been driving A-4s (3 sedans and a wagon) since 1998, but all of the controls are where they are supposed to be. Clean, readable, intuitive... MOSTLY. In the 2011 (my wife's car) the climate controls (manual, vs. auto in the predecessors) and the phone controls (N/A in the '06, '01 and '98) and even the sound system control"

MATTHEW B., CT (2011 Audi A4)

"Great color and the appointments on the inside are all in the right place."

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.
