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.

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

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. Otherwise, it sounds civilized and the seamless eight-speed automatic transmission is terrific. Fuel economy is a very respectable 25 mpg overall, which is made more impressive, given its popular Quattro all-wheel-drive. For a punchy higher performance A4, you'd have to opt for the supercharged V6 S4.

If you want more cargo space, the Allroad is essentially a wagon version.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2014 Audi A4 owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Display screen freezes up

"Would not boot up on start"

Anonymous, CA (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The knob that one has to turn to control finding radio stations and phone numbers, is not working consistently and when I took it into audi, the service person told me it is VERY expensive to repair and that if I can live with it I should avoid the cost. Why this part is failing I don't know but again at 4 years as soon as my warranty was out (ended dec 2018) it became a problem in Feb 2019). What else is going to happen I don't know but this car is becoming a problem. Also the newer cars have better ergonomic designs and also let you know when the car is actually turned off. My mosel may still have the motor on when I think it is turned off."

Display screen goes blank

"especially in cold weather screen does appear for some time - appears to be very cold weather related - no fix"

"Screen and entire system randomly stopped working"

Anonymous, CA (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"Though it isn't touch screen, which i'm glad, the controls are quite ambiguous and confusing."

Ed E., NY (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"I many of the routes it chooses are very inefficient. Example: On an easy to plan and navigate 200 mile route it plans a 300 mile route through a large metropolitan city. I do understand its settings and what they do"

Michael P., TX (2014 Audi A4 3.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The GPS would lose the satellite and would not know where the car was"

Sam V., NJ (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Voice on the GPS became very low volume and had to be corrected. The total experience of using the GPS is awkward and slow, compared to my Garmen Nuvy"

Anonymous, WI (2014 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"It certainly isn't a garmin. Directing me to turn after I pass the intersection, go on one way streets the wrong way, and there are more. Our reliance on gps is huge and fortunately I am able to think on my feet while I drive and not do anything stupid that the gps talks me. Hats upsetting, there is no way to upgrade the firmware/software without spending over 400.00.. my 60.00 garmin has free upgrades. If I do travel to a new area, I usually have my garmin plugged in and ready as well."

Ed E., NY (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The GPS is very difficult to use and is sometimes inaccurate. I rely mostly on my phone Google map."

Wayne S., CA (2014 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"Took it in twice to the dealer. The mechanics didn't fix it, but a salesman seems to have solved the problem."

Wayne S., CA (2014 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Radio

"First I must say, over the first couple of years of complaining to Audi, i first get the usual double talk about where I live, did you try in other areas, why don't you get satellite, blah blah blah, to which I stated, look, this isn't my first car radio. Finally, I got a service rep to fess up and admit it. ( off the record of course) that there is a problem. This radio can not pull in stations clearly. There is interference on 99% of channels it tries to pull in. Now this not may be a 'radio' problem as much as an antenna problem, I don't know. However, the days of unplugging the antenna from the back of the radio and replacing it for a new antenna are over. The circuit board for the roof antenna is not easily accessible and not cheap to swap out. This is am and fm. I do not have sattilite nor do I intend to. Unfortunately because it,s not a safety issue, Audi never came clean and upgraded even while it was under warranty."

Ed E., NY (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"It may not be the radio per se. AM/FM radio reception is very bad. Station signals just don't get pulled in. While the car was under warranty, it was checked by the dealer more than once and was told there is nothing wrong and it must be where i live. They lied right to my face. Eventually it was easy enough to read all the complaints after Google-ing. This is not my first car radio, and this alone is enough to not get another Audi. The Audi people never admitted there was a problem. That is all i would have wanted. At least fess up to it. I enjoy AM/FM radio. I always have."

Ed E., NY (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Voice control commands

Mitchell L., CO (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Premature brake wear

Anonymous, ON (2014 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The inside rear brake pads wore down to the metal. I reported the problem of hearing metal on metal grinding sounds from the brakes to the dealer. He was unable to find the problem on the first two visits. After insisting that they take the caliper off the rotor, the technician found the worn out pads. All the other pads on the car, front and rear were ok. Mystified as to why two out of eight pads wore out and unimpressed with the dealer's skill."

Oil leaks

"Very expensive repairs."

Anonymous, (2014 Audi A4 Unsure 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"I ticked the box on oil leaks because it was closest to the actual problem. The real problem is the engine burns oil at a very high rate. It started having this problem at 43000km which is relatively low Km. It has gotten worse so that now the engine consumes 1 litre of oil every 1500 km of driving. I have owned 11 vehicles in my life and put over 250000km on each and none of them burned oil at all let alone at this rate. Dealership refused to recognize this as a problem they would fix even when the car was under warranty."

Anonymous, ON (2014 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"valve covers gasket and timing chain cover gaskets both had to be replaced at the cost of over $2000.00 and that was with a 10% dealer coupon! when asked, the service manager told me that 15-20% of Audi A4s require this replacement at 50,000 miles! I emailed the main office telling them that this makes the problem a car defect! I also wrote to the NTSB and they should make it a recall at no cost to the owners. I found this to be negligent and inexcusable that they continue to sell this car knowing this problem exists and is common. They making a fortune when they put in defective parts that magically leak after your 4 year extended service contract ends (my ended in Dec.2018 and the car had a leak the end of April 2019. I bought the car based in large part on the recommendation of CR and find your evaluations to be very lacking and not art all reassuring that anything you recommend can be counted on. Consumers should have had some history on this car by 2014 and may have wanted to review from dealerships the most common problems during the first 4 years of ownership. I have normally kept my cars for 13 and 14 years and maintain them. I am very upset about this repair that happens to 20% of these cars and that it is not because of maintenance but failure of parts. I don't know what will fail next on this vehicle, but i believe there are other problems that will arie from defective parts."

Fuel pump

"Two Audi dealerships have been unable to determine the cause of engine shutdown after the vehicle has been running over 1 hour in hot Florida temperatures. Fuel pumps and other parts have been replaced yet this intermittent problem persists. It is troubling that the Audi engine computer sensors and diagnostic equipment are insufficient to register or track the failing component(s). It is also costly to myself as a customer and troubling that Audi dealerships take a guess at the part to replace and if problem continues then return to dealership for another part replacement ... to continue until eventually repaired. It is unsafe and frightening to be in heavy traffic, on a hot summer day, to have the Audi A4 engine cut out completely and not restart until it has cooled off for approximately 30 minutes."
