We wouldn’t strip your car-aficionado credentials if you failed to spot the new Audi A4 for what it is: a thoroughly redesigned car. Although the ninth-generation A4 looks eerily familiar to the last version, it actually rides on a new platform with reworked powertrain and suspension. In the sports sedan tug-of-war among Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the A4 now prevails over its peers.

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

We wouldn’t strip your car-aficionado credentials if you failed to spot the new Audi A4 for what it is: a thoroughly redesigned car. Although the ninth-generation A4 looks eerily familiar to the last version, it actually rides on a new platform with reworked powertrain and suspension. In the sports sedan tug-of-war among Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the A4 now prevails over its peers.

Sports sedans often fall short of expectations, being neither sporty nor luxurious, or prove unreliable. The A4 gets all of these things right, which is why it jumps to the top of this class in our rankings.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2017 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

Android Auto

"Car drops connection to the phone. It gets fixed by unplugging and plugging back in. Sometimes when 2 phones gets connected it detects only one phone and I am unable to switch to correct device for navigation."

Anonymous, CA (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Apple CarPlay

"major problem with all new cars with technology; car mechanics works in service departments, not computer techs. So when a problem arises, their solution is to replace the part (and not the program). Had to get an entire new module for the Apple carPlay because of connectivity issues. (that module costs over $5K to replace, luckily on their dim)"

Anonymous, PA (2017 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Some times it works. Sometimes it doesn't at all. I listen exclusively to classical music stations, and sometimes the menus are altogether something else."

Anonymous, NH (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Backup or other camera/sensors

"Cameras should automatically turn on when the car enters a garage rather than requiring the driver to stop the car and take eye off the road while accessing the dash button to turn on the corresponding cameras"

Anonymous, GA (2017 Audi A4 Ultra 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Display screen freezes up

"The system is slow and lagging at times -- buttons and knobs will be unresponsive. This is a problem when, for example, the car is turned on, the volume is on high, and turning the volume knob does nothing for 10-15 seconds."

Nicholas S., AZ (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Display screen goes blank

"System would just go black with no radio"

Anonymous, MN (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

Jim C., BC (2017 Audi A4 Ultra 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

Chris L., TN (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"I started my car one day in January, and it was if the GPS never existed on my car. I couldn't access the map or GPS at all"

Anonymous, TN (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"not an issue where it doesn't work, but the quality of the navigation is terrible compared to Google/Apple maps. updating the maps is exhorbitant. plus a main selling feature was the in=dash navigation "cool factor" yet even the Audi people tell you that everyone uses Apple, etc. great concept, poor execution. Why can't they use the capability of Google with their in-dash system."

Anonymous, PA (2017 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Volume of directions was too low to hear over the radio. Dealer made adjustments"

Steve P., CA (2017 Audi A4 2.0T 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"*It's difficult to enter voice directions. She doesn't hear clearly. *It has map problems -- it takes me off a freeway, around a block or two, then puts me back me on the same freeway (it makes the same error time after time.) No update is available. *Sometimes she tells me to turn -- but a half a block past the intersection where I was supposed to turn. *This is my 5th car with a navigation system, and by FAR the hardest to use."

Anonymous, CA (2017 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The feature became disabled by a malfunction in one of the car's electronic modules. The dealership replaced the module at no cost. The car was still under warranty."

Eloy G., TX (2017 Audi A4 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)
