Review about Audi A4
I always treated with great respect to the Audi cars, as their assembly and parts are considered as one of the best in the world. My first A4 I bought in the dealership with a mileage of about 50 thousand kilometers. I shared with it about 4 years, by the end of this period mileage was 100 thousand miles. Note that the careful driving was not my case, the car was something like a home assistant, whom we loaded with bulky loads.
The car has never required external assistance (tow truck) and it always made it to the house. Car interior is simply magnificent, it can be adopted as a model for other manufacturers. Nothing superfluous, only the most basic. Driving on it, thinking that the whole world automotive industry has reached so high level and by purchasing a different model, you think you will not have any problems. That is not the case. Audi's quality stands out among the others, especially his lightweight body, where many parts are made of aluminum. Lightweight design makes the dynamics and increases the cost, but at the same time increases the cost of repairs. I would not say that the parts are affordable, especially for the original ones. I recall that replaced the suspension arms, as they were covered by oxidation due to the effects of road agents. No one wanted to take on, as no one couldn’t just unscrew the nut, fearing damage adjacent nodes.
Sound proofing in the car is simply amazing. I'm going on the highway, the speedometer is 140, and the engine just purrs quietly, so that does not stop even talk and listens to music. I'm honestly shocked.
However, not everything is perfect in this car. Frustrates oil consumption. And it is as an “ulcer”, on all cars from Audi. Just topping up every thousand miles. I do not think this is normal. Everything seems to have changed that could affect on oil consumption - a little lower level and then again to climb over. But I try to swallow discomfort, as the rest of the car was just excellent.
