Other Audi A4 (2000 - 2005) models:

  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Want to be different from the crowd. It is bright red as they should not silver grey or black yawn.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    I don't ask their opinion but there have been no bad words. After all it is nine years old and still looks good.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Probably as there have been no major issues. Build quality is solid to the point it could go on for another ten years. Just need to avoid the awful dealer mertrux.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    The wife insists her next car will be another one of these.

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    June 2011

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Price ok for low mileage 37k.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Bought it for the wife.

    What was the dealer like?

    Awful in my opinion - Mertrux Derby. Service book, spare key and handbook were all missing. Dealer promised these were with previous owner and would be forwarded. Hard fight to get these replaced at their expense but won in the end.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    The ride can be a bit harsh but handling improved after changing tyres. Seats are comfortable and is a good cruiser.

    What's it like to park?

    Rear visibility a bit restricted but can drop the roof down if really bad.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Car is mechanically sound with minor faults which I ignore I don't expect a nine year old car to be perfect but still only done 45k. Replaced 4 tyres and 2 bulbs. Previous owners have spent money on this car which surprises me with the low mileage.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It is a four seater so for a convertible it has the edge over two seater. Surprising what it can carry with the roof down.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    This is the base model so thee arent any except the roof which still impresses me.
