Audi A4 Review! 2003
|Date:||October 17, 2005, 11:15 am|
|Modification:||Audi A4 1.8T CVT|
|General comments:||My options for buying a new car this July were between a Passat 1.8T, Honda Accord EX, and the Audi A4 1.8T with CVT. The Passat suspension seemed soft and вЂњfloatyвЂќ, particularly noticeable when driving the automatic combined with turbo lag. The car would take off all of a sudden, I would back off the throttle, the suspension gave this fore and aft roll and I was doing a lurching bunny hop down the road!|
I was very close to buying the Accord, it had excellent build quality and fully loaded with toys. Much better put together than the Nissans and Subarus I had previously discounted.
Then I test drove the Audi and it was so much fun to drive. It was impossible to leave the showroom without it. This was a heart versus head thing. The Honda was just as well built, and $3,000 cheaper, loaded with more goodies like leather, and sunroof. But it was boring to drive, just no feel of the road.
You just get in the Audi and you know its right, just point and shoot, its so much fun it ought to be made illegal.
|What things have gone wrong with the car:||The only real disappointment is the standard stereo, its sounds bland and lifeless, not the quality I would expect.|
