What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Audi A4 / S4 / RS4

Audi A4 / S4 / RS4 Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Wagon turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
65,000 miles and not a single problem other than routine oil changes and tires. My BMW 335i is always in the shop and is a maintenance nightmare.
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual AWD
This car is bullet-proof. End of story. The B7 A4 is the evolution of B6/B7 platform and most of the kinks are ironed out in the final years. No worries here.
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed manual AWD
So far, perfect
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Like that I can drive an Audi for 6+ years/100k+ miles and still feel safe.
2005 2dr Convertible 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
so far so good, but I have only had the car less than a month, too soon to tell
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 170hp 1.8L I4
5-speed manual AWD
120k miles + and counting, no major issues
Audi A4 / S4 / RS4 Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Very expensive to fix and not with the same history of reliability as Benz.
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
My second A4 is better than the last, but I am glad I leased instead of buying. Reliability is just not world class.
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Not reliable, lots of dealer visits,
2006 4dr Sedan 340-horsepower 4.2L V8
6-speed manual AWD
Do not buy one of these used unless the timing chain pre-tensioners have been replaced. There are a lot of complaints of these breaking at 100,000 miles. Mine went at 99,100 miles and the dealer quoted me $10,000 to fix. I had to sell this car at a loss. What a waste!
2005 4dr Sedan turbocharged 170hp 1.8L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
In the shop 10 times during last seven months. Towed 4 times because not drivable
2005 4dr Sedan 340-horsepower 4.2L V8
6-speed manual AWD
The two cars I looked at were low mileage 2005s, CPO, and both had full service history, of which there was a lot. Both cars noted cooling issues and problems with the steering system repaired under warranty. Also numerous electrical problems.
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 170hp 1.8L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Reputation for mechanical problems and expensive repairs
2003 4dr Wagon turbocharged 170hp 1.8L I4
5-speed manual AWD
The car is not reliable - sensors, electrics, etc.
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.7L V6
6-speed manual AWD
The high tech nature of these cars requires somewhat more attention to maintenance.
2002 4dr Sedan 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed manual AWD
Had to have many repairs before all the bugs worked out - now seems reliable (knock on wood)
 

What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Infiniti G

Infiniti G Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan 328-horsepower 3.7L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Despite the high-performance, the G is rated above-average, same as our G35 - which has only been in for routine maintenance (and a couple of recalls). The old G35 only parts needing replacements in 7 years were the two clock bulbs.
2009 4dr Sedan 328-horsepower 3.7L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic AWD
39 months with no repairs.
2009 4dr Sedan 328-horsepower 3.7L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Never had a problem in 25k miles of owning original G35, and reviews of G37 show similar results.
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Reliability was listed as above average and have owned other Nissan products that were reliable.
2008 2dr Coupe 330-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed manual RWD
very reliable
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
So far, so good. Infiniti has a great reputation for long term reliability.
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Infiniti sedans have been reliable and a major reason I purchased it.
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I have now owned 4 Infinitis. THey are well made
2007 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
81,000 miles and no real problems to report, just basic maintenance; oil changes, tires. The dealership did do a couple of minor recall items early on. Still on my second set of tires and second set of break pads.
2007 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Good reputation
Infiniti G Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
It has been in the shop for warranty work 2 times already.
2008 2dr Coupe 330-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Within my two year lease of my vehicle it has been brought it countless times for repair. Exhaust on the car was faulty and needed to be replaced twice. Apparently something was wrong with the resonators and it made a hideous metal pinging noise.
2005 2dr Coupe 298-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
CU rated the G35 less than the Honda Accord in this area
2003 4dr Sedan 260-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Brakes, stereo, electrical system, seats, wipers etc have required more frequent repair than expected. In some cases you have no choice but to replace the defective component with a stock part which again fails after a similar length of time, kind of a vi
