2009 4dr Wagon turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I owned a 2006 A4 sedan with the 2.0T (BPG) engine and got 160,000 miles out of it without any real major problems I had to pay for. A problem with the high pressure fuel pump cost Audi about $2,000.00 to fix. I bought it as a CPO with 24,000 on it and traded it withabout 190,000. full 2009 Audi A4 / S4 review

Most of these will break, so be prepared. My trunk would decide when and if it would latch, same with the fuel door and door locks and alarm. The vehicle was broken into while the alarm was set yet it never sounded the horns, lamps, etc as I was nearby. full 2006 Audi A4 / S4 review
