Why the 2005 Audi S4?

Interior styling

Understated yet elegant, and the styling reinforces the brand image.

Feature availability

If you live in a climate with severe winters, the AWD is great...but only with proper winter tires. The stock tires are mediocre in wintry conditions, particularly when hard-packed snow turns to ice.

Why Not the 2005 Audi S4?


Terminal understeer discourages spirited driving. A fabulous freeway ground-eater, though.

Reliability & durability

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.
