2011 Audi A4 Technik 2.0 TDi from UK and Ireland


Luxury and style


EGR valve.

Small oil leak.

New brakes.

Center console display a bit erratic.

General Comments:

This 2011 Audi A4 still feels as good as new. It is a very solid built car. On higher mileage now and shows no signs of stopping.

Lots on the used market and usually overpriced, but get a nice one with history and you have a great car.

Classic 2.0 TDi engine does 45 - 50 mpg and great acceleration as well.

Interior of this "Technik" model has the lot - leather, electric everything. Very nicely styled also. Quiet on motorway.

My car is silver as 75% of Audi's are. Would prefer another color, but buying used I had no choice. Still, I love this car and do not want to change it, despite getting on to be 13 years old now!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2011 Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TDI turbo diesel from Romania


A superb family car


Nothing so far. Just the usual service.

General Comments:

I bought the car in May, and till now I've had no problems with the car. It's a perfect car for long journeys. I took a trip for 3600km, and at the end of the day (1000km) I didn't feel tired. The average consumption is 6,3L/100km.

A good car for families, with good space for luggage, and plenty of space for passengers.

Back with a review after 195.000 km. The car is very good and well built. No problems so far. The cost of a service inspection doesn't cost more than at my previous Seat Leon.

Me again. The car has now 219.000 km. The car got new shock absorbers, new belts. Everything works perfect. Do not take it to the dealer to change the oil at 30.000km, it will ruin the engine. My car has its oil change at every 10.000km.

Thanks for the updates - you certainly do a lot of mileage in a year! You are correct about the oil change intervals, they need to be done much more frequently.

I've just sold this car. It had 253.000km. I will regret this car a lot, but I had to buy a new one, as this was too old for my psyche. I changed the clutch recently (1500Euro) but still had problems with changing speeds (it seems that this is a common problem with the manual gearbox).

In those 5 years she never let me down and she was a trusted partner on the road.

Thanks Audi!

2011 Audi A4 FrontTrak 2.0 DOHC turbo from North America


Great, beautiful, sleek, rich looking. Will not disappoint!!!


I bought this car in April, and it was made in March (2011), and so far there have been NO problems (knock on wood).

General Comments:

Beautiful and powerful. I loved my 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue, but it started to look dated, so I updated to an Audi A4, and have ZERO regrets. The Olds was the best car I have ever owned, and the A4 is a good contender; if it serves me as long and well as the Oldsmobile did, I will have a new "best car".

I will say I will probably never own another car for 10 years (bought '02 Olds in 2001). I do know I will get another car on or before the A4 is 5 years old, but if I love this car as much as I do now in 5 years time, I will buy a 2016 Audi A4.

The latest (2012) IIHS small overlap crash test shows that A4's perform very poorly, and way below all others in their category.

2011 Audi A4 Quattro 2.0L turbo from North America


Best luxury value for all the included doo-dads


Nothing so far!

General Comments:

I've driven the 2011 A4 for 4,000 kms now, in a variety of weather and road conditions.

Top marks so far for the very peppy turbo 2.0L engine, the solid but not harsh ride, quiet interior, roomy trunk, confident handling from twisty roads and sharp corners, and an entertainment system that is a match to any desktop computer.

Medium marks to the odd LED daytime running lights that wink out when a turn signal is on, the turbo lag off the line, a slightly choppy 8 speed auto transmission that isn't as silky as it should be, and back seats that aren't quite roomy enough for the legs of taller adults.

Room for improvement on head space for the driver. I'm only 5'10", but my head nearly touches the roof liner, and I can feel the top hairs on my head brushing against it in a weird kind of way. The sunroof pushes that space down a bit. I could adjust the seat down, but then I feel like I'm too low down for the most comfortable position.

The media controls and Nav take a little while to get used to but become intuitive. Checking out the screen options can be a bit distracting. Voice command and Bluetooth phone work very well.

This is a high tech vehicle that has a lot of hidden features and options, which can be adjusted or customized off a screen menu. The amount of info on the computer displays is remarkable, and it can even play movie DVDs to the driver on the same display (when not moving, other it's just sound).

This car will be a delight to techie people who want a sporty ride with lots of comfort, pep and torque, without the high cost of big horsepower, many choices of entertainment for long drives (radio, CD, DVD, two SD card slots, downloadable 40Mb memory drive, iPod/iPhone hookup, sat radio), a beautiful Nav display (3D, 2D, night/day, quickly zooms in and out). Rear camera, lots of remote sensors for passing and you've got one high tech ride. And a classic elegant design.

Pretty good value featurewise against Mercedes and BMW, and hopefully as well built as Lexus.
