Well I've had the Cab for a year now and covered 30,000 miles. It's still a beautiful car to look at and drive. It''s supremely comfortable and great fun with the top up or down.
Unlike some other reviewers I have not had a single thing go wrong with it. I've had two routine services so far and a set of front tyres. The dealer I use in Kidlington Oxfordshire has been efficient and friendly while arranging both services so no complaints there either.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this car to anyone. In fact I will stick with the A4 S-line Cab next time around.
(Judging from some of the other reviews maybe it's wise stick to the manual).
This car has been a nightmare. Like the others there have been many faults,from glove box, windows, gearbox and now engine it has 36000 miles .Anyone else have a problem safety drivers seat which when you brake jolts back and forth causing the lumbar support to dig into your back? Audi dealers (SOME) are also a pain and their customer service atrocious. Trying to get matters resolved because car was purchased HP IS TAKING FOREVER Next step will be the courts. Since December 2006 car has been in Audi garage and still not fixed and since Feb 2007 no loan car either. This was our third Audi the last one broke down and was never seen again!
Since purchasing in May 2006, my car as been into my Audi dealer at least twice a month.
The build quality is getting poor - it has a knocking noise that I can feel and hear when braking heavily or reversing and on full lock. Audi can hear the noise but not cure it - it only seems to do it once under load.
There are also lots of internal trim faults, nad a new clutch. The list goes on.
Apart from that, it is a good car to drive. It's fast and handles well.
looks can be deceiving! although car looks great, tops c class for repetitive faults, I too have suffered with nearside window faults from day one, not closing properly. As for the roof, after numerous visits to my audi dealer and various parts, still no resolve, constantly jams. Heated seats malfunctioned, burning legs. Gearbox recently started surging from drive to sport, no reverse. Glove box lid broken, apparently a design fault. Airbag/steering wheel faults, replaced. Been told not to leave keys/coins in car activates alarm, still periodically goes off. Needless to say am now seeking a replacement vehicle. Audi have a policy called 'resolution by design' their own version of the US's LEMON CAR LAW, although amended in the early ninties, the sale of goods act, allows car manufacturers to blatantly supply sub standard goods and get away with it!
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Amazing car, once driven, never forgotton, forget all the pretenders like BMW Z4 and Mercedes SLK, they will never have the passion of a Porsche
I love this car! Handling is great, its fun to drive and even reasonably practical!
