Audi A4 Avant 1.9 TDI quattro Sport (130ps) 5d (2004/04) - Owner Review

Four wheel drive in this wet slippy country is underated, its a small estate,more a bigger hatchback and should be looked at as such. Its a great car for mile munching.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Being quite compact by modern standards I find it perfect, It needs decent tyres. Almost weatherproof, I fit winter tyres and they do make a difference on this model.

What's it like to park?
Rear visibilty can suffer when dirty, but its quite compact, I have parking sensors at the rea, which are useful, forwards visibilty is good, but alloy wheel spokes susceptible to kerbing as they stick out on the sport model.

Living with it

Its had the usual rear wash wipe leakage problems and flexi mount on the exhaust go. But over 75,000 miles thats been it!

What's most practical about your car?
Four wheel drive in this wet slippy country is underated, its a small estate,more a bigger hatchback and should be looked at as such. Its a great car for mile munching.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise control and the Factory fit Sat Nav has been a life saver.
