In 2012 Pat Sheranian purchased her Audi A4 with a down payment from Kyäni. To be completely candid, Pat is more of a Cadillac person than a European Luxury Sports Car person and after just a few weeks she suggested that perhaps I would like to drive the A4 on a regular basis. It was a tough assignment, but one that I have managed to accept.
My memories of Audis were similar to those of Saab, Volvo, Citroen, Renault, and numerous other European cars…somewhat different than American made cars and a rarity on the street. Certainly Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, BMW and VW had gained widespread acceptance in the US market and at least the first 3 brands were highly respected vehicles. I hadn’t realized that VW had purchased Audi and turned it into their luxury car division with the plan to compete head on with Mercedes-Benz and BMW. And nowadays compete it does!
I read a number of reviews of the A4, some of which included road tests competing against its better known fellow German automakers. Surprisingly, the A4 comes out ahead of the Mercedes-Benz and BMW in several categories. And maybe it’s just me, but I’m now seeing Audis all over the place! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t pass at least 5 other Audis, not counting those at the Ken Garff dealership in Orem.
So here’s my review of the Audi A4: great looking, fast, handles extremely well, terrific car!
We even decided to get a personalized plate!
Thank you Kyäni for making the monthly payment on this Dream Car!
