Engine replaced at 4,900 miles by HG - Houston, TX on 07/09/2010. Trim: 2009 Audi A4 3.2 Sedan quattro Tiptronic, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very stylish and handling with the Quattro is great.
Cons: I had the same engine problem as a previous reviewer. After 4,900 miles the 3.2 engine started making a loud clicking noise that would not go away. Thinking it was just the timing or something I took it to the dealer service dept. The advisor tried to sell me an extra $800 service package and tried to tell me that Audi's normally make that noise until the car gets "warmed up" and the oil pressue builds up. Within an hour they called me back to tell me I need a new engine and they will have my car a minimum of 2 weeks. It was 2 weeks yesterday and I am still waiting to get my car back.
Overall review: Momentum Audi in Houston could not provide any reason as to why my engine failed and I needed a new one. They also provided a filthy, run down loaner A4 that died and left me on the side of the freeway. Talked to the service manager today. Will write back to update as to if they finally make this right or not. As a first time Audi owner, I would say DO NOT buy an Audi. Get a BMW or Mecedes instead.

Replaced Engine @ 5600 Miles by Soldier, From Savannah on 03/21/2010. Trim: 2009 Audi A4 3.2 Sedan quattro Tiptronic, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great looking car, the headlights is a head turner, and her performance is outstanding in the highways and she is great for long interstate drives.
Cons: Well I had to replace the engine @ 5600 miles.....Yes 5600 miles!
Overall review: The engine was making a continuous "Clicking" noise after a couple of days I had a security guard ask me if it was a diesel engine!!! that’s when I called Audi and they had it towed to the nearest dealer, 24 hours later I get a call that the engine needs to be replaced and it is a known issue with the 3.2 liter engines and it will be fully covered(Really DUH) the engine needs to be shipped from Germany......Audi would not give me a rental since I brought the car from Atlanta and the nearest dealer was Charleston and they would not give me one. Two weeks later I had it again, my happiness was quickly gone first the dealer (McDaniels Audi of Charleston) left my car outside and somehow tree sap and grease was on the hood, then the engine bay had grease marks in it, Oh yea I start driving about two miles and the engine oil light comes on and was shocked! I drive it back PISSSED and the service manager tells me it was a slight over sight........Seriously a oversight.
