    Audi is nicer in my opinion and has quattro, but will be more expensive to maintain.

    Had a couple friends with them and the suspension seems to be the expensive part, always heard of them replacing parts.

    I like them though. Living out East the quattro would be nice.

    The Audi a4 is just a Volkswagen Passat, so the A4 would be larger then the Jetta and get less fuel mileage.

    If you're gonna buy an Audi A4, get BMW 3 series.. 330i or xi (4WD)

    Much, much better car.

    Think maintenance...both cars are great. VW and Audi are always fine in my book. But I would go with the one with a warranty and few miles. [​IMG]

    Remember that as soon as you drive a car out of the show room it's value decreases immensely. I would always go for second hand.

    With current VW (and thus Audi) quality, I would recommend a new car or one with a warranty.

    think the real question is, does the audi come with a warranty?
    personally, as someone else mentioned, a new car instantly depreciates, so not alot of point in getting one there!
    plus id just go for audi anyway... quattro, reliable, nicer looks imo :)

    Incorrect. Since 2005 the Passat has been based off of a modified Volkswagen A5 platform, not the B platform, which the A4, S4 and RS4 are based on.

    Definately go for the A4, personally I think they are a LOT better looking and probably have a far better resale value for when you come to sell it. Check out some prices here http://www.usedaudia4.com

    Have you driven either car yet? It's one thing for us to suggest a certain car, but it is another for you to get behind the wheel and get a feel for the vehicle.
    How much is the Audi selling for? I've driven a 2008 A3 a few times and loved it. It is one quick car. The A4 is even nicer.
