2013 and Earlier - Audi A4 Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    Need to know the if it is a premium, premium plus, or prestige.
  • it's a premium
  • It does seem to be a bit low. If the Carfax checks out as a one owner(don't always trust it though) then there's something else at work here. Read the fine print for additional fees such as another "delivery" charge for a used car. Yep I've seen some dealers do that. Also, misc. dealer fees like a 500.00 doc prep, emission fees and other small ones add up quickly.
  • Carfax does show it as a one owner. the following just caught my eye on the carfax report:
    State safety inspection completed
    Pre-delivery inspection completed
    Body electrical wiring repaired
    A/C refrigerant recharged

    this was at the mileage 11, even before the car was leased.
    i'm not sure when exactly brakepads are supposed to be replaced, but this car had both front and rear brakepads replaced after 18K miles..

    Full brake pad service is nearly guaranteed on Audi CPO. I've never seen a CPO car that didn't have it done.
  • ah ok, that makes sense
  • Hi,
    I am planning on buying a Audi A4 CPO which has the piston rings replaced and is being offered as a CPO. The price is $29k Out the door. Is it a good deal and is it ok to buy a car which has a engine repair?

    CarFax shows
    Engine removed to complete repair
    Piston rings replaced
    Cylinder head gasket replaced
    Radio replaced
    A/C refrigerant recharged

    29k is not a good deal. The car is going to be 4 years old and has major issues. Withe those issues who knows what else is going to go. I would keep looking and relax there are a ton of those cars out there.
  • That sounds just like my old car to be honest. Mine had piston ring repairs. Personally I would not buy. If you do buy plan on possibly having your car back in the shop for something else.

    Since it is CPO you will have a warranty on it for a couple of years but once that is gone. Well let me put it this way. The amplifier failed on my car and the warranty repair was $2,000.

    Good luck.

    I am currently interested in buying the 2013 A4 Quattro with the Premium Plus package. I've looked around and there seems to be a wide range of cars with different sticker prices at various dealerships. I am not really concerned with any add-ons such as the Navi or B.O. Sound System. I am just looking for the car with AWD and standard features that come with the premium plus package.

    What should my estimate look like (including destination fee but without tax). I've seen a large varying rage in price from 35k-43k. I am expecting mine to be around the lower end since I don't want the extra features. Has anyone bought a similar one like the one I am describing? I would love some input.
  • As priced out the MSRP for an A-4 prem. plus will be 39,695 and add another 475 if it has metallic paint. We would sell you that car for 37,079 plus another 475 if it has metallic paint.

    Just go to the home page of this site and you can price the car out yourself, with any option you want. It will give you the retail price and invoice price, it will not give you wholesale cost.

    Working with the internet manager of a dealership:

    2012 A4
    2.0T Premium Plus
    Premium Plus Package
    Mileage: 2,110

    Price: 35,750 (down from 36,495 on the site)

    No Loyalty bonus for CPOs, so that's out.
    Audi offers 1.9 financing.

    Quote from him: "I want to mentioned about two things here one savings of $5605, secound warranty value of $2800 versus new." (savings from MSRP of 41,350)
  • colin_lcolin_l Posts: 591
    The warranty value of CPO so early in the life a car is indeed high if you drive a good number of miles. You have 6 yr 100k versus a brand new A4 having 4 yrs 50k. If you're under 15k miles per year, you can easily compute that you are going to run out of years before miles.

    It's not a bad deal. Still, I would try to grind out another $1,000.
  • If you haven't pulled the trigger on the deal yet I would try to get them to move away from the notion that it is a new car and move to it being a used car.

    Like it or not, the 2013 models have been out since June. So, there shouldn't be any discussion about comparison to new. I personally would look at typical depreciated 2012 prices to see what the deal shows, then add the $2,800 in for the warranty.

    Speaking from experience, there is real value in an Audi warranty. I had the B&O amp replaced under warranty and that repair was $2k.

    So, to me see what the comparably equipped 2012 would sell for used and go from there.

    Checked right here on Edmunds for used: - &bodyType=Sedan&model=Audi|A4+Sedan&mileage=*+TO+5000&year=2012&trim=2.0T+Premiu- - m+quattro&sort=&currentpage=1

    Adding 2,800 to these prices keeps it in range.

    Haven't heard anything in 2 days, I guess their internet division doesn't really keep up to date on emails.

    Appreciate both of your responses. Thanks!
  • 2010 A4
    2.0T Premium Plus
    Premium Plus Package
    Rear view camera
    Mileage: 22,000
    Price: $26,800 + tax + lic fee

    Car fax shows, it was a leased vehicle for 3 years and had only 1 owner.
    Folks, is this a good deal?

  • jnyzjnyz Posts: 93
    Buy out on that car after lease was about 21,500.00. You should be able to negociate that down to 23,000 plus tax.
  • I told the dealer what you mentioned but he says that the wholesale value of that car is $26,408.00?
  • It was listed for $29,500 and I negotiated it down to $26,800. Still not sure if this is a good price though?
