Benefits of Driving a 2008 Audi RS 4 Sedan

The 2008 RS4 offers supercar performance within a restrained four-door sedan design, and Audi's sure-footed quattro AWD system is standard. The new cabriolet model has few peers, offering stellar performance and handling, top-down thrills, and seating for five.

What's new for 2008?

A new two-door cabriolet joins the Audi RS4 lineup for 2008. It is equipped with the same 420-horsepower V8 engine that is found in the RS4 sedan, and constitutes one of the most potent and luxurious full-size convertibles on the market today. A reported 300 of these models are expected to be delivered to the U.S., and the cabriolet is rumored to be a one-year-only model run.

Model Strengths

  • Supercar performance with a staid appearance
  • stellar (and proven) AWD control
  • striking interior luxury
  • available open-air experience.

Model Review

Audi took a lot of their Le Mans-winning racing technology and funneled it into the limited-production, four-door Audi RS4, which is joined in 2008 by a new two-door cabriolet model. Both body styles employ a 4.2L V8 to crank out 420 horsepower, and the engine makes the overwhelming majority of its 317 lb-ft of torque at slightly over 2,000 rpms.

2008 Audi RS4 Sedan: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

(2007 model pictured)

Audi's RS4 sedan will return for another model year this fall, even as the company preps a new-generation A4 for a September debut at the Frankfurt auto show.

The new RS4 sedan, Audi says, will get a few new touches for 2008. The first is an optional Titanium package. For $750, this includes 19-inch wheels, a black grille, black window moldings, and a black headliner with piano-black trim on the interior panels. Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth wireless are standard for 2008.

The second option package is the $3800 Audi exclusive package, which includes crimson-red leather seat centers with black leather side bolsters and headrests, with red piping; crimson door trim; red stitching on the shifter boot and steering wheel; piano-black interior trim; special RS4 floor mats and new badging. Sirius and Bluetooth are also standard here, as well as on all RS4 sedans.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Audi Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

A factory-backed limited warranty with coverage up to six years or 100,000 total vehicle miles from the origianl vehicle in-service date, whichever occurs first.¹
