The latest RS4 is offered in the Avant shape, which is Audi’s wagon or estate equivalent. The car has a powerful 2.9 L V6 turbocharged engine and 8 speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. The engine produces enormous 444 horsepower and the car can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. This is tremendously fast for a wagon.


The RS4 has had good reliability throughout its existence. The previous sedan models are reliable enough to even buy after 12 years of their discontinuation. The Avant model never had any big problems and it is reliable enough to buy.


The RS4 Avant is a new car and most of the replacement material would be covered in Audi’s 4-year warranty. Audi did a recall on the RS4 due to its shock absorber failure. Other than that, the RS4 wagon is a durable car.

If we look at the reliability of the RS4 B7 sedan, then it is a reliable car in its price bracket. The car does not have any major issues, but the replacement of brakes, tires, and oil does cost a lot more. However, that’s pretty common for luxury sports cars like the RS4 B7. It also produces around 400 horsepower so you would have to bear that.
