We don’t always realize that even brand new cars can have recalls. In fact, even some of the most popular new vehicles already have some recalls being serviced, like the new mid-engine Corvette. For lower-model cars like the Audi A4, you might be surprised to hear that the latest year doesn’t have any recalls. That’s right, the 2020 Audi A4 is entirely recall-free — hope this doesn’t jinx it.
The 2020 Audi A4
The new 2020 Audi A4 isn’t necessarily on the list of the most affordable sedans on the market. In fact, it’s pretty darn expensive for being the brand’s more entry-level vehicle. You can pick one up at your local Audi dealer for a starting price of around $37,400. Even with such a steep price, you won’t be left disappointed.
Recalls are annoying
Recalls are more of a nuisance than anything else. In fact, most recalls are nothing more than an inconvenience. The price of having a recall serviced is taken over by the manufacturer, so it doesn’t cost owners anything more than their time. Some car dealerships will even offer a loaner vehicle while they get recall work done. Some recalls can be more serious than others, and many people procrastinate on having recalls serviced because it can be pretty annoying.
While you might not think twice about the car not having any recalls, it does speak to the car’s quality. When you are buying a luxury car, maintenance and repair costs can add up pretty quickly, especially for a brand like Audi. Lacking recalls doesn’t just mean the car is safe to drive, it means that there is a good chance you won’t have any other problems with the car, though that isn’t always the case.
We hate recalls, even if they don’t cost us
Knowing that the 2020 Audi A4 doesn’t have any recalls probably won’t make you any more or less inclined to by the car. At least, when you first think of it. The Audi A4 has been in production for many years, meaning there have been several generations for the model to be refined and perfected. Perhaps the fact that the 2020 model year doesn’t have any recalls is a reflection of Audi working to resolve any of the cars problems effectively.
The 2020 Audi A4 has a surprising amount to offer. It is an excellent option if you are in the market for a lower-priced luxury sedan. Even better, you can expect to skip the headaches of having to take your car back and fourth to the dealership for recall work, at least for now.
