The S4 Avant has always seemed like the best of all worlds to me. While our household quiver of automobiles all serve fairly unique purposes – a truck for hauling and beating on, a van for camping and road trips, and the M5 for raucous fun. The longroof S4 can accomplish most of those things pretty well without taking up three parking spots. I’ve been in one that was beat up and used a construction company car, while a roofbox could make the rear sleepable and lord knows the 4.2L V8 can dispense some justice. This B7 model looks great in black and has just over 50k miles, meaning you’ll hopefully have some worry-free miles before you start wondering if you’re on the precipice of a maintenance nightmare.

Of course it’d be better with a manual, but in terms of commuting, family-hauling, and overall ease of use, the 6-speed Tiptronic should do just fine. A pre-purchase inspection will be necessary thanks to the sparse description which only gives a few minor issues. If it all checks out and it really is just the family car getting passed on that it appears to be, it could go as high as $25k. Anything around $20k seems like a good deal for a car that can do the job of three.
