Oldie but goodie

by from West Bloomfield, MI on June 16, 2010

Great car for the age and money. Bought car used and it has been a great transportation value. Good mileage as well as comfortable ride with good handling.

This car is great! I love the look and so do all of my friends. It is very comfortable especially on long rides. even though it is twelve years old i would take it over many of the new cars on the road. It has many features and is so much fun to drive. It is great for people like me who ski too because of the quattro and ski sack. I hope to hold on to this one for a while. The thing that bothers me about the car is its reliability. I am lucky it is under warranty, but it is a fair trade off if you ask me to the incredible comfort, handling, and style.

No. 1 Car to own, So useful and reliable

This car is great! i bought mine used in 2008 and it's been a great time ever since. the heated leather seats are so comfortable and the bose sound system sounded brand new: crisp and clean, not to mention loud if i wanted! The 2.8 v6 produces the perfect amount of power to have great torque without killing the mpg. and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system is so great. It feels like a perfects dry road even in the worst of rainstorms! It can take snow like a champ and when the rear seats fold down, it has so much cargo space, you can't go wrong with this car. It may be classified as a wagon, but it's such a classy car, it looks so nice

I bought my A4 Quattro automatic brand new in 1997, and have about 115k miles on it so far. I've had no major repairs. The only things I've had to fix have been: (1) the cd changer - obviously not Audi's fault - had to be replaced twice because it skipped, (2) the motor for the driver's seat went around 80k, and (3) many many brake rotors :c) I'm definitely NOT going OEM with the next rotors. I love this car, and I look forward to driving it for the next 100k miles. It's aging very gracefully and showing no outward signs of wear or tear. I've been good about the maintenance, but not fanatic. If you can find a good deal on one, take it.

Overall its a great car to have. Its well on gas and if you like to floor it once in a while you got that too. Ive had no problems so far with it except when ever I turn the heater on it makes a weird noise under the hood.Handling is good it kinda slides once in a while when the snow comes in. But i still would recommend an audi to everybody!!

Bought used in 2000. Never enjoyed driving a vehicle so much. Handling is its greatest asset. It has the 2.8 L engine with Quattro, which exudes power and control. That said, at 91K, it needs tie rods. Biggest weakness is display unit for trip computer, etc. It fades fast with time. Been replaced twice, and becomes unreadable after a year or so.

we bought the car 2004 with 46000 was great for 5 years. We have spent 2200 this year on sensor engine lights and now need to spend another er1500 on a leaky rack and pinion and it needs brakes for the second time probably another 600. If you can afford the repairs, like the $75 dollar oil filter. Its a great driver. and heated seats are awesome. but its too expensive to fix.
