1997 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

Puchased a Certified Used Audi A4 - 1.8 turbo to experience some German Engineering. Unfortunately, Engineering was the problem, as the vehicle lost both a timing belt prematurely causing $4K in damage, and then the transmission gave out as well for another $5K. The car had less than 80K miles at the time of both, and the car was well maintained with one owner. After contacting Audi, none of the items were covered under the warranty, because they were considered "wear items", so the charges were all out of pocket expenses. Never again.

Suggested Improvements

For Audi to get behind the cars they build. Its clear from the reviews that they have issues with the timing belts, transmissions, and turbos.
