The 1999 audi has really been one of the best cars i have ever owned and i have owned a lot in the past. The reliability of it has been very good i got it with 116,000 on it and it now has 153,000 with only one little problem in the middle of the mileage. It was a valve cover gasket, just leaking a little bit of oil, not a big deal replaced it myself in just under a hour. otherwise haven't had any other problems. the 1999 audi is a great car for someone who cares about cars and knows how to maintain a car.

I bought the car used with 70,000 miles and have somehow managed to put 35,000 on it in a year and change (still trying to figure out how I did that). Even though I bought it with the expectation of putting some money into it, I had no idea that I'd put in almost $5000 for a number of various problems. Valve cover gaskets were replaced, new tires, front axles, new control unit, and assorted other things. Unless you have the tools and the know-how to do a lot of the work yourself, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

Our Audi A4 Quattro WAGON 2.8 V6 5spd was very hard to find! It has front AND side impact airbags. Its not a turbo (no sludge problems!) It was before dual exhaust, so it has a SINGLE muffler! Its the later 1999 production with the newer (better) style dash and elipsoloid headlights. Mine is the simplest/best A4 to own. With a good mechanic who doesnt rip you off, youll have the suspension fully sorted and many trouble-free miles. The build quality on these cars is incredible weve hit 130K with no drama and never roadside breakdown. Am now parting with it (Vermont thanks ask Craig to see the listing) only saying goodbye to Shanta because were moving overseas.
