Mistake

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

This is a terrible car. Do not do it. I sold my Lincoln hoping the AWD would help me out in the winter and I sold the car within 2 months of having it. My clutch was bad, the back axles were screechy (500 fix), wiring for blinker was bad (200 fix), the CD player didn't work right, the tape player ate tapes, the cigerrete lighter wouldn't open(I couldn't charge my phone or gps) one of the rear windows wouldn't roll up or down, the display screen was broken, the bumper began to fall off after 2 weeks, the buttons were coming off on the key fob.. AWFUL

Solid little car

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

So after my Saab 9000 died, I got my little Audi, and I have been loving itt since. I've put a couple of thousand miles on it, and I love it. Quattro has actually saved my life, and the car is definitely one of the most solid feeling cars that I've ever been in. I love how this car has attracted a cult of modders, if I ever need anything, I just go on the forums and do the diy, the 1.8t is vital, and the automatic just kills the whole experience because turbo+manual+quattro= some slightly illegal amazingness.

Quattro!

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

This car handles like no other car I have driven in my life. The Audi grips and grips, and that more than makes up for the lack of power from the 1.8t. I have more confidence in the handling and the solidity of the Audi. The only thing that I've had to replace is a window regulator on my car. It cost 250, but that was reasonable.

Just keep up with maintenance.

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

I bought this car about a year ago, since then I've only needed to replace the timing belt. no mayor problems the only things that have been replaced are parts that any other car replacement is needed. i do most of the work myself. the Quattro system is awesome all year round also the turbo is strong (just check you oil on every gas fill up) this German car is built to last. at 160 HP i keep up with cars that have 20 HP or 30 Hp more then me, i do not recommend the A4 to people who don't know about cars. I don't think i want to sell it.




Good car overall

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

I bought the car with 155000, call me crazy but I did. Knock on wood nothing major has happened. Although, I wanted to change my transmission fluid and itÂ’s a huge deal because Audi has once again made it difficult. Seeing past this, it has been fun to drive and everything still works except the triptronic sensor is bad but still shifts fine in "d". This car rewards good driving, if you take it easy, the car will outlast you.




Good basic transportation

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

For the northland the A4T quattro is an excellent choice. However, I have experienced the electronic glitches that my dealership says are unique to this model year. I gave up my BMW E30 with 300k for the quattro and will likely go back in the near future for the fun and driving experience. All in all good transportation, but I would for sure seek out the sport pkg if another A4 hits my radar.
