1999 Audi A4 2.8 4dr Sedan


Review

I recently bought a 99 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro and I seriously am happy with this buy. It's the fastest, most comfortable car I have ever been in. It's very reliable so far and I hope it stays that way for awhile. The features in it are outstanding for a 99 car and I just love it. I do not regret buying it one bit. The best part is that it's my first car and I completely own it!

Review

I purchased this car in July '09 and loved the way it drove. However, after owning it for 8 months it needed $1250.00 for a valve seal problem and at the same time my mechanic recommended to change the timing belt as well, which is another $1300. Then I had a heavy vibration through my steering wheel which I decided was the last straw. Instead of fixing everything, I traded it in on a '97 Lexus ES 300 which I should have bought to begin with. This Lexus is amazing and so smooth as well. Be understanding that if you do purchase this Audi car that you have to be prepared for heavy labor costs on fixing it. Everything is $500+ and some servicing will ding you $1000 plus.


Best Features

Quattro for the winter, Tiptronic transmission.


Worst Features

These cars are very expensive to maintain. The Reliability is not good and major things go wrong. Especially leaks.

Review

Bought my 1999 A4 2.8 manual shift used with 28,000 miles on it and have loved it every step of the way to its current 110,000 miles and counting. Ride has remained firm and car is solid and tight. I highly recomend the larger engine to the smaller engine with turbo, otherwise you're just going to be too underpowered and frustrated. It is important to remember though, that this is a german car not japanese and does require a certain degree of regular maintenance, which I've found to be $800 a year on average, all in, to keep things in top condition. I'd definitely buy another Audi!


Best Features

Quick, tight, solid, and fun to drive. Trunk swallows luggage.


Worst Features

CV boots need to be replaced at a faily regular rate.

Review

When it's running well, it's a great
car. Handles great, plenty of power, it
feels both sporty and safe. It's also
quiet and comfortable. But the car's had
one electrical problem after another.
It's had 4(!) gas guage sensors, and
needs another, among an assortment of
other problems that were either fixed
under warranty, or are not being fixed
because the cost of fixing them is
prohibitive. Every trip for maintenance
is a $1500-2000 excursion. I think I'll
go for a Toyota next time.


Best Features

Great handling.


Worst Features

Better reliability. Less flimsy cupholders.
