1999 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

Always wanted an A4, finally talked
myself into getting a certified '99
previously leased by a soccer mom. I
figured with the warranty and it being
used as a family vehicle I was safe
buying my first used car. So far, a few
problems. The rear wheel rotor went
during first month. Broken magnetic
strip in the tiptronic housing. A
headight died. A coolant leak and oil
leak needed attention. Paint chipping
on trunk lid. Radio has spazed out a
few times, but no repairs needed.
Brakes are acting up at 70k miles.
Catalytic converter blew one day. Thank
God for the warranty. Otherwise, the
car has been great. Very comfortable to
drive and ride in.


Best Features

Sport interior is great. Tiptronic makes up for weak low gear HP. Trunk space is plentiful. A+ for fold down seats, exterior looks, red heads up display and on-board computer. Auto window up/down is great. Quattro makes you forget you're driving a sedan in winter/rain.


Worst Features

Get the CD changer in the glovebox rather than the trunk. Cup holders misplaced. The placement of the driver side window controls is dumb. The seat controls are ridiculous. No pick-up unless you floor it in AT. Rims on sport package look cheap(seven spoke). Wish I had gotten a 2.8T

1999 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

The car is beautiful, sporty, fun to
drive, and gets compliments everywhere
I take it. That may be for aesthetic
reasons...and I understand some people
have problems with Audis, however this
is a good year (as opposed to problem
years 96-97) and I think I got a good
one.


Best Features

The exterior styling. Sporty, classy, stylish. Interior is roomy and luxurious. Trip computer is spiffffffy.


Worst Features

Gas mileage leaves a little to be desired...or maybe it's just because I drive this thing EVERYWHERE because i love it!

1999 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T 4dr Sedan


Review

140,000 miles and we have had two
failures, both casued by husnad in a
hurry. The plastic on the dipstick
handle broke when twisted incorrectly
as did the plastic surround for the
parking brake. This car has just been
terrific to drive and it is outstanding
in rain (we live in Western WA, we know
rain) and snow. Engine has been
bulletproof, interior shows virtually
no wear on any surfaces. Our third
Audi, certainly not our last.


Best Features

the quattro all wheel drive is outstanding, the interior and buld quality are as well


Worst Features

back seat is too tight and has been improved in newer models.

Review

I have had this car for about 4 months now and really
love the car. Not just the looks but performance. I felt
the 150hp wasn't enough, and one mod(Chip $400)
made me happy with 200hp and 243ft/tq. You wont
be dissapointed when buy this car the AWD helps out
nicely when driving in snow/rain or just everyday use.
The cost of repairs is a little steep, but it lacks there it
makes up in exceptional gas milage (for an
AWD/Turboed car) of 23/32, and looks and
perfornace


Best Features

AWD Turbo 5-spd manual Red interior lights Heated seats Projector headlights 6 CD changer BOSE 9 spk sound system Digital displays


Worst Features

More Horsepower More Torque Bigger Engine Bigger/Longer Warrenty All Seats Heated NAV System(on all models)

Review

I dod a tone of research prior to buying
an A4. After comparing to five other
possibilities I took the plunge and have
been the happiest driver since. Found a
2.8 Sport PKG with 5-spd manual with
60K. I have since added a tune kit(air
induction, exhaust, brakes, and ECU)
from Evolution Motor Sports in Tempe AZ
and have had even more fun!! Although it
is a little more money for the car in
terms of initial cost and maintaining,
it will cost the same as buying a
cheaper auto that you have to fix
coonstantly like the GMC Jimmy I had
previously. Living in Colorado every
aspect of the A4 is used and enjoyed.
Can't wait to get a new one in about
200K miles!!


Best Features

QUATTRO! Very fun to drive, 5-spd manual is the only way to go, trunk space is similar to the Grand Canyon, saftey features, Bose system, solid engineering, and power everything.


Worst Features

Could have a little more room for the rear seat and less trunk. Wish that the aluminum trim was an option in the 2.8, not just the 1.8T. All the other improvements are made on the newer A4's. But that was more money. Watch out for the timing belt every 60k!!!! That is a must, period!
