A Leason Learned
By Rob on
1999 Audi A4 2.8 Avant quattro 4dr Wagon AWD
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.
Quattro, heated seats, triptronic trans (acceleration onto hwys)
fuel efficiency, better car design to minimize labor time on engine work. Don't own it without a warranty and/or a great mechanic at a reasonable rate
