Review of the 2000 Audi A4

  • Although the A4 has been on sale since 1996, it's still an incredible buy in the entry-luxury segment -- it's fun to drive, richly appointed, and in quattro form, equipped to take on the harshest climates.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fun to drive, all-weather capability, two available engines, attractive exterior styling.

Vehicle: 2000 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

This was the most luxurious and fastest car I ever owned. I previously came from a Jetta that didnt have traction control. Minnesota winters suck so I thought id try out the Audi A4 Quattro. Handled like a beast! I had to sell to pay for college, but I had hose leak which caused an annoying serpentine belt squeak. Found out from the new owner that the front axel snapped and blew out the motor mount, very unfortunate. had 137k IF youre gonna buy one, get the carfax, and make sure timing belt, water pump, suspension drag link and CV boot and all that have been inspected or replaced! the 00' was the most reliable model in my opinion.

I got the car with 80000 miles and put an extra 40000 in the past two years and I can't imagine anyone having as many problems with a car than I had. Very expensive to repair the smallest stuff. The acceleration is horrible but I love the handling and brakes. I like how the lights light up a lot and love the heated seats. Everyone complains about the zero room in the back. Can't stand the buttons always jamming in the cold... cheap.




Love my car

I bought my Audi new from the dealer and have enjoyed driving it for the past 6 1/2 years. I love the responsiveness of the engine, it is zippy and just a blast to drive. I have a stick shift. It has great traction on the road and in the snow. Repair-wise, I have not had anything terrible happen to my car. I had an electrical problem at about 2 years old, but once it was repaired, I've been fine ever since, and I got a new radio out of that deal! I have not experienced problems with the brakes wearing out or anything like that. Now that I am over 60K miles I take it to a reliable local repair shop that is more convenient and less expensive. This is a great little car. Best car I've ever had.

it was never as comfortable on long trips as the A4 (2000 A4s have no adjustable lumbar support). The Accord was a very smooth, comfortable ride but the A4 has a surprisingly good ride and has quite ...
