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.

Quater million miles and still

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4

I got a great deal on the car in 2006 and planned on driving it for a year and then selling it to make some profit. I was blown away after the first winter driving this car in Northeast Ohio. After 245k the paint still looks new there's no rust the engine runs great the transmission shifts perfectly.. my only complaint is that I have been through 6 wheel bearings and 8 control arms.. I was told by my mechanic get used to the oil leak that is just the Audi way of marking its territory.. there is nothing on this car that is cheap to repair. even though I paid cash for my car I still consider the repairs to be a monthly car payment. But still my favorite car

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4

Built in October 1998 and purchased in April 1999. This car came with the sport steering wheel and beautiful cloth seats. I added mud guards to help protect the exterior. The interior materials are very good. I've had no issues with the engine. It's unstoppable. It has the original clutch, still going after millions of shits. There's no body rust. The bad: The 99 Avants did have some front suspension issues. They were mostly covered under warranty. The rear wheel bearings need to be changed pretty frequently. The side airbags had problems too, but they're easy to replace.

Keeps going and going..

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A4

Bought this car from the original owner in May of '09 with 129k on the meter. Three years later at 160k we still enjoy this car. As with any of the other Euro cars we've owned (two BMW's, Volvo S60) there are a few maintenance items that many people grumble about, but this car still runs as if it were new. Yes, the parts and repairs are expensive, but the end result is pride of ownership and reliability which you don't get from, as an example-a 13-year old Taurus with 160k on it!
