2001 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This car is exceptional in most every
way. Classic AUDI handling/cornering
coupled with the luxurious
appointments. What I really like about
this vehicle that no one speaks about
is the TURBO aspect. It can be changed
out with an aftermarket configuration
and squeeze out much more performance
with ease. It is not unrealistic to
get 325+ hp out of this vehicle.
Overall I think the AUDI A4 is
absolutely beautiful.


Best Features

Handling, turbo, longevity, and build quality.


Worst Features

The entry level should've come with more horsepower but the ability to scale that up on your own, only with more expense, somewhat makes up for that.

2001 Audi A4 Sedan 2.8 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love in Colorado where the quattro is
very nice to have. I have just over
45,000 miles on my A4 and it has been
very reliable.

The only problem I have had is with the
driver's side window 'whistling' a bit.
After 3 trips to the dealer, it was
finally fixed, under warranty.

Other than that, I absolutely love the
car and plan to purchase it when it
comes off of lease in August 2005.


Best Features

Fun to drive factor!! Very good interior layout, love the red display


Worst Features

Cupholders an afterthought, a bit more power and improved gas mileage would be welcome, cramped back seat

2001 Audi A4 Sedan 2.8 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After driving a 1999 1.8T (I've been
loyal to American car makers for too
long) - I pulled it off the used market
and decided to keep it after a month. I
will never go back to US cars. With all
the complaints on this forum regarding
some experiences with reliability,
it pales in comaprison. I traded the '99
in with 80k and the engine and tranny
were in great shape. Now own a 2001
2.8 and am amazed at the improvement
over the crisp performance of the 99
1.8T. It's styling is timeless and
classic and IMO belongs with such
classic designs as the 57 Chevy, 67
mustang, among others. This is a
keeper. Buy Certified if used.


Best Features

2.8 engine - smooth tranny - body stlye w crimped trunk lid. Just about everything. The cup Holder - just be neat. LOVE THIS CAR!!


Worst Features

Typical stuff - mostly addressed in 2002+ models. Some plastics used in the interior are the brittle type may cause noises or break easily. This car neats to be treated right = rough handling is not well tolerated. IMHO - the source of most "reliability" complaints.

Review

I have a '67 Mustang that has less
problems!!!. Nothing but electrical
problems since I've had it. ABS unit
needed to be replaced twice (without a
warning light...that's comforting),
control box for door locks had to be
replaced (couldn't even get in the
car!!), most recently, had to have all
dashboard electronics replaced after
radio froze (couldn't change stations
or anything) and dash disply went
dead. If you have to have one, lease,
and not for longer than the warranty.


Best Features

Performance...it does drive great, but the tiptronic (auto-manual) is useless. Go with the pure manual.


Worst Features

Improve quality and reliability or stop making them
