Review of the 2002 Audi A4

  • Sportier and roomier, the new A4 is one of most appealing entry-level luxury cars for 2002.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available all-wheel drive, powerful engines, sharp handling.

  • Cons

    Prices shoot up with options.

  • What's New for 2002

    Audi's entry-level sedan and wagon are all new for 2002. Along with a redesigned body structure and new sheet metal, the new A4 receives a variety of changes to make it sportier. It is motivated by either a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged four or a completely new 3.0-liter 220-horsepower V6, which can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Making its debut this year for non-quattro models is a continuously variable transmission (CVT), also known as multitronic. An in-dash six-disc CD changer and a dual-zone auto climate control top the standard features list.

Typical euro car with high

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

I've owned the car since new with 220K miles. It has never been to the dealer or private mechanic except for the initial free maint and the few minor recalls. However, that is not to say it has not had its share of anomalies. Three timing belts, 3 water pumps, 3 batteries, One fuel pump, too many coil packs to count, one temp sensor, two valve cover gaskets and one thermostat. All this may sound horrible and it probably would be if I had no mechanical aptitude or desire to do my own repairs. The car is actually easy to work on. Very modular in the way things come apart. Information is readily available on the Net. I've kept this car because the 1.8T engine block is bullet proof.




Stay away!

Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

this car was bought from my family brand new then passed down to me. i have had nothing but probs in this 3.0 v6 quattro. it had turned into a money pit. the coils, cats, timing belt, power steering pump, all this money and still not fixed completely. moon roof wont stay open or close without playing around with it. starter is starting to go. rpms rev when idling. overall very dissapointed in this car. done with audi/vw!

The audi a4 v6 3.0

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

This car is a serious driving machine. It is not meant to be garaged or driven on Sunday's to church. Much worse driven leisurely. This car is a monster and I did nothing to the engine. The only thing I added was a K & N filter to replace the factory one which in effect added another 15 hp simply because of the additional air coming in. From the moment you turn the car on you can hear the engine which to me was like music to my ears. I drove this car to the limit and had more than enough fun doing it. If I had to put it in 6th gear I was over a 100MPH easily. The highway drive was phenomenal. Man what a car. I bought it with 30k and trade it at 102k. Perfect in every sense of the word.

Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)

Much like the other reviews, this car was fabulous from an interior fit and finish perspective, but something was always breaking and it was always costly; I had wiper linkage seize up which was over $300, H.I.D light (dipped headlight) which was $300, and many more. It seemed like everything that had an issue it was $300 or more. There were also odd electrical gremlins with the radio and sunroof (sunroof was blamed on a potentiometer, and the radio was blamed on lithium grease in the door connectors). I got great gas mileage on this car but overall it's a great car if you can afford the pricey repairs. - 1.8t six speed automatic, fwd model

Disappointed

Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

This thing is a money pit. Can't believe how much it costs to fix every little thing. Have had the car almost 4 years now & I can't take it any more. If you happen to be looking at one of these things, stay away.




Too many expensive repairs

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

The 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro was fun to drive and great in the snow but the repairs killed the bank! They were so expensive and something was always going wrong with the car. I wouldn't suggest buying one or any Audi for that matter unless you are willing to put thousands into the car! Buyer beware!

If you plan to order an 2001.5 A4 / 2002 S4, you cannot do that now. You can only pick from the dealer's lot or change an existing dealer order (if possible). So better act fast before dealer's stoc...
