2002 Audi A4 Wagon 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The driver's experience is clearly what the engineers had in mind when designing this car. The engine delivery and transmission shifts are silky smooth. The turbo layout turns a usually puny 1.8 litre 4 banger into a fun and almost organic feeling torquey little animal! Audi has designed the drivetrain well. The interior and exterior both have the same concept in mind. Clean and sexy lookin. Some of my friends chuckle at me getting the wagon but I love it. It's just way to versitile to pass up. I play hockey and have a Big German Shepherd. I need the space. The other day I had three big dogs in the back and they all had room to lie down and relax on our trip.


Best Features

The simple sexy design. The drivetrain performance and smoothness. The fuel economy. The handling is top notch. Overall I just really enjoy driving this car. Great sound system also. I love the room also.


Worst Features

This car needs a 6 speed, come on Audi! I'm at too high an RPM at highway speeds. The seat recliner wheel seems silly. I'm worried about electrical issues from other's reviews. I have had one issue with the radio. The cup holders and center arm rest are kind of awkward.

2002 Audi A4 Wagon 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car rocks! Handling, performance, utility, it has it all. 3.0 is much better than the 1.8 turbo with lag o'plenty. The A4 Avant is stylish and very well built, and Audi as a company does it right. Their maintenance program and professionals are top notch. Car is very high tech. They can program desired functionality within minutes at service, like auto door locking, windows pan-tilt when in reverse, etc. Love the memory seats and mirrors and dual climate control with heated seats.


Best Features

All Wheel Drive (AWD) gives me tight turning radius and high-speed handling in the turns like nothing else.


Worst Features

Maybe better gas mileage, but with performance like this, that is going to take a small hit. They've really engineered this car well.

2002 Audi A4 Wagon 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Loved my A4 2.8 sedan - but strollers &
golf clubs just didn't go well together
in the trunk. Found my car thru the
great audit certified site and had it
shipped. Audi certified program is one
of the best out there. Love the service
& all problems to date corrected without
jumping thru hoops. As for the car - a
blast to drive, looks great inside and
out. as a coworker told me - "your car
LOOKS fast" - and it is. Perfect
alternative to those small suv's - all
wheel drive piece of mind for our
northeast winters, and room inside and
ontop for your "toys".


Best Features

Tiptronic is the way to go - get the most out of the car & can still be lazy. Heated seats & mirrors are key for Northeast winters. Bose Stereo takes some getting used to, but once your ears adjust - awesome. All wheel drive. Audit Certification Program.


Worst Features

The automatic shifting is awkward in both drive & in sport mode. Gas mileage could be better - especially since it requires high octane. Miss the "hidden" radio EQ found in the pre 2002's. Given the demographics of audi drivers - surprised golf clubs don't fit width wise in the cargo area.

2002 Audi A4 Wagon 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Aside from having defective Spark
Modules which required two separate
service visits (one with only 63 miles
on the car) and a failed Transmission
Control Module, this car has been 100%
reliable and an absolute joy to own and
drive. I can't understand why there
aren't more of them on the road, it's a
great Anti-SUV! With my snow tires on
in winter I run circles around any of
them and get WAY better gas mileage,
too. The car is also perfect for long
trips, just eats up the miles in
comfort and returns 25MPG at 75MPH!
Again, no SUV can touch that.


Best Features

quattro all-wheel-drive, steering wheel shift buttons, handling, BOSE stereo, auto dimming mirrors, garage door opener.


Worst Features

A little more power is always nice, especially since the TT with the same engine is available in a 225HP version.

Review

My wife and I bought this car a month
ago, and we love it already. You rarely
see A4 Avants, unlike the ubiquitous
BMW/Volvo/VW wagons. It's also a superb
value, especially Certified. I laugh at
SUV drivers who paid a lot more for
terrible handling, fuel economy, and in
some cases, less room. It will not
overwhelm you with power, but it's got
plenty of zip for a family car, and
Quattro ensures excellent handling.
It's not big, but it's very
comfortable. The interior lighting is
great- at night, EVERY control lights
up so you don't have to fumble in the
dark. ItÂ’s a really intelligently
designed car with great attention to
detail. Very highly recommended!


Best Features

Great value, beautiful styling, excellent handling and comfort, free scheduled maintenance / warranty up to 50k miles, top-notch controls, lots of standard features, easy to load trunk, lots of storage. Audi dealers will install lower LATCH child seat anchors for FREE.


Worst Features

Cargo cover can't be removed without folding both rear seats, child seat difficult to install b/c rear seats are so firm. City mileage could be better, but highway is 30mpg. Cooling system problem, but the dealer will of course take care of it. I only get to drive it weekends.
