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


Review

After driving a Subaru for 6 years, the Audi Avant 3.0 is a dream. and the price differential of the two is not so big anymore and the folks at Audi Of Nashua are outstanding. Everyone is friendly and helpful. But lets get to the car. Styling is superb - in and out. Performance of the 3.0 is superb. I love the way the car drives, passes, and handles the curvy roads. Room isn't bad for storing your bike or 4 Ski Bags. If I needed more room, I would have gone with the A-6. Whats not to like


Best Features

Performance, Looks, Bose Radio System and the allwheel drive.


Worst Features

Perhaps alittle better gas milege. I purchased the cargo pad and picked up a rubber liner when the back seats are flat at Home Depot. Everything else we like.

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


Review

I ordered my A4 Avant with the Sport Suspension and Summer Performance Tires without being able to test drive one set up that way. What a hoot! The car tracks like it's on rails! To the person who complained that the Sport Suspension wasn't a "luxury" ride... DUH! If you want a luxury ride you don't order a Sport Suspension. The Audi A4 Avant handles as well as my wife's BMW (maybe better) and is plenty fast (especially using the tiptronic... which I personally like better than a manual). The car has been 100% reliable and, in my opinion, is one of the best looking cars on the road. What's not to love?


Best Features

LOVE the handling of this car... and really like the lines.


Worst Features

The shift pattern of the automatic, even in "Sport" mode, is too tame for my tastes... but slap her into "Tiptonic" and shift her yourself and you're in car heaven!

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


Review

My wife has owned this vehicle for about a year and it's been back to the shop 14 times. We have decided to get rid of the thing. It's got 11000 miles on it. What a complete disappointment this vehicle has been. I have never owned such an unreliable vehicle in my life. Back to Toyota.


Best Features

It looks good while parked.


Worst Features

Don't buy one.

Review

Bought this car for my wife, who LOVES it. I love the styling, superb interior quality, versatility of the wagon. Problems include the well-known coilpack failure which completely disabled the car requiring flatbed towing to the dealership after 7,000 miles. Not what I would expect in a car of this caliber. Now we are hesitant to take this practically brand new car on extended road trips because we are worried about breaking down. Because of short supply, the dealership will not replace all of the coilpacks under warranty, only if they fail (and leave you stranded!) Rims have been a headache (see Suggested Improvements, below)


Best Features

Styling, styling, styling!! HID headlamps, red-glow interior, heated seats, the list goes on


Worst Features

Design 17" Sport Package rims that do not protrude out beyond the tire. Have had 3 rims dinged and scraped already from car washes and installing snow tires. Car is too heavy for a 170 hp engine. Should have come with the 200 hp 1.8T available in Europe.
