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


Review

Overall I like the car, but 2 bad ignition coils have really spoiled the experience. Audi Customer "Care" refused to replace all 4 coils on the 2nd occurence. This is a major problem with the 2001-2002 models. From what I have read, very few 2003 have had the problem. Audi's Customer service is poor at best.


Favorite Features

climate control


Suggested Improvements

recall for ignition coils/manual transmision performance when starting up in cold weather(tough to get car in gear) CUSTOMER SERVICE POOR!

Review

I'm disappointed with the 02 A4. The exterior styling is great, but the interior is drab and monotone. I've had many problems in 6 months. Twice I had it towed to the dealership with igition coil problems. The cruise control and windshield washers also had to be fixed. The engine revs too high, even at low speeds and the car could use a 6th gear. The road noise, vibrations, rattle & squeaks are excessive and the overall build quality of the car doesn't compare to that of my '99 A4. The seats are also narrow and hard. On the plus side, the all-wheel drive is great. The handling is impressive when the car is driven hard on winding backroads.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling. Quattro all wheel drive. Handling. Ergonomics.


Suggested Improvements

The overall quality and reliability needs to improve and it desparately needs a sixth gear.

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


Review

Have had a wonderful time with this car. Looks like a beauty (inside, out), is immensly fun to drive and is pretty well priced for its class - its tough to find a well engineered all-wheel-drive sporty sedan with great interiors for around $30,000 Have had the car for over a year now - with absolutely no mechanical problems so far. The only time I needed to take it to the dealer was for its 10,000 mile check-up - which incidentally was completely free and covered under the standard maintenance plan


Favorite Features

The in-dash 6 CD changer is awesome, great acceleration at high speeds, love the huge boot space and appreciate the fact that the car offers heated seats for all passengers - not just the driver!


Suggested Improvements

The folks at Audi really need to - provide power front-seats - offer radio/CD controls on the wheel - INCREASE the leg room in the rear seats. Its improved some but there's still some ways to go.
