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


Review

This car is fun to drive, espically with the CVT. Seating takes some getting used to. The climate control system IS A FAILURE. When cold outside it is hot inside. When the temperature setting is 64 deg.F the cabin stays at 74. This is the LOWEST temperature available. Audi service has tried to fix it at least 5 times and finally concluded that it is "Operating within specification" since ALL of the cars do the same thing. All of them are wrong according to the mechanic. Also experienced many other failures that have been fixed.

Review

I work for an VW/Audi dealer so the maintenance "issues" are taken care of immediately, however I did not appreciate the coil going at 3000 miles. I was told the "vender" was having trouble with the new design. I see many more Audi's come in on flatbeds than VW's. One thing I can definitely say is it's the best car ever in snow which it why I bought the car and also for safety. I have seen many a customer who has literally walked away from accidents that in any other cars would not have. Quattro is a very good system and please do not let anyone tell you that the BMW is the same, it is not ask any mechanic they'll tell you the difference.

A4 is a Perfect Balance

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


Review

Although not as quick as the BMW 3 series, but just as refined as the Mercedes Benz C Class, my 2002 A4 3.0 Quattro is a perfect vehicle for my 40 mile reverse highway commute. Depending on your mood, leave it to the plush interior and sound system, or the "Quattro-supreme" road manners to keep you grinning from ear to ear. My only complaint is a lack of low end torque from the V6 engine. I've had this car for 6 months, and still get a kick out of driving to and from work. JF

Car has all options .Never again!!!For a car in this price range to have so many problems.Coil pack failure (stranded),brake failure(stranded)horn failure(needed for inspection,took 7 months to get)and many other problems.Dealer acts like I'm bothering him with my problems(they left fog light trim off and wouldn't return my calls)so Audi USA says to drive 60 miles to the next nearest dealer for future service.Like many others, I'm leary about taking this car on an extended trip.Glad I kept my old 1999 Olds Intrigue.It's my daily driver and has never let me down.

Quiet, smooth, confident

Review

After 20 years of driving strictly American cars, finally decided to test drive an Audi, and fell in love immediately. BMWs are excellent, but I felt like I was spending $5000 for the brand name. The A4 impresses with its power, solidity, quiet, and smoothness. Even more impressive: the interior, quite simply the nicest car interior I've ever seen. Little technology flourishes abound but don't get in the way (example: twist the mirror knob to the right and put the car in reverse, and the right mirror tilts down to show you the curb you're parallel parking toward). Overall, superb!

Great A4

Review

Excellent all weather vehicle as snow and rain are a mere joke for this car. I have had a few minor problems however if you want bullet proof reliability buy Japanese. Low end power is suspect however once on the move the 1.8T is a great engine.

Review

so ive owned my A4 for about a year and a half, and now im on edmunds shopping for a decent used one. i consider myself a demanding driver and as a performance vehicle, it's a great ride. but in the shop 14 times over the past year is insane! clutch, suspension issues, ignition coils... the worst was being a center console (electronics) flake out that left me using a loner for a week. CONSIDERING aftermarket chip? risk screwing that powertrain warranty and you'll have the sweetest looking lawn ornament in town. i wanted this thing to work cause its sweet looking package. but ive learned much more about cars than i cared to through this headache.

Review

Overall this car is great. The design of the interior and exterior is second to none. Minimalist with depth is the best way I can describe it. It is truly the car's best feature. The seats are tight and spartan (base vinyl package), which does not bother me but annoyed others. The CVT drive is smooth as silk at speed but off the line it can jump. I have learned to control the acceleration better though I suppose since it rarely happens now. The low end torque leaves something to be desired but once the turbo kicks in you are off to the races, i.e. 1 second after you hit the accelerator.

Review

I purchesed the A4 AWD auto in december 2002 in florida $3,000 below sticker price, knowing that I am relocating to washington, where awd would be usefull and dealers will not budge $500.00, it sure serves the purpose during rainy days, had to replace the master cylinder so far (warranty), the car looks great without even the 17" wheels and sports package.
