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

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)

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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.
