Waiting for the other shoes to drop

Vehicle

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

Review

I've put a steady 12K a year on this car in a mix of city & freeway driving, up to the 75K I have now. After the 4- year lease was up, which coincided with the 50K-mile warranty, I bought the car outright and on a hunch bought a 70K- mile extended warranty. Great hunch! It paid for itself twice over, but now that it has expired I'm dreading the next major expense and wondering what it will be. Though I still love the vehicle, its looks & ride, it may be time to move on before the pit of mechanical-breakdown hell opens up. One amazing point: At 75K miles I have never needed new brakes thanks to careful driving and downshifting rather than braking at every opportunity (though I will soon)

Favorite Features

Look of car, solid, quality feel and ride. Classic all the way.

Suggested Improvements

Though a recent compression test shows I'm not leaking oil or excessively burning it, I'm certainly using it: a quart of Mobil 1 synthetic every couple of weeks. According to the mechanic, it's probably used mostly on the highway, not in the city. It takes a quart of Mobil One every 2 weeks.
