Giving up the Audi
By pina8 on
2003 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
After owning the Audi for almost 5 yrs, I'm ready to give it up and move on to a more reliable and cheap to fix sedan (Honda or Toyota). Although it has been fun to drive, i have had a few problems--the initial take-off is dangerous with it sliding and forcibly popping into gear without going anywhere, the air-conditioning never got cold enough (making it worse w/charcoal-colored interior), front air and radio buttons scratched off and needed replacing, frequent engine light indicators going off needing repairs (recent 'oxygen sensor' & gas valve sensor repairs cost almost $1000). It has been fun and sexy to drive though!
Body style, smooth ride after initial take-off and decent trunk size despite being a sporty care.
CVT transmission, improved air- conditioning, better quality of front control buttons and better placement of the cup holder
