2003 Audi A4 1.8T Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
My first Avant overheated 3 times in the first two weeks due to a fan control module issue. After 2 1/2 months in repair the computer module was replaced and the heat only worked at 100 plus degrees. At my request, Audi replaced the car and charged me $4,000 for a newer car with less equipment. The first day of the 2nd Avant had the sunroof opening by itself (new switch) and the headlights turning themselves off 3 times over the next 24 months. The computer calls this a "dipped headlight" but it translates to no headlights and another service appointment. After 1 visit to the dealer each month for 3 years, I went out and bought a Volvo V50.
Favorite Features
Interior & exterior styling & detailing. The car handles well and is enjyable to drive (when working). My friends who drive more expensive vehicles always thought the Avant cost more than it did.
Suggested Improvements
Improve upon the turbo lag. Better heat distribution in the heated seats. Inmprove the heating system so heat comes on before engine reaches opertaing temperature like other cars and the fan does not come on full blast with a loud, constant noise for several minutes.
