2003 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
I bought this car used with 50,000 miles. I loved it for the first couple of months, until things started going wrong. I had to replace all the ignition coils, fuel pump, check valves, broken moonroof, broken window regulator, broken cupholder. Oh yea, and just a few months ago there was a fire, cost over $5000 worth of damage under the hood, thank goodness insurance covered it. They said either an ignition coil or the wiring harness had a malfunction. When my coolant tank cracked and wouldn't hold coolant, I decided it was time to trade it in. I loved the car, but I cant afford to keep fixing it and I don't want to be worried all the time about something breaking or catching on fire.
Fun to drive, exterior design, comfortable.
make parts that don't catch on fire or break, lower cost of parts, better quality interior plastic parts
