2003 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
It's a great car when everything is working. Unfortunately, that is rare. Problems I've encountered in the approximately 35K miles I've owned the car: rear driver side power window fail - $400 rear pass. side power window fail - $400 (I live in mortal fear of operating the power windows now - I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the front ones go) CV joint - $1200 bottomed out and punched a hole in oil pan (ok partly my fault) $800 check engine light - faulty "crankshaft assistor" $1250 bulbs are difficult to replace. Do not buy this car if not under warranty. You will regret it every day you own it
It looks good. Quiet interior. Dashboard design
This car needs a 100K mile warranty because anything less will leave you vulnerable to very expensive repair bills
