Sooo fun to drive, when it's not broken
By paul on
2003 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I bought the car new over 7 years ago now. Should've known after 2 weeks when my AC compressor blew up that this was going to be a love/hate relationship. I've had it in the shop for: AC compressor, AC condenser, engine speed sensor, engine temp sensor, power steering pump, power steering rack, brake light switch, instrument panel malfunction, rear window regulator, and of course the common coil packs. And just now, the AC compressor blew AGAIN. And this is only off the top of my head. It's a shame because i LOVE driving the car, it handles like a dream, is great in the snow, but it's just NOT reliable.
handling, interior design (except for the cup holders and heating element), snow performance
interior: better cup holder locations and find another place for the heating element. Right under the steering column is pretty stupid. In the summer with the AC off, you get nice radiant heat coming up from the steering column. Oh, and just flat out, make it more reliable.
