2004 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Plastic parts used throughout the engine compartment get old, brittle, fall apart under normal engine heat. Need to take many things apart under the engine compartment to service. Plastic fuel lines kink easily and cause fuel pump failure. Exhaust system falls apart after 6 years. Glove compartment easily breaks off. New parts cost more than the car itself. Audi Stealership out to rape people overcharging $140/hr. like it was a new car. Stay away from used AUDI's and buya used Lexus, Infinity or Accura if you want a reliable used car.

2004 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This was by far my favorite Audi.
An 04 Ultrasport.
Fantastic handling.
Good thing I had an extended warranty - the car broke a lot - always something - the only way I would consider driving another Audi product at this time would be if I could have this car back - after repairing it month after month I sold it to buy a new Audi.
I traded that within a month of buying it.


Best Features

Awesome lights, interior, exterior lines, cornering, performance from a 4 cylinder


Worst Features

None

Best Features

I would say it looks good rolling down a hill since it is unlikely to be able to drive it self down but chances are you wont be able to stop at the bottom.


Worst Features

Make a car that will last more then 100K miles would be a good start. Mine has 104K

Review

Ok so i feel like the only people that write reviews are the people that have problems...... Really you are switching from a Nice loaded sports car to a cheapo Economy car with cloths seats?????? I myself have never had any problems and several of my buddies have never had any problems only on EDMUNDS do people have problems.....

Review

This car is better than any other. Has awesome stereo lots of bass sounds great. Has lots of power from a 1.8 t. Great sport suspension rides as if the car was riding on rails, love the smooth shifting. Really beats any other car. Great gas mileage, comfortable to drive over 1200 miles.


Best Features

Sport suspension, the smooth shifting pretty fast, no turbo lag, no problems, great awesome car


Worst Features

Audi should have put the 2.0t motor in the 2004 a4 - would be a lot faster
