2004 Audi A4 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I have now owned my 2004 audi a4 3.0L with ultrasport package for a bit over 4 years.
This car is a blast to drive, and living in Minnesota, it is the best vehicle I have ever driven in the snow.
Having said that I have been most definitely disappointed with the reliability.
It seems every 4-6 months I have a major repair, not including the little things that I take care of myself.
New tires every 1-2 years (15,000 miles/yr)Timing belt at 75,000, new radiator fan, new clutch and flywheel.
I have spent $4000 in repairs on it this year alone.
So beware and know that it may be cheaper than some, has great style, and is a lot of fun, but you may be better
off with something more durable.
