by reality5 on Jan 27, 2014 Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 New 2.0T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I have over 160K miles on
my Audi A4 AWD 2.0 turbo now & it runs as good as the day I bought it , maybe better as it is certainly broken in now .
I have taken excellent care of this car at the dealer & it is a fantastic vehicle . Fast , smooth & reliable it was just driven 15 hrs back from NCarolina through the mountains in a blizzard with no issues or slippage at all -0- . Have new set of Blizzaks on this year for a terrible winter & the car just goes & goes , the only issue is ground clearance .

I purchase an early 05 B6 1.8 about six months ago with about 110k on it. I have put about 4K miles, $4K into it so far. As soon as I replace one thing it throws two new codes, pretty frustrating to say the least.
I Love/Hate this car. Don't buy one of these unless you can afford to fix it, or fix it yourself. At this point it should be good til 200K but I'm not convinced.
-ECU- Coolant migrated through wiring into my computer and fried it.

-Engine speed sensor
-Shift lock Solenoid is out now but will still shift out of park if you know the trick.

Why did the fuel pump go bad after only 120,000 miles?
The Acura we drive has 160,000 and the fuel pump is fine.
$700 to replace it.
I know it could be worse, but I think the reliability could be better.
If you are doing all the required maintenance perfectly nothing should break.
A4 sedans and wagons get new bi-xenon headlamps along with a new satellite/navigation/AM and FM radio antenna. Satellite radio (XM or Sirius) is now optional on the A4 Cabriolet. OnStar is no longer an available option. A substantially refreshed A4 debuts as a midyear release, and boasts new engines, an upgraded chassis and revised styling.
Long story short, I have now moved on to the VW Passat 3.6 as it has all the options that I am interested in. While I was shopping around, I happened to run across the last 2005.5 Audi A4 quattro at ...
Finally, the A4 has all it needs to be the only total competitor to the 3 Series. It will have a sedan, coupe, wagon, and convertible plus a performance version (S4) like the BMW M3. The C Class, CTS,...
