Vehicle2005 Audi A4 1.8T Avant quattro Special Ed. AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewPurchased the car 9 months ago with 49,000 miles; seemingly low mileage for the year. So far the car has needed 2 ignition coils, a cam shaft adjustment, the coolant seal/gasket replaced and a wheel bearing replaced after racking-up a whopping 4,500 miles. Luckily the car was Certified Pre-owned, so actual out of pocket expenses have been next to nothing, other than time spent waiting at the dealership. This is a great driving car, and it's still under warranty for 16 more months, but dealership maintenance costs would be pushing $3000 after driving less than 5000 miles. Love the look and feel of the car, but worried about long term ownership expenses.
Best FeaturesBeautiful exterior design. Decent gas mileage for all-wheel drive. We had a lot of snow this winter and the Audi handled better than my old Jeep Wrangler. Seriously, Quattro makes these virtually unstoppable. Not really a "fast" car, but peppy and fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesMaybe it's just bad timing, but with all of the parts that have needed replaced, I can't help but question the whole "German engineering" aspect.
