My 1994 Audi S4 is an exceptional vehicle. After 13 years I'm ready for another option. I will keep the S4 in the garage and drive it into retirement. I have had absolutely no mechanical problems with it. It has a classic design. No one believes me when I tell them the vehicle is 13 years old. Only have 102,000 miles on it and plan on putting another 50,000. My son has requested the vehicle be placed in his name in my estate planning. Power whenever you need it on the highway. I would not change a thing.
AWD for snow and wet pavement. Can take long trips with no discomfort from seats.
Honestly, would not change a thing. I wish I could buy another new one.
This is a super car that not only has
very high performance, but also is
extremely reliable. Sure if you are
stupid enough to add dumb performance
parts such as computer chips you will
ruin the car and make it unreliable,
but I have had mine for 11 years and it
has been virtually flawless. Okay I
had a PS hose or two replaced, but that
is it, all around this car is still
like new with no rattles and solid to
drive. Can't say that about many other
cars that are out there 11 years old
with over 110K miles.
Very quick, looks beautifully sporty,
great visability, and goes like crazy
in the snow. These early S4s even with
110K+ miles still handle exceptionally
well, and run like new with very quick
acceleration, and how about all this
and 25mpg too.
NONE. Today to get a car like this you
would have to spend upwards of $75K,
and so these early S4 are a steal if
you can find one for under $20K.
I bought my S4 based on performance and
longevity. What I didn't realize is the
cost of operation. I saw these cars
hitting 300k miles, many of them
modified for extra horsepower. Well, I
had many problems and could tell more
were about to surface. For a car that
had a sticker of nearly $50k you would
think it would be bullet proof
reliable. The drivetrain and quattro
systems are incredible and a blast to
drive in snow and push through turns on
dry pavement. The problem is with all
the other systems and components. This
car never went 10k miles without some
kind of repair or adjustment needed
even when new.
The S4 is a great combination of luxury
and performance. A unique 5 cyl. turbo
coupled with a 5 speed transmision and
all wheel drive, make this car
extremely fun to drive. It is great
fun to accelerate through the curves
and feel the quattro glue you to the
road. Hope to put many more miles on
