2000 Audi S4 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

This car is very responsive in both handling and accelerating. The ride quality is still good, but may be a bit too soft for some prospective buyers looking at sport sedans. There is a wide variety of performance after-market parts for this car.


Favorite Features

Low end torque.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission linkage is a bit too notchy.

Review

I'm the original owner of my 2000 Audi S4 and every time I think about getting a different car; with the next drive, I forget all about it. This car is truly a joy to drive; sports car performance with sedan versatility. Fold the rear seats down and it can hold most anything I want to haul. Currently have 86000 miles with the original turbos and the car is chipped. You can drive the car hard, but be smart about proper warm-up and cool-down for longevity. This car requires proper maintenance and it can be expensive. But in exchange, the S4 rewards you by putting a smile on your face each and every time you get behind the wheel and hit the gas.


Favorite Features

Gobs of torque - classy, stealthy look with awesome acceleration and handling. Quattro - with the right tires (summer and winter sets), you have one of the fastest vehicle on the road in rain or snow. Cockpit layout and instrumentation color. Bullet-proof engine - very tunable for 300+ hp.


Suggested Improvements

Timing chain vs belt. Shifter feel and center display pixeling after time.

Review

I bought my Audi from my boss who needed a van for his family so I took it off his hands. I was like love a first sight. I've had it for a year. Dependable, great handling. Works great in the winter. Haven't seen a car around town to beat me. Really fast car and nice luxurious touch in the inside as well as the outside


Favorite Features

6 speed, really fast. It sends your head to the back of the seat when you step on it. Everything is digital on touch windows. Bose speakers. Nice leather on seats


Suggested Improvements

Spend some more time on warranties. I've replaced a water pump, timing belt, radiator, thermostat, radiator fan, and a front bumper but that was somebody elses fault.

Review

Purchased this car new and have really enjoyed it. Now that it's 8 years old I'm thinking about something else, but this one is still a lot of fun and I only have 65k miles on it. No major problems but have had issues with the navigation system (ok, maybe in 2000 it was OK, but really is a joke by today's standards) a hand full of sensors and what I'm told is carbon build up on the intake plenum that seems to need cleaning all the time.


Favorite Features

Excellent handling, even in wet weather. Reasonably fast. Good power throughout the speed range


Suggested Improvements

Dump the Bose sound system. My right rear speaker went belly up about a month after the warranty expired. The dealer hinted that this happens a lot. Nothing like paying a premium for the Bose brand and getting sub par quality

Review

I just purchased this beautiful car through a private sale, 180000 kms. The car is still as beautiful as the day it was made, everything works perfect. Great power and amazing handling. I love the interior design but there might be a bit too many buttons. Looks really good with aftermarket Pirelli tires and 18inch rims. Overall this car is a 10/10 for me. Hope you enjoy yours as much!


Favorite Features

V6 Twin turbo, tip tronic shifting


Suggested Improvements

less buttons, tinted windows

Review

This car is by far the best car I have purchased. I knew I wanted to go towards German Automotive, but I had no idea the excellence I was getting myself into with buying this S4. All my friends a drowning in their envy. I love this car.


Favorite Features

There's 6 gears, sleek look, fast as hell, BiTurbo, all leather, all wheel drive, TONS of safety features, extremely advanced computing system, climate control, heated mirrors, there's just so much that I love about this car.


Suggested Improvements

Well the only improvements that are done to my S4 are a cold air intake, racing exhaust system, it's lowered with 18" custom wheels, tinted windows, upgraded computer which gives the horsepower a total of 330hp. This car is NO joke.

Review

In both summer and winter conditions, this car is amazing. With a twin turbo and plenty of horspower it really moves. In the winter, with the right snow tires it handles amazingly well (better than my wifes huge landcruiser). Note, make sure that you put winter snow tires on this car if you drive in the snow. the summer tires that come with the car are dangerous in snow. Overall, I loved owning this car!


Favorite Features

AWD for the winter combined with a powerful engine and turbos for the summer.


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

This has been an excellent car. Snows/winter wheels essential, and it is like a cat. Mostly problem free... new headlight washer pump(s?) and oxygen sensor, the latter fixed under emissions control warranty. Otherwise just routine maintenance. Performance suggest torque/hp ratings understated, as it feels fully as quick as the newer V8 models. Interior is of ultra high quality materials and design, and looks/feels as new after more than 6 years. Whole car is tight and performs as new. An absolute bargain at today's used car value, even putting aside $ for possible eventual repairs.


Favorite Features

Power, especially at lowish rpm where most cars feel flat, classy interior, looks, size, handling, and solid quality feel throughout. Sound of trunk closing says it all. Rattle and squeak free.


Suggested Improvements

For those who need it, a little more room in back seat. Gearing is lower than need be given the torque avaiable (but therefore even 6th gear responsiveness at 60 mph or more is phenomonal as a result).

Review

Looks, performance, practical body style, reasonable price, and all- weather capability. Reliability of mine has been much better than some of the stories I have heard. Currently 103 kmi on it and the following has happened: water temperature sending unit replaced, three rear wheel bearings replaced (one twice), ABS module rebuilt, three rear Bose speakers replaced (one twice), cruise control needed electrical cleaner, headlight washers were fixed, front brakes replaced twice (normal), timing belt changed, along with all- associated hardware and a failing water pump (normal, but expensive repair), battery replaced (normal) and MAF sensor replaced. Up to 28 mi/gal achieved.


Favorite Features

HID xenon head lights, automatic HVAC, power heated lumbar front sport seats, AWD, 6 speed manual, twin turbocharged V6, power tilt/slide moonroof, large brakes, great ride quality


Suggested Improvements

improve fuel economy, improve reliability of electronics, shifter mechansm is a bit rubbery, some body roll

Review

I have the car three years and only mods were a APR chip and K&N. Big difference in performance and has been very reliable. Had to do timing belt and water pump at 72000 because water pump puked. Very expensive part of the ownership. Car is awsome and very aatractive. Used it for a work commuter for a year but found gas expensives forced car to become weekend toy.


Favorite Features

performance and handling. Sneaky fast over 20 mph


Suggested Improvements

Chain instead of timing belt. Cost of parts are scarey. More leg room in back seat. Car is more of a large two seat sports car
