ReviewHow can I describe the worst car experience of my life. We bought this car used in '99 with 60K miles on it. Admittedly, we have driven many many highway miles and the car now has 196K on it but everything, everything has broken. We've replaced the brakes four times, two "super reliable Audi" transmissions (don't buy that sales feature), constant problems with door handles, constant front end problems, etc etc. We thought the car was cool and powerful- the best compromise for a growing family buying a station wagon. What we ended up with was a huge money pit that has not had the check engine light off for more than a week since we bought it.
Best FeaturesNice handling and powerful engine... good storage space.
Worst FeaturesEverything mechanical should be replaced. It's all bad, has all failed for us, and costs a fortune to replace from consistently horrible dealers.
