I bought this car to use as a beater but after about 1200Km, I have found it to be my full time runnabout. I would rather drive this than my wife's 2006 Grand Prix, or my 2005 Sebring. It's just a better car, albeit a 14 year old car.
The awd its a good thing to have where I live.
Bigger rims, the 15 inch rims are ok but 15 inch rubber is getting hard to find so when the old ones are no good I'll get a set of 16 inch rims.
I bought this Audi after 12 years of age and you can't even tell that its 12 years old. Best purchase I ever made in my life thus far, and certainly never switching back to any other car made by any other trying competitor.
Heated Seats, Moonroof, Cruise Control, where could I end...
Make the Labor and Parts of the older and newer Audi's a little bit cheaper. But what else could you expect from a car that doesn't really need that much work on it.
I owe this car nothing. It has been the most reliable vehicle I ever owned. I would buy another one. I bought it in 1998 with 38000 miles and put nearly 100000 miles on it and other then routine maintenance, I have put nothing other then the temperature control module.
suspension, ergonomics, quietness, handling
temperature module is still not right and they cost over a thousand new although I bought mine used
This was my first quality car purchase and I am glad that I decided on this vehicle. It has been a great car. Reliable and safe. It handles great, especially in the snow and ice. The exterior and interior are near perfect which is pretty amazing for a car that is 12 years old. Everything works great except the cruise control which stopped working at about 95,000. The car is fun to drive and very solid. If you are thinking about purchasing a car like this, do it! It is worth every penny. The only thing major that I had to replace was the steering rack, about a $600 job. Other than that it has been fantastic. I would buy it again.
Red luminiscent instrument panels. All of the extras: moonroof, heated: seats, mirrors, wiper sprayers. Power everything. All wheel drive.
Needs a bigger engine for such a heavy car. Acceleration and top speed need some work. Gas mileage could be better.
This car presently has 223,000 miles
and its interior looks almost new - new
cracks in the leather, dash, etc. Its
engine is strong and has had only
normal service. The bodu is solid - no
rattles or creaks. Its catalytic
converter went out at about 190,000. A
very well-built adn comfortable car
