1997 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


This car worked well, but we had a number of small issues with it. The drivers side window repeatedly slipped off the track, the transmission has been not shifting as crisp as it should. Its a good car if you get on that has been taken care of. Handles well, but there is a lack of power. AWD system works great in MN winters. Would buy this car again, but make sure the timing belt has been changed!!! If it isn't, you can bend a valve and it will be $3000 later before it will be back on the road.

Best Features

AWD, car feels light and somewhat agile, great suspension over rough roads.

Worst Features

More rear legroom, more power
