Vehicle1997 Audi A4 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD
ReviewI bought this car mainly because of the look. I still love the look. It's too bad the rest of the car doesn't hold up. These cars are finicky. If you don't use synthetic oil you are asking for trouble. My car is dead after 150k miles due to oil sludge - which is sad for a car built in the 90s. I gave it regular 3k oil changes, but I used normal oil. That's only part of the problem. This car was in the garage every 6 months for this, that and the other. Expensive suspension failures, Cat converters going out, water pump, cracked fluid reservoirs, valve gasket leak, etc., etc., etc. Come on Audi - have some pride.
Best FeaturesThe look and the tight handling. The car would drive straight as an arrow without my hand on the wheel. The interior was also nice.
Worst FeaturesThe car was a gas guzzler, and slow. Audi should pick one of the two: either improve reliability or pick cheaper components.
