1997 Audi A4 1.8T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Puchased a Certified Used Audi A4 - 1.8
turbo to experience some German
Engineering. Unfortunately,
Engineering was the problem, as the
vehicle lost both a timing belt
prematurely causing $4K in damage, and
then the transmission gave out as well
for another $5K. The car had less than
80K miles at the time of both, and the
car was well maintained with one
owner. After contacting Audi, none of
the items were covered under the
warranty, because they were
considered "wear items", so the charges
were all out of pocket expenses. Never

Best Features

body style

Worst Features

For Audi to get behind the cars they build. Its clear from the reviews that they have issues with the timing belts, transmissions, and turbos.
