$$$$ to own Beware of maintenance costs
By JC Milbo on


1998 Audi A4 2.8 Avant quattro 4dr Wagon AWD


Bought the dealer's demo and got the 3-
year warrenty. At 45 k, the problems
started - front suspension - $ 766; tie
rod end and water pump - $ 1245; 60 k -
rear half shaft bearings - $1400;
transmission valve body $ 3200 and now
the ABS unit is shot and it's back to
the shop for another $3000. That is
$9611! Parts and service are very
expensive! I am selling and cutting my
losses. I'll be buying a Honda or
Toyota or an American car from now on.
What a piece of junk!

Best Features

I guess the perception of security with Quatro in rain and snow

Worst Features

Build a reliable auto. The US and Japanese quality is MUCH better and less costly to own.
