1998 Audi A4 2.8 Avant 4dr Wagon


Bought new; 69,000 miles in 5 years.
Very few problems, radio replaced, new
dash cover, all under warranty. Average
24 mpg in mixed use driving. Ride
quality has deteriorated in last 10k
miles, rear dampers need replacing.
Great highway car; relaxed, quiet, very
comfortable. V6 power adequate. Dealer
experience very favorable (Commonwealth

This is my second A4, and they both have
been excellent. None of the repair
nightmares so sommon on this list. My
cars are very well maintained, and
driven sensibly.

Bose stereo, driver's seat, and overall
interior ambience have kept me enjoying
these cars for this long (8 years and
120,000 miles between the two).

Best Features

Interior in general. Front seats superb. Bose Stereo a must. Quality of interior, and build quality in general is excellent. This car shows wear as if it is 2 years old and has 30,000 miles!

Worst Features

Rear seat room very tight. Ride quality past 50,000 mile mark deteriorates quickly (rear dampers needed) Car is sprung too soft, and underdamped in general, but not to the point of turning you away.
