Nice ride, when it's not in the shop...

2001 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


The A4 is a nice balance between a sport sedan, family sedan, and luxury sedan. PERFORMANCE: You won't blow anybody's doors off, but its 190 HP and 210 ft-lb of torque are enough to put a grin on your face from time to time. With the AWD, it handles great in all kinds of weather, fair or foul. The ESP is a bit overactive, however, and cuts in on even the slightest hint of any wheelspin. Fortunately, it can be disabled with the push of a button. INTERIOR: The interior is very comfortable and well laid out, and it's loaded with convenience features. There isn't much room for adults in the rear, but it's OK for kids. The trunk is very large and easy to access. The pass-through is handy also.

Best Features

Comfortable interior, excellent handling, good powertrain and transmission.

Worst Features

Electrics and rear wheel bearings fail with alarming frequency. These are nothing, however, compared to the CONSTANT front suspension failures: control arms, ball joints, tie-rods. You name it, I've replaced it - twice, and I don't abuse my cars. This was the only reason I got rid of this car.
