2001 Audi A4 1.8T Avant Quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


First few years car ran smoothly and was a lot of fun to drive except rear wheel bearings needed to be replaced twice by dealership - luckily still under warranty. Rims allowed snow/slush to build up which made car shake when driven in winter. When 2-3 years old, rattling sound was heard. Brought car in several times and was not given diagnosis. After 75,000 miles (no longer under warranty), dealership was magically able to diagnose the problem: needs a new cam adjuster (dealership claims no prior awareness of problem) Car has 100,000 miles and has had all four wheel bearings (and ball joint) replaced again by local mechanic. It is no better than tupperware - disposable after 3-year-use!

Best Features

When it was running well, it was a lot of fun to drive.

Worst Features

Better quality wheel bearings and ball joints. Reduce # of ball joints needed from 4/wheel to 2/wheel. Better, more honest service.
