Solid Car but Know it well
By Damsaudi on


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


Purchased the car with 118,000 km,knew it needed a few things when I got it but was excited to get such a nice solid car.Have replaced everything on the entire vehicle within a year ($25,000)mostly replacing with performance parts but only when needed. The car always pulled strong in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, little weak in 4th and 5th with stock turbo, but throw in a k04 and a tune and it really gets interesting. Fuel economy will surprise you, rip hard on it and a tank (60l) will be gone in 300 km, but cruise on the highway and expect close to 850-900. Small electrical things pop up but online there are many helpful resources to troubleshoot. Its a maintenance intensive car but with care reliable

Best Features

Quattro!, turbos are great and fun, with lots of small mods that you can feel. Quiet ride and many instruments/warning equipment. great stereo

Worst Features

suspension design is a little touchy. needs a bit more power to impress. stock wheels are too small and stock ride height is too high
