2002 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
The A4 is the most underrated sport
sedan out there. It's too introverted
for its own good. After 10 months of
ownership my fondness for the A4
continues to grow. Like the quiet child
in the corner, only time and effort
brings out the personality within. The
A4 is loaded with solid engineering,
rides like a vault on four wheels, and
tackles twisty roads with amazing
alacrity. If you think a certain
motor works in Bavaria is the only
place that knows sport sedans, do
yourself a favor and give an A4 a test.
Sometimes the quiet kid is the most
2002 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Overall I like the car, but 2 bad
ignition coils have really spoiled the
experience. Audi Customer "Care"
refused to replace all 4 coils on the
2nd occurence. This is a major problem
with the 2001-2002 models. From what I
have read, very few 2003 have had the
problem. Audi's Customer service is
poor at best.
recall for ignition coils/manual
transmision performance when starting
up in cold weather(tough to get car in
gear) CUSTOMER SERVICE POOR!
2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Have had a wonderful time with this car.
Looks like a beauty (inside, out), is
immensly fun to drive and is pretty well
priced for its class - its tough to find
a well engineered all-wheel-drive sporty
sedan with great interiors for around
Have had the car for over a year now -
with absolutely no mechanical problems
so far. The only time I needed to take
it to the dealer was for its 10,000 mile
check-up - which incidentally was
completely free and covered under the
standard maintenance plan
The in-dash 6 CD changer is awesome,
great acceleration at high speeds, love
the huge boot space and appreciate the
fact that the car offers heated seats
for all passengers - not just the driver!
The folks at Audi really need to
- provide power front-seats
- offer radio/CD controls on the wheel
- INCREASE the leg room in the rear
seats. Its improved some but there's
still some ways to go.
