2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

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
$30,000
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


Best Features

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!


Worst Features

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.

2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I'm disappointed with the 02 A4. The
exterior styling is great, but the
interior is drab and monotone.

I've had many problems in 6 months.
Twice I had it towed to the dealership
with igition coil problems. The cruise
control and windshield washers also had
to be fixed.

The engine revs too high, even at low
speeds and the car could use a 6th
gear. The road noise, vibrations,
rattle & squeaks are excessive and the
overall build quality of the car
doesn't compare to that of my '99 A4.
The seats are also narrow and hard.

On the plus side, the all-wheel drive
is great. The handling is impressive
when the car is driven hard on winding
backroads.


Best Features

Exterior styling. Quattro all wheel drive. Handling. Ergonomics.


Worst Features

The overall quality and reliability needs to improve and it desparately needs a sixth gear.

2002 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had my A4 3.0 Quattro 6 speed for
almost 2 months and I love the car. The
only option I got is the sports package
but the car comes loaded stock. I love
the A4's handling, the Quattro shines
when the roads are wet. The power is
well suited to the car, not the fastest
in it's class but it achieves a very
good balance. My last car was a Miata,
the A4 has much of the sports car feel
but with the back seat and all of the
comfort items you would expect from a
German luxury model. And the A4 is
gorgeous inside and out.


Best Features

Quattro, handling, 220 hp, 6 speed, features for the price, maintence free 4years/50k miles


Worst Features

Not much, I had to get the radio swapped out because the CD player wouldn't eject.

2002 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Problems included: The rear
defogger didn't work and the rear window
had to be replaced. When it rained,
water would get trapped in the door
wells and gush out onto our shoes when
the doors were opened. The dealership
couldn?t fix this. Audi customer service
simply didn't care, and was often rude.
An Audi service manager admitted to us
that Audi was aware of this issue but
had no solution. Audi's official
position was that the car was
"performing as engineered". We recently
noticed knocks and rattles and an
overall loss of performance. The
dealership determined that the entire
transmission had to be replaced. At
12,500 miles, we had had enough and
traded it in on a Passat.


Best Features

Fun to drive, incredible handling.


Worst Features

Audi needs to fix the A4 water retention problem and improve the quality of its customer service.
