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.

Review

Simply put great car with a few killer
flaws! turbo blow-off valve not very
good at all (choppy acceleration).
ignition coils; alot of a4's are being
towed off the road for this little
kink that they forgot to think about.
and lower gears should ahve lower
ratio's


Best Features

heated seats will allway amaze me


Worst Features

better blow-off valves and transmission rethinking

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


Review

This ia very nice looking car, and
apparently well finished. But I have
taken my car three times to the garage
during the first year and it is still
there. If you need a part for your car,
beg for it. It will take more than what
you expect. If you open the moon roof,
then a few noises will compete with
your fine stereo system. If you drive
at low revolutions, then be willing to
deal with some annoying vibrations. And
not to mention the weird shifts in the
transmission.


Best Features

quattro, the style of the vehicle


Worst Features

Besides the ones noted in the review, I would suggest to add a button to turn off the air conditioner (you can't unless you move the fan back to zero speed), a better cup holder if you don't want to spill your coffee

Review

I'm currently own two Audi A4's 2000 A4
and 2002 A4, and had driving both cars
on daily uses. There are great
improvement in handling of the new 2002
A4 (B6) compared to the old 2000 A4 (B5)
plaftform. So far, there is no regret
from me with the two Audi A4s in my garage.


Best Features

Gear shift button mount on the steering wheel


Worst Features

More torque and reduce car weight
