Downhill After 45K
By disappointed on


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


After 45K miles, my 2002 Audi A4 1.8T (now at 53K miles) began to require very expensive repairs that I never needed for other vehicles I owned with over 100k miles. I had to replace the phlange that connected the coolant system to the engine, the steering rack and pinion, the windshield/headlight washing fluid pump and motor, and the dealer says that I need to soon replace engine gaskets. I do not know much about the mechanics of cars, but from my experience, it is unusual that such major repairs would be required on a vehicle that still has relatively low mileage and is owned by someone who is very diligent with all of the routine maintenance. Wish I had purchased the extended warranty!

Best Features

Beautiful car. Handles well.

Worst Features

Audi needs to improve the quality of the parts in the A4.
