Never went one day without problems
By nlambert182 on


2003 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Bought my 2003 A4 with 95k miles on it.
It had already had the timing belt replaced.

The dipstick tube cracked and broke off when I attempted to check the oil.
The coolant flange on the back of the engine poured coolant constantly, and the turbo leaked oil.
Even after replacing the coil packs, fuel filter, and spark plugs the engine still had a rough idle.
Ended up replacing every plastic check valve under the hood to no avail.
Found that the crankcase vent tube cracked and broke off causing a vacuum leak.
Went to get in the car one morning after rain, and the floor was 2 inches deep in water.
Took forever to fix that issue.
Too many issues to list.
These things are LEMONS.

Styling Neat features

Worst Features

Everything. Use higher quality plastic under the hood (heat resistant), better quality plastic in the interior (paint peeled), and use real leather instead of the pleather that comes in them.
