Fun to drive but MAJOR Flaws
By wazzujon on


2005 Audi A4 1.8T Fwd 2dr Cabriolet (1.8L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


I bought the Audi with 36K miles 2 years ago. It now has 53K miles. While it was under warranty It was in the shop 3 times for semi major issues. I didn't care because it was under warranty and they gave me loaner cars. Then at 51,500 Miles the CVT TRANSMISSION went out. Yes AUDI paid for half, but they gave me 3 days to tell them to I would accept their offer. SO I had to pay $3500 out of pocket for something that would have been under warranty two months before. If you Google Audi and CVT transmissions and TCM's you will see there are hundreds of Audi's complaints about this. Yes it's fun to drive though.

Best Features

Update the navi. I hate having to spin the nob to input letters and its not very intuitive. Need to install Blue tooth.
