2000 Audi S4 Sedan quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

Love this car! Bought it new in 2000
after test driving it.....the salesman
said I'd buy it and he was right! Have
50,000 miles on it and the only trouble
was a wheel bearing at 36000 miles.
Still drives like new. Put a Garrett
Industries chip in it and it has 310hp
and will drive up a wall with the 4wd.
Great in snow with 4 snow tires and in
the summer with 4 performance tires.
Beats the pants of my old 540 BMW at 15
grand less!


Best Features

Review

Have loved my S4 since March 04' -
would have chosen stick, but couldn't
wait to have one. I am just as happy
with this car since day 1. No
problems. Fast! Diplay panel is like
jet dashboard - lights up red, and all
passengers comment. I am still
finding features I didn't know existed
on the car. For winter geo's - must
have winter tires! Perf's only during
other seasons- dont mix with all
season - you lose the experience.


Best Features

Car fits like a glove. Favorite features are simply the interior layout. Once you know the panel, you really just focus on the road. And the performance is great. It's a surprisingly sporty car, despite what I think that a 4-door car is exactly NOT.


Worst Features

Oh, what a 2-door version would look like! Dreaming on....

Review

There is a reason Audi stopped selling
ars with the 2.7 liter engine. The
engine is flawed BY DESIGN.
The 2000-2002 S4s (B5 platform) all
came with K03 turbo chargers. Given
the way the 2.7 liter engine in the S4
was designed, this turbo does not have
adequate cooling to prolong it's life.
IT WILL FAIL, even if you don't race or
chip the car. When the turbos fail, it
requires removal of ENTIRE ENGINE to
replace them. This is close to $6000
in labor and parts. The problem can be
avoided in the future by replacing the
K03 with K04 turbos, but it's
expensive. This flawed design has
contributed to the lousy resale value.
DO NOT BUY THIS CAR! STAY AWAY!


Best Features

Black/Blue alcantara interior option. Good torque on the low end.


Worst Features

If you are stuck with this car because of lousy residuals, replace the K03 turbos with K04 turbos. Expensive to do, but the engine will last a lot longer.

Review

This has been the best car I have ever
owned. Fun to drive, but with the
comfort, solidity, etc. you expect from
a 40k car. 52000 miles & I still
absolutely love the car.


Best Features

performance, brakes, interior, looks more or less like a "regular" 4dr.


Worst Features

needs aftermarket tires better shifter (both easily solved aftermarket)

Review

The S4 is an outstanding overall
vehicle for someone who likes to have
fun driving but has practical needs
too -- like a fold-down rear seat,
decent trunk, four doors, etc. Also
fun to modify: for $600 I bought a chip
(APR) that adds 58 hp and 100 lb ft of
torque, making torque 358!!! Quarter
mile under 14 yet still a comfortable
ride.


Best Features

All wheel drive, powerful engine, easy 6-spd, one-touch up/down for windows


Worst Features

More room in back seat, tho that already has been addressed in newer models
