Great Car by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/21/2005. Trim: 1999 Audi A4 Avant 1.8T Quattro, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The car drives great. Lots of fun and eats up the miles. Unstoppable in the snow (snowtires a must). Good gas milage 20/29. Buying parts from the dealer is not as expensive as you might think (not including exhaust). Very tight even after 100,000 miles. Very easy modifications and lots to choose from.
Cons: The dealer experience is terrible and this seems to be a recurring theme with almost all owners (nationwide?). There were alot of trips to the service bay when under warranty, Audi Assured. These were annoying but at least free. Warranty a really good idea but forces you to the dealer. Now serviced at Volkswagen dealer, great.
Overall review: A really great car despite the problems. Even with the crummy dealers I would still consider another, hopefully that won't be for a while b/c this one should run a long time. Still no rust after 6 years in the northeast.
