1999 Audi A4 1.9 TDi
Bulletproof diesel engine
Just the usual wear and tear.
Replaced a control arm and a tie rod.
Heater stopped working; not a major issue in Sri Lanka.
This is the most reliable car I have come across. For its age it holds up really well. I have gone on journeys with a distance of 800-1200 KM and the car was rock solid. Pulls very well on hills, passing all the cars with a grin on my face.
The only place this car scores low is on its handling. Otherwise it's a very pleasant cruiser. Gets excellent gas mileage. On long journeys it does more than 17 KMPL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
