1998 Audi A4 1.9 diesel from UK and Ireland
Would recommend if kept an eye on
Clutch went, while towing a caravan; took the flywheel with it, £1200.
Lower door trims fell away from car. Door clips OK. Trim rotted from behind. Audi sell these by the bucket load.
Rear wash wiper packed up; new motor, £60. Don't get caught like me! It's an easy fix, I've since found out; spin the plastic drive cog round 180 degrees and use the other side of it.
Wiper motor squeaky at 110.000 miles. Second hand one fine, nasty old job to do.
New battery at 130.000, as awkward as the wiper motor.
Bad bits: seats hard, sun visors gappy, only cassette player. no CD. Alloy wheels/centre cap flaky.
Good bits: very well made, electrics good, wiper pattern good, had a lovely solid feel to it, oil/air filter change easy, done every 5000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
