For some reason, any replacement on a A4 costs $1000
Starter gone when bought, replaced at 85,000 miles.
Timing belt started slipping at 90,000, and replaced at 100,000.
Clutch went out and replaced at 115,000.
Power steering leak fixed at 125,000.
Water pump, thermostat, coolant overflow tank, and lower radiator hose needed replaced at 140,000.
Both front brake lines ruptured and needed replaced at 165,000.
Front ball joints, front driver seat, taillights & headlights, all need replaced now from normal wear at 185,000.
This is the only car I have said "I Love You" to everyday we are together.
This is the fastest 190HP you can find in a car.
The front suspension is well thought out, and you can feel their intentions on the four-link transverse mounted drive train.
I only feel this assured in a turn I thought in a RWDer.
Eats up miles on a long trip without ever being over worked.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
