1998 Audi A4 Quattro 1.8T from North America
Expensive to maintain not worth it
Driver side window stopped working at about 95,000 miles, cost $400 at Audi dealership, got it done for $300.
Front right CV axle replaced @ 100,000 miles along with inner and outer tire rods. $600 Total.
Time belt and tensioner replaced @ 100,000 miles. $650 Total.
Master and slave piston (without that once you sink the clutch it stays on the floor, making it impossible to drive as the clutch doesn't come back up) $650 Total.
Key-less entry and central door locks stop working @ 110,000 miles. When the central locks, and key-less entry stopped working I realized the gas tank wouldn't open. So I had to pry the latch open, and rig it to stay open. $600 Total.
Turbo went @ 100,000 miles Cost $1800 to replace and have to replace the heat shield another $500.
The car was quick when I first got it.
Great looking car.
Very comfortable cabin.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
