2004 Audi A4 1.8 turbo from North America
Worst car ever... will never buy again
TCM (Transmission Control Module) Very expensive and it's a common issue. 2nd that I am replacing. The cost is $2000.
Electrical problems, starter issues. Just not a reliable car to have.
Almost got me killed, because gears were slipping on the highway and reducing the speed of the car.
Audi is not willing to accept the problem, which is common with the A4 CVT transmission, and is ripping off customers for something that should have been recalled already.
Worst car ever. Please do not buy an AUDI... you will regret the experience, and the customer service you will get will terrify you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Manual transmissions have been around since the 1800s. Automatic transmissions have been around since the 1930s. But mass produced CVTs are the new kids in town... and have had some teething problems. If you don't want to be a lab rat, then stick to products that are tried and true... it can save a lot of grief. Sometimes a process has growing pains, and collateral damage is part of it.
