2004 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro 1.8 Turbo 20V from North America
Nice looking, but very cranky car
Not very good on fuel economy, eats tires, breakpads.
Clutch shakes when starts on first gear. Burns oil.
Overall is very comfy, real German handling, great look.
Would keep it after lease expires, but read mixed owners' reviews. It could start falling apart. Average time in service - once in 2 months. Very BAD Audi North America customer service - typical European.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

This car has cost me more than 2000.00 dollars to fix since I have owned the car, and that is only two years. I bought the car with 35,000 miles, and since then I have put on 40,000 extra miles, for a total of 75,000 miles, and by the way, these repairs do not include having the timing belt replaced, which will cost another 1600.00 dollars.
I will definitely sell the car as soon as I get it back from the dealer. Yes that's right, the water pump went up, lucky for me that was covered in my extended warranty I purchased for 1200.00 dollars.
