I also have a 2002 A4 2.4. For the money spent the car is not value for money in my opinion. It uses oil, Audi tell me this is a feature of modern engines?? I thought this was a fault of early motor cars till the 70's.
The sun roof, factory fitted, causes buffeting at moderate speeds. It handles poorly at low speeds at close to full lock when too much power transfers to the front wheels.
There is always a minor problem, locks breaking, lamps failing, the radio had to be replaced as did the stering rack.
For those of you who love them, I envy you.

I have a 2002 A4, with 71,000 miles on it that burns a quart of oil every 3000 miles. Otherwise it runs fine. I purchased it used.

Be very careful, these cars will drain your bank account faster than a crack addict!

No it won't. You just have to be smart on buying. If you buy a dodgy one - not just an Audi, but any car, it will strip you down to the last penny. Get it checked and keep it serviced, and you will be fine. The problem happens when Honda type owners come to own them, who will only pay for petrol and not other maintenance - of course it will build up. This is a luxury car, not a student car.

I have an Audi A4, 2004. I drive it a lot to and from work. I love the car except it has begun to burn a significant amount of oil. I put in a quart and in less than two weeks, needed two more. It is now in the dealership. This seems very similar to the original statement of burning oil listed above. Hopefully, Audi can fix and avoid long-term problems.
