2002 Audi S4 2.7 turbo from North America


Fun if you have a garage full of mechanics willing to rip your car apart at any moment


Better question - what hasn't gone wrong.

In the 4 years I have owned it, I have replaced (in no particular order):


Wheel bearings.

Cam cover seals.

Head gasket seal.

Serpentine belt.

Timing belt.

Control arms.

Power steering cooler.

Rack and pinion.

Turbos (yes, both).

Transmission chip.

Head lights.

General Comments:

When this car runs, I love it. Problem is, I always have to keep my fingers crossed when turning it on.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2002 Audi S4 2.7L Twin turbo from North America


Performance and class


Nothing has TECHNICALLY gone wrong, but there are some issues. I hate the shifter. It's gummy and the throws are long and unsure. The pixels on my on-board computer in the gauges are starting to fade in and out. My girlfriend hates the car. guess that's a negative/positive.

General Comments:

Great car otherwise. Fast, nimble, great sound. It's heavy, and you can feel it in the turns. But it does what it is meant to do. I have heard of people having trouble with Audi service at the dealers, but I haven't taken it in yet. So I'm not sure.

Tires are wearing fast. Probably b/c of my driving. It's comfy on long trips, and very civil around town. I love the car.
