96 audi a4 quattro

wat up dude! i have this ride and right now, id hate to say it, but its a nightmare. I've had quite a few problems....alot of electrical and a few engine. i guess if you maintain it right and have the money to take it to the dealer here n there youll be fine....

which a4 is it? petrol or diesel?
i have had mine 2.5 years, and its been fairly good to me
it a depends on its history
i would have no problems buying an a4 quattro again

when they go wrong, they can go very wrong, but with any used car, its luck of the draw really

audi a4

that black audi's clean! ...yeah i agree.my ride was a hand down.its a 96 a4 quattro 2.8 (petrol.). it has about 135,000 miles. it runs really well most of the time, but when i get problems with it, its pretty bad....but yeah it is always a gamble with used cars

It really depends what model you have and what you expect. I assume it's a 2.6 Quatty?

i have an 01' A4 Q and it's been pretty good to me. As all the posts above suggest, it depends on the previous owner/s. If you're good to it, it will be good to you.

i have a 96 2.8 Q avant
changed cam belt pulleys and tensions as you would expect had a bad rear bearing which can be costly to replace as you usually have to do the rear abs sensors which arnt cheap but that's about all the trouble I had with it which TBA I expected some trouble as its an old car but would tell anyone to try it as Q are cool and i love mine power road holding is second to none
