hello,

I'm new to the audi forums. I would like to know what should I be looking for when I buy an 01 s4. Because i found a 2001 s4 with 60000 miles for only $18000.
Is that price too good to be true? I did a carfax on it and everything came up clear. So I was just wondering about some of the Things i should be Looking for when i go take a look at to tomorrow. Thanks

I have asked them if they had any maintainence log sheet or records of maintainence and they said they didnt have anything on the car. I guess the timing belt hasnt been changed yet. is there anything else that is costly to change?

You know what they say,,,, if it's too good to be true,,, it usually is! :)
That aside, AllWheel gives good advice. Get the entire car inspected, compression test, etc....
If its a stick, have the clutch checked by a good mechanic for signs of wear, I've heard that these S4s have had some clutch problems.
Make sure it's not been in an accident. Check inside the hood, doors and trunk for signs of overspray (paint).
Are you buying privately or from a dealer.


Good luck

i went to the used car place today with my mechanic to take a look at an 01 s4 i looked up that was really cheap. but the salesman lied and said the car was never wrecked but the driverside fender and door was brand new and the whole front driver side was cleaner then passenger side. so i guess it was too good to be true.
I am still looking for an 01-02 s4 if any one has one forsale let me know.

CARFAX.COM really SUCKS A$$ and it proved it today when i went to look at the s4. Carfax said there was no accidents on the car but you can tell that the car has been wrecked. So you Really cant trust Carfax.

i think i no wat s4 your talking about, because i no this guy from an audi a4-s4 meet that i talked to and he was selling his black bi-turbo s4 for 18,000, and he takes really good care of his car. I was actually thinking of buying it but thats to much power for me because i'm 17 and not ready to maintain a car like that. so if it's still on offer i suggest you buy it because it's a gorgeous car.
