Audi's are they good?

Home  \  European Imports  \  Audi's are they good?

I am about to buy a car and I was wondering what all of you think of Audi? I heard that they are reliable but expensive to fix. I've been looking at 1996-98 Audi A4's and I like how they look alot. Your input is appreciated. Thanks.

i like them alot too, but like you say, they can be expensive to fix when something decides to say no! apart from that, theyre quite reliable from what ive heard!

I could be totally wrong, and I will double-check, but weren't older/relatively older audis considered to be unreliable?

I am gonna check on that...

the Older ones were, but then again, if your looking for aerodynamics, audi set the benchmark for aerodynamic co-efficiency, the least drag/most aerodynamic car (i do believe it was set on the audi 100, thats why they had the little sticker in the back window) i dont know what the result was!

I go to a mostly middle class school and then a few obscenely rich people blend in. Mostly all the rich kids drive Audi's though and then then the middle class kids get them at this really badass dealership. The owner gives genrous discounts to anyone that he knows that are freinds with his son. I know my dad has been really good friends with him for most of his life and I'm gonna get like $5,000 off my car. So bassically everyone one on the football team with his son has Audi's to. Honestly though 25% percent of our school parking lot consists of 2000ish Audi A4's and the occasional TT.

I'm sure you're into the Mercedes-BMW-Audi rivalry. They all produce medium-high class cars and, and quite frankly, any of them would be a good choice: they just have that german car performance. That speaks for itself heh? Anyway, I don't know if you have already decided to buy an Audi, but my favorite of those is Mercedes (my last car was an SLK 200 Kompressor, and before I had bought a CLK 200 Kompressor). When compared to Mercedes, Audi lacks experience. I mean Mercedes' legacy is quite impressive and they have surpassed some mistakes that are still made by Audi. Maybe this sounds like a bit of favoritism, but the truth is Mercedes have much more models than the other two makes, and most Audi's and BMW's look all pretty much the same to me.


i forgot that you're probably american lol. Well, in that case i think Audi is not so well established in your country, which may be a drawback.
