Pros

Acceleration, handling, really fun to drive, comfort, cabin serenity, emergency kit accessories, trunk space, kid seat considerations, trunk pass-through and split folding seat, looks, and overall grace of aging. It's better than a new mid-level car - for $20,000 less!

Cons

As you would expect even buying this new in '99 the cup holders suck. We bought it used, and so the aftermarket stereo isn't yet properly wired to the speakers - and the back seat wouldn't be great for adults on long trips, but fits a carseat and 2 boosters no problem!

Audi Made A Great Car In '99! — We more than feel safe and confident in this car - it's a flat-out joyous machine to own. The driving dynamics haven't degraded in the slightest. Stays on center easily and precisely carves corners with highly responsive pep and agility. Everything still works great, but the cup holders are poorly placed and tiny. We were a little concerned about going to a small sedan from a station wagon, but there's plenty of room for us, our 3 kids and all the stuff that comes with kids. The trunk is huge and cabin space is intelligently designed. A genuine pleasure to own, and we know it will hold most of its value even after we're done with it!

A Car You'll Definitely Not Regret! — What can i say? I love my Audi. The power and speed on such a small car as this one is amazing. Need a quick acceleration when turning or just to simply beat that guy next to you at a red light who thinks his car is so "cool"? Well that's no problem for this little A4. The braking is absolutely phenomenal as well, as it could stop on a dime, if needed. The handling is great! Turning, curves, hills, they all feel the same as there's no need to over-turn the steering wheel to do so. The gas mileage could be a tiny bit better, but it's not something that is over the top. Whoever owned the car before me must have neglected it like crazy as i have had to do a lot of repairs on it. It's not the car's fault, though. Even then, i did not go over $600 fixing EVERYTHING that was wrong with it. A quick tip, if you're going to take it to an Audi dealer to have it fixed, don't complain about maintenance prices. Do your research, ask around, get quotes, there are plenty of tiny independent Audi mechanics who charge you next to nothing to do the same, if not a better job than a dealer's mechanic. Ever since then, the car has behaved and been of perfect reliability to me. Another quick tip, don't buy this car if you're not too big on keeping up with regular maintenance stuff. If you neglect it, like any other car, it will start acting up on you. Seats are very comfortable and the heat seats feel so nice on my butt when it's freezing outside! Oh yeah, and the quality of everything inside, as well as out, is superb! Great job Audi, like always! The only con i have on this beauty, is that it isn't too big on family space in the back. Enough to fit kids comfortably, or friends if you're a young adult like me, but not comfortable enough to fit 5 adults.

99 A4 1.8t Quattro — Great all weather car, good on gas, but with any German car it can get expensive on maintenance. But over all the car has the power it needs to get me where i am going. The only real major knock i have on Audi is the poor quality of the ABS systems, other then that they are Solid cars

Pros

Safe, lux, reliable, sporty, top of the line (for the year), very comfortable, still in love with it.

Interferance design motor (timingbelt replacement/failure = big $$$), V6 is nice, but i miss turbo, still req's premium gas, nose heavy.

Sometimes Luxy Want To Howl At The Moon (cheeeeze) — Bought it to replace my 93 Talon TSi AWD. Love the Quattro system! Air, cruise, power windows/locks/sunroof, 6-way pwr adjustable & heated leather seats, 8 speaker Bose audio system w/ 6-disc changer, 5v 2.8L, projectors (now with 6000K hid's), 5spd Tiptronic trans (with steering mounted shifters), heated & tinted sideview mirrors, SUPER-low mileage. (65,000 kms)

1999 Audi A4 — I got this car in 2007 great car. all wheel drive the only thing it was a little slow on the accelerator but once it got going she took off turns at 50, off ramps at 90 great drive. another down fall was the body was low. good thing it was such a little car and it only took up 3 quarters of a parking space ive seen many people hit the parking block with my car O__O. gas mileage is 16 maybe ? better off driving a hummer but its turbo and its quick. handles sweet. Drive safe. Dont speed life is too short. Take it all in

Combine Performance And Quality — the performance of my car is very good for me. And then, it' s very smart and material used of the car is high quality. Next, its acceleration time suprises me. But fuel consumption is trouble for me. Regardless, i give up never it..

German Engineering — From the factory its peppy but with the GIAC 93 oct. tune, turbo back catless exhaust, forge splittR valve, and custom intake, it is a pretty fast car capable of spinning 1st and 2nd with crisp but not hard gear changes. It handles very well although there is roll to be expected since it is not quattro and the brakes are amazing. It gets over 400 miles to the tank even with all these modifications and that "WHSHH" of the blowoff/DV valve is so much fun to hear. It spolls the small turbo fast to 18psi and makes the car feel like a powerful v6 rather than a tiny 4. The interior is the best part and the car is built like a tank.

The car is extremely reliable. I've never had any major issues. Gorgeous color both interior and exterior are blue. Tan heated leather seats and moonroof make this car dreamy.

Cons

The gas milage could be better

Gorgeous And Reliable — Both my sister and I have Audi A4's and absolutely love our vehicles. The color alone is eye catching not to mention the heated leather seats, six disc cd player and moonroof. It is a joy to drive and handles extremely well. If I had to list any cons about the car it is better on gas when driving on the highway compared to around town.
