2001 Audi A4 Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 35 reviews
The Audi A4 hit the market as Audi's value-minded line, considered an "entry level" family car, but with the extra luxury touches that give Audi an extra edge over competitors. The 2001 A4 comes as either a sedan or a wagon, depending on your family's needs. All wagons feature the much-loved quattro system, which provides more stability and traction in rough conditions and is fearless in the snow. Quattro is an option on the sedans, which come standard as four-wheel drive. All models have ABS, traction control, and get an electronic stability program for 2001.
Addressing some complaints about weak horsepower, Audi gives its 1.8 4-cylinder turbo a 20-hp boost to 170. All 2001 A4 models get side curtain airbags standard this year (only optional in the previous year) and shifting buttons located on the steering wheel. An optional navigation system is only available on the 2.8 models. Audis have earned a good reputation for their driving performance. If not exactly a firebrand off the line, the A4s cruise nicely on the highway, offering a balanced, precise, yet light handling, built on a firm suspension that keeps you safe and fairly shudder-free. Though it gets good fuel economy, the Audi A4 manual says to use premium gas, which in today's market can offset any savings the 19/26 mpg will give you.
The turbo is always fun to drive, giving the engine an extra kick and aggression upon acceleration. Drivers also love the durability of the 2001 Audi A4, which shows little wear and tear over the years. The interior styling is both comfortable and well-thought out, with a red-illuminated dash that most owners like. Many have found problems with the engine, particularly the engine coils, and also some electrical problems. This always leads to costly maintenance and unsatisfactory experiences with dealers. The Audi A4, though built for four, suffers from a lack of legroom in the backseat.
