Very Good — i like the kick it gives off when i press the gas, this car really picks up speed when needs to. This is a great car for someone who is just starting out driving or just needs a vehicle for a year or a few months to get from point A to Point B without problems.

Pros: very tight and you can feel the entire car just by sitting upfront. easy to handle, i think its just a great car to have but the year is lacking what i need in a vehicle and that is multiple options on the dashboard.

Cons: i dont know if its the fact that i drive all day but i would say im usually visiting the gas station frequently.

Great All Season Car — Comfortable solid commuter. Style has held up well over the years. Handles well. Fold down back seat gives it lots of utility. Can hold a lot of stuff in the back with the seats folded. Great foul weather transportation. Good size

Pros: Good handling. Especially great in snow with the right tires

Cons: Expensive to fix. A little low on power compared to newer models.

Love It When It's Running — back seat leg room is poor, oil leaks and break repairs were costly at first; fun to drive; fuel economy is good for a 6cylinder, AWD car. front seat/driving comfort very good; handling/power very good also; parts are fairly easy to find

Pros: love driving this car, absolute joy to drive

Cons: i bought it used, prior owner obviously didn't do the basic maintenance so i have put a lot into getting it into shape, have had quite a bit of downtime getting it fixed, not to mention cost

Ballsy — love the handling, love the all wheel drive. this is a car that likes to go fast and keep you glued to the back of your seat. i have not had a chance to drive a 2 wheel drive model but the 4 wheel drive model sticks to the road like glue.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: car runs good and handles great. the engines last quite a long time if you keep it well maintained.

Cons: Calipers tend to stick if not driven which reduces braking power. parts are expensive new like most audi's but not as bad as the later models in the 2000 range and up

4 Lanes Of Virgin Snow Calling Me Out While Everyone Is Crawling In The 5th Lane — The day after I completed the engine swap from the original AEB to an ATW (hope that's right, been a while) I left New Mexico headed to Seattle. In the trunk was the AEB engine and a 2.1L VW Vanagon engine and all the accessories. She ran like a top. With proper maintenance, this lightweight tank will remain reliable.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 29 MPG Hwy. In it's element in deep snow. Visibility. Handling. Price.

Cons: Head gasket.

Honestly, If I Agreed With You We'd Both Be Wrong. — Didn't have time for a full review, but I can offer you this advice. If you are planning on buying one to modify, used with high-miles, perhaps I would recommend a different car; or at least one with the 1.8t four cylinder. ...Still think it had one of the best sounding V6s. (You must figure out an optimal exhaust setup. I had to experiment with mounting one muffler in several places from towards the front, to the rear.) I've found mounting it where the OEM end-muffler was, is the best place. (Obviously, why Audi put it there in the first place...)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Had quite a bit of character. The 30 valve V6 sounded incredible with the exhaust set up. (5 valves per cylinder) (w/ cats, & only one muffler mounted past the rear wheels)

Cons: 0% modifiable. Audi designed this car to be what it was from the factory, and not littered with aftermarket parts.  That is, unless you had an unrestrained budget.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
