2000 Audi A4 Overview

Obviously Audi is too busy devising great-looking, superb-performing vehicles to spend time trying to come up with creative names for its cars. Hence, you get the Audi A4 1.8T, which is the sedan or wagon featuring the 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder, turbocharged, 150-hp engine. Or the delightfully droll Audi A4 2.8, which, you guessed it, features the 2.8-liter, 190-hp V6 engine. At least you know what you're getting straight off the bat.

The 2000 Audi A4 wagons come standard as an AWD quattro, while the sedans have standard front-wheel drive with a quattro option. All models offer similar standard features that are pretty generous and provide a lot of high-end comfort for a family car. The wagons offer 31 cubic feet of trunk space even before the seats fold down. In 2000, curtain side airbags is a new option, as is a navigation system. The 2000 A4 also got a little plastic surgery outside, with a new grille and new body-colored moldings and mirror housings to add an air of sportiness. Fog lights were moved down lower on the front bumper. Inside, the center console and dash panel also got a makeover and the rear seats were made more supportive. In the 2.8, power driver's and passenger's seat is now standard.

Complaints about the 2000 Audi A4 have changed little over its lifespan. Maintenance costs are the biggest drawback, along with unhelpful dealers. Owners report poor reliability with the A4s as well, with transmission, brake, and suspension problems heading the list. A cramped backseat proves uncomfortable for most adults. What drivers love about the Audi A4, as always, is its precise handling, superior fuel economy, interior layout, overall classic style, the Tiptronic auto-manual transmission, and the powerhorse quattro AWD. Though initial acceleration is sluggish, drivers love the power and speed of the engines. Even the 1.8 Turbo sets some hearts racing.
