just buy something you can afford, for cash- you should put off the gratification until you can afford it- most banks won't lend something as small as 4 grand anyway- they don't want to own a broken down car- and for god's sake, do NOT buy an old Audi- a word to the wise-

When it comes to audis and volkswagons they have as much problems as the next car. Over all they are built preaty solid but any car worth its money will be worth 3-4000$ Anything below that you are probly getting a fixer upper. Some things to ask about a vw or audi you need to ask is things like when was the last timing belt change ? because they only last 90,000 km and usually if the person is not cheap they put in pulleys and water pumps at the same time. Constant leaks from the cam and head cover seals is another issue for a higher mileage and older modal audis. Most audi's can be fixed easy and if you are at least a little mechanically inclined you can get a Haynes or Bentley manual and do repairs cheaply yourself. If you want to know what to avoid when looking for a car in an audi make sure you road test it and check for signs of vibrations, trouble in shifting (use the tip tronic to Manually select gears) stuter at idle, and grinding and squeaking sounds. If some one has taken god care of there care mechanically like i have it will be mechanically sound and require little to no work to certify it. If you have no idea what to look for mechanicly take it to a certified VW/Audi Specialist you can trust and have them do a check up on the car before deciding to buy it. and always remember jsut because it looks nice on the outside does not mean it will run and sound the way you expect. I have seen alot of audi's on kijiji with broken tranys and engines due to poor maintenance for 900- 2000$.
