Looking to buy

Asked by Mar 20, 2011 at 07:09 AM about the 2001 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Looked at this car to buy. ABS and parking brake light were on, rear tires were warped on the inside like the belts were broke. owner asking around $6000 with 137,000 miles. sounds a little high priced. what issues would make the rear tires do that?

The car needs an alignment badly. It also needs a new brake controller. Its not going to kill you that the light is flashing but you won't have any ABS. The brakes will work just fine though. $6000 is way too much.

Thanks David. now i know just a little bit more than before! i also think it had some mods and there is a Valero clutch system installed and a turbo booster gauge in one of the vents. i didnt know you could do a rear wheel alignment. good to know. probably wont purchase the car.
