1998 Audi A4 Quattro Problems
A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
Erratic turn signal operation can be a result of a failing turn signal flasher relay which will require replacement.
The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.
Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.

it's a good car car, but repairs can add up quickly. I wouldn't want to own this car without my carassistants.com subscription. It saved me like $2K in repairs last year alone.
Problem free until now. Has right rear brake caliper frozen. Replacing it, as of now.
I contintue to enjoy this car every day. I am midway through my second 100k mile chunk and still have no serious problems with the car. Occasionally there is something that needs replacement but it is what I would expect to need replacement at such a high milage. The only reason I rated the interior lower was because the cup holder options in the earlier model years of the B5 (97-2001) A4's are pretty pathetic. I think Audi was going for some artistic note to hold your drinks but the only art is the Jackson Pollock coffee stain you get on your pants when going around turns. Otherwise the interior is great.
The exhaust and emissions are not the greatest but this is not exactly a light car such as a civic either.
One thing I like to point out about Audi cars is the incredible response between the steering wheel and the direction of the car. To put it in comparison, when you drive most american cars, there is some slushy feeling when steering in car. Audi's have immediate response when you want to make the finest detail change in the direction of the car.
This is a well made car with plenty of room to carry things (even the sedan), an ability to handle any terrain including snow, and plenty of power for a luxury sport sedan.
I recommend A4's to any and all of my friends who consider buying them.
