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.

2005 Audi S4 Problems
A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
Various bushings—located around the subframe, suspension, and steering—deteriorate with age. A clunking noise when driving over bumps, accelerating, or stopping may be a sign of worn bushings.
Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.
A fluid leak may develop from the propeller shaft seal on the rear of the transmission. Our technicians tell us that replacing the seal will commonly correct this concern.

2005 Audi S4 Reviews
I had a 2005.5 Audi S4. I really enjoyed driving it until 104,000 miles when the timing chain tensioner went out and audi wanted to replace the engine for $18,000. It was our 4th audi. Never again. Will always drive american from here on out. Could not work with the dealer or Audi. The vehicle was well maintained and even the Audi tech said the motor was in great shape. I returned the audi back to Audi even though I owed $14,000 and paid the dealer $2,300 to remove the motor. Now Audi Financial wants their money.
