View Full Version : Post your year and mileage!!!!

06-30-2004, 09:08 PM
This may have been done before, but I want to see how many miles you guys have on your cars. We all know how reliable audis are(sarcasm) ;-). I'm wondering if I should be looking into getting rid of my 2000 2.8Q with 80k and get a new audi. If I keep it, I'll do the timing belt soon. Basically, I'm wondering if it's worth keeping the car after it hits 90k. Please post year of car, if it's a 1.8 or 2.8, mileage, and sum up your experience with the car. No need to go into detail. Just state if the car has been good to you or not. Thanks in advance.

'96 2.8 with 110k. got the car a little over 2 years ago with 84k on it, and have modded it since then. the engine still very strong - imho.

06-30-2004, 09:17 PM
I have a 98' 2.8 with almost 93k miles and it runs great! Have not had any problems with the engine (knock on wood).

06-30-2004, 09:19 PM
99.5 1.8t 77k miles
Not in the mood to list the mods but the car pulls extremely well, noticably harder than a chipped A4.

-bought it a year ago with 50k. replaced:
timing belt
water pump
PS pump
rear passanger wheel bearing
driver's seat airbag
wastegate actuator
bailey's BPV
ignition switch

I plan on keeping it until the wheels fall off or 3 years after i'm out of college (whichever comes first)

06-30-2004, 09:20 PM
I have a 99.5 1.8T with a little over 55k. Only problems i have had were control arms, and fuel sensor, and i'm in the process of fixing the control arm thing. I love the car and will not give it up. I want to see who has the lowest about of miles and with the oldest car

06-30-2004, 09:32 PM
83k on my 99.5. i have had problems, but they were human error, not wear and tear. the car is reliable, not sure where you heard its not.

06-30-2004, 09:32 PM
2001.5 w/ 59,000

98 1.8t with 76xxx miles. No problems except for the crash i had yesterday ($2000 of damage), i still love it regardless

06-30-2004, 10:18 PM
'00 1.8tq with 47k. bought it 6k ago. Found out that it was probably in a wreck, but everything checks out great and it runs awesome.

2000 46K

06-30-2004, 10:31 PM
97 1.8TQ. 105,000 miles. Been modded since 30k. No problems. This car will be around for a lot longer. Still like new.

06-30-2004, 10:37 PM
96 with 119k. It's getting/acting old. Stuff needs to get fixed. If I didn't have my priorities straight, I'd get a new car.

06-30-2004, 10:44 PM

98.5 77K no problems except the damn inspection light at start up. Otherwise, clutch feel seems to be changing.

2000 S4 with 29k miles... problems i had so far: MAF, coolant sensor, lines throught instrumental cluster, bubbled up rear view mirror, boost doesnt hold at where it should be...might be because of ECU. Other than those problems the car has been great.

2000 1.8T 78K....it's been fairly good to me except when there was carbon buildup in the intake valves, it took 2 stealerships and 1 independent mechanic and they couldn't figure it out. Blamed it on my chip and cut-off. Finally a dealership in PA pin-pointed the pblm. But I did get new parts put in with the all troubleshooting they did,.oh but was also out of a car for atleast 3 months. Renting POS's suck.

07-01-2004, 05:27 AM
75k on my 99.5

07-01-2004, 05:28 AM
99 1.8TQ with 161,xxx KMs...
Runing decent...Needs Fluids and nice tune up soon...

07-01-2004, 06:10 AM
96,000 for my 98 1.8T. Still seems strong, though there is some belt noise that gets to me sometimes. Other than timing belt + control arms (and maybe ignition control module) the car seems pretty reliable if you take care of her.

07-01-2004, 06:41 AM
99.5 1.8t with 91,000miles on the clock ..... car runs perfect

07-01-2004, 08:04 AM
2000 1.8T with 42k miles, of which only 3k are mine so I can't comment much on reliability. I'm the 3rd owner, would like to know who the first Alabama owner was that put on the APR exhaust and thank them!

1998.5 1.8T with 80k miles, I just sold it as the original owner, never had a problem since warranty expired.

07-01-2004, 10:07 AM
99.5 2.8QM with 96K. Tons of freeway miles on this baby. Zero problems to date and I have decided to keep her long term as my work car. This way, I can get my Prosche (1996) in a couple of years.

I can tell that the suspension is starting to get a little sloppy, so the ride is getting dropped in about a month and I'm putting on 17" S4 wheels to match. Possibly controls arms as well.

07-01-2004, 10:23 AM
98.5 with 104,523. still on stock turbo. only problem is air compressor is shot. replaced soon.

07-01-2004, 10:27 AM
2001.5 w/ 68500. Got it end of March w/ about 63K n change on the odo and now its a PITA w/ problems [:(], but I still like the car. Just need to get it fixed n running good then Ill be even happier.

07-01-2004, 10:29 AM
97 2.8 with almost 50k on it. I bought it a couple months ago with very low mileage on it. it was a great deal

07-01-2004, 11:03 AM
99.5 1.8tQ w/ 61k. I've had the clutch replaced as well as the coil packs. I have 6 mounths left on my AA warrenty, so i am expecting loads of problems after that.

07-01-2004, 11:40 AM
98.5 A4Q 2.8 with 91,XXX miles. Its had the timing belt and water pump done. And its going back to the shop tomorrow to get some leaky seal taken care of while Im on vacation.

You have an oil leak? Did it start after the timing belt change? I am in the same boat!

07-01-2004, 12:44 PM
99 1.8t just hit 70k a few days ago. Had engine replaced at 55k when the timing belt broke early. Audi bought and installed a new engine out of warrenty! Giac Chip installed at 68K, right after the new engine warrenty expired.

07-01-2004, 01:18 PM
97 1.8t i have just about 804xxmiles, it runs great, replaced the timing belt and brake pads at 79thousand, and it runs AWSOME! I LOVE MY AUDI!

07-01-2004, 02:55 PM
'99 Avant 1.8T w/ 101K miles. New battery @ 73K (when I bought the car), TB/WP changed @ 75K. I've changed the tranny and rear diff lube to Redline, and pads and rotors. I replaced the snub mount w/ an APR unit too. Everything else was 'upgrades', so I can't say any other maintenance issues.

Great car!!!


07-01-2004, 03:55 PM
2000 50k

07-01-2004, 03:56 PM
Thanks alot guys. In jest I make the relaibility comment. But in truth, my car is a ROCK. I don't complain about minor things. As long as the car doesn't get me stranded(knock on wood) it's still a great car. I did the control arm, tie rods, and had a leaky camshaft seal. All fixed under warranty and while I was at work so virtually no down time.

Honestly, I've been looking around and there are only two cars out there that come close to the A4 (in performance, price range, looks, handling, and just having that special something). 3 series CI and.....actually only one. Everything else is either in the 50k range or just can't come close.

I love my car, and the B5 chassis. Personally,I feel comfortable having a warranty though. When I get close to 90k, I'll be looking for a new B5. Shout out to all who contributed.

07-01-2004, 04:12 PM
01 1.8T, just about to reach 58K.

Most likely it is the cam tensioner seals. Mine are going as well. It drips oil on the exhaust and then you smell it burning. Its is a job and a half to replace them. The cams must be pulled completely out in order to do it on a 2.8. It takes the mechanics most of the day to do both on an engine.

forgot to mention - had the front end "worked on"...(ends up one of the rims was banged up), had a vacuum hose replaced, had brakes replaced, new tires put on, need a new cig-adapter (its all rusty inside?!) and otherwise it seems ok to me and the mechanic...

2001 18.TQM 50k miles. Needed new front upper control arms, post cat 02 sensor, rear passenger wheel bearing, front rotors, had a vacum leak, some sqeaks here and there. I'm the second owner, bought at 30k. I love this car! Trying to decide how much money I should put into it because I want an S4...

04-16-2005, 12:04 PM

2.8 88K on her and still runs good. Had a new clutch at 82K and as well as a new transmission due to defective casting. Water pump and TB were the biggies. I need to do the wheel bearings but that is the only thing going wrong on her.

2001 1.8TQT 64000 miles bought it cerftified with 45000 miles on it around this time last year. Ending of last AUgust was taking it for a trip and the oil filter was clogged with sludge and it broke down on me an 1hr&half from home...that sucked.....they replaced the oil pump and then two weeks afetr getting the car back they replaced the turb. SInce then everything has been gravy.......but now i think my control arms are telling me something from all the squealing noises. We'll see what happens.

04-18-2005, 08:59 AM
I have a:

98.5 Audi A4 1.8T Q. with 86,--- on the body and 76,--- on the engine.

2001.5 w/ 97k and still going smooth. got it about 25k ago but there's no problems at all. Had to replace the clutch and a fan belt, but that's about it. Other than that, I'm running this car into the ground before I get a new one, I love it!
