Hello,

I am thinking of buying a 97-99 A4. I have heard mixed reviews on how these cars hold up over the years - what are your thoughts? What should I look for as warning signs or things that may cause problems?

Thanks for your help

tie rods, control arms... take it for a test drive. is it shaky in somewhat high speeds? (50-70mph)

abs control module failure... this one is easy. look in the dash board. crank the car up... after all the usual lights come on in the dash and go away, is there an ABS light on and brake light blinking? also, does it beep right after start up?

timing belt... when was it replaced?

that all i can think of... search, helps more than i do...
