Question about 1996 Audi A4
What to look for
If you are buying a 2.5 TDI or 2.0 petrol model which has had a new cambelt fitted, make sure that the water pump was also replaced – if
it wasn’t and the existing unit fails, the engine could be wrecked. Both the S4 and RS4 variants are very quick, but check that you can afford the running costs before buying. Service, fuel and insurance premiums are all certain to be high.
And if you are thinking of going for an A4 Cabriolet, take a look at the state of the fabric roof, because even the slightest damage can be very costly for a trimmer to put right. Ensure, too, that the frame is in good condition, as replacing a damaged one will be expensive.
Additionally, there are three-point seatbelts and head restraints at every seating position. Other standard safety features include a first aid kit, rear child seat tethers and anchors, rear child safety locks, anti-theft alarm system, and power central locking.
Powering the Audi A4 3.0 Sedan is an impressive aluminum 3.0-litre, DOHC, six-cylinder engine with five valves per cylinder. This translates into 220 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque for excellent acceleration off the mark. Select from a six-speed manual transmission and quattro all wheel drive, or the versatile five-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. Quattro directs power appropriately to each wheel for optimum control.
The manual transmission allows the vehicle to go from 1-60 in 7.1 seconds and has a fuel economy rating of 18/25 mpg (city/hwy), while the Tiptronic transmission registers at 7.9 seconds and 17/25 mpg (city/hwy).
Combining all of the noteworthy assets above, the Audi A4 3.0 Avant Wagon adds roof rails to the exterior, while the interior is equipped with 4 tie-down eyelets, a luggage net in the rear cargo area, and a retractable cargo cover with luggage partition net. As well, the Avant Wagon features a storage tray under the river and front passenger seats, dual-height decklid opening, dual-level loading cargo floor, and a power outlet in the rear cargo area. The EPA luggage volume is 27.8 cubic feet.
Thats more then enought to be sure you donot run into high expense after purchase.
