2009 (B8) A4 - Questions
« on: Sep 15, 15, 13:55 »
Hey Everyone,

I am looking at an A4 (2009) and buying it by end of this week. Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on them. The good, bad, etc...

From what I have been reading and spoken to a few people that have varying B8 A4's they all love them. There are a few minor issues, one was apparently bad O-rings causing possible oil leakage... but outside of that nothing really major. Some had vacuum leak issues, but that was very few and far between.

Thanks!  :thumbup:

I have a 2009 A4 Avant, it's been  very good for the 3+ years I've had it.  Had a thermostat replaced in addition to the regular maintenance.  If your interested mine is actually forsale.

Good to know, thanks for the heads up. I am not interested in an Avant no, thanks! I have seen a LOT for sale which I thought was odd but not nearly as many sedans.

I know there is some injector issues with the cars but i believe it is covered under and extended warranty.

Also heard the intake manifolds can be an issue as well.

Intake manifolds - usually recall/warranty by now
Oil consumption - usually recall/warranty by now

2009 is a pretty solid car without too many issues, it's just too bad they don't have the nice LED tail lights like 2010+ would have.
DAS. Expect nothing.
