With such a complex suspension, repairs are often difficult, time consuming, and expensive. Many A4, A5, Allroad, and Passat owners will try to save money by only replacing the single control arm which exhibits the most wear. But this rarely, if ever, restores the stability of the entire suspension and many of our customers become discouraged when the symptoms of a worn suspension persist.
The Audi A4 had the distinction of being the first vehicle from the Volkswagen Group to be powered by the now legendary 1.8 liter 20 valve turbocharged engine which has gone on to be used in nearly every model line from each of Volkswagen’s major brands. If you think about it, there probably isn’t a day that goes by where you don’t see a car powered by one of these engines. In fact, Volkswagen is still producing it to this day while it continues to provide motive power in all of their brands as well as their industrial offerings. There’s even a version that is used in the FIA Formula Two Championship capable of 450hp!
