When looking for used Audi cars there are plenty of models to choose from. Which model you choose will factor towards what you have to look for when buying a worthy second hand model. All of us want the most for our money and want a car that comes with low running and maintenance costs and this has to be considered too. For example you need to check before hand such as how much the car would cost for you to insure it, what the most common faults are and how much replacement parts cost.
For instance Audis come with alloy wheels as standard and of course they can be very expensive, this is particularly so if the rims are large. Therefore look at the size of the wheels on the model you are considering buying, are they in good condition? Is there any damage that means you might have to replace them?
Of course when looking around for used Audi cars there are also safety concerns. As with all models of car there could have been “recalls” in the past which should have been dealt with accordingly. Recalls are concerns that the manufacturer has had.
If you are looking to buy the Audi A2, 3, 4 or 6 models then you should ensure that faults such as the airbag not deploying do not apply. With the A3 with ABS dating between March 2001 and September 2001 you would need to check the anti lock brake unit. If the models you are looking
at include the A2, 3 or 4 which have a 2 valve injector then there was concern over the fuel pump cover bolts on models between March 2004 and August 2004. With the Audi TT there were problems with a loss of directional control on cars between September 1998 and December 1999.
These are just some of the many problems that could occur and which should have been dealt with, which you need to ensure do not apply to the car you are considering buying. These are just the manufacturer’s recalls and there can be other problems that can occur with a used car and which need to be checked.
