I've just landed a great job but it's 45 miles each way, mostly on the M1 so my current Mk4 Golf 20v Turbo needs to go.
I love the look of the A4 Sport but know little about the 1.9 TDI engine or drive-train etc. Ideally I'm looking for something that will average over 50MPG on a clear run and not sink too low if stuck in traffic. Also, I'll be putting around 500 miles on it every week so need to know what fails and what I need to look out for when shopping for an A4.
I like the idea of an Auto because of the miles and traffic. Do they suffer from much less MPG than manual, and if so how much?
I've been looking around the 04 plate price range but many have 100K+ mileage. Is that an issue on a well maintained A4?
I'll have loads more questions but that's it for now
