What should I look out for when buying used Audi A4 TDI?

What would be the main things to check if buying a 2009/2010 Audi A4 2.0 TDI?

Hi Paul,

There are few reported problems with the current generation A4. The 2.0 TDI is a rugged well-proven engine so just check and make sure that its power delivery is smooth and consistent - there could be injector or turbo problems if it's hesitant or sluggish. Gearboxes can get a bit reluctant (although they rarely break) and check any S line models carefully for suspension or kerbing damage.
