Of the 9 European cars Ive owned, the 94 Audi 100cs Avant wagon is by far my favourite. I paid $7,500CAD in September 2003 with 198,000 km (118K miles), from my local independent Audi/VW garage. Since then, Ive clocked 80,000 km of relatively trouble free miles with the exception of front end suspension work, thermostat replacement and brake work ($1900CAD), all common repairs for any high mileage used car. As typical of late Audis, the body and paint are solid showing only superficial rust - not bad for a car thats seen 14 years of winter road salt. As for performance, its no rocket off the mark, yet at highway speeds of 160 km, its like driving on glass - yeah it's all about the Quattro!

This is the best winter driving car I
have ever driven. In icy conditions it
handles so well you have to keep
reminding yourself not to drive too
fast. Things have had to be fixed and
yes very expensive, i.e. water
pump,fuel sensor,ignition switch,all
oil head gaskets. No major
mechanical. I've decided to sell this
and had been looking for minivans,less
expensive vehicles to replace this like
something toyota, for 2 months-and what
did I come up with--99 audi a6 wagon.
The driving experience is just too
tough to give up! So I'll try one more
time to see how many things have to be

Took a chance on a high-mileage vehicle
for winter-only use. Lost this bet big-
time: I've driven it a total of 14,000
miles and it's been in the shop 21
times (no lie!) and so far I've spent
$5,400 on repairs and there are still 3
nagging problems that can't seem to be
solved. Every repair takes three or
more attempts before it's finished (oil
pressure warning light problem has
taken 7 visits so far, and we're not

My 1994 Audi 100CS Quatto Avante Likes:
Everything! Superb styling inside/out.
Materials used are second to none;
after 172000 miles, you would be hard
put to tell mine from new. Handling is
excellent, I leave cars in the dust on
twisty roads. It's a car you fall in
love with instantly; no more Detroit
junk for me!
Dis-likes (mild): Gas mileage sucks.
17 in city, 20 city & highway combo, 22
highway. Weighs almost 2.5 tons & is
therefore very solid and safe-feeling
(like a tank!), but with only a 2.8 V-
6, mileage should be better. Power
could be better, needs a turbo.
Emergency brake should be stronger.
Gas pedal & brake pedal are too close
