The Audi 90 Quattro is a pleasure to drive. I drive a combination of interstate (about 26 miles) and city driving (about 4 miles) daily. The high quality interior is very comfortable. Fuel economy stays right around 23 mpg. Many people mistake the car to be much newer than it is. As far as problems, my fuel pump went out at around 95,000 miles. I fixed it myself for about $200 (pump and filter). Highs: Quattro models are unbeatable in the wet/snow. Quality, comfort, safety, handling. Lows: Parts availability, Audi dealerships don't really seem to care about their used car owners (except the parts department) My verdict: Quality ride that inspires confidence no matter the conditions.
My favorite features include the Quattro AWD, beautiful paint, a very comfortable interior, headlights made of glass that will NEVER haze up like plastic ones, and the rear fog light.
The trunk lid wire harness is problematic. Go to a quality car-audio shop to repair the harness.
I live in upper middwest & quattro has
never let me down despite lack of
judgement when selecting unplowed
routes to work. replaced one front
ball joint ($200) one heater vent
servo, and routine stuff (brake pads &
oil). good cargo (40/60 fold down
seat) for its size (big trip to IKEA)
overall excellent value, still sporty
with excellent all conditions
handaling and more safety features
than other cars its age.
moon roof, quatro, 5 speed all analog
guages (oil temp & pressure!)
as every one else, more low end torque
for in town, Hi-way hi speed excellent
This is my 6th Audi & second quattro.
Apart from a minor rear-end collision
(the other guy's fault), a tire with a
separated belt, and routine maintenance,
this Audi has spent no time "in the shop".
The pearl white exterior still looks
great; people who don't know Audi think
it's new. We're looking forward to our
next Audi !
Quattro, heated seats, great A/C, sun
roof, 5 speed manual
We miss the in-line 5 cylinder engine
from our previous 5000S & 80Q.
