1996 Audi Cabriolet 2dr Convertible
I bought the car new and it currently has 33,000 miles and looks/runs like new. It's always been maintained by my local Audi dealership and the only problem was one with the convertible top - something with a sensor - when it was 11 years old. Other than that and a replaced oxygen sensor, batteries, tires, etc., it's only required regular maintenance. With gas prices soaring, I was shocked last week to discover I was getting 28 mpg on the highway. I've had two Porsches and a handful of other sports cars, but this is my favorite car. I may never sell it.
The car has classic looks. Despite the car's age, it still turns heads. It handles well and is fun to drive.
There's a little bit of cowl shake and the transmission seems a little odd on selecting shift speeds.
