1990 Audi V8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

I bought this car in August of 04 and
it had 117,000 miles. Near perfect
condition inside and out. I've done
quite a bit of research online and I've
never seen a one with a bad interior
yet. The leather NEVER cracks. The
exterior is just about the same. I have
yet to see a rusty one. It's geared on
the high end so you won't get the fast
0-60 you'd hope for, but I had it at
125 MPH (smooth as silk)and it coulda
did more but I didn't want to see a
deer. On the other
hand it is a 15 year old car and there
is some nuisance electrical problems,
ie. radio, back window, AC.


Best Features

Highway ride...The Looks...The interior...The V8...The seats/adjustments...AWD.... and Hey! It's an Audi !!


Worst Features

More space between the brake pedel and the accelerator. Cupholders. A battery charge guage. Maybe more reliable power windows.

Review

Great car! Comfort, luxury &
reliability for less than $5,000. We
use it in the Rocky mountains. The
AWD & ABS make it perfect for winter
mountain driving. It's like a
luxurious SUV without the high
rollover potential!


Best Features

All Wheel Drive, ABS, V8 for under 5K. The V8 mileage is 150,000 and it still gets 22 mpg with a V8 engine! And what is the top end on this thing? It still throws you back when you step on the gas at 100mph! 14 years later, it is still waiting for its chance at the Autobahn!

Review

I was actually looking for another
200tq, but decided to get the V8 after
I had the pleasure of driving one. I
can't express enough how great a car
the V8 is. I live in NH and travel to
NYC about 5-6 times a year. I have
driven it at 125 mph (no traffic, good
radar det.) and it is flawless. 15
years old, 160k miles. Added sat
radio, and 16" wheels. Audi was not
selling many cars here in the early
90's, so great cars like this went by
basically unnoticed.


Best Features

The body style never looks outdated. No badging from the factory. Quattro. Interior fit & finish better than any other car in its class. Exlcusivity.


Worst Features

They did improve on it in 1991 by bringing in a man trans.

Review

I bought this car for $4,000. Quite a
bargain considering it cost nearly
$50,000 14 years ago. What a steal.
I was looking for an inexpensive
package of luxury and all wheel
drive. And this car is all of that
and then some. It has every possible
option (excluding navigation) that
today's luxury cars come equipped
with. And the V8 sticks to the road
in any weather condition. Still no
rust and only minor mechanical
repairs. Great value!


Best Features

Of course, quattro all wheel drive. Very comfortable heated leather seats. Lots of wood grain. Plenty of cabin room. Great Euro exterior design (no badges - I'd rather let people guess the model!).


Worst Features

Lacks enough power to move this 2 ton beast the way I'd really like. For more performance, I would suggest getting the '92-'94 model with the 4.2L V8. No cupholders. Reapairs are pretty pricey at the shop. Needs 17" or 18" wheels.

Review

The 1990 Audi V8 clearly demonstrates
what quality design, build, and
materials can do for a car. The
attention to detail is prevalent
through out. Though this car is 13
years old (review written in '03) it
demonstrates virtually no wear inside
or out. The materials used in
manufacture are cleary top notch.
This car does not squeak, rattle, or
succomb to wind noise. For its size,
it has strong acceleration and good
braking. Interior comfort is well
above average. The '90 V8 befits its
name as a flagship.


Best Features

V8, seating comfort, sound system, anti-lock brake shut-off feature (great in snow and loose gravel, heated door locks and seats, headlight wipers


Worst Features

Only improvements for this car would be for Audi dealerships to take some customer service lessons from Infiniti dealers.
