My dad gave me this car a year ago. Its performance isn't impressive 0-60. In quite a while (10.3 sec) it was comfortable until the padding "parted" around the frame of the seat. The build quality is sub-par the interior made of the worlds cheapest plastics is coming apart piece by piece. The power locks work 30% of the time the Windows barley work, but the engine keeps going. I'm getting 160 miles a tank the mpg is dreadful. Its expensive to insure because its a sports car even though it barley moves. However the exterior is a triumph in styling 10 out of 10. I cant explain why but I love this car and I love driving it. Maybe it's the t-tops.
Appearance, engine reliability, seats (in good condition) are excellent and I'm 6 foot 3
MPG! bad gas mileage wouldn't bother me if 1-i move fast or 2-have a truck this is neither
Dude get the damn thing fixed.
I got a 95 Convert Z28.
117,000 A4 with 3.23 gears.
At 70 I get 28 mpg with cruise on the highway.
In mixed I get 25mpg if I squeeze it, 21mpg if I screw around a few times. With CAI, catback, and a tune my best 1/4 is 13.6.
I should hit 13.2 with headers and 1.6rr.
Last night through town I counted 2 cars that could beat me, 4 maybes and over 100 that don't stand a chance. Its my daily driver and I get about 250 miles a week on a full tank.
So....go get it fixed
