THIS CAR IS VERY GOOD ON GAS AND ISVERY
RELIABLE,I'VE ONLY HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY
FUEL PUMP AND SOME ELECTRICAL
SYSTEM.WITH THE MILES YOU WOULD THINK
THAT THIS CAR WOULDN'T DRIVE GOOD BUT I
TAKE THIS CAR UP TO BALTIMORE FROM
NORTH CAROLINA TWICE A MONTH AND IT
RUNS LIKE A CHAMP!!!!!.ON A FULL TANK
OF GAS I CAN GET THERE AND RIDE FOR
ABOUT 200 MORE MILES IN BALTIMORE
BEFORE REFUELING WHOAAAA!!!!!!
Owned 5+ years. Purchased used at
122,000 miles, now 200,000. My 2nd
Audi. I do all of my own work on
the car. Love the car. Extremely
reliable and a pleasure
to drive while serving as a workhorse
commuter car. Never garaged and
sits outside in all 4 seasons.
Interior remains tight and dry
and still smells faintly new. Body and
finish are near perfect - no
rust/corrosion anywhere (galvanized
body). All seals perfect. Original
starter, alternator, radiator, heater
core, etc. Only changed oil, brakes,
tires, filters, belts, light bulbs.
Never leaked any fluids and continues
to start every time and run rock
smooth and reliably. About 21 MPG
For such an old car, I have had to do
relatively little to fix it. The
interior is gorgeous, a luxury car for a
small budget. I have had a few
electrical glitches, which are common in
this model. Overall I would buy 2 if I
could, but the other one would be a Quattro.
I bought this car with 75,000 miles on it about 12 years ago. I drove it for about 20,000 miles and started to have issues with many things. Brakes, power steering pump (that also powers the brakes! This must work!), radiator, air conditioning, door locks, muffler, catalytic, you name it. I decided to replace them all as they failed. I spent a bit, but the car now has over 240,000 miles and is running like a top. It's on the 4th power steering pump. These seem to be an issue with some of these 100's. The headliner is falling down and I had to glue it back up. The AC does NOT like 134 and you have to run 12a or REDTEK out of Canada. All in all, it's simply a very well built car. I love it!
