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.
I traded DOWN from a '96 A4 a few years
ago when a second baby made me
unconfortable with the high payments. I
saved a lot of money and got
essentially the same car. Not quite as
sexy on the outside but a solid, well-
performing german sports sedan. Clean,
crips lines like a well-tailored gray
flannel suit. Fast, if not quick.
Unimpeachable 5-speed transmission,
smooth clutch. Very reliable except for
some minor electrical issues.
Comfortable, if a little cramped for
most Americans. Tenacious grip in all
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.
