1993 Audi 80 2.3E
Sometimes just go for a drive just to drive it
Vacuum assist pump started knocking 2 days after I bought it.
Roof lining fell.
Air conditioner compressor bearings are noisy as of last summer.
Central locking has decided not to work every now and then for the last couple of months.
The car is front wheel drive and can suffer understeer when pushed, but that may be my enthusiastic driving. All in all, it handles well and is a pleasure to drive at any speed.
The 5 cylinder sounds great when pushed. The performance is good considering the weight of the car and the size of the motor. It keeps up with the local products pretty well.
Reliable and comfortable, well made and durable.
Would loved to have owned one from new.
Have been grateful to own such a nice, safe and reliable car. Now that I need a larger car, I will be moving to a larger Audi.
I have heard it said that if you can't afford a new Audi, then you can't afford an old one. I have had this car for six years, and it hasn't cost any more to maintain than any of my previous vehicles.
And if you want to do your own oil changes, you'll be happy to find that the oil filter is straight up and down, so it won't spill all over your engine and driveway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
