I love this car and I hope to always own it and love it


I had to replace the struts and the CV joints and axles.

I had the wheels sandblasted and repainted.

General Comments:

This car turns on a dime.

This car has a beautiful interior and the seats are in mint condition.

This car purrs like a kitten.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I Thought the Audi Fox, was known as Audi 80 in Germany.

You sure don't see many VW Fox's on the road anymore, I've only seen a couple during the past 10 years or so.

I actually have 75 Audi Fox (CIS fuel system, not carburetor). It was my primary car for approximately 23 years!...Though I've had 3 engines in it now. Haven't used it as a primary car for about 3 years now. --Have trouble getting into reverse now (same transmission all these years!). That's not to say no problems though. I've been stranded many times. One time my alternator fell down on the freeway (the bolt sheared off and down it went--enough for me to loose power). Many parts replaced, but then it has been 30 years.

I don't see these in the junk yards either any more. I think I'm the only person that still has one. I can't even believe I found this site...
