1989 Audi 80 2.0E


Great car and still at it's age it's not out of date


The shock absorber was leaking. This was very costly to replace.

And the watertube did break. Just replaced and now it's working well again.

General Comments:

Very nice and quite a quick car. Drives very well on the high way. I love it.

1989 Audi 80 S 1.8


Despite of the problems I had, I never regret I bought this car!


Temperature sender needed to be replaced.

Torn carburettor gasket.

I think I've had all common problems as for example: worn tappets, worn driver seat and a worn gear lever boot.

Ignition 'switch unit' replaced.

Timing belt tensioner bearing worn down.

Upper cooling hose broke from the radiator pipe.

General Comments:

I still like to believe that this car is more silent than other brands with their last year models.

I like the acceleration and the steadiness in the corners and on the roundabouts.

First had 4 Pirelli tyres now the front wheels have Michelin tyres. This is a big advantage...

I had an 89 80 1.8 s as well, it is a very good car, really a nice bargain.

I had no power steering, no electric windows, but didn't really miss it in this one. It just feels solid.

I was not happy with the cornering, though. But those Pirelli's probably helped a lot to fix most of that. I had two situations in which I had to countersteer alternatively in both directions, really fast, whilst shifting down and pushing the gas pedal to get on track again in the wet after a long turn on the motorway. I had Uniroyal 185's mounted. Luckily everything ended up well.

This Audi is a very nice thing to have.

Electrical problems with the light switch.

General Comments:

When the car is in a good state it's really perfect!

Only trouble is that there is a lot of work to be done before you get the car in a good state.

I'm no mechanic, but with a good manual it's possible to do almost all the repairs by yourself (that's a big plus).

I bought my Audi for 1000 euros and needed for about 1200 euros extra for repairs to get my Audi in a perfect state.
