Summary:

A great luxury car, an Audi will never let you down

Faults:

Starter broke at 160 000 KM.

Rear left window will not work.

Some switches no longer light up, but still work.

Speedometer stopped.

Air conditioner stopped.

General Comments:

Bought this merlin colored Audi, after my 1989 pearl white Audi 100 was stolen.

The seats are still rich and soft in its original velour fabric.

Bose 6 speaker factory radio is great quality, although cassette playback quality is just starting to fade.

Power everything makes it difficult to settle for anything non-electronic.

Acceleration is not great, but picks up speed extremely well once it is taken off.

So many features even newer cars do not offer.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The speedometer on my 1990 Audi 100 has stopped working as well -- did you do anything to fix that? If so, could you help me out? Thanks in advance.

I'm thinking of purchasing an Audi 100, and thought I would check to see what people who own the car thought of it first. I was the comment about the speedometer - this seems to be common with both Audi's and Mercedes. I recently found a website that claims to repair these speedometer/odometer problems, which might be helpful. I haven't tried it myself. Check it out at www.speedometer.com.
