Summary:

Audi 200 Quattro is a stunning car

Faults:

I have got a problem with ABS. It doesn't work since I got it, and the service is not able to sort it out. They say it is a problem with the brake fluid compresser, but can't specify what causes that problem.

In fact the ABS is working as conventional braking system.

General Comments:

It is a very fine car, but not very many people out there in service garages can deal with that rather old model.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I live in Canada and own a 1987 Audi 5000 Turbo quattro and have never experienced cold start problems even at -30C degrees. The vehicle still amazes me even with 216,000 km on the clock. Other than regular parts replacement, ie.brakes, spark plugs, tires and shocks this is the most dependable automobile I have ever owned (I have owned 36 previous to this- all makes). The quattro is unbelievable in winter snowstorm conditions, even with all season tires! I think of the Audi not as an OLD car but an EXPERIENCED car!!! There is no question as to what my next vehicle will be!!!

The Audi 200 four wheel drive turbo is an amazing car with the four wheel driving working perfectly. It has a small problem with acceleration. Its acceleration is slow, but when it reaches a 100 kph, it blows away everything in its way. It has a problem with its electricity, but everything else works perfectly. It is one of the best sedans ever, with maximum reliability, control and comfort.
