Audi 80 - the last Audi to really last.


Suspensions must undergo repairs pretty often (in part because of the road quality).

Air direction switch is getting harder to use, probably needing a cleaning of the mechanism.

General Comments:

The car is very solid and well-built. Even after 15 years it doesn't show important flaws and handles very well.

The Audi 80's design is still attractive and I really like standing and just watching its unique shape.

The thing I admire most is the interior of the car, which is of good quality and still modern design, although its plastic parts are no match for newer materials.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
