1988 Audi 80 TD 1.6 TD
A comfortable, low - cost limousine
The water pump blew. It cost 100 euro to fix. (and 2 hours of my own work)
The ABS light comes on at 125 km/h (75 mph). Probably a relay error.
Driver seat broke. I Had to weld.
Clutch totally broke down. It cost 150 euro and 8 hours of my own work to fix.
Interior heat radiator blew, water spilled into cabin. Took 80 euro and 10 hours of my own work to fix. I had to take the whole dashboard apart.
I really love this car. It is very solid, it still looks modern and is very comfortable.
The handling costs are at minimum. It has an average consumption of 5.5 liter/100 km.
It is a turbo diesel, has only 82 HP, but goes quite well. On flats it can reach up to 190 km/h.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My brother had the same problem with heater radiator in dashboard. Engine almost had no water in it and there was about 5 liters of water in cabin.
Very, very painful job to do. We needed six hours to fix the problem.
This is third one replaced for last two years!!!I think it`s because of poor quality parts he was buying.
