Summary:

Excellent value for money

Faults:

Cracked rear nearside rear lens

Fuse blew for instrument panel.

General Comments:

This car probably drives like it did when it first came off the production line, it's smooth and quiet.

This car still has that luxurious feel, the interior is clean and tidy, the seats are comfortable.

On the motorway it's quieter than cruising around town, which is very surprising.

Best £200 car that money can buy.

Summary:

Much better than a BMW or Merc

Faults:

Failed to start one day, still unable to sort.

Handle broke off glove box.

Damp in front foot-wells.

General Comments:

Effortless drive, not fast, but happy at 1000 revs in 5th gear.

Nice feel to the steering, if a bit light.

Generally very impressed except that last week it refused to start, I'm getting no sparks so I replaced the ignition module and distributor cap, but still nothing. ECU recording no faults. Dealer costs very expensive.

Very solid feel and still feels solid once you've pulled the trim out and put it back together, not something I could say about my Honda, for example.

Poor reliability? BMW, Mercedes, and very close in reliability nowadays, which isn't to say "awesome," but that is the price that you pay when you buy a German car. Consumer Reports doesn't lie... in initial quality, Audi is in fact quite a bit above the industry average.

Audi is usually one of the top in JD Power ratings, and always has a Consumer Reports pick.

Mercedes, on the other hand, is usually one of the makes in last.

I'd much rather drive an Audi than a Merc or a BMW.

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.

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.
