1984 Audi 80 B2 GLD 1.6 non-turbo diesel from Turkey
A good, cheap road companion
I had to change the front left wheel bearing after I bought the car. I have changed the alternator and water pump as well, because of a little squeak, and have changed the oil every 10.000km. No other problems whatsoever.
A very solid car, the engine is a bit noisy, but who cares. 4-5 litres per km consumption (diesel); the engine might not have too much power, but always starts no matter how cold the weather is and gets you where you wanna go, no matter how bad the weather (rain, snow, whatever). A quiet stable car on the road. The car can drive at 120-140km per hour all day long on the autobahn. Superb heater, and gets hot in 2-3 minutes, even in very cold weather.
It's a good friend waiting outside for you to start the engine, and get you to wherever you wanna go, whenever you wanna go.
My previous car was a Mercedes 190D; this is not as quiet and comfortable as a Merc, but it's an excellent, cheaper to buy, and cheaper to run alternative.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
