1991 Audi 80 Quattro 5 cylinder from North America
Can't wipe the smile off my face
Nothing so far. Has been rock solid!
Dream machine. I have always had a thing for Audi's. "The old type" and always Quattro's. They are some of the highest quality cars on the road. I'm shocked they didn't sell all that many over here.
On the outside they tend to blend in with any other car. Way ahead of its time. They hit the show rooms in '87 I think. Still a very nice car to look at.
When you open the door and get in, you get the same feeling as the outside. Very clean looking and modern feeling. Everything feels of high quality. Controls are spot on, with knobs and buttons in reach. My only real gripe is the arm rest. Makes shifting a pain because it's in the way.
Driving one is a joy. This is not a fast car. 130 hp is not going to win you any street race. The joy comes from driving a slow AWD car fast. It could care less what speed you take a corner. I never feel out of control. The brakes work good. The ride is 100% German. Firm without being too rough. Classic German body roll. One of the best all around cars I've owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
