1994 Audi 80 2.6E V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Amazing car if you look after it well
It needed CV joints when I bought it.
The coolant tank had cracks in it and needed replacing.
Didn't come with working heaters; the person I bought it off lied to me about that...
Has a check engine light that comes on when cold; nobody can tell me what it is exactly, but it's either the temp or oxygen sensors.
Temperature sensor is being replaced soon.
Oxygen sensors are being replaced soon (P.S look up Bosch P/N 13913. It will fit if you cut the old plugs off the Audi sensor and swap it over).
Thermostat played up a bit and left the fans running when I first got it, but it fixed itself once I charged the car up again.
Sump plug is leaking oil, have to order a new one.
Coolant leak in one of the pipes, going to fix soon.
If you need anymore help with the car, have a look at 12v.org. Lots of info there.
My parents had a 4 cylinder 80 (a B3) and I had that for a while, but ran into expensive problems, so I ended up getting rid of that and getting this.
I fell in love with the upgraded handling and newer features like ABS and cruise control, along with the upgraded interior from the older 1992 model.
I know it has its problems, but I'm getting on top of them one by one, and it's just like an ongoing project for me. I got the car really cheap and I knew of some of the faults. I love the styling of it and the responsiveness of the steering too. It could be more powerful however.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
