Solid, safe, reliable, boring
Key operated central locking system fails intermittently on drivers door. This is caused by a leak in the vacuum pump (central locking is vacuum operated) and is costly to repair.
No other problems to report.
I wanted an Audi because of their reputation for quality and reliability, and the 80 does not disappoint.
The early nineties styling still looks great, but the interior is looking dated and the equipment levels are poor for it's class.
I found mine to be a huge bore to drive. The power steering is essential as the car is so heavy, and the 2 litre 8 valve engine just isn't up to the job. The 16 valve version has an extra 40 horsepower.
Not a drivers car, but if you want a safe family car for a couple of grand - here it is.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
