"My '93 Audi CS 100 Quattro drives like a dream; smooth, quiet, and effortless. All road conditions...wet, snow, gravel...doesn't matter - it's a hummer of a car. Mechanical issues do arise...at 125,000 - replace your fuel pump, alternator, and kiss your hydraulic trunk lifters goodbye. Radio died...not sure why - someone rear ended me and "totalled" it before I could figure it out. Not many out there and so 'replacement value' after an accident is nowhere near it's real value. In the end - great car, sad to see it go to the great wrecking yard in the sky. I'd buy another in a heartbeat if I had the bucks to keep up with the maintenance it deserves."
"Does she love it or hate it ?
drives like a dream . handles even better corners unbalevable. interior is sweet although the leather is worn.
comfortable. tons of complements on the car.
very sporty. drives like a millon bucks .
becouse thats what the cost to maintain:)
something is alway going wrong with it lots of machanical problems (major ones) and very few who know how to fix them well. almost 200.000 miles on it BUT it cost to get it that far . would i buy another ? sad to say yes . but i would never sell one to a freind . a gluton for punishment i guess. so in the end love wins out :)"
"The only reason that I wouldn't recommend it to a friend is that I want this car all to myself. Audi V8 Quattros are definitely labors of love. Mine has 205K on the ticker, and I plan on keeping this car forever. Not easy to find parts for, but if you're willing to do the research, then it's completely worth it. This is my fourth Audi, and I have a true love for this vehicle. I purchased it in Rhode Island for 500 and I drove it back to California with no mechanical problems to speak of. It does share the same Audisms that all Audis have, Axles, tie rod ends, bottom end oil leaks, but these niggles are nothing to what it gives back. Insanely stable in ALL road conditions, dry, it's smooth and the power delivery is very linear, in the snow, you can plow through a foot of standing snow and not need to use chains. I also have a 2008 Cadillac CTS, and theres not a single feature that my Caddy has that my Audi doesn't. This car has 4 seat heaters STANDARD and phone STANDARD. This car was sold 18 years ago. Thats astounding.
The can have my keys when they pry them from my cold, dead hands. Not anytime sooner."
