Great Car, Worth Everything That Gets Put Into It. — Absolutely the most fun car to drive, but, like every car, it has its quirks, but those are easily dealt with. Acceleration is amazing with the 5 speed and turbo. The handling is great and it has a really tight suspension, and the 4 wheel disk brakes and selectable ABS make braking a breeze. The pearl white paint is amazing. It gets great gas mileage, even though it has a ton of power. So much fun to drive, especially on winding roads.

Pros

turbo, quattro, ski boot, roomy, decent gas mileage

Cons

electronics were annoying, a/c went out

Turbo/quattro Fast, Snow Worthy, Decent Gas Mileage — it is a turbo quattro, so it gets up and goes, while giving you the ability to take it skiing, even has ski boot thing so you can put skiis inside w/ out getting the car wet. On th eelectronics end it wasn't so good, you couldn't do anything manually, and the engine compartment is packed almost to the point of despair, and the a/c crapped out but other than that an eccelent car

86 5000 Wagon/89 Sedan By bobby49wsn

89 had defroster problems. The 89 sedan wasn't as fast as the 86 wagon. I wish I had never sold it. Both were road worthy. 25 gallon in a tank at 23 mpg took me to NC, fill up, and back, when gas was ... Read More
