184 Boat, I Mean Audi — This car broke everything, everywhere! I had to pull a Dukes of Hazard to even get in the car because the door handles broke. The heater came on when it wanted, same with the A/C. THe Tranny wouldn't shift unless I warmed the car up for 15 minutes. And 100hp and 120 ft/lbs of torque is NOT ENOUGH for a 4000 pound car!

Pros: not much, it had leather!

Cons: Expensive to fix, everything broke, it was a FIVE cylinder!

Audi Turbo — While This was a comfortable car, it was EXPENSIVE to keep on the road. All sorts of little things went wrong - mostly electrical - but finally the exhaust manifold cracked and that was bad. Also, it had all sorts of hydraulic fluid leaks. Still, on the road it was suitable for long drives

Pros: nice looking

Cons: break down prone

1984 Audi 5000 S Sedan FWD Review
Brandon02 says:
Bought the 5000 new in 1984. The body style was extremely good looking back in 84 and looked futuristic at the time. Ordered it with automatic, leather power seats and seat heaters. Had the sunroof and the trip computer too. I think the price was around $18,000 at the time. Overall it was a nice car for the five years I kept it. It did have some reliability issues that were fixed under warranty. No, my 5000 never drove by itself but the 60 minutes scandal did hurt the resale value when I traded it for a BMW 5-Series.

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
