Town Car — it was not so bad for driving around town but the older it gets the more noisy it gets this is not a car for long trips unless you find one in pristine order. the fuel injection system is a mess since it works off the air flow box wit ha pressure valve. if this car sits to long the injection system gums up and it stops running right. i spent days playing with the fuel system on mine and it never ran right in the end i woulda needed a brand new fuel injector on it which was costly so it got scraped and i bought a 1998 a4.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a good in town car driving from place to place at a cheap gas price

Cons: the sub frame mounts and tie rod ends make it always a never straight line car. they are always needing replacement tho they are for the most part not expensive parts you are preaty much replacing them every year. and parts are hard to come by these days

Pros: ~Nice body
~Comfortable and roomy

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
