I am considering buying the car above, '89 200 Quattro Turbo with the cold
weather package. While doing some research on this model, I thankfully found
this newsgroup. I hope someone is willing to share some insight, either here
or via e-mail.
The car is in very good condition it seems. It's got 145k miles on it, and
has had the following work done in the past few years:
Timing belt, water pump, steering rack, new tires, master brake cylinder,
slave cylinder, fuel line hoses.
That I can see right now, the front passenger side window doesn't like to go
up all the way, and the odometer is stopped working at 144828 miles. Parts
don't seem that expensive and there's a lot of them on eBay from various
shops around the country.
I like working on cars, and have worked on a Saab 99 and older Volvo's in
the past. However, I actually need this car to be a reliable one, and to
replace a Ford with numerous electrical and transmission problems. What am I
getting myself into buying the Audi. Asking price is $1500.00. Never
wrecked, no rust, and the paint and interior are in pretty good shape. A lot
of the small things could be easily fixed up.
Thank you for your time and help.
