Go to Google and do a search of this group for '89-'91 100 and 200 models.
They all share most of the same quirks, but I get tired of rewriting it all.
While there's a lot to say, it doesn't mean we wouldn't recommend the car (I
generally do.) because most of it is petty annoyances that are simple to
fix. You just need to read it.
(Been there; drove that)
I have owned four type 44s (84, 84, 87 and 91). Current car is the '91
100 quattro, 5 speed with 113M miles. I have driven all of them to near
or more than 200M and have experienced no more than normal maintenance
- wiring at driver's door jam and trunk hinge may need to be checked.
- wheel bearings and axles at about 120M
- may want to listen for loud fuel pump but easy to fix
Automatics should have their oil changes because they tend to exchange
fluid between them and the differential. Once done they are good.
- drive lines are solid in quattro and FWD
- Earlier versions had some hydraulic system leaking issues but the '91s
seem so have worked that all out.
- heater blower motor becomes intermittent when brushes are going bad.
Really quite solid and dependable cars. The 100 you are looking at is a
N/A 130 hp so not going to impress anyone at the stop lights but will
give you mid 20 mpg on highway and 20 ish around town.
If you take normal care of it - it will treat you well and look good at
the same time.
'91 100q 5spd
