Advantages: Comfort, drive quality, that special feeling it gives you
Disadvantages: Fuel economy, electrical issues
The Audi 100 is a spacious and luxurious piece of automotive excellence, and when you include the automatic transmission instead of the manual one, its as though you are driving in a big cloud of candy floss but not as sticky!
I bought this after a disastrous affair with a VW golf and just wanted a car that could get me from A to B and not need me to try and coax it in to existence with promises of new foot well mats or a new exhaust! From the day I bought the Audi I loved it, its sleek exterior and extremely comfortable interior make make you feel like you are driving a far more expensive car than you are.
The Audi is very quick off the mark and if you are not give it your full attention it can easily slip over the speed limit, the Audi is also not brilliant when it come to it cars fuel economy. I found that it does between 15-20 mpg in city driving and around 25-28 mpg on fast road driving. They do tend to suffer from electrical problems and mine was no exception, the alarm system would go off at random intervals and the cars lights would work only if you gave the cables a little wiggle before you started your journey.
But despite these problems and the fact that if you have a pet that goes with you then they are either in the boot or the roam free in the back seat, I loved this car. It is a luxury sedan without the extortionist price tag and when you include ABS, airbags (driver side only) and power steering as standard plus the feeling of superiority you get a lot of car for the age of the vehicle.
I drove this car in torrential rain, freezing welsh winter and in the scorching 2 weeks of summer and found it to have superb handling and never once did I did i feel like i was not in complete control of the car.
In the end the Audi's electrical issue just got to be to much and we decide that it was time for an upgrade and my love affair came to an abrupt end with the Audi just not willing to even start one day in summer. I will always cherish those moments that we shared on the A55 or going to Manchester to visit family, but life goes on and unfortunately my Audi did not!
Summary: A lot of Luxury for a low Price
