Syncro = 4000Q?
Well, I know that this is true to an extent.
I just test drove a 1988 Quantum Syncro Wagon at a local
dealer. Red, 95k miles, new MXV3s, very clean in and out,
one owner car.
- oxs light doesn't come on with ignition - must be bypassed
- clunk when shifting into 4th gear
- clunk when braking hard
- broken into twice (as evidenced by 2 non-VW triangle windows)
Other than this, it's great. The driver's seat shows little wear.
Mechanically, it's definitely an Audi. The car pulls surprisingly
well, and seems to handle OK though I couldn't do any 'typical'
driving of course :). Interior-wise it's all VW, it's like
being in my 86 GLI. The rear seat is surprisingly small for a car
this size, but at least it offers a 2/3 split.
It's also got a roof rack (factory?) with Yakima ski attachments.
They are asking $5495 which I find outrageous for this car.
There is no warranty whatsoever, though they said I could take
it to any mechanic I chose. What do y'all think of the price?
How hard is it to get replacement parts? I imagine rotors, etc
are all VW, but I suspect shocks are hard to find.
Let me know what you think.

P.S. the 90 was advertised in this week's Pennysaver for $7000 OBO.
I know that's a bit high, but we'll see. If anyone is interested in
it, let me know soon.
