1) Thinking of purchasing a Quattro and people tell me the 5000 is much
more expensive to maintain than the 4000. Is this true? Is the
5000's refinement worth the extra trouble/cash?
2) Also, are turbos any problem in cold weather? I live in VT. Should
a block heater be installed? Should I just get a non-turbo?
3) I live on 7 miles of dirt road which can become quite washboarded.
A friend sold his Quattro because he didn't want to beat it to death
on dirt roads. Anyone have experience like this?
4) At the risk of being flamed, are there any other 4wd sedan
alternatives that are reasonably priced (no Subarus!)? I am looking
in the $3,500 - $5,000 range.
