RE:Get a 4000?
My 1984 4000S (non-quattro alas) has 460,000 miles on it; 220,000 on this
latest engine. I've owned it since new. Some subsystems are original;
A/C, fuel injection, power steering. I just replaced the original fuel pump.
My first exhaust system (at 160,000 miles) was from Midas, and I haven't
paid for a muffler since then (hee hee). There is no body rust, except
for the tiny bit on the fender repaired 10 years ago where I hit a deer.
Things that don't last long: electric mirrors, power antenna, power trunk
lock (the power door locks are original), door handles, electric radiator fan.
On the whole, the reason I still have this car is because it is so freakin'
reliable! It's fun to drive, too, even though it's underpowered.
