Re: 100 Q Auto Tranny comments.
Thanks for you comments, if I bought this car, and to be honest it's
fairly unlikely at the momment, it would be as a family car for my
The good news is that so far I've received no negative comments on the
reliability of quattro automatics...
One of the things that surprised me when I looked at the car was the
amount of rust on the body surrounding the muffler. There is a thermal
barrier between the muffler and the body but it doesn't cover the
muffler all the way to the back of the car. Consequently there was a
patch of maybe 12"x18" of rust and peeling paint above the mufller.
The rust/peeling paint was starting to spread underneath the thermal
barrier. (Note I should point out I've been spending a lot of time
lately under my '83 ur-q painting etc and getting under another car
for similar work is not high on my list of things I want to do). I was
really surprised by the amount of rust. Is this common to other 100
owners or maybe the car was in an accident?
