I dunno, I have limited time for repairing quirks, and I drive around
in a 1980 car! In fact, I share about equal seat time in my 80 4000 as
my 96 A4q, and drive the 5000t very little.
The 4000 series is simpler and less problem-prone than the 5000s.
If you're looking for better reliability, I am not sure you'll gain
anything by going to a 5000 series (we're still talking 80s vintage
here). The 4000s (q included) are damn reliable cars, and have only
a couple of minor things that need looking after.
96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
80 4000 2.0
