My new-to-me '94 100S Avant (FWD auto) is not without
its problems.

- The car hesitates on acceleration. Sometimes it's just a
   subtle stutter. Other times a full fledged "I don't want
   to go".  I need to pull the codes, if it's possible like
   it is on the Type 44 200.

- There's a slight shimmy from the steering. I presume out
   of balance or out of round wheels and tires. The wheels
   look like they've hit a few curbs (kerbs).

- When I first shut the car off, I couldn't get the key
   out of the ignition. The owner's manual provided a clue.
   The car has to be in Park to remove the key. On my car,
   it seems the parking interlock is a bit out of adjustment.
   Fiddling with the shift lever trips some switch so I can
   remove the key. Is there and adjustment to be made? Or a
   switch to be replaced?

I'll have more questions as I put on the miles.
