The wagon isn’t dead, it is just taking a nap while dinner is cooking in the kitchen and soon the smoke alarm will blare with an urgency that can ONLY mean the wagon will return to showrooms around the world. Until that happens, if you want your wagon fix, you will need to buy used, like this 1990 Audi 200 Quattro Avant Wagon offered for $2,500 in Seymour, IN via craigslist. Seller submission from GS.
From the seller:
Hello! Up for sale is my 1990 Audi 200 Quattro wagon. Car runs and
drives. It is a 5 speed and has the 2.2 10v turbo engine. I love this
car, but my commute is increasing from 4 miles a day to 50 miles, so I
cant rely on my bicycle as a backup.
Timing belt, pulleys, tensions, cam seal, crank seal, valve cover
gasket, injectors, fuel filter, all coolant hoses(034 silicon), rear
shocks (koni), all rear suspension bushing, radiator, starter, front
control arms, rear calipers, rotors, pads, parking brake cables, rear
wheel bearings and more I am forgetting have all been replaced in the
Body and interior are in good shape overall considering the age and mileage.
Drives nice. Trans shifts good, with no issues. Locking center diff still works!
Hard starting when cold (first start of the day)
Information center in cluster inop, along with the coolant temp gauge most of the time.
Odometer does has not worked since I bought the car. So mileage is unknown (shows like 232K, but obviously more.)
Cluster is causing a parasitic draw so drains the battery after a few days.
Oil leak in the turbo area. Runs down the exhaust manifold and burns
off. No drips but there is smoke from it burning off and will need to be
addressed sooner or later!
One of the silicon radiator hose has a pin hole in it. The hose has sealed it self, but seems to open up from time to time.
Dents, dings, and scratches, usual 27 year old car stuff.
Price is $2500. Let me know If you have any questions!
