Audi Cabriolet (92-00)

Value

4 out of 5

Remaining very pricey; there are more affordable convertibles, but few of this quality.

Costs

3 out of 5

Avoid a main dealer; a reputable specialist is sufficient; the parts are simple (from the 80 range) and should be inexpensive.

Driving

4 out of 5

Excellent feel, but very noticeable scuttle shake.

Performance

3 out of 5

The 1.8, even with 20-valves, is underpowered; with most power peaking at the bottom end of performance.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Excellent, German quality engineering.
