Abstract: We prove almost global well-posedness for quasilinear strongly coupled wave-Klein-Gordon systems with small and localized data in two space dimensions. We assume only mild decay on the data at infinity as well as minimal regularity. We systematically investigate all the possible quadratic null form type quasilinear strong coupling nonlinearities, and provide a new, robust approach for the proof. In a second paper we will complete the present results to full global well-posedness.
