It's a shame b/c audi's are gorgeous, one the best looking cars out there.

I mean you can always get lucky, and score one that doesn't give you problems but its unlikely. I've known 6 ppl with audis, all of them sold the car w/in a year and bought either sti's, evos, or benz.

My friend had a 2 yr old audi a4, 6 mnths after he bought it, the window wouldn't work...then we're driving IN THE RAIN and the wipers stop working HAHAHAH :LAUGH: german cars are the best (I'm a die hard BMW fan) but they will put your wallet, and patience to the test.
Thats weird that you say that considering AUDI and VW are the EXACT. SAME. COMPANY.
You are aware of this correct? That Audi is simply VW's luxury division, ie. Toyota/Lexus, Honda/Acura, Nissan/Infiniti
And VWs are generally stricken by the same problems as Audis? VWs absolutely suck for maintenance, and many people would rate them much worse than AUDIs, so to everyone considering buying them, keep that in mind

Go to any VW or AUDI dealership and they will tell you the same. Or heck, just check out the second line in Audi's wikipedia entry:

Audi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeah, sorry to embarrass you like that

And snowboardspaz, I take it you are a young guy, so I have a feeling that you wouldn't want, and probably couldn't shell out hundreds and hundreds at a clip to your car just to keep it on the road god forbid you had to. If you get a german car, get it w/ a warranty/maintence plan..the monthly payment will be more but in teh long run you save $$ b/c ur not getting wacked when the car has a mind of its own



Yes you are correct same company however taking a look at V dubs track record vs. Audi's as far as reliabilty the VW is more reliable....


and yes I owned a few BMW's in my time and the last one was funny as hell. Moonroof gets stuck only 3/4's closed.

Me: Moonroof won't close all the way..comp thinks its closed its not.

BMW: no worries that's an easy fix we just have to reset the comp

Me: ok I'll bring it in now.

BMW: Ok, it will take three days

and like someone said earlier thank god for the SICKKKK MAINTENCE plan BMW has b/c it would have cost 750 to reset the comp hahahha!!

IMO Germans make some of the best cars on the road, and I would take a BMW over anything anyday, but for some reason electronically they are shady...

It just is what it is.

Just lol at you.

You say Audi is just VW's high end extension, you are wrong. How long has Audi been around? Please tell me.. then tell me how long Lexus or infiniti has been around?
Yes, VW is the parent company... Audi in turn owns Lambo... Bugatti is also in the mix as well. So is Seat, Skoda... and where is Porsche in all this.

Go into any VW or Audi dealership and they'll say that they are the same? You are killing me... maybe if you went into a VW dealership a salesguy would tell you that they are the same.. but not at an Audi store.

I'm embarrassed for you. Please stop while you are behind, or keep going... this is the internet so it'll be pretty fun to see what you come up with next.
LOL "fact" !!!!!

Regardless of ownership, VW and Audi are NOT the same thing. Car companies barely share tech intra model. The idea is to keep a brand different as a form of diversification. Would you say Saab Is similar in any way to GM? Of course not.

I am an Audi Tech and while they are the same company they are not exactly the same , theres a lot of the same parts/electronics used in both companies but on each of the companies exclusive cars they are different beasts

and VWs and just as unreliable as Audis, just not as expensive to repair
