I had an 04 Audi A4 3.0L quattro. Badass car minus ALL the problems!! Trans was starting to go out ($2800 to fix) oil changes were expensive...premium gas..GERMAN MADE
I will never make the mistake of buying a used German car again!
GM all the way!
I agree that audi's can be expensive to maintain, especially if you cant do the work your self the stealership will rape you. But if you find a well maintained one with all the records I wouldn't say that buying a used one is a mistake, you just have to be very carefull with your purchase.
