Just like all the other high end cars, Audi does cost more to operate and maintain. and are two active Audi sites if you want to see the common problem areas.

Yes. About like Mercedes, in every way imaginable.

German cars in general are more costly to repair compared to Japanese and American cars. Much as I'd love a Porsche, this fact might keep me from ever buying one..Unless I hit the Mega Millions Lottery!!

what's with the fancy buggy? you need to get from here to there. what's the to-do about it all? gotta go over 30mph, bone shattering speeds as an American right!


One word answer,YES,that having been said ,like another high line German car the maintenance is of the utmost importance,sticking to factory schedules and doing what is required ,when it is required,heads off a LOT of issues,what are you looking at?New? Or used?if you are looking at a used Audi ,be certain to take it to a mechanic that specializes in that brand,they will know what to look at and what may be an issue down the road.If you purchase from a dealer used if it is a certified Audi used car there should be no worries the certification process is pretty strict.

yah, those germans are just about as strict as the Japanese are, disassembling EVERYthing as part of the inspection....nutzo....nooneenoonoo- it either works or it doesn't. No amount of inspection will insure safe driving.
