What could be the lifespan i can expect out of this car?

Asked by Jan 04, 2016 at 02:58 PM about the 2006 Audi A3 2.0T Wagon

Question type: General

i have an Audi A3 2006 which has done about 100K. I'm thinking of selling it.
How much do you think it would last? It's been well taken care of and no
issues so far. Would it last till 200K?

if you take/took care of it it will take care of you..

200k is not at all out of range if it has been cared for as you stated. These days, 100K is expected; 200K is reality; and 300K is highly possible. Couldn't say that about cars built in the past.

While cars today are designed to get further down the road the questions you must ask are, Was the car maintained properly,Was it driven hard. Even things like where the car was kept can mitigate how long it will last.If it was maintained properly and driven with care you can expect to reach 200k and beyond. At some point however you will have to ask yourself are the repairs worth it? There will always be repairs on older vehicles nothing drives forever... Hope this helps
