    Audi is always bad.

    And everything tends to go at once with them too. I have a number of friends who were driving down the freeway (or anywhere) and bam, out of nowhere like 4 things failed at the exact same time.

    I'm friends with a fair number of technicians on them...they consider working on Audi's as job security.

    sorry man, should've done some research before you plunged into buying a german car. Lesson learned, sell that thing before it reaches ~60k

    my roommate purchased an 04 A4 brand new and returned the thing under the lemon law. sure it was nice as shit, but the problems began the second he drove it off the lot.

    oh maybe

    i still think audi though because with a land rover atleast you have room to work since they're not small cars.

    good job correcting me. On second thought, DON'T DO ANY RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING ANY CAR. EVER.

    You just need to keep up on maintenance. VWAG had a really bad run a few years ago and it really tarnished their reputation.
    Anything before 99 is probably fine although getting high in miles. The latest VWAG products have been pretty good with little more than the teething problems all new product lines have.
