I find it odd that people can give such high recommendations. Remember how much you are paying these cars should last like any other 400,000k’s without any issues even more so due to price point. Yet all fall apart from Audi vw group at the 120,000 k Mark your wallet becomes empty ! Give an update once you hit this many k’s lolololol
Yes experience no euro cars last. Plastic falls apart, outside from our weather, lights get the foggy plastic look. Many many electrical faults. Huge expenses like breaks every 30,000k/ at $1800 just a joke. Japanese / Korean cars all the way !
What is your opinion on Audi A3 sedan 2013.
I mean maintainence cost and all.
They're lovely cars, Audi's are! But I'd be wary of it! There was a recall on this model in 2015 because the fuel pump delivery system was failing. I'm of the mind set that if I spend a decent amount of money on something (like you will on an Audi) you should expect nothing short of exceptional reliability! I'm a quality engineer and I don't trust VW group's approach to managing their suppliers to a point where they can ensure a good product. Anything and everything mechanical/technical will eventually fail but the problems that I encountered with my Audi don't seem to happen as frequently (or in some cases ever) on other manufacturers vehicles. Servicing cost me $680 give or take a bit (labour costs) per service but the amount of new parts and repairs of things that would break or fail meant it was off the road for months at a time and I never had an invoice for less than $3000. I got rid of my Audi a few months ago now but the only way I'd buy an Audi again is brand new (not dealer demonstrator or Audi approved etc) and I'd be looking very seriously at moving it along as it came out of warranty or neared 100K kms... I'm quite critical of German cars after a couple of horrible experiences and I don't want to sound negative but I'll be sticking to a trusty Toyota for while! They're cheaper parts are plentiful and easy to come by and I have the confidence of driving it further without it having a meltdown on the side of the road because the temperature is to hot for it!
