When I bought this car used, it ran perfect and I only ran across 2 problems in the time it was owned.
First there was a problem with the fuel injection. When the engine was hot, it would not restart till it had cooled for a bit. Took it to the shop and it was fixed and never showed up every again.
Also about after a year of owning it, the tranny went out. Took it in had a new one put in.
Other than that, it ran perfect till it was totaled.
Love that car. I had taken it on many trips all over. Drive it to family out east, 1000 mile trips, would drive all day at 75 and it never even twitched. I do not remember the gas mileage, but I do remember it was impressive.
Took my mom to see her sister one day; we took back country roads. She said open it up see what it can do; running 110 on back roads it felt like it was going 60.
I would still have that car if it was not totaled in being hit on the passenger side. The other car was doing 40-45 mph. My mom was driving the car and walked with a headache from hitting her head on the window and just sore from the hit. The other guys car - he went to the hospital in an ambulance with 2 broken legs. The cop said the car saved her.
Since then I have purchased 20 more Audi's of different models and loved all of them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
