I strongly recommend against purchasing any car made by this manufacturing. The repair list doesn't even include the multiple headlight changes, normal things like brakes, etc. Not just for the ridiculously high number of repairs, and on items that tend to be known problems with these cars, but Audi's attitude regarding standing behind their product. I had to research myself and only happened upon the oil sludge problem and had to "prove" my oil changes before Audi would replace the engine. Not even the dealer/service center volunteered this information, even berating me over it happening, until I faxed them info I found on the internet and my oil change records. Now, with the timing belt issue, a known problem, Audi first told me the service manager with the dealer would decide if it would be covered by Audi, and Audi asked for, you guessed it, all my oil change records, which I produced, showing changes at about every 5000 miles. Now, everyone knows the oil changes have nothing to do with the timing belt, but... Then, after I furnished all of those, and proved I had them, they said, Oh, we want you to pay approx $300 to have the engine pulled apart so we can see what caused the timing belt to break. OK, but the three reasons the dealer gave should all be things that should never have failed at 65,000 miles on an engine, just like the ignition coils I had to replace. And, after asking for specifics on what they had to find to pay for repairs, I have received no reply whatsoever.
