2009 Audi A4 Premium Quattro 2.0 turbo from North America
A great car when it's working. The worst car for maintenance costs
Was good for a few times, but the sum of all the little things is not cheap.
Rear spring, rear bearing 500$, something in the hood relative to a vacuum diaphragm cost around 2000$ because they had to change the seal between the motor and transmission.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You said it all. Had several german cars. When they are running right, they are excellent cars, but when they break down, they can be a nightmare. Here in southern California, used german cars go for peanuts. Some people can't give them away. German cars that once cost $100,000 are going for $3000.00 to $10,000. And some sit in the ad column for a long time before they sell.

Audi A4 is a great car no doubt, but as you mentioned maintenance at higher mileage is insanely costly. German parts have always been expensive, but thousands of dollars for some repairs I think is unjustifiable on an older car.
