I bought this used with 2500 miles 6 years ago. from the first week it's been nothing but a heartbreaker. 1, heater fan $300. 2 Air suspension $1200 just for the front. 3 engine light always on for some reason $??? many trips to reset and fix crap. 4 Xenon headlights are tied to the suspension by computer so when one is messed up the other is $400. 5 torque converter $800. 6 brakes: you must replace the discs when doing Audi brakes!!! $800 brake job. I could go on all day, so far this POS has cost me $8000 in repairs but it's the unreliability that reall kills me. I thought they made good cars. I could have bought a Chevy and never had any of these problems. Had an A4 and a Passat, engine lights and other annoyances. Never again will I buy any German car!
you think you have problems?
you must come see the disgusting service from Audi dealers in Cape Town South Africa !!!
if you want my sad story, please ask and i will provide entertaining reading!

I can't put into words my complete dissapointment with this car. I bought it used with only 20k miles and the problems started within two weeks.
I have never seen such an enless money-pit of a car in my life (56).
The best thing I've done to it is to replace the worthless air ride with real shocks and disable the entire air ride system.
The rest of the list of expensive things I've had to do to it would take me hours to write about, and life's too short for that. The real kicker for me is that I actually love this car but it's been such a bitter dissapointment and I think my check engine light has been off maybe a total of 1 month in the 8 years I've owned it. so sad.
