Audi Turbo Reliability?

Hello all,

My father is contemplating the purchase of an S6 wagon.  Having survived
180,000 miles in an 1982 5000 (the car was driven hard and put away wet), he
was wondering what sort of reliability to expect from the Audi turbo engines.  

The drivetrain on our previous Audi held up rather well -- it was the
hundreds of other niggling problems that turned us off.  My dad hopes to
have equal luck with this new Audi, but the mere mention of the word "turbo"
sends shivers up his normally-aspirated spine.

What should we expect?

Thanks in advance,

Phil Darringer
