I think that is a pretty gross generalization... I happen to be
quite the perfectionist and I like my Audis to be in as perfect
a condition as possible, and I have been quite successful at this.
While I don't disagree that some Audis have their quirks,
putting Audis in the same boat as the English cars is doing
Audi's reputation a disservice.
