I think that you will find, reading the posts in this list, that many
Audi enthusiasts regularly fix and upgrade their cars. Does this mean
that Audis are unreliable? I think not.

I have driven 203k(4kq)+165k(4kq)+68k(20VCq)+52k(20VCq)+6k(urq)=494kmi!!
and I have never taken the head off of any of my Audis. (knock wood)

Do the door handles need replacement? yes.
Do you need a new clutch at 195k? yes.
Sometimes do the switches and window lifts fail? yes.

Are these serious? no.
Do these equal unreliability? no.
