Audi reliability

You should look up factual evidence on reliability.  Many on the list own
Audi's from a time period of questionable reliability, and with mileages
that would be beyond consideration for most consumers.  From experience and
product testing, I can also attest to the fact that Japanese vehicles have
good assembly quality, but durability and servicablitiy is not always as
good.  And it does vary considerably by manufacturer.  As far as VW is
concerned, their vehicles are not even close to the build quality or
reliability of Audis.
