Auto transmissions

  I was hoping someone could tell me why Audi autoboxes are so 
unreliable. I'm planning a move to a major metropolitan area this summer, 
and would really like to have a quattro, and a car with auto trans. Why 
can't audi make a good car with both of these options that won't leave me 
in fear of having to spend $5k on the fu*k%@g gearbox? Maybe they can, 
are the new ones (tiptronics) built any better? I sure hope so, or else, 
well, I'll hold off on that statement for now.
