These cars do not suffer from the maladies which affect ealier
Audis, such as leaky racks, hydraulic pumps, bombs, etc. They have
"conventional" vacuum assisted brakes and power steering systems.
Aside from the leaky hose (which I think was really pre-1994 cars)
it shouldn't be any worse than any other car.

My own experience has been similar. Many little problems in the
first 25k miles or so. But since then, aside from normal wear items,
the car has been very good.

Some of the scarier problems affected only pre-1994 cars: bad oil
pumps, blown catalytic convertors, oil leaks. I really haven't
heard of anyone with a 1994-on car with more than minor niggles.
