Re: "Audi Assurance"

I was just at the Auto Show in Providence, RI drooling over the A4 
1.8T they had there.  I asked about the used car warranty and was 
told that the 5 year/75000 mile warranty was from the ORIGINAL 
date of purchase.  It does not cover the same things as the initial 
new car warranty which is for three years.  There is a $50 
deductible on repairs done at the dealership.
