Ohh I don't know. My '98 has, overall, been very reliable. Personally I
prefer to have no car payment (lease or loan) and just expect to pay for a
few repairs. I don't know what A4's lease for these days but even at
$3000/yr in repairs (pretty high estimate IMO - I bet $1500/yr is more
realistic over time) that's only $250/mo....won't get you much of a new car
