Hey q-listers, help me save my audi faith before I start looking at volvo's!

I have had (2) different 2.8  12v's in my possession over the past year '94 
(150k miles) & '95 (125k miles).  Both of them have shown excessive oil 
consumption, burning it and blowing it out the exhaust.  What's the deal, I take it 
I'm not alone here?  Diagnosis and estimated repair procedure/costs to resolve 

I have owned numerous 4cyl & 5cyl Audi's with high mileage and have always 
thought the engines were bulletproof based on my experiences with these cars.  
Never seen these sort of problems.  I guess I shouldn't have assumed this 
quality would transfer to the V6....  I'm reluctant to buy another one....  Perhaps 
a volvo wagon for the wife instead????
