I bought my A4 at 3 years old, and have run it up to 116,000 miles. It has been incredibly dependable; but repairs aren't cheap. The car always gives me plenty of (usually audible) signs that something needs attention. I have had to replace the CD player and all the ball joints...other than that, it has been great.
Quattro, Heated Seats, Sassy styling, dependability, relatively small exterior size, well-balanced suspention, comfortable for long trips, did I mention the heated seats?
