Are Audi that good
« on: April 25, 2012, 09:57:16 AM »
So far this year I have seen 3 newish Audis on the back of AA trucks or local firms.  Then last night saw another one.

I follow a 11 reg TT some days and half her LED break lights are off.

Last week I saw one with 1 failed day light running lights.

So have I just seen some unlucky owners or is this common?

My brother in law bought a TT in about 2003, drove it round the corner from the showroom and the engine lunched itself - all new engine required.  Mate of mine had a 51 plate A1 which was starting to have all sorts of electrical problems this year, although to be fair, that was a 10 year old car. 

This link shows the results of the 2011 JD Power survey.  According to this Audi does slightly better than Mazda, but their compact executive cars don't do very well:
