Are Audi’s expensive to fix?
Audis are both a gorgeous and high-end luxury vehicle to own. When deciding whether to purchase an Audi, it is important to consider the costs of maintaining and repairing the vehicle, though the cost of maintaining an Audi or any high-performance automobile varies dramatically based on the condition, age and specific vehicle model. No two vehicles are alike, but Audis do not cost more than other comparable luxury vehicles to maintain such as BMW or Mercedes. Subarus are known for being reliable, but here’s an interesting statistic: The Subaru Forester costs about $12,200 to maintain over 10 years, while an Audi A4 Quattro costs $12,800 over 10 years to maintain. So, the Audi is very similar to your average vehicle maintenance. When considering repair costs, you have a few options. All repairs are differently priced, and everyone’s definition of expensive is different. It is tough to say whether it will be expensive to you. What does apply to every car owner is instructions on keeping your Audi repair cost as low as possible. Follow the recommended maintenance schedule!
Audi has specific maintenance requirements which you can learn about by reading your owner’s manual or visiting audiusa.com. The good news is, EuroCar is certified to repair all Audis and we use the same tools and genuine Audi parts as the dealership. Choosing our shop over the dealer will also save you on average 20% and we have an amazing warranty on all our parts and labor of 2 years/24,000 miles. If you want to avoid expensive genuine Audi parts, we offer our customers another option. We can often install parts that are not made by Audi but still work the same way and come with the same warranty.
Pre-purchase Buyers Inspection
A very important measure to take before purchasing an Audi is a pre-purchase buyers inspection. Why is this necessary? If purchasing a used Audi, there can be hidden problems that the seller or dealer has not told you about. We see so many customers that have just purchased a vehicle, only to be broken down on the side of the highway the next week or a few days later. As I am writing this, there is a customer at the front desk who just decided to not purchase a vehicle due to excessive rust that was hidden. A pre-purchase buyers inspection will cost you around $100 plus tax. This is way better than buying a $5,000 vehicle with $4,000 in hidden problems.
