Audi ownership was very similar. Parts may last twice as long as a Ford or a Vauxhall, but cost at least three times as much to replace.

Yep thats a defo Horatio, But they say you wont need so many

Jeez go into an Audi garage for repairs/servicing prices, saying that any VAG main dealer.

Worst I ever owned was a 1.3 Vauxhall Shove it ( Chevette) Absolute pile of crap. You could stand and watch it rusting to death It had more holes in it than our kitchen seive. Very cheap to repair but crap none the less. I managed to finally kill it performing a burnout on some gravel ..... blew the diff clean out the back of the casing ...... GREAT
I still hate Vauxhalls


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER

I had an early astra. I used to take a pint of oil every 500 miles and it was only 18 months old The dealer assured me that it was all within usual tolerances. I didn't keep it long enough to find out what would happen

car , owned , worst
