I hear mixed reviews...really think about buying the Q5. I hear they are a bitch to get repaired. Thoughts?

A good friend of mine has has Audi's for forever and he loves them. I don't think that they are any more difficult to get repaired then any foreign car. I personally have always had BMWs and Mercedes and can tell you that once they are out of warranty they cost a fortune to maintain.
Love German cars. Used to drive a 2001 A6, was great. Now driving a Volkswagen and LOVE it. Once I get older and have some decent money (hopefully) I'll drive an Audi. I'm not personally a fan of the SUVs though, at least cosmetically.
I've heard they have electrical problems. German cars are going to get you coming or going. I own a 5 series and it has leaking problems. :=) Get a warranty if you don't do maint. yourself.
Personally I'd lean towards the Japanese luxury lines over the Audi.
I've got an Acura TL and I love it, Parts aren't hard to come by and you got the reliability that is Honda with you. Been an excellent car for me. Fun to drive and all the bells and whistles.
Signature goes here
Audi is a badass car. Mechanics hate them. I also lean towards Japan sport lux cars. I have the Infinit G35 and love it with min problems after 150k miles. Handles almost as good as BMW but w/o the hassles. All my friends with German cars love em until about the 50k mile range when stupid shit breaks. Audi is in that category.
I'd get the Audi a6 on 3 year lease.
Thanks for the advice guys, I'll let you know what I decide!
I've had my 2002 A4 for 8+ yrs, about 65k miles on it. Haven't had any problems, love it, will likely get another Audi when I decide to replace it. Thinking about looking at A3s for my fiancée to replace her Accord.

My little bro has a G35 coupe with the 6 speed. Bad-ass car.
Audis are awesome but as they are all sport tuned they will have expensive parts. Tires alone are wide and much more expensive. A4 is probably one my favorite cars to drive with traditional german sport handling it urges you to take control. I've only driven the audi suvs once or twice, but you get the feeling they took time to replicate the same experience.
If I had to make a top 2 cars list it would be the s4 followed by the acura tl-sh awd
Friend of mine had an RS4, man that was a badass car.
Good cars! had two in the family, one was great other had some problems. I would buy from them again though for sure. S5 or R8
Would love an R8, but sadly out if my price range at the present time. S5 would be very nice too.
this thread points out mixed reviews. I know someone that has an Audi and she hates it. Always in the shop. If you go German then do BMW or MB. A few years ago I would not have bought a MB, but I bought one and really like it.
Wait, is this a "any 2 cars ever" list?
I've had two Bmw's, both new and ordered from the dealer. The 4 door 325 never had any issues at all. The 2007 335 coupe spent most of its time in the shop. BMW always supplied a loaner, but after a couple trips to the dealer, where the car sat for 2 weeks at a time waiting for parts, we decided to get another 335. BMW rolled us into the next one at no cost and it has never been in to the shop for anything other than standard maintance. I now have a MB ML350 and a c300. Neither car has had any issues at all. My first luxury car was an Acura Vigor, biggest POS I ever owned, never tried another Acura. My wife leased a G35 and it was nice, but it didn't hold a candle to the 335. After a couple years, you will notice the difference in fit and finish between the Infiniti line and Mercedes/BMW. The German cars stay put together better, the windows seal better, the doors still "thunk" shut, and the knobs don't fall off or chip paint.
Lots of mixed reviews here haha. Guess I'll just go with what I like best from a looks perspective. Definitely going German though.
