Q: Honestly is the upkeep on an Audi very pricey??

asked by on August 07, 2017

Looking to buy 1 just want to know if it's worth it and the maintenance and upkeep??

You did not specify the year, make and model of Audi you want to purchase. I can say a few things about the repairs. First there are very few dealers and shops that can work on any problems or maintenance you may need. This can make it harder and more expensive to get work done. The cars are very stylish and dependable as any other brand out there.
