Are Audi cars reliable? Get all your FAQs about Audis, answered

Thinking about buying an Audi, but don’t know enough yet about these cars or the cost of Audi servicing in Perth to make a decision?

Known for their quality design and high-performance engines, it’s no surprise that Audi cars are among some of the best-selling luxury vehicles worldwide.

Of course, there are much more practical considerations you’ll need to think through before purchasing an Audi, such as the cost of maintenance, how easy it is to source replacement parts, and which model is best suited to your needs.

In this article, we’ve summed up some of the most frequently asked questions about Audis and things you should know about running European cars.

Where are Audis made?

Originally developed in Germany with a history that stretches back to 1885, Audis are now manufactured all over the world, from Europe to South America. The car brand really began to make a name for itself with the launch of the Audi quattro range – these vehicles were the world’s first to include all-wheel drive technology, and therefore the most powerful cars yet.

Since then, Audi has continued to build on their brand of innovative, sporty cars that exude power and prestige. Today, Audi vehicles remain ahead of the curve with their autonomous driving and advanced safety features that are integrated with their latest models.

Are Audi cars reliable?

Audis cost a pretty penny, and for good reason: Each of their parts have been designed and built with incredible precision and high-quality materials. Of course, it would be dishonest to say that Audi cars don’t have their fair share of mechanical issues.

While choosing to buy the Audi brand will set you back far more than another vehicle that lasts longer in more rugged conditions, your Audi will still work just as well if it is maintained according to manufacturer recommendations – which leads us to our next question…

Are Audis expensive to maintain?

When it comes to paying for Audi repairs or finding quality European car parts, you may have balked at what you’ve been told from other car owners. 

But just like any other car you own, your Audi maintenance cost can be kept down simply by following a strict servicing schedule and paying attention to any signs of wear and tear. By spending just a few hundred dollars or less on Audi servicing from our factory trained technicians every 10,000 miles, you could save thousands of dollars in annual repair costs.

Which Audi is the best?

This all depends on you! If you’re chasing a car with speed above all else, you’ll want to test drive the Audi R8 Coupe V10 Performance Quattro. For drivers who want extra room and fancy features to increase passenger comfort and safety, the award-winning Audi RS Q8 SUV may be more your style.

To sum up, choosing whether or not to buy any luxury car is a matter of how much time, energy, and money you’re willing to invest in it. If you’re a European car enthusiast who cares about the unmatched style, performance, and heritage that these cars offer, then an Audi could still be a worthy choice for you (and a source of pride for any owner!)
