How does the Audi A5 fare for maintenance.

If you are not familiar with the A5, how does Audi compare with other other manufacturers in terms of car reliability?

Reliability is average.

Like BMW, Mitsubishi, VW.



Pretty much all German cars get electrical problems.

The Audi's engines last long, but they usually have electrical problems like power windows getting stuck.



The Audi A5 is new so there are no reliability ratings yet. There won't be for another 2 years because they don't break down when they are new cars.



They are German luxury cars so they are expensive to maintain.

A5 is not for the faint of heart. You cannot make a Toyota salary and expect to live an Audi lifestyle. Only bite off what you can chew. C7S is correct. The mainline A5 is only our this year so far. A reliable track record history is not there yet. Give it a couple and ask around at your local AudiClub to boot.

I own the A4 (not A5), but in general they are very similar in terms of technology and quality.



The quality is OK (not great). There's some complaint with electronics. The car is high maintenance car. Everything is very unique to Audi, making them almost impossible for independent shops working on them.



Also because of the complexity, the labor charges are usually very high. Also the parts are more expensive.



Ex: My timing belt (and water pump) cost $1300. My honda civic's timing belt cost just $350.



Ex2: The cat converter cost $800 (parts only).



I would NOT buy another Audi again.





Good Luck...

I'm not familiar w/the A5 no.

But Audi's are very good cars. very reliable... however, when they do need work (including common keep up ie oil changing, lube and filter etc), it's rather pricey, like lexus and BMW.

I've no idea about it because not familiar with Audi A5; I think you should collect information about this car maintenance form the car showroom.
