I'd say the b5 s4 is the only car on earth which is less reliable than the TT and b6 shitboxes. Those cars are ******* pathetic.
RX7 had a great motor. It had overengineered turbo system. And a rats nest. Otherwise it will go down as one of the greatest sports cars of all time. It was a hot blonde, who required a certain amount of attention. Great **** though.
Obviously you have had a bad experience with Audis + VWs.
My grandfather had a rabbit diesel truck which NEVER left him stranded, got 55mpg and never died until the day he sold it with 350,000 miles.
My uncle has worked with champion audi and their Audi S4. He is currently working on a daily driven 500whp low 11 second street car for a friend of his. It effectively is the most comfortable, reliable, fastest car you can have for under 30k in the bucket. He drives it everday fyi.
My mother puts approx 50k miles a year on her MK5 GTi which to this day, despite some dumb cosmetic stuff, has yet to break down after almost 3 years.
My father drove a B6 A4 3.0 business car. After 60k miles no problems.
I grew up in a Audi/VW family and so far I've heard no complaints. They just love the cars.
I grew up to love Mazda, and its mostly for weight and cost related reasons.
