Considering a pre-owned car? Audi and VW cars are known for retaining their value. The Audi A7, for example, came in 2nd place for Kelley Blue Book’s 2017 Best Resale Value Awards under the luxury car segment. We’ll look at the pre-owned Audi A series and examine the pros and cons of this model.
The A6 has the highest demand and also retains the highest value, according to What Car Magazine. The A6 has a sporty feel and is very stylish. It has also been praised for its easy handling, making it ideal for inner city commuting. This is a huge plus considering that Kirkland traffic can be quite hectic more often than we like.
The Audi A3 holds up well in tests and is very reliable, provided that the previous owner serviced the vehicle at the specified intervals. The semi-automatic variant does come with a DSG (dual clutch) transmission, which may not be to everyone’s liking. This is a point to keep in mind during the test drive. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the wiper mechanism, which has been known to fail prematurely.
With the Audi A8, both the suspension and gearbox have been known to prematurely wear out. Have a VW and Audi technician take a look at these components if buying from a private seller. The engine, though, is among the best and is known to hold up for years.
All three models are high-quality automobiles. However, as with any used model, you need to do your homework. Bring the car to Buttera Motors for a pre/post-vehicle purchase inspection. Our extensive story outlines why we are qualified for inspecting all pre-owned Audi A series models and other German-made cars.
