I currently own, as a private car, an Audi A3 2.0 TDI S-tronic. I bought it 4.5 years ago (new), and it has around 40,000 miles.
The car is in perfect condition, and had all services done by Audi.
However, I am wondering if there are some risks in keeping that car longer, given the turbo and the S-tronic gearbox, as opposed to getting a new car (I am not particularly keen on the new A3).
My understanding is that a failure of the turbo or the gearbox/mechatronic unit would be expensive, seem to be quite frequent on older Audi cars.
I am wondering if Audi UK would pay for some of the repair if the car had a fairly low mileage and full Audi service, as those parts would be expected to last a long time.
I like my current car, but I am wondering if keeping the car could become very expensive.
