    Just wondering what mileage can I expect to get from a 2.8 quattro avant?

    Is the quattro system likely to need expensive maintainance at mileages in excess of 120,000 miles?

    Can I expect to get 150,000 - 200,000 miles if it's serviced regularly and looked after?

    cheers

    Should last ages. My '96 A4 quattro V6 is on 207,000 miles, and still drives fine. I've got a client that runs a '93 Audi 80 quattro 2.8 V6. It's on 422,000 miles, and still going strong.

    Thanks for posting so quickly - glad to hear I've plenty miles left to go.

    422,000 - that's good value from a car

    My 99 A4 V6 quattro has only done 60k so should have years of use left! Unfortunately at 24mpg they may still be expensive years ...
