    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.

    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 ...
