    That is true of most German cars. I know my 2006 Audi with 131k miles still runs and drives like a new car. However I also have a 1" thick folder of service records from when the PO got it in 2009 with 27k till I got it in 2018 with 129k, and I bet if you add all that up its over $10k (big ticket was a trans rebuild @ 57k miles because all Audis built before midyear '06 had faulty CVT control modules that make the CVT eat itself). Hell, routine stuff like oil changes cost the PO $150 because it takes 7 quarts of synthetic. I would not have ever bought the thing if it didn't come with such complete service records, I would never buy any German car out of warranty without service records.
