More than twenty-five years ago Audi car sales took a nose dive after Audi was wrongfully accused of making cars that accelerated on their own. US sales dropped from 75,000 to 15,000. (See note 1.)
Now Audi is riding high and is on pace to sell over 117,500 cars in the U.S. this year and over a million cars a year worldwide.
Audi has gone back to its roots in car racing and has done extremely well. They are giving BMW, who sells twice as many cars as Audi, a run for the money!
Servicing and repairing an Audi is much like any other European vehicle. They require a little more maintenance, and like any sports sedan, they require replacing the tires and brakes more often.
In fact, the brakes and tires installed on an Audi are de
signed to give maximum performance rather than longevity.
