Blame it on the electronics.

Blame it on the fact that you need more than a paperclip to fix a car.

Check out the timing chain:

Legend says the timing chain tensioners are plastic.

Ahhh Audi. This is why I don't buy your cars.

What advantage does this spaghetti system offer over a good old Mazda timing chain, for instance.

Or even simpler, a nice Toyota:

Sometimes I wonder why would Audi develop its own wide-angle V6 instead of simply resorting to the VR6. Or simply keeping the straight-5.

Fat?! My wife got her picture taken with Richard Dean Anderson earlier this year. He's leaned out quite a bit since then...he looks good.

Don't even get me started on VW stuff. The two 2000 VWs my parents had occupied both extremes of the reliability spectrum. But from what I gather, a "reliable VW" is usually an oxymoron.

I wonder if old Volkswagens are still more reliable than new ones.

At least the old-school air-cooled and the EA827-powered Volkswagens used to be praised for their reliability.

My current VW has had no issues. I'm still not keeping it out of warranty.
