My 2001 Toyota Avalon was totaled earlier this week; I've had the car since I was 16 and am now 22. I had planned on keeping the Avalon for another year and then buying something new next winter after graduation but that changed this week. I found a 2006 A4 2.0T Quattro for $8,995 and it has 123,000 miles on it. Carfax shows only 1 owner and no accidents. Many things have been replaced within the past 50,00 miles including; timing belt, water pump, all four brakes, tensioner, idler, and tires. I think its beautiful and want it a lot and only plan on keeping it for about 2 years. My dad is saying no because he says the maintenance is pricey including $100 oil changes..thoughts? Also, how are they in the snow? I live in Cincinnati and our winters are never predictable.
