Looking for advice
Hi everyone...looking to buy my first used car. I will need to be versatile for a family (two parents, two young kids), as it will be an around-town vehicle, a sometimes commuter vehicle, and a weekend outdoor adventuring vehicle. There is a 2003 Audi A4 Avant Quattro (V6) that is available, for about 6000. It has 122k miles on it...good maintenance, had the timing belt replaced at 100k. However, I've come across some concerns this model sometimes requires frequent and expensive maintenance once the mileage is this high. I've read some other things that suggest its great and can be going strong at 200k. I'm prepared to pay for some fixes, obviously, on a car with this many miles, but I'd like some general advice: does this seem like a good purchase? a good value? and what are the chances this car is a lemon?
