Buy vs. Lease Audi A5 Convertible

Hi! I am looking into the A5 convertible, and my thought was to buy it since I plan to keep it for a LOOONG time. I currently have an Acura with 170k miles, and it still runs great. I have heard Audis become problematic when the miles get high, and it is best to lease. I would prefer to buy, but do not want it to become a money pit once the warranty runs out. Thoughts????

    Well... you either want to keep it a long time or you don't. Once you make that decision, then the other question is pretty easy.

    Even if you buy the car, you aren't stuck with it. If by the time the warranty runs out (4 years), you should have a pretty good handle on how reliable the vehicle is... If it seems problematic, you can ditch it. If it seems good, just keep it...
