Good afternoon!

I am in the market to buy a new car and wanted to get everyone's advice as you all seem to be sharp - especially when it comes to our German friend.

I currently drive a 2005 Honda Accord, named Goldilocks, and she has 178,000 miles on her. She has been my only car and has seen a lot to say the least. I had planned on running her into the ground but with my new job I need something a little more professional.

With that being said, I wanted to come here and ask for some advice. I am currently looking at the 2019 Audi A5 2.0T Premium Hatchback and the 2017Genesis G80. I have heard that the Genesis is a great car and very reliable, however, I do not know much about the Audi except that when they break or need a repair you end up deep in your pockets (or so I have heard)

Details for the Audi: (1 owner)
Odometer: 36,324 miles
Transmission: 7 speed auto with auto-shift
Drivetrain: quattro all-wheel
Engine: 2.0L 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine
Compressor: intercooled turbo


I would really appreciate everyone's feedback and any stories they can share!

Finally, is there a big difference between the 2018-2019 Audi A5 model? Does one seem to have less issues? What is everyone's thoughts on an Audi A5 vs the Genesis G80?


Thank you all in advance!

I can’t talk to the B9, but the facelift B8 that I have has been an awesome car. Reliable, apart from the odd thing that went wrong due to age. Servicing is maybe a little more expensive than jap cars, parts are dearer for those odd things you need to change
