I have owned a 00' Quattro Manual Sport now for one year / 10,500 miles. I figured a maintenance cost per mile based on miles owned and total vehicle miles. I think it would be interesting to know where everyone here stands.

At 10,500 miles:

7.9 Cents Per Mile (CPM) for Parts/Labor/Fluids (excludes winter tires).

At 71,500 Miles:

Estimated 3.4 CPM.

I average $3.40/$7.90 per 100 miles.The total 71,500 miles bill includes wonderful items such as control arms front and rear, timing belt, throttle body, coil packs, and driveway oil changes.

Well I don't have the same comparison since I only owned my '98 A4 Quattro 2.8L 5spd for 13,600mi... but mine was: $0.18 CPM. From 62,861 to 76,492.
