    2.8 Reliability

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Been looking for an avant pretty hard for the past few months
    I swear I think I've narrowed it down to what I want and then I find a model with an engine I know nothing about, so thanks for your patience...
    Anybody have opinions on the 2.8? I'd be pretty stoked to find a 1.8t because of how reliable they are for the most part but recently found an a4 avant with a 2.8 (130k) which I know absolutely nothing about.

    Any advice?

    2.8 is probably the most reliable engine Audi has produced provided it's been taken care of.
