Audi seem to have everyone convinced of their quality ... members feedback to Which said something different:
"You’d think a luxury car brand would be reassuringly reliable, but in Audi's case you’d be wrong. Feedback from Audi’s owners reveals lacklustre reliability in its cars' first three years of life, and downright disappointing dependability for cars aged three to eight years. At first glance, Audi’s average fault rate of 26% among its 0-3-year-old cars doesn’t seem alarming. But the breakdown rate of 8.5% raises an eyebrow. It’s the third highest we’ve seen across cars this young. That means that one in 12 owners we heard from had their Audi break down at least once in the 12 months prior to filling in our latest survey."

Quality and reliability are not the same thing. My point is that Audi knocks the socks off Tesla in terms of comfort and refinement and build quality in similarly priced vehicles. It’s not even close.
Everyone will have their own experience with reliability. I’ve owned eight new Audis and only had one warranty repair - a faulty bonnet release catch. It’s partly that reliability that has kept me faithful to the marque. I can’t comment on long term reliability because in 38 years of driving I’ve never kept a car more than 3 years and I’ve never had to get an MOT.
