Thats will be the quarterly oil changes and tyre rotations they like to do. Best Dealer scam ever, whole nation convinced if you don't do an oil change every 5 minutes the car will die - fascinates meI presume these are American stats, but where does the $8k on maintenance and repairs for the A5 come from? Must have been a lemon. I kept my last but one A6 for almost five years and spent about £1k on main dealer servicing. No repairs.
