What used Audi A4 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Audi A4 estate?

The A4 Avant isn't expensive to run if you're smart. True, Audi dealers can charge a fortune for repairs, but visit an independent specialist and the hourly labour rate halves. It's worth paying extra for genuine Audi parts, though.

The car monitors its oil, coolant and brakes and tells you when a service is due. Expect up to 15,000 miles between visits.

Insurance groups vary from group 10 to 20, but most models fall into groups 12 or 14. Fuel economy is good: diesels promise 40mpg, although the 3.2 struggles to better 20mpg.
