Default Considering lease of 2015 A3 have questions

I've always wanted an Audi. I'm scared of their reliability. I figure if I get a 2 year less I should be free of problems or at least I hope. For those that have newer Audis, do you have issues with the car. Does Audi roadside assistance tow for free? And how much does a standard service appt like oil change usually cost? Thanks for any info.

Audis currently rank ontop for reliability of all German brands. They are good for the first four or so years, then things start going wrong and are expensive to fix (like all German makes). You can't go wrong so as long as you are under factory warranty and don't keep the car forever. Dealer service and treatment is also tops in the industry. Tows are included, but only up to a certain distance. Loaner cars or outside rentals are also included for any work projected to take more than 24 hours.
To sum up, it's all worth it so as long as you are under warranty.

I have owned my first Audi for slightly more that 3 years now and have had no issues. Having Audicare for the maintenance also helps.

I just bought a new 2015 A3 2.0 quarto after owning an A6 for 8 years. I have 700 miles on it, and have needed 3 calls to Audi roadside assist, 1 for a tow and 2 for flat tires.

The 1st call was at, no joke, 300 miles. The fuel pump went bad. It had to be ordered, and so I was without my car for 3 days. I had a loaner, and of course it was free. I have been told that the 2 bad tires have occurred because I hit potholes, and yes, it's been a bad winter, but I never blew a tire on my A6. Spending $600 on tires in 4 days has made me very cranky.

I'm worried about this car. Wish I could recommend it but at this point I can't.
