Default S5 Reliability

Hey everyone, I currented have a 2010 audi A5 2.0t and am looking to trade for a 2013 S5 with 57k miles. My A5 has been very reliable and low cost to maintain and really don't want something that is always in the shop. Can I rely on a S5? If not how about a silverado ilar year A7? Thanks for any fedback you can provide.

From the research I did before I bought mine they seem pretty reliable. Small electrical issues here and there than you get with an VAG product and occasional waterpump issues (same as the 2.0T) but overall the 3.0T is pretty rock solid. You'll want a gen2 trans if you're going auto which means 2013+ and you have to watch because early 2013 builds still got the gen 1.5.
