Audi, like most German cars, have high maintenance costs and aren't nearly as reliable as Japanese models.
oh ok, seen some A6s and A4s on Auto Trader for like 6-8 stacks, with 80-130k miles.
So is an Infiniti G35 with 100k+ on it good? being that it is Japanese
At around 10k, I'd say you could probably get one on average with about 100-120k miles. This is just a rough estimate, based on what I've seen on eBay. The G35s around me (Boston area), are usually more expensive - I just saw a Black sedan 2004, with 102k miles going for $11k on craigslist.
They could be cheaper depending on where you live. Also, it depends whether you want a sedan or not, an automatic or manual. An automatic sedan is probably the cheapest (Manuals are rarer, sedans are cheaper), I think you said you wanted a sedan.
They could probably last you until 180k+ depending on how you treat it, and whether you mod it or not. To be honest, if you want a car lasting you 3-5 years, you should either get one new, or one that has been used very slightly. If you drive around alot, the miles will pile up and naturally the car won't last as long.
Your best bet is to get the Honda - accord or civic. I'm a huge fan of the fit, cause of the space and style, but a lot of people don't seem to like it. Since you plan to keep the car for 3-5 years, you should really get a cheaper, more reliable car. Infinitis are great cars, but Honda I'd say is better.
