Do you read all the other lists out there for comparison?  :)

My guess: Audis (with galvanized bodies) last a lot longer than other makes. The chances of fuel lines lasting 10 years are good. 15 years? Not as good. 20 years? Not good at all. And Audis are one of the few cars to last that long as daily drivers.  But I could be wrong.
