Agree with both comments. If you can't afford $800/month in repair bills, don't buy it. Now, you might have very FEW repair bills, but having had a similar vehicle in the past that was running $800/month in repair costs, I can tell you that it is entirely possible. Even if you have few problems, each fix is likely to cost you a LOT, because there aren't any bargain parts on that vehicle and the repairs are complicated and take a lot of hourly $$ shop time.

I picked up a CPO 2008 Audi A4 about six months ago. It was a lease return with all maintenance done by the dealer who was selling it. 38,000 miles. I paid about $21,000.
I've put about 8,000 miles on it with no significant problems other than high oil consumption. Took it in for what I expected would be routine service. The dealer ran an oil consumption test and told me today that Audi would pay for a ring job. I'm safe under the warranty so I'll see how the work turns out. Other than that, I'm very satisfied. A CPO A-4 is much better than an Accord or Camry.
