Is buying 2006 model Audi A3 a good idea?

It depends on the condition of the car, if the car is in good condition, has received scheduled service and been well maintained – then it would be a good idea to own a 12 year old
Audi A3. But the age of the car affects its value and the maintenance, so a 12 year old car tends to have rust issues, degraded build quality and many of its parts like hoses, belts, gaskets, seals, wiring harnesses might have aged and need replacement. It would be a good idea to take a test drive and consult an experienced mechanic before making buying decision.
There are also other factors which need to be considered before buying a 12 year old car like: spare part availability, safety features, availability, mechanic for that model in your area, maintenance cost, emission norms etc.
My personal opinion is that, buying a 12 year old pre-owned car is not a prudent decision, if you want to buy a pre-owned car, it should not be older than 5-6 years.
