Is it very risky to buy a used 2013 A7 (not a certified)with 6800 mileage from dealership?

Car looks clean. Only 6800 mi so it's still under warranty. Double check the car fax for no accidents but okay.

What is the risk involved in buying a car with a valid warranty until 2017?
Unless the car has been heavily crashed (even a minor crash is fine) which I doubt it, I do not see the "risk"

Car is a Prestige and has the innovation with the driver assistance pack.. as long as no paint work $65k is a great deal.

I was in a similar situation 1.5 years back and bought a CPO 2012 Audi A7 with 4,000 miles. The dealership that sold it didn't properly CPO inspect it, but once we got all of that squared away, I've had no issues. Even those initial issues were all covered/fixed under the warranty.

the risk is nil if you get signed validation that it is not a buyback and have it checked for body work at a reputable shop.

Pass. Interior looks filthy. Or is it just the aluminum trim? Take it for a lengthy test drive and check to make sure the adaptive cruise and blind spot radars are working. It would be remiss to pick up a bargain and find out later it has some sort of electrical gremlin that can't get exorcised under warranty.
