I bought the car with 130,000 miles on it, and it was said to be in great condition.
About a week after I purchased the car for 7,000 dollars, the front wheels would just lock up on me with no warning, no matter how fast I was going. The traction control light would come on, but I wasn't getting any codes back that led me in that direction. Turns out it was the anti lock brake pump was going out, and the reason the traction control light was coming on, is because the traction control and the ABS are tied together.
So I got that fixed, and shortly after that, my car would turn over, but not start the first time, but it would start on the second try; that lasted about a week, and now my car won't start at all. I'm still not sure what is keeping it from starting (I'm sure it's something with the fuel system; fuel pump, electronic throttle control, fuel filter) or I guess there is a possibility it could be the timing belt, but I'm not sure.
To make a long story short, I bought my 2002 Audi A6 2.7t 5 months ago, and it has been in the shop for 4 of those 5 months. So it may be considered a well built car, but I assure you, it will be the last Audi I purchase in my life!!!
Nothing but problems!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
