General Comments:

I absolutely love this car, plain and simple. It is a beauty to look at, and in the winter it is wonderful with the AWD. I swear by this car honestly, I wish it didn't get wrecked a couple months ago, and even after it was in a BAD accident, it still ran!

It had some problems, so don't get me wrong LOL, but all in all it was literally one of the best cars I've ever owned. The Bose sound was pretty good; I think if it was newer it would've been better personally. 6 CD changer, but who uses CDs anymore?

Highway gas mileage was adequate I'd say, got around 25 MPG, longest distance I drove was about 300 miles, and then around 300 back of course; it handled great honestly. Even drove to the mountains in it, high altitude, and the steep hills took a little toll on it TBH, but it still made it there and back no problem.

The heated front and REAR seats were wonderful, sunroof, slight tint that automatically came with the car. The only thing that made me upset was that it did not have steering wheel controls for the radio. Honestly, I'm looking to get this car again, maybe a newer one though. I live in Philadelphia and last winter was terrible, and I hear that we're getting a repeat, but with this car I totally felt safe (and new tires helped LOL). Now I'm looking to get a Lincoln LS, but IDK yet.

All in all, if you're looking for a great looking, pretty reliable car, I'd say go for it!

2000 Audi A6 Avant 1.8t 180PS from Portugal


Fast, comfortable german... but expensive




Oil pressure sender.

Dome lights.

Turbo blew at 180.000.

Gearbox is getting hard to shift.

General Comments:

Good car with outstanding build quality and comfort. Sticks to the road like a big sports car (has 18 wheels on 225/45 tyres) . Great performance also.

However the downside is that it will cost you a lot... It's cheaper to maintain a Jaguar six or a Range Rover V8 than this thing. There isn't a month that I don't get a new problem...

I still love the car, and recently installed LPG in it.

2000 Audi A6 Quattro 2.7 from North America


Not worth having it if you can't afford the HIGH repairs



Bought the car from an Audi dealer. They were supposed to have done a 350pt check and service the vehicle. 1st week, I realised the headliner is sagging, took it back to the dealership. I was told bluntly, it's your vehicle, do whatever you want to.

Another week, found the left front window doesn't work properly. Slow to pull up the window, and sometimes doesn't even pull up. Cost of repair, $350.

Another week, the coolant tank emptied out.

3 months: car won't start one fine evening. Took it for repair at 49000 miles. $5000.

Items changed: catalytic sensor, ignition sensor, both fuel pumps, both water pumps. Dealership took 45 days to identify and repair the vehicle.

One more month, tires worn out.

One more month, brake pads worn out.

3 months (8 months with the car), ABS light starts blinking. Took the car to a different dealership. Following repairs done:

Engine mounts.


Total repair: $4800

Took the car home, next day the car started wobbling, check engine light on, took it to a different Audi dealer; they found, both AIR PUMPS have failed. Repair cost $1300.

8 months later: Air bag light on.

2 months (2 years after buying), check engine light comes on. The torque converter has a faulty gasket seal that needs replacement, Since that cannot be replaced, the whole assembly needs replacement. Cost of repair: $5100.

I have finally decided to dump the car, but all I am getting is $1000 as trade in. The car is immaculate from the outside, no scratches, nothing, got new tires (less than 5K miles).

It has really been a pain on my wallet to own this car. Not sure if it's just this Audi, or all Audi's have these issues.

11 year old car, has less than 64K miles on it.

Good luck guys, I have wasted 20K on it since I bought it.

General Comments:

Good car, poor maintenance and repair options. Audi needs to improve on its repair ability, and the cost of repairs. It's way too expensive to own and run the car.
