OK if it were not for some inherent problems
The brake drums and pads need to be replaced every 10K miles. The problem seems to be the brakes run hot and warp the drum. The service tech at the dealership said this is a common problem with the A6's. While it's under warranty that's fine, but the warranty runs out in 5K miles. This could be pretty expensive every 10K miles. Has anybody else had this problem?
Also I know theres a class action suit about the front bumper coming off when when pulling out of a parking stall because the bumper gets stuck on the posts holding the cement parking guard.
The radio was defective when I first got it and it took 1 1/2 years to replace it.
Over all the car has some problems that would have made me choose another car if I had known. If it weren't for the warranty and it was a lease I would have lawyers get involved.
The car does have a lot of options and pluses, more so then the BMW 5 series. I don't think the BMW has as much expensive problems though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
