General Comments:

This car is a dream to drive and a nightmare to maintain. This model year has a specific problem with the ZF transmission and premature seal failure. See the technical service bulletin 2010879/11 (32 MIL on, performance unaffected (DTC 17125/P0741) ). Never buy one of these cars used unless you have a 3 year end to end warranty. This problem is present from Audi 1999-2003 years, so if you buy buy after these years.

After all this they had the nerve to attach to my diagnostic bill ($125.00 for 17 minutes on the Audi diagnostic computer) for leasing a new AUDI YEAH RIGHT!!! Never ever going to get an Audi again, never.

I have taken excellent care of this car since day 1, only the best oil, authentic parts, never ragged on it, it's just poor Audi service and poor Audi design.

WOW!!! that's staggering. You're better off dumping the car and going with a used Honda. They are gorgeous cars but only for the very rich.

I remember looking into buying a used A4 sport wagon and checking how much new tires would cost, that was enough to put me off!

Good car except it clunks every time I come to a stop. They put a new transmission in it and a new transmission computer. It still clunks hard when coming to a stop. No one can figure it out.

2001 Audi A6 wagon 2.7T from North America


Excellent driving machine at least mine is


I must be rare owner of 2001 27T wagon. Zero problems for 120K except CV boot. That's it. Runs like a champ.

General Comments:

Compared to all the comments on this web site I must have just lucked out. My 2001 has had nothing go wrong, but compare that to my 2003 Honda Accord which has a transmission go out due to heat buildup which bakes the gears right off and also brake problems which pull the car sideways. Not to mention electrical short in the dash board that keeps killing the engine. My Audi has out performed the Honda 3 to 1.

2001 Audi A6 2.7T 2.7 V6 Twin turbo from North America




After a few months, the car would begin to run on only 5 cylinders. Dealer could see this in the computer log, but could not find the problem. Began mass replacement of parts, such as injectors, coils, etc. Only after almost 4 years, was it tracked to a wiring harness.

The dealer also had to replace 3 catalytic converters and the power window mechanism in the driver's door.

Battery died from lack of water (regular service schedule at dealer).

Rear window leaked and ruined headliner.

Car spent 3.5 months at the dealer shop out of my 4 year ownership period. Only wonderful part was the Audi lease; I paid the lease off and turned it in early before the warranty expired.

General Comments:

Very fast car, great interior, very good in snowy weather.
