2001 Audi A6 Quattro 2.8 from North America
Audi A6 Quattro 2.8 is well built and wonderful!!!
I bought the car used, so I had to bring the vehicle up to speed. It needed a mirror knob, a cup holder, a window regulator, a camshaft position sensor and windshield washer reservoir. I decided to go ahead and replace the timing belt and tensioner, water pump, seals, serpentine belt and tensioner since the mechanic was in there anyway and it would not cost much more. I found a good mechanic at the local Damascus Citgo 301-253-3857, Sadik and I feel he has been efficient and honest and not nearly as costly as the dealer besides he is convenient.
I am having him look at the air compressor re: bearings and realize that may mean an a/c compressor and a/c drier, but it is not necessary right now. By having the overview though I can budget accordingly and limit my surprises. Let's face it, it does have 1/2 of it's car life lived at 6 yrs old and is bound to need a few new parts to help it run like the brand new ones.
I love the interior detail. I think the car is beautiful. I am very content with the 2001 Audi A6 Quattro 2.8. I don't need the faster car and I believe this one has good ratings. It needs the normal maintenance, but I don't think it requires any more than that. Yes, parts and labor can be expensive if you do not shop around, but if you take your time and plan for the maintenance items you can buy the parts on line at a reasonable cost.
It drives like a dream and makes me feel like a million dollars. I'd do it again :). This car is worth it. GO AUDI!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
