2002 Audi A6 Avant Sport 1.9 TDI 130 bhp turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A good used car
The door contact sensor failed, resulting in the door being very difficult to shut: £250 to repair at a main dealer.
The indicator relay failed. The part was £25-ish, and easy enough to fit myself.
I really like the mechanicals of this car, the engine is utterly fantastic; far, far better than the subsequent 2.0 diesel.
I get 47 MPG when driving normally, and a big shove from the turbo when I put my foot down. Generally I drive quite sedately, and the engine will happily pull in any gear at just above idle speed. However, it'll zoom to the red-line too.
The brakes are great, and the handling is also fantastic, but ride is a bit harsh because of the sports suspension.
The car is very, very comfortable, I could drive it all day, the cabin is spacious, well laid out and a nice place to be. However, the trim rattles and squeaks from all over the car! The sun visors and boot cover especially, it is very annoying.
The dealers are very much hit and miss; there are some very bad ones, and some tolerable ones. Any work on this car will be expensive, so if you go to the dealer, get clued up on your vehicle, and understand what they tell you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
