2002 Audi A6 2.7 turbo from North America


OK, I always loved to own an Audi. I was obsessed with the features it has, amazing.

I worked hard and earned some money... then I turned my hardly earned cashed in for a 2002 Audi/ A6 2.7TQ. This thing was amazing. I was so happy and excited..

Recently my this car turned out to be my pocket's enemy. The first thing that went wrong was the rear window regulator.. $400.

Secondly I have smells and smoke coming out of the engine area.. I don't know how much this thing is gonna cost me.. but when I read all the comments on this site, it freaked me out so much.. I wanna sell my car... Damn..


Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2002 Audi A6 Quattro 3.0 from North America


Disappointed in the ridiculous repairs!


Cam seals went bad at 74000 miles, causing them, the actuators, and the timing belt to have to be replaced. Only 4 months out of the certified warranty period!

General Comments:

The best snow driving car that I have ever driven.

2002 Audi A6 from North America


Not worth it at any price, even a bargain price will prove to be a big mistake


Its hard for me to remember everything that has gone wrong with this car, but here goes:

I have replaced the brakes 4 times in 2 years 40,000 miles.

Had the axles replaced at 35,000 miles - $500.

The battery replaced at 40,000 miles - $200.

The thermostat twice in the past year - $250.

The water pump and timing belt are being replaced as we I type this for a whopping $1500. The mechanic said that to get to the waterpump, the front end has to be removed.

The catalytic converter has been replaced twice. This was covered by the warranty.

I have an electrical problem that no one has been able to fix, the car thinks the driver side rear door is open when I make right turns or hit the gas a little to hard from stop. So far, $500 in labor, but still no fix for the problem.

In the 2 years I have owned this car, I have spent over $4000 in repairs and maintenance.

General Comments:

It feels great to drive when it works. I feel safe and comfortable in it. The bad news is that it's in the shop way too much, and costs entirely too much to maintain. Nothing is cheap to fix on this car.

I would never buy another Audi. Should have read a little more on the car before I purchased it. The Audi web site states that they do not offer an extended warranty on any Audi vehicle, I now know why.

Last time I checked, having the axles replaced was not normal wear and tear. Should have bought a BMW. Quality German engineering, none of that built in Mexico junk, like Audi and VW

Have you read Consumer Reports lately? Audi is above BMW and Mercedes in terms of reliability, only 4% below average in terms of predicted reliability. BMW was 16% below, and Mercedes was dead last, and 123% below average.

In addition, no Audi ever has ever been built in Mexico.

In addition, all of these cars are designed in Germany, it's just the people that screw them together that is different. To imply that Mexican, Brazilian, Russian, Argentinean or Belgian workers put the cars together worse than Germans is ethnically based, when you look at it. And just as a rule of thumb - the majority of workers in Volkswagens plants are Turkish!

Place of production makes no difference. It's all in your head. The parts are the same, the design is the same, the engineering is the same.

Honda builds Accords in Mexico. Nissan builds Sentras in Mexico. Toyota builds Tacomas in Mexico. Nissan builds Versas in Mexico.

I bet you money that if those cars had problems, no one would ever attribute it to Mexican production.

'Nuff said.
