2003 Audi A6 2.7T from North America
Lots of repair costs, but is wonderful to use
Power steering failure.
Coating peeling off from the area around the window controls on both the driver and passenger sides.
Fan belt failure at 95k miles.
Control velocity boot corrosion.
Power window failure x2.
Transmission fluid leak.
Windshield washing fluid leak.
Ash tray lid doesn't close x1.
Sun visor latch broken x2.
Steering makes a high-pitched sound when turned all the way to the left or right.
The trunk opens slowly and doesn't open all the way on its own.
The Bose audio is awesome.
I just wish that the audio system had an auxiliary input by default. I had to buy some aftermarket pieces and rig one.
The seats are very comfortable and the leather is great.
The interior of the car looks great, except for the peeling film by the window controls.
The rear seats fold down to give plenty of cargo space.
The trunk is nice and flat, unlike other cars, which makes the whole trunk more usable.
The thermostat can be set to an actual temperature, instead of just a hot/cold dial.
The built-in garage door opener means that you don't need to carry an opener in your car... if you can get the built-in opener to work. I was finally able to, after several attempts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I've owned a 2003 A-6 Quattro since new, and love it; 59000 miles.
Only problem has been brakes: I replaced the rotors with larger and thicker calipers, and pads with ceramic... now great brakes without the organic dust.
It's my fair weather fun car; I have a Mercury for my winter daily driver.
