Hi, I'm in the market for Audi 2014 A6 3.0, local dealer is offering MSRP - 6% Plus 1500 Loyalty and then $2000 on a car with MSRP of $67000. Please let me know if this is a good deal or not.
I am looking at a lease on a 2013 Audi A6 3.0T Prestige - all packages - MSRP $62k - dealer offering for $56k plus tax. Lease coming out to $834/mo with 2000 down. To me this seems high coming from my BMW lease. What is a reasonable lease payment? I need 36 months/10k miles. Also any thoughts regarding this car vs BMW 535xi M sport package?

Hi, I have a 2000 Audi A6 4.2L (same as S6) and would like to put 245/45 R17 tire on. Because 255/40 R 17 are stock configuration, I am a little worried that the 245/45 R17 tire would rubbing the fender lip, when turning the wheels to maximum. Any problems with this issue? thanks, Jure
Greetings dwenger & Ann! I'm assuming you driving a 2000 A6 2.7 Liter, Twin Turbo powered car. If you have a Can Bus II Diagnostic device the first thing you should do is get a Diagnostic read out of your error codes regarding the coolant system. If you don't have that diagnostic device you could buy one at Target,Wal Mart or Pep Boy's should one of those be in your area. ... Read More
Greeting 4moneypit! Well in general terms one would expect a vehicle of t">link titlehat price class to have fewer problems . But then I drove an E34 BMW for twenty one years, 180k miles total before I finally said it's time to let go. AS for an Audi strategy, the more I read about U.S. Audi on this and other forums and having worked as a New car service advisor for ... Read More

The 1998 Audi A6 is a jinxed car. It is a P.O.S. period. I paid $10,000 for the vehicle and put the same amount into it for the 6 years I had it. First the wheel bearings, drive shaft, new brakes and then the tranny. Oh, did I mention before all of those expenses I put on new tires and mass air flow system, and regular maintanance? (all original Audi parts)That ... Read More
The following is my opinion based on my experience with my 2002 Audi, my friend's experience with their Audis and participation on this board (as well as others). If you are a novice mechanic and/or don't know much about Audi's, stay far away from this car. They are just too expensive to repair and the most odd things go wrong with them. The most common appear to be problems with the ... Read More
i own an a6 3.0 liter. while this hasn't been the worst experience of my life (very close), it certainly hasn't been the best. just yesterday, the transmission went out. the quotes i'm gathering are between 2k and 5k to replace it. my question: is this even worth fixing? especially after reading many audi forums and articles, i don't feel confident this will be the last of the problems my audi ...

I have a 2000 2.7 L Audi A6 and the lcd screen which displays different information about the car claims that I am getting 27 mpg on hwy and 14 -15 city. Unless you are always flooring the car I don't see why your mpg should be so low. You can also put in an octane booster and see if that changes anything. then again I don't know how accurate the ...

I should learn from you guys! I have a 2002 A6 with only 56k miles and I am pulling my hair out! Hindsight is great, huh? I still remember the day I chose the A6 over the GS300. Since that decision, I average repair bills over 1500 - 2000 per year. At 49k miles, the torque converter went. Luckily we caught it before it took out my transmission. Just last month ... Read More
YES! I have an Audi 2002 A6 2.8L, engine ATQ. I was driving and and the coolant light came on, I checked the coolant and it was infact empty, so I immediately replaced the coolant and continued to drive another 2 miles. The light came on again, I checked the coolant and it was again empty. I took the car to my mechanic less than 5 miles away. He didn't have ... Read More
I have audi A6 2002. 2 years ago there was an engine problem and I did repair it at the dealer splitting 6000 cost with Audi America. 42 months later Ignition coil light came and I got that repaired for 1800. Problem with Ignition coil surfaced again this time the dealer said it is the gasket and I ended up replacing the Gasket and all cylinders for 3800. Last week white ... Read More
Thanks JKAUDIA6 I will definitely look into that.
Greetings ALEXYAZ: Been following your post for a few days. Windows are a pain especially when it's raining. I use Silicon Spray which has a very light sewing machine type oil in it for all rubber seals on my car. In my area it's cheaper than Rubber treatments and last longer, in addition to making the seals black. TIP: Don't get it on the windows it smears. I also check different ... Read More
Wow thats great. mine just fixed itself. I haven't drove the car for a month and when I went back the windows worked. :)
Hi Alexyaz, I got it fixed with out spending a dime on it. It was just lubricant to be sprayed on the rubber itself and everything is done! :-)
Hi abniz I had the same problem with my window. I had to replace the window motor to fix it. However, I have learned the trick of revving your engine to have the widow go up. Please let me know if this helps.
Hi, I have a problem with driver side window. I think the plastic causing is that problem. If anybody can suggest me a reliable mechanic in the neighborhood of Rutherford, New Jersey. who they know & may have an experience. It would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Currently driving 2003 A6 2.7T with 92000 miles. I bought off the lease and purchased an "Audi" warrenty good til 100K or 1/2010. Basically has been a great car. Previously had $1400 or warrenty work to replace some airconditioning fans but nothing else since coming off the lease at 50K. All scheduled maintenance has been done at dealer. I took in today for 90K maintenance. Cost is $380 plus rear brake ... Read More
I just called audi to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 A6 2.7T it will cost me $360. but, I guess it is better then replacing the transmission.
Ok I have a 2000 Audi A6 2.7T and recently the engine is not working right. after coming to a stop I will step on the gas and the gears wont get caught to turn the wheels. Instead the engine revs and the car rolls until the the wheels work. I am thinking this can be a transmission problem but I really dont know. Could it also be the timing belt?? ... Read More
Hello, I am experiencing a strange problem with my audio system. I have 2000 Audi A6 with BOSE system. The problem what I am experiencing is that only rear speakers are working I cannot hear anything from my front speakers. Can anybody please give me some suggestions what to do? Thanks in advance
Hi camps I have the same problem with my 2000 Audi A6 2.7T. I haven't figured out why the engine bucks like that, but, the mancanic said that my timing belt is about to go. This was about a month and I didn't do anything to the car, not even fix my timing belt yet. However the bucking stopped?! What I did do, is eased the pressure on the gas pedal. ... Read More
I have a 2000 Audi A6 2.7T with HP2 4-Piston High Performance Front Brakes. I am tying to get the caliper off to change the front rotors and pads. When trying to get the slider pins off, I removed the caps and than inserted a 7mm hex key to remove the bolts. The 7mm hex key doesn't grip anything as there are just round holes. When I insert a smaller hex ... Read More
I just noticed my local dealership has something on their web-site that's a little different from what's on the official Audi web-site for the Summer of Audi Event promotion. http://www.auditysonscorner.com/specials-detail-inventory-other-audi-specialdeta- - ils-649.html For those lazy to read through it, it's basically $0 down and $699/month for 36 months. There's pretty much no fine print so I can only assume that it's for the absolute base model of the A6. What do ... Read More
I had one of these -- I'll give you some input: 1. What should I look out for that is specific to this model/year/engine? Nothing that I know of -- the 4.2 is thirsty, but the thing is powerful and smooth and sounds great. I had brake disk issues with mine which Audi fixed by replacing the entire brake system -- otherwise it only has a 5speed auto which TODAY would ... Read More
Well guys for the longest time I have had the Audi fever. I have my eyes on a 2000 V8 with 112000 miles and the price is attractive: 6700 and that is before negotiations which means 6500 to 6000 depending how well I can deal. The car looks nice and well taken care of. My questions are: 1. What should I look out for that is specific to this model/year/engine? 2. ... Read More
Mark, thanks for the nice comparo between your new A4 and the earlier A6. Not much to add other than I occasionally look at the A6 as an alternative to the E Class or a 5 Series. So for what it is worth, here is an interesting design issue. A frend of mine has an older A6 with the 3.0 V6. Nothing fancy nor exotic. Certainly not the twin turbo 2.7 ... Read More
Purchased an A6 2.7 T new in 2000 for $42,500.00.

Audi says it's "tiptronic" transmission fluid is "lifetime." Don't believe it. All fluids wear out in time. I owned a 2000 A6 and an independent mechanic warned me to have the tiptronic fluid changed every 40,000 miles or so. Yours should almost be on the 2nd fluid change by now. The mechanic told me he sees these cars at 60 to 90,000 miles w/ tranny failure due to worn out fluid. ... Read More
I was an Audi driver for almost 7 years. If not for the extended warranty purchased at time of sale for $2300.00, the car would have bankrupted me over cost of repairs. Purchased an A6 2.7T new in 2000 for $42,200 and sold in 2006 w/ 100,000 miles for $11,500 and lucky to get that price. These are cars that should be leased for 3 years and then returned just as ...

Your post is right on except the last part. I have owned Audis (100 & A62.7T) for almost 9 years and especially here in snowy, cold Minnesota, the twin turbo just isn't made for our weather. Too many sensors combined with twin turbo issues does not make a reliable vehicle. Wouldn't spend $2000.00 to get your A6 fixed, try to get another car. It is just one thing after another with ...

I am very confused and I hope that someone out there has some good advice for me. Here is my issue....I brought my 2002 Audi A6 to the dealer several weeks ago b/c my engine light was on. They said I had two problems. (1) A coolant sensor had to be replaced...no problem and (2) I needed a new torque converter...it could be done for $2000. GULP!!!! I initially declined to ... Read More
I recently bought a 2003 Audi A6 2.7T with 54,000 miles. About a week later the coolant light came on (so I filled it). Less than a week after that the light came on again so I checked it. It was empty just from driving to and from work in the city for a week. I filled it again and later that day the check engine light came on followed by ... Read More

I have a 2000 A6 Automatic that is stuck in 3rd. All the transmission gears light up in black on red rather than red on black on nthe dash so the colors are reversed. Help!!!
We had a '99 A6. At about 51,000 miles my wife was driving into an intersection when the timing belt broke. Stopped the car dead in it's tracks. (she could have been killed). Pieces of the belt flew into the engine causing $2000 worth of damage. With the dealers help Audi covered the expense although technically it was out of warranty. I wouldn't take any chances. Haven't given up on Audi ... Read More
I'm a newbie to this forum, so I'm especially looking forward to your feedback. I did a search for this topic, but didn't find anything similar previously. Well, here's my problem. I bought my dad's 2001 A6 2.7 with Tiptronic last summer. It's a great car and has only 68,000 miles. But a couple of months ago I noticed that when I started the car in the morning and put it ...

I loved the 2004 A6 2.7T (SLine? as they all were at the end?) -- I really loved the 2.7T -- was this the uprated version (more than 250HP?) I have been very pleased with Audi reliability (except the 2000-2001 rotors -- and 47K is young. However, IF it does break, it will likely be breathtakingly exepensive if it turns out to be related to the turbo/engine. I also am a ... Read More
I would appreciate some input. I just got quoted the following lease rates for the cvt, non quattro A6: 36 month 15k a year 46% and .00080 24 month 15k a year 54% and .00080 I am a USAA member so I get the car at 1000 under invoice plus any incentives. Can someone clarify the 2000 plus 1500 rebates/incentives and also confirm if the .00080 is right or wrong, as ... Read More
As mentioned earlier, Audi is also providing a $1500 cap cost contribution in addition to the $2000 incentive. With the added contribution, it should make your total due up front around $600. As far as the deal, I don't know what the $999 down is about but the $549 a month does not include sales tax, title or registration so that has to be added as well. After a long time ... Read More
Guys and gals, I just got off the phone with my area rep. Got great news for you. In addition to the $2000 lease incentive on 2008 A6 leases, there is also an extra $1500 available now. Money factors are still low at .00018 and residuals will vary by engine/drivetrain. -Jerry
Here's the deal. I normally purchase, and do not lease. But I have a unique problem. I just brought in my 2002 Audi A6 due to intermitent engine light. Found out I need a completely new engine / rebuild. Cost is insane. I asked if they would be willing to take the car and lease me a new one. Ignoring the insanity of a car dying at 65k miles even after ... Read More
Audi Care is $600 that pays for 4/50 maintenace that was free in past. And they will bump the residual 1% to compensate for it, so it esentially pays for itself. There's $2000 Audi Loyalty money on A6's thru March to my knowledge. So with a good deal from your dealer, I doubt an A6 like you want it will cost you $200/month more on a lease payment than the M35. ... Read More
I was driving my 2000 Audi A6, 2.8, V8 and all of the sudden if felt like the transmission went into neutral. I stepped in the gas and it did not move a bit but not like it normally does. Is my transmission damaged? I've heard that sometimes the transmission computer acts up and you need to re-set it. I've also heard that you can not service Audi transmissions because they ...

The Audi A6 is a car to be leased for 3 years under warranty and then returned to the dealer. I made the unfortunate decision to buy a 2000 A6 2.7T new and if the extended warranty was not purchased, the car would have bankrupted me. Bought new for $42,500 and sold in 06 w/ 100,000 miles for $11,500. Devaluation is probably about average for this type of car. Considering that ... Read More
I am about to buy a 2000 Audi A6 2.8 wagon, What do you think about that? I like that car and I had one before however, like to hear more from someone who has some experience on the same model and the year. thank you from New York :)
Hi, I've owned from new a 2000 A6 2.7T, 2003 A6 2.7T and currently a 2007 A6 3.2. They have proven to be reliable, fun to drive and IMHO good looking. They have spacious interiors as well as being the benchmark for interior layout and quality for the industry. The trunks are large (15.4 cu. ft.) and the rear seats fold down as well for added capacity. The Quattro all wheel ... Read More
I just changed my wheels today to put winter tires on my 2000 Audi A6. I used my parking brake (which I rarely do), but when I finished and went to drive the car, the parking brakes were stuck, even though the hand lever was released and returned to the "off" position. Has anyone had this problem of a sticking parking brake, and can anyone offer any solutions? My car is ... Read More
NO -- I did not spend any rear seat time. I was questioning the sales rep about how one would go about integrating a phone into the system that allowed you to check your voice mail. On*Star, lacking a keypad (and costing an arm and half a leg to use for calling), does not. The fact that the STS has bluetooth and the CTS does not (when a Mazda does) is ... Read More
For what its worth - I have a 2001 2.7T w/6-speed with 88,000 miles and I really like this car. I bought it new. It was hard finding a 6-speed on the lot and typically they were demos. 6 speeds got quite a bit of press for their performance and I was worried about how the demo units were driven so I had the dealer find a car that was still ...

Hey all- I have never owned an Audi, but am looking at a 2000 A6 wagon, with 59k owned by an elderly couple. Im wondering if I will be opening a financial downfall with an older Audi.

Just traded in my tired ex-sales vehicle (97 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 142k mi) for a 2001 Audi A6 4.2. Vehicle has sports and cold weather packages and is in excellent condition. My local mechanic gave it a clean bill of health. Concern is the mileage (78k mi). Lots of horror stories on this site + local dealer is warning me about the timing belt. Anyone have advice on 80k checkup and ... Read More
I have a 2000 A6Q that is soon to be replaced. I agree with everything said above. The Quattro will not cause any additional problems. The Quattro probably will get slightly (negligible) worse mileage because of the additional weight but if you cared, you wouldn't be buying an A6. You'll eventually have to replace the cv joints if you put a lot of miles on the car but you'll have to ... Read More
WOW. I had the following (not a complete list): 1995 S6 1997 A8 1999 A6 2.8 2000 A6 4.2 comfort 2001 A6 4.2 sport 2003 allroad 2.7T 2005 A6 3.2 with 18" wheels and 245 x 40 x 18" tires At the same time, my wife had multiple A4's, three TT's and one BMW X3 3.0. The A6 is the quietest of the bunch (including the A8), it also is both ... Read More
I believe that within the next five model years, all vehicles will have to be AWD in order to stay competitive in the LPS class. When I bought my Audi A6 2.7T in 2000, there were few nameplates, (if any), that could match Audi's engineering prowess ,(twin turbo,AWD, etc) and incorporate all this state of the art technology into a luxurious, sporting sedan. In 2000, I was driving one of the ... Read More
Bought it! 2+ weeks - about 2000 miles. Car is great. Smooth, quiet ride. Handles wonderfully. Black/black - premium and winter/cold weather package. XM. Only really odd thing is absence of automatic or day-time running lights. Paid well below Edmunds and KBB market prices - even more below market, as a Certified vehicle. Car was on the lot 1 day when I called, 2 days before a did a deposit over ... Read More
Well I've had 2 A6 2.7T's. A 2000 and a 2003 with very minimal repair issues. I had 5 series BMW's for 14 years and a Q45 until the Audi's. The twin turbo's give you 0-60 in 6.6 and good passing power. They also develop max. torque from 1800rpm to 3800rpm. The quattro makes the car feel very firmly planted and I drive it hard. It is fabulous in rain or ... Read More
I sold my 2000 A6 2.7T w/ 100,000 miles for $11,500 and bought a new Mazda Cx-7 for $28,350.00. Needed more hauling capacity, liked the way the Mazda handled, and changed brands with no expectations that Mazda will be more reliable than Audi. Buying a vehicle really is a crap shoot no matter what the forums or anybody says or writes. Liked the look and driveability of the Mazda, plus the ... Read More
In 2000, I picked up an A6 4.2 quattro sport -- it was a 2001 model. It had -- heck it was an alphabet soup of TLA's like ESP, APC, ETC, TCPIP, ABS, and a partridge in a pear tree, it had sat nav and a hands free factory phone for what that is worth (with a directory, phone book and so on), too. Now, the gov says "ESP" is a ... Read More
"facile comparisons of "the Germans" or "the Japanese" just don't hold any more. As you note, Audi is very well represented among the "highly recommended" (good drivers, reliable, good crash tests), and not a single MB is even "recommended." I resents the allegation and I resents the allegator -- seriously, though, I don't think that referencing places where CR or JDP suggest that readers should expect better reliability from Japanese cars ...

I have a 2000 A6 2.8Q that I have always noticed to shift hard, particularly between 1st and 2nd / 2nd and 3rd. A few weeks ago, I test drove a new A6 3.2Q and noticed the exact same thing. I love both my car and the new A6 but can't stand having to concentrate on how I push the gas pedal everytime I accelerate from a stop in order to ... Read More
I don't know or understand what you are asking in some of your questions but I'll take a stab at a few: 1. The temperature setting on your climate control has nothing to do with the temp of the air leaving the vents. The degree of temp you set on the display is the temp you would like the air in the cabin to be. If you select auto, the climate ... Read More
I work with people who have Acura's, BMW's and several other brands. I would say that BMW's are breathtakingly expensive to repair out of warranty. Some friends have a Lexus -- it is "largely" bullet proof. However, the owner tells me little wear and tear items are also breathtakingly expensive and keep going out. The phrase "overall the Lexus is very reliable, but it tends to nickel and dime you" leaps ... Read More
I don't have any data to back this statement up, but I don't think my 2000 A6 2.7T was a lemon. It would be fascinating to collect stories from owners that have put on the 100,000 miles that I did and compare the Audi driving experience. Appears from discourse with mechanics and dealers that the non-maintenance items that were replaced/repaired on this Audi were about an "average" situation for the miles ... Read More
I did read the comparison of a 2000 A6 w/100,000 miles versus a Mazda CX-7 as veering off in the direction of "hp/$$" as a way to the address that topic. I didn't get any other point from simply noting that their are cheaper cars which offer more horsepower and torque than the typical German LPS, but maybe there is one. I read it as just a comparison of Japanese and ... Read More
I'm not sure what your point is here. Talking about the power of BMW's 530i and Audi's A6 3.2 v the competition is very much on topic. I don't think "horses-per-dollar" was ever part of the discussion. All luxury performance sedans will score poorly by that matrix...they're luxury cars. You're paying for luxury after all, not just a big lump of iron with a lot of power. Ironically, your last two ... Read More
No kidding about your comment "and fours that w/o forced induction would have horse and buggy levels of power." I just sold my tired 2000 A6 w/100,000 miles and bought a Mazda CX-7. 244 HP / 258 lb. ft. single turbo 4 banger, almost the same specs as my old 6-cylinder twin-turbo Audi!Amazing low end power, not necessary to push this thing hard to get going,almost no turbo lag due in ...

This Audi, I'd bet can be had as a major bargain. The engine in it sounds sweet -- especially when you go deep on the accelerator. The reliability by the time the 2004's had come about (in the C5's history) should not be an issue. With 30K miles on it, it has 20K of the Audi advantage left, is eligble for the 100K Certified Pre-owned designation and there are also Audi ... Read More
Check out some of the earlier posts. 2006 A6s have been selling brand new for $6000 under invoice. I bought a 4.2 A6 for about $10k below MSRP and they were offering the same deal on the 3.2s. This was Audi of Alexandria in VA. You may want to shop around more, unless this is all that's left and you're hooked. By the way, I have about 2000 miles on mine ... Read More
Selling England by the Pound -- Genesis. You win the cupie doll, Pat! Here in Cincinnati, the new generation of BMW's with that spanky new "35" twin turbo engine are rolling out -- at this point, the 335 sedan and coupes are RWD, but already the 328 is offered with AWD and next year the X drive option will be added for about $1900. It promises to be a brisk seller. ... Read More
I know what you mean, I just made the leap to HD DVD and HD Tivo with DirecTV and the three LNB and the receiver with dual HD tuners. My first HD DVD just came today, "Serenity." Shhh, don't tell anyone, I could actually possibly, maybe, perhaps, actually see keeping this A6 beyond the lease. Audi's C5 came to the US in 1998 and remained pretty much the same through the ...

Back in the days when smoking (in a car) was even done, a friend of mine -- a smoker -- would kid me and say "Mark gets a new car every time the ash tray gets full." Since I am not a smoker, I only related to this comment in a symbolic way. My friend, now not a smoker (and I never permitted him to smoke in my cars in any ... Read More
As a card carrying geek (or at least a member of older-geeks-USA), the Acura has very little geek appeal from what I can see. My friends, my non-Audi, but often BMW driving/owning friends have, for years, called Audis the "technofile's" car (which is pretty close to geek.) This WAS because the Audi cockpits had full gauges, all wheel drive, knobs and push and pull buttons/levers and the word quattro spelled out ... Read More
I have a 2002 A6 3.0 quattro. I noticed that every 2000 miles - exactly - it resets to zero. This seems very odd to me as to why it would not go to 9999 and then reset. Has anybody else experienced this - the dealer contacted Audi in Gernmany and they tell the dealer that this is normal. Thanks in advance for replies Confused!!!
What do you mean by repair? I replaced the outer cv boots ($25 per)on my 2000 a6 in about 6 hours. Didn't really need any specialty tools either. I also replaced the rotors and brakes while I was at it. New cv joints run $200 per.
I did read the article, thank you for the suggestion. The starter/ignition problems however were geared towards a faulty advance key/start feature, which I do not have in my A6. I did get the car back last Wednesday after Audi stripped the software and reinstalled it, but the car is doing the exact same thing, it is not fixed. I was told by an acquaintance of my husbands, that in his ... Read More
Well ,my 2000 Audi A6 2.7T w/ 95,000 miles finally bit the dust. I noticed oil dripping and brought the car to an independent shop, 2 days before the extended service plan expired! The verdict: leaking turbos. The damages: nearly $4000.00. I had to produce every oil change receipt for the last 6 years and had to show that the oil had been changed every 8000 miles per Audi specifications. Have ... Read More
Car Man: Purchase Price Part: I am thinking about leasing a 2006 A6 3.2 with MSRP of $45,560 (not including destination charge of $720) Sunroof Pkg. Premim Pkg. 18 in wheels Based upon the MSRP the dealer gave a quote of about 550/mo before tax based upon 36 months with 15,000 miles. Tax would be for Florida...Miami. The invoice is $42,706. - Saleswoman also told me that there are current manufacturer ... Read More
Does Audi run any specials on the A6 4.2? I have leased two Audi's and I am up for renewal in Fev 07. However, I have been told that my local dealer should have deals come August. I would assume these would be on 2006's, but I am not sure if a hot car like the 4.2 would discount. My last Audi I was able to get out 9 months early ... Read More
As far as brake "shimmy", I went through 4 sets of front factory rotors (on my 2000 A6) with no solution until installing a pair of drilled Zimmerman after market rotors, and they solved that problem. Also, rotating and balancing the tires seems to take of driving "shake" every other oil change, about 12,000 miles.
Steve: Just be very sure that you have a thorough check of all transmission / undercarriage seals / gaskets. Leaking is a well recognized problem with the Audi A6 of the vintage you are considering. It cost me $2100 to have mine replaced (at 45,000 miles.) Then, in April of this year (49,000 miles...this is my second car), I was told that not ALL had been fixed and it would cost ... Read More
The A8 was not plagued with brake rotor issues that would merit much discussion. Two A6 4.2's (a 2000 and a 2001) however, went through 9 (NINE) sets of rotors during my ownership experience with them. The dealer and AUDI worked with me -- I was never without transportation and I can and will admit to levels of ebbing and flowing frustration over this situation. During this period of time, I ...

I would assume the 4.2 FSI V8 that will be in the A6 will improve its stats as you suggest. One thing, how much of that 325 lb/ft is available from, say 2000 - 6000 rpm, 90%??? How is the gearing, what is the final drive ratio and how overdriven is 6th? And what about the price of lima beans on Tuesday while we're at it. It seems as if the ... Read More

I'm getting ready to buy a 2000 A6 2.8 and want to know what to expect regarding service issues moving forward. The car has 53,000 miles. Excellent condition. Never owned an Audi and don't know what to expect. Any advice. Steve
I recently purchased a 2000 A6 2.8, W/88k. It sounds like an airplane when I use the A/C, dealer says its Audis are like that. I've heard similar noises from other Audis. Is this normal or is it a common problem. The air works fine and there is no loss of power, anyone info would be appreciated.
I believe the power column was avail elsewhere. I wonder what they were thinking since my 1997 A8 had this, as did my 2000 and 2001 A6's. Save a little money perhaps? Yet, I hardly miss it -- I rarely changed the setting even when it was power assisted. I am at least pleased that my manual wheel can be both tilted and telescoped and am nearly shocked when I note ... Read More
Your deal was good. I was told that Audi has a new program in Feb. The latest quote is A6 3.2 Prem, Sunroof and Heated steering wheel. 36mth/10k. $2000 out of pocket monthly payment of $588. +tx. A zero money out of pocket rate is $641.5 + tx. What town is your dealer located? ---thanks
I am a new owner of a 2000 Audi A6, 4.2L with 63,000 miles. Car is in beautiful shape....or so I thought. Very happy with car initially, but in less than 5 weeks of ownership I had a bad experience...apparently with the transmission. I was driving about 70 mph on highway when I heard and felt a loud "thump" that seemed to slow the car down. Within 8-10 seconds, a horrible ... Read More
A reputable dealership in Buffalo NY offered to sell me a 2000 A6 2.7T for 15000 before tax. The car has 64,000 miles on it. They claimed to have had an oil leak fixed (2400$) at the Audi dealership prior to selling me the car. And they told me the brakes may need to be replaced soon although they pass New York State inspection for now. I had the car evaluated ... Read More
kinda depends on the Audi...most Audis aren't very exciting either unless it's the turbo models. Definitely Lexus on reliability for those years; however, some Lexus models apparently exhibit erratic automatic transmission behavior, so I'd test drive a used one for a long long time before making a purchase. I like Audi styling better though. Lexi are rather bland by my taste. Repair costs on an out of warranty car also suggest ... Read More
If you're looking for reliability, then pick Lexus, hands down. If you want a fun ride, but understand there will be some repairs down the road, then go for the Audi...
I appreciate your comments. What is your opinion of the Lexus ES300 years 98 to 02 in comparision to an Audi? I know they are probably more reliable but what about handling, ride, etc.?
I think you're right about that...price for the BMW is about 3,000 more than I would want to spend on it versus the Audi. Having had two A4's the past eight years, one very good the other not so good, I still prefer the Audi for comfort, etc. Reading all these posts about problems, etc with Audi doesn't help but still feel the Audi is the better car in this case. ...

the 528 isn't in the same league as the 4.2. No question in my mind, go for the Audi, not to mention, newer model year...
