2000 Audi A6 4.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


The car is now eight years old but has just 57k miles. The last three to four years I have sunk a ton of money into it. Every time I think I'm past the worst, something else happens. Most of it has been replacing the water pump, timing belt, etc. But there are things I have not repaired that should be, e.g. the instrument panel and AM radio. The information box is barely readable and requires a whole new instrument panel ($800+). AM radio went out years ago - estimate to repair was $2600! I was about to trade the car in the fall but it needed $1400 in work. Thought I would keep it a while longer, now the tranny goes bad (reverse clutch) and the estimate is >$7k. I'll never own another Audi.

Best Features

None anymore, I have totally soured on this car.

Worst Features

I would like a car that can still go in reverse when it has less than 60k miles on it.
