Review of the 2001 Audi A6

  • Refined and luxurious, the all-weather A6 family offers a satisfying alternative to the BMW 5 Series or Mercedes E-Class -- the 2.7T is our favorite.

    Large selection of engines, well-appointed interior, all-wheel-drive stability.

  • Cons

    Non-linear steering, questionable exterior styling, 4.2's molded rear seat.

Great to drive, horrible to

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Audi A6 2.8 Avant Quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)

Where to start ? Bought a 2001 A6 avant in 2006 with 106K on the clock. Car was in very good shape. Within a year started having some issue. Did timing belt replacement which is normal maintenance (about $500 in Audi parts if you do yourself). Have replaced the ABS module, 2 combi (EGR) valves, valve cover gaskets, etc. At 149K had to replace 3 steering arms ($700 at shop). Now transmission is acting up and need to replace at 151K. Still have problems with secondary air system and was told by tech probably carbon build up in intake manifold after all other attempted repairs. Great car to drive but very expensive if you don't do the repairs yourself.




High maintenance beauty

I love my Avant wagon. It is beautiful driving and looking car but more expensive than ever to maintain. I purchased the car with 57,000 miles on it and took excellent care of it. I even used premium Mobile oil. The catalytic converter went our at 70,000. I have paid out $5,000.00 in repair costs not including the converter which I never had replaced. If you have money to carry the cost of ownership go for it! The driving experience is like none other.

Wonderfully smooth car. A treat to drive, both in the city and on the highway. Lots of space for family, a big dog and luggage. For all of our needs, it is a great car. Previously, I had the Audi A4 sports sedan. Likewise, it was a wonderful car.




Poor quality car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Audi A6 2.8 Avant Quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)

This is our second Audi and like the other one, after 50K we ran into multiple defects (engine failures, electric windows, leaks). Our latest repair at 60K miles, is more than $3K. It's a fun car, but after the free maintenance periods (multiple repairs too, but since it's free maintenance and warranty you tend to brush over these quality issues), the poor quality becomes too much.




A good buy

No Problem Still under initial warranty.




A-6 avant exceeds expectations.

Exceeds expectations in every manner. I needed a car to accommodate seven of which two are children under six. There is ample room with great responsiveness even when the car is full. The car is reliable. I am bewildered as to why anyone would not consider this car.
