Pleased with purchase overall
By Thomas on
2001 Audi A6 2.8 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased this car over a year ago and thought a review would be of some help for others looking to purchase one. This is a great looking, great handling and riding vehicle considering the $4500 I paid for it. It was maintained well by the previous owner and had 130K on it when I purchased it. About 13,000 miles later here is what I have replaced: Aux. Fan for AC - $100, Two Front axles - $150, Front Brake Pads - $68.00, and Two Cam Seals - $16.00 for both. Audi wanted $1,800 to replace cam-seals. It took me approx 8 hrs to repair that problem. These are nice cars that are capable of running for a long time if maintained properly. If you are on a tight budget, don't buy one.
Love the dash layout, stereo, comfort, quality feel, seats...This car drives beautifully. Love the QUATTRO in the winter.
Replacing the cam seals was a bit of a pain. We had to pull all four cams, the timing belt, etc. This really should not have to be done to a car with only 140k on the odometer.
