2001 Audi A6 2.7T Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)
I think my father summed up this car perfectly when he said this car is great... up until 80k miles.
Yes, the car has exceptional awd power, fun in the winter along with luxury styling.
However the designing of this car is terrible and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
When my 2.7t's alternator went out it took an entire day to replace.
You have to take the front end off just to locate.
It's ridiculous!!! the 2.7t is designed to have an extended stay at the mechanic.
Over 100 sensors will cause the CEL to appear.
In summary, this car is like someone else's pet; its fun to play with, it will make laugh at times but i rather not want to keep it.
Six speed AWD.
Small Bi turbos allow for quick boost.
you can tell the quality of the a6 by 100k. either it has problems or it will run forever. access of all audi engines are tight and require removing the front bumper. these are not economy cars, if you are penny pinching look elsewhere, however the ride performance and safety are amazing.
