Love the Car - $$$ Maintenance Bill
By Audi Fan on
2002 Audi A6 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I purchased this car after test driving many other European options - BMW, Saab, Volvo (my wife owns one and likes it), and one Japanese option - Maxima. Considering I have been a Honda, Nissan owner over the years, I was looking for something more exciting and I found it. My A6 has been wonderful; fun to drive, nice to look at and a pleasure on road trips. The CVT technology took some getting used to, but now I truly enjoy it. Knowing the possible repair bills down the road, I purchased an extended warranty and it was not cheap. Of course certain things are not covered, like replacing an automatic window clip for $450. The 40K maintenance bill was $995 b/c of high precision eng/trans.
Bose sound system, CVT, smooth/tight suspension, European styling, the amount of car you get for the money!!!
Cup holders are a joke; would like to be able to place my morning coffee someplace w/out worrying about a spill or breaking the holder. I concur with others the cruise control placement is not "user friendly". Love the car, though. Buy one after getting a thorough inspection and extended warranty
