2002 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
... but a serious headache since then. In for over $7,000 in repairs since turning 4/50k. Would have been more if the dealer hadn't taken pity on us. Literally in the shop to the tune of $1200+ every six months. And I'm not talking maintenance. That is expected. Conversely, my 2001 BMW just had its first non routine service (less than $2k btw). With just over 91k miles and at 7 years, the time has come to replace this vehicle. My advice if you must drive an Audi is to get yourself a nice 36-48 month lease and then toss it back to the dealer before the problems surface.
Drives ok. Nice family car. Holds a fair amount of stuff but less than our comparable Volvo V70. GREAT BOSE AUDIO system. Probably the best I'll ever own.
Aside from improving the long term reliability, offer a diesel to offset the poor mileage that you get with most AWD vehicles.
