2000 Audi A6 2.7T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

i bought this car 2 mos ago with 83k. i loved it at first. i feel safe in it. i just had the timing belt go before it should have and cause major engine damage. i have heard a lot about sensors going bad. i would never buy another one with out a warranty. it is just not wise or financially practical because something is bound to go wrong because of the notorious electrical problems, and the cost to fix is high.


Best Features

Feel safe in bad weather. Inside is comfortable and appealing.


Worst Features

My timing belt went at 86k. the owner manual didn't suggest changing it until 105k. Electrical dependancy.

2000 Audi A6 2.7T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

I have had my 2.7T since new (6 years) and it is a superb ride. At 70,000 miles I upgraded suspension with Eibach springs, Bilsein gas shocks, 17" BBS wheels and Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires. Wish I had done that sooner. The handling has gone from floaty to tracking on rails. The turbo motor is smooth, fast and fun. I can take the care anywhere and it looks great, especailly now that it's lowered a bit. Audi is making terrific cars these days. I love it. Only disappointment has been the brakes. Typical Audi issue.


Best Features

Turbo


Worst Features

Brake rotors warp quickly.

Review

Bought the car with 78k miles, to use as a weekly commuter vehicle, between Long Island, NY and New Hampshire, while doing contract work in NY. I was familiar with a friend's 4.2, and figured a quattro drive was critical for long weekly drives, through a Northeast Winter. However, because I insisted on a standard transmission, but still wanted performance, I went with the 2.7 biturbo 6-speed(sport package).


Best Features

The seats, driving position, appointments, suspension, Quattro drive, and engine are all top notch.


Worst Features

I agree with criticisms regarding reliability issues, and cost to fix. Not for the feint of heart (or light of wallet). That said -- this car (now Dahlback chipped) is the performance cruiser I always dreamed of.

2000 Audi A6 4.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

Attracted by styling and beautiful interior, and of course, typical German handling qualities. Ride and comfort exceeded expectations. Some quality glitches but nothing major. Still as good as new with 65K.


Best Features

Styling features, stiff road feel for a large car, very drivable, peppy but not a hotrod. Very comfortable on the highway, better than any other car I have ever driven. And there's that 4.2L engine to get you going if need be.


Worst Features

Quality control was only average, not nearly what I expected from a $50M car, not much different from a Mercedes or BMW or, frankly a VW.

Review

This is a beautiful car but very expensive to maintain. Frequently has major mechanical and electrical problems that cost not hundreds but thousands of dollars to fix.


Best Features

Car is fast, all wheel drive is amazing in bad weather.


Worst Features

This car and Audi brand is very expensive to maintain and the reliability is very poor. I have bought Audis for 20 years but after my recent experience would not recommend these cars.
