2001 Audi A6 2.8 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased my A6 2.8 used in 2002. It was in perfect condition and had low miles. It was, and still is, a beautiful car and a pleasure to drive. At the time of purchase, my commute to work was about 32 miles one way on interstate highway. Speeds where high and traffic heavy. I always felt safe in my Audi due to their reputation and side curtain air bags. I love everything about this car except its lousy maintenance history. It has been a very expensive (dollars and time) car to own. I can live with components wearing out and needing replacement but the continual oil leaks are unacceptable. It seems that I've had every gasket and seal replace on the engine, drive train and power steering.

Best Features

Beautiful and roomy inerior. Love those fold down back seats. I can haul skis, bikes, etc., w/o loosing aerodynamics (roof rack).

Worst Features

Fix the problem with oil leaks.
