Gets expensive after 70,000 miles
By BW on


2002 Audi A6 2.7T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


I bought my 2002 pre-owned Audi in 2005. This is truly an awesome car inside and out. The features and performance can't be beat in the same price range. However, you may be able to afford to buy an Audi, but you may not be able to afford to drive one. The transmission started slipping at 60K miles. Electrical problems (interior lights cutting on and off) were an issue, little noises and rattles (drive me nuts), the engine went to 300 degrees on normal summer days and finding someone to service the car was a task. Unless you live in a metropolitan area or down the street from the dealership, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. I traded it in after 12 months.

Best Features

Twin turbos, luxurious interior, smart features I never knew you could put on a car, sound system, comfort

Worst Features

Gas mileage is about 21 mpg on the highway. The turbos eat the gas. Audi needs to focus on reliability. I don't know if you could trust this car past 90,000 miles.
