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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

Aside from improving the long term reliability, offer a diesel to offset the poor mileage that you get with most AWD vehicles.
