2003 Audi A6 4.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Based on the reputation of how the German cars drive I crossed the line from Japanese and bought this car. It was the worst decision I ever made. At 70K miles everything falls apart. I have a huge oil spot on my garage floor from oil leaking, the airbag light stays on constantly because the device is defective (only $1,400 to replace it), then the transmission celanoid went out and cost me $1,800. DO NOT BUY A USED AUDI. I am sure these are great cars when they roll off the showroom floor because they are covered under warranty. I WOULD NOT BUY AN AUDI UNLESS IT IS COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. These cars are fun to drive, but they are not reliable and cost a fortune to repair.

Best Features

Quattro 4 wheel drive is amazing. These cars hug the road and are very fast.

Worst Features

Make the cars so the parts/components last. These cars are over-engineered and therefore have too many points of failure.
