Keep looking for your next car. by Brian - Northern VA on 12/08/2004. Trim: 1997 Audi A6 Quattro, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Its plain looks can be improved. The AWD was the best part of this car. I can't say enough about the Quattro. More than once it got me out of major catastrophes. It was quiet, roomy, and felt very solid.
Cons: My car was a maintenance nightmare. It was in the shop at least twice a year for something that would typically be a minor repair and end up costing more than $1000. I had to have spent nearly 1/3 as much on repairs as I did to buy the car. Front bumper known to come loose, my sunroof broke and would have cost at least $3000 to fix, check engine light came on because of mass-air-sensor which would have cost a lot to fix and the problem really didn't affect the car - just made people not want to buy it. Gas mileage was not good, and you are required to use premium.
Overall review: I loved the car, especially the AWD, but I will never buy another Audi or Volkswagon again. I am mechanically savy, but I wasn't about to attempt repairs on a car as sensitive (computer controlled) as that.
