Fun to drive by Gman on 10/23/2006. Trim: 1999 Audi A6 Avant Quattro, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Styling fit and finish is beautiful. Handling and ride is great. Quattro is felt even in dry weather handling.
Cons: Just problems, the same ones over and over again. For example I have replaced the passenger window regular 4 times, the a/c control module 3 times, both upper front and rear control arms 3 times or more. replaced tensioner seals 3 times and its leaking again. Driver headlamp assembly 3 times, oH and how about the window washer pump or reservoir 3 times and its leaking again. Auxillary fan and the control. Each of these jobs O rings when not in warranty are a min of 1K control arms are $750 a set. Let put it this way, my extended warranty company hates me to the tune of over 10K, and I've paid at least 5K on repairs that they didn't cover durning and when the warranty ran out.
Overall review: BTW brake jobs are $500 an axle and they last about 25K miles if I'm lucky. Really a wonderful vehicle to drive if only it didn't thousand dollar you to death. Also I forgot to mention its a little poky with only 200hp and nearly 4000lbs that is what you would expect.
