1999 Audi A6 Avant User Reviews
- Excellent winter car, quiet, smooth ride
- Incredibly frequent and expensive repair bills
Purchased As Used
I live in Colorado and was looking to downsize from a Jeep Cherokee to something smaller with AWD, so I looked at the few options available for AWD station wagons. I narrowed down my car choice to a Subaru Outback, Volvo XC70, and this Audi A6 Avant which I ultimately purchased. Subarus are simply too expensive in Colorado due to their high demand, and I now wish I had purchased the Volvo instead. The particular A6 I purchased had, apparently, been in a severe front-end accident and while no frame damage had occurred, the repair job was sloppy to say the least. I am not educated in the ways of cars and had no way to tell this before I purchased it. I paid $8600 for it up front when it had 93k miles. One year and 15k miles later, I have paid an additional $6k in repairs (which works out to be around $500 a month). I still have repairs valued at about $1k coming before I move across the country in a couple weeks. It's still the best car I've ever owned and it performs far better than the Outbacks and XC70s in wintery Colorado, but I lost big time on this purchase and have all but paid for this car twice with no end in sight. I could have - and should have - bought a brand new car for the same or less....read morehide
