Find out how long the vehicle has been on the lot and what the wholesale (black book) price is and start from there UP. Never pay sticker on a used car because you know the dealer paid much less for it either in trade or at a wholesale auction. The longer the used car sits on the lot, the less value it has because remember values decrease as the car gets older, plus the dealer has to pay insurance on it. Good luck!

Bought it! 2+ weeks - about 2000 miles. Car is great. Smooth, quiet ride. Handles wonderfully. Black/black - premium and winter/cold weather package. XM. Only really odd thing is absence of automatic or day-time running lights.
Paid well below Edmunds and KBB market prices - even more below market, as a Certified vehicle. Car was on the lot 1 day when I called, 2 days before a did a deposit over the phone, 5 days when I drove 150 miles to test drive, inspect - and, buy.
Nearly 2 years of the original warranty remaining, then 2 more/50,000 miles. I have high hopes.
Mohegan Lakes Audi in NY state. Very good experience.

We're thinking seriously of a 2007 A6 Avant Sline. Has anyone tried this option yet? I've tested the Sline sedan, and it drives really well, but there's no way to test the Avant since no one seems to have one for testing.
#295 of 301 HELP-00 Audi A6 Wagon, 59k. Should I buy this?
Apr 21, 2007 (11:25 am)
I have never owned an Audi, but am looking at a 2000 A6 wagon, with 59k owned by an elderly couple. Im wondering if I will be opening a financial downfall with an older Audi. I had a Saab before and it was an electrical nightmare. I now have a mazda which has been GREAT, but I like Audis and want the room of the wagon and the AWD. Does anyone have any advice? I am a single girl and I dont want to get myself into trouble here. I was going to bring it to a mechanic as well, but do these things go downhill after they reach a certain mileage? At what point do they need a timing belt? Any advice would be truly appreciated!!!! THANKS A MILLION

Help, is anyone out there? I just brought a 1999 Audi A6 Wagon on 3-3-08. I'm wondering is it going to give me trouble. Is it a good car or because of the year and mileage, is it worth my while. It has 102,000 miles on it. I have been feeling unsure since I brought it, I don't know but something just doesn't feel right. Please help me.

What engine did you get? If it is the 2.7T, you are probably in for engine trouble. Regardless of the engine you are probably in for suspension problems with that mileage.

I own a 2006 Audi Avant A6 with 62500 miles. At 44,000 miles I had difficulty with the MMI system. The dealership made a repair. Now I'm having a similar problem and dealership is telling me there is a short in the system requiring replacement part with repair costing $1500. Although all of the service has been done at the same dealership in KCMO, they will not warranty the part or any of the service. I am interested in knowing if this is a common problem or my situation is unique. Also if there any suggestions of contacting Audi of North America or other helpful services. Thanks for any assistance. hearthawk

I also own a 2006 Audi Avant A6. Something drained my battery back in December and it locked my key in the ignition. I was able to charge enough to get it started but my MMI went blank. The dealer replaced a $1,500 Boze module, and a module for a tail light which I was not having any trouble with. When I picked it up I noticed the radio did not work anymore. Took it back and they said the radio had a short in it and that it needed to be replaced. I decided not to replace the radio as I really was not using it, but a couple of weeks ago after not driving it for a few days, the battery was dead once again. I'm beginning to wonder if the radio short may have drained the battery or if something may have spilled in the console causing a short in circuit. Does any of this sound familiar to your situation? Was Audi of NA able to be of any help?
