#615 of 669 Am I not lucky?
Jan 08, 2009 (3:13 pm)
I purchased an A6 last August. Since then, I have been driven a loaner car (A4) almost 9 weeks becasue my a6 has been kept by local audi dealer to fix a probelm.
Even if they have spent total 9 weeks to figure out and been trying to resolve the issue the car has, still they have not resolved the issue. Now what can i handle this situation?
I am very skeptical to keep that. In order to evade a lemon law, they have not wanted to release the car before they confirm that the issue is resolved.
This means that I may drive a4 several weeks more.
I am really regretting about purchasing a A6 instead of lexus GS series ( expected better reliability).
the best thing I want is to return and purchase another brand.
Any suggestion for this situation would be appreciated.
Thanks a ton.

Purchased an A6 2.7 T new in 2000 for $42,500.00.
Problems with vehicle:
1.) air conditioning fitting replaced
2.) black paint peeled and repainted on side moldings
3.) alarm system failed and rebuilt
4.) driver/front passenger window crank assembly replaced
5.) climate control module replaced
6.) heater blower motor replaced
7.) valve cover/cam cover gaskets leaking and replaced
8.) secondary cooling fan motor burned out and replaced
9.) turbos cooked and replaced
10.) 4 sets of front brake rotors replaced
11.) heat shield broken from exhaust and taken off to prevent rattling
12.)air bag light sensor on...not repaired
13.) front bumper upgrade underneath, almost torn off parking under curb stop.
14.)air conditioning weak on hot summer days....not repaired
15.) heater motor blower weak on cold winter days.....no further repair`
16.) front fog light burned out....assembly replaced
17.) remote key fob has poor distance....battery replaced.....no change
Sold car in 2006 w/ 99,900 miles for $11,500.00.
Would definately return and purchase another brand , if possible. The Audi was a great driving car w/ a fantastic interior and just plain poor mechanics/electrical components. An incredibly complicated vehicle to repair which should not be owned w/o warranty protection. A 3 year lease and return example would be best case situation for this type of automobile.
#619 of 669 Good deal for 2008 Audi A6 4.2 used for test drives?
Jan 16, 2009 (10:29 am)
2008 4.2 with following options
Sport Suspension 1BE
Floor Mats 6MM
Audi Ipod 7D3
Audi Lane Assist 7Y2
19" Wheels PQ4
I made $1k deposit for dealer to ship car (he says cost him $400 for 120 miles ) from another out of state dealer and then "found out" it was test drive car with 350 miles! They dropped $1k on price and agree to pay shipping when I complained.
Dealer is quoting $62,330 MSRP Edmunds shows $63.800
Last offer from dealer $52,800 before tax, etc.
Are the following dealer incentives still in effect from a Nov 18 post on this board?
Nov 18 A6 incentives
3000 old inventory incentive
5150 value incentive credit
If so, I calculate his costs (invoice-incentives) at $48,861
Should a test drive car get an additional discount?
Should I pay any other compensation for him getting it from another dealer?
Dealer is listing almost identical but <10 mile car ($2k fewer options but wrong color) for $49.9k Retail on Internet

#623 of 669 South FL A6 leases (2009)
Mar 08, 2009 (7:03 pm)
I have a 2006 A6 lease that is expiring. Presently pay $567/mo incl taxes (basic model: 3.2 engine, 12k mi/yr, no navigation, no sat radio). My goal was to pay nothing down and same payment for a similar basic 2009 A6 lease. Given economy I thought this would be achievable, but dealer was unwilling to consider despite my offer to do the deal on the spot.
Any recent So FL A6 lease experiences anyone can share?
#624 of 669 A6 2006 3.2L Used CPO - Dealer Price?
Mar 12, 2009 (8:49 pm)
I'm looking to buy a 2006 A6 with TipTronic and the following options.
WB6 - Sunroof Package
PPX - Premium Package
PAW - Cold Weather Package
QU0 - XM Satellite Radio
2ZM - Heated steering wheel
With around 25-40k Miles
According to Edmunds with those options and clean condition
25k Miles - $25,368, CPO - $27,855
40k Miles - $24,372, CPO - $26,825
What do you think though? This would be my first dealer purchased car so I don't want to get taken. I was thinking with 30k miles and CPO around $23,500?
Thanks in advance!
