Like the 740, the A6 is a larger style luxury car, but with the advantages of Quattro all wheel drive and is coming in many dollars cheaper than the 7 series. I have had a 99 Audi A6 Avant since new in 1999 and it has been very reliable except for its important and (no more expensive than a Nissan) timing belt service. What else have I had to replace? Some CV joint seals, a defective auto-dim mirror, upgrade the rotors and put tires on it. Now I'm selling it for $7500 and it still looks show room fresh. Guess what? No one will look at it because of some stories about naughty sludged up turbo Audi's. I can say the 2.8 Liter 5-valve engine has been a paragon of virtue and that if you buy a used Audi, you should avoid the turbo engines. See the car at: http://gallery.me.com/sotolux/100157
