I was thinking of buying a higher mileage A6 Avant or Allroad (pre-2006).
What kind of longevity can I assume for them with regular scheduled
maintenance and without major repairs? Will they go 150,000 miles? 200,00
My 95 A6Q wagon and 98 A6Q wagon both had over 140K miles on them when I
traded them. Maybe one of them even had 160K miles on it, I can no longer
recall. Neither was completely problem free but neither ever left me
stranded, and neither ever had a major, really expensive problem.
I have personal knowledge of one Allroad that was run for just over 200,000
miles by its original owner. It was a diesel automatic and was regularly
serviced at loosely 20,000 mile intervals. The engine was sweet as a nut but
it was sold because he felt that the transmission was developing what was
likely to be an expensive to repair fault.
Thanks to everyone who responded to my question... I think I'll go for a
higher mileage Allroad instead of a lower mileage non-Audi crossover or
small SUV for the same price. Then I'll have two Audis with the sweet 2.7
