I can buy a used 2001 Audi 2.7T with about 40,000 miles for an
attractive price. I have researched the car, and it appears that back
in 2001 there were complaints about it, recalls, etcc. Of course,
there are complaints on all car forums.
If you own this model year, what do you think about the reliability?
Thanks- I have to pull the trigger, make my decision by next week.
This will be my first Audi.
Depends on what an "attractive price" is.
If you are in the US, invest $19.95 at carfax.com. You will need the VIN
number. It looks like it is a turbo model so I would have a qualified
mechanic check that over. The more I look at your post, I can't seem to
find what model you are talking about. A4, A6, etc. I presume the 2.7T is
A friend of mine had huge problems with the automatic gearbox on his A6 2.7
bi-turbo. By the way, the A8 4.2 have similar problems.
He had to change it after less than 100,000 km (not miles).
Hope this helps.
Perhaps it is the way your friend drives or takes care of his cars. I owned a
2000 A6 4.2. Finest car I owned until I replaced it with my RS6. My
son-in-law bought the 4.2 from me and it is still running very well, with about
100k *miles* on it. There is nothing wrong with Audi's Tiptronic xmsn.
