Hope someone can give me some advice.
I'm thinking of buying an audi a6 2000 X reg 1.9 tdi, 80k on the clock,
timing belt not done. Asking price £6.5K. My main concern is
servicing costs. I'd be looking to keep the car for 3 years. Anybody
any ideas of approx servicing costs? I've had quotes for annual
servicing of between £250 and £300. But my main concern is anything
big likely to go wrong in that 3 years? When do Turbo's normally go?
Anything else I should look out for?
I'm a bit concerned about that too with my TT 3.2. Because, so far, in
roughly a year of ownership, it hasn't exactly shown itself to be either
very reliable or particularly durable. So I'm afraid repair costs will
become quite large if I decide to keep the car past its initial warranty
From a reliability standpoint....I've already had the instrument cluster
replaced due to a non-functioning fuel gauge. I've had intermittent issues
with all sorts of things software-related -- windows getting temporarily
stuck slightly open, the coolant level sensor and headlight sensors falsely
indicating problems, etc. Also, the dashboard has started to come loose on
the driver's side. And the outside-facing "fold forward" lever on the
passenger seat no longer works.
And from a durability standpoint.....I've already managed to bend a rim
and have 3 flat tires during decidely non-aggressive driving.....which
surely is not the fault of Audi, but frustrating nevertheless.
That said, I still love the car immensely. Go figure.....
