2002 Audi A6 Problems
The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.
Premature wear in various multi-link suspension components can cause noises that are difficult to diagnose. Worn suspension parts can also cause uneven tire wear and create steering alignment problems.
Our technicians recommend having the constant velocity (CV) boots and CV joints inspected at each service. Servicing torn CV boots early can prevent the need to replace the CV half shaft or CV joint.
Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve, combined with stress from the aluminum ventilation line attached to it, may lead to cracking of the connection nipple. The cracked nipple could leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will reinforce the nipple on the rollover valve or repair the cracking as necessary. This recall is expected to begin during June 2011. The Audi recall number is 20L8/JY.

2002 Audi A6 Reviews
Bought my 02 Audi from a lady who lived South of Denver. Got a great deal for the car. I love the 6 speed manual transmission. Excellent purchase of 150. for the extended warranty for 3 years. I saved me $$$. The only major problem that I have had is the clutch went out last year(a piece was broken inside) ouch!! 3400. to replace it. Other than that it has been a dream car to own
Just had it for a little over a week and the 02 sensor is bad and needs replacing. Car still runs great and it is fun to drive. I like the styling on the outside as well as attention to detail in the interior. Overall I like this car.
