2010 Audi A6 Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Faulty Torque Converter

A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Decreased Power and Fuel Economy from Carbon Buildup

The 2006-2016 Audi A6 2.0TFSI, 3.0TFSI, 3.2FSI and 4.2FSI direct injection engines are subject to carbon buildup in the intake system which can cause power loss, OBD codes and a check engine light, and a rough idle. In normal engines, the engine is cleaned by the gasoline flowing through the injectors and into the intake system, however, the A6 uses direct injection so gasoline does not flow through common carbon buildup areas. 

Possible trouble codes include: P0300P0301P0302P0303P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307, P0308

The solution is to remove the intake manifold and professionally clean the intake manifold, intake ports on the cylinder head, and the intake valves. This may need to be done in as few as 20,000 miles. 

Multi-Link Suspension Components May Wear Prematurely

It is now 4 years old but it still runs and looks like new. So far. the only issue was I needed to have a bulb replaced in one of my daytime running lights. It ended up only costing $35 and took 30 minutes...
I leased this car brand new at the end of January 2010. I immediatley started having problems. The 2nd day I had the car, the driver's side door would not close. The latch was not working. I had it towed to the dealership and they fixed it in about an hour. A month after I got it, the radio/computer system died. They had my car for a week and gave me a Nissan Altima to drive in the mean t...
