I bought my 1999 Audi A6 Avant at 90K and it needed to have the coolant fan, timing belt, ball bearing on front right axle, and some other stuff replaced. Since purchasing the car for $8,600, I have paid almost $4,000 in various repairs (about $500 was due to vandalism), but after all of that it drives like a charm. A smooth, quiet ride with a hefty get up and go for a ten year old car. I also live in icy Colorado, and this is the best winter car I have ever driven (My previously owned Jeep Cherokee and Ford Explorer pale in comparison). The interior could be better with some cheap plastic parts coming loose in the back and my trunk is now broken and won't stay open (the station wagon has a very heavy door on the back). All things considered, I would highly recommend if you can afford the repair costs and need a solid, bad weather car.
I have had this car for almost 3 1/2 years now. Bought it used at 119k miles and have since had a couple of the 100k problems expected with normal wear and tear. We have put a little over 60k miles on quattro since we adopted her and still love it. The interior allways impresses, and I would and have reccomended this car to a friend. Friend finally saw the light and hung up the subaru keys for and Audi. Got 10" of snow last year, and I was the only one in a small 30 unit condo community that made it out of the lot and into the roads. Great ride, excellent handling, and it is allways, perfect Audi weather. Don't get one if you like to use weather as an excuse to play hookey from work. These things will get you almost anywhere. Pavement or not! Now remember kids, if it isn't an Audi that you're driving, it should be. Keep that in mind the next time mother nature gets a little messy...
