Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Audi A6 Allroad estate?
Our experience with the Audi A6 suggests the brakes and suspension are the main areas of trouble. Overall, though, Warranty Direct says problems on Audis are not too frequent. Plenty of other makers' cars are worse, although notably BMW and Mercedes are better.
Only one recall has affected the Allroad; on cars built before February 2001, there could be a problem with the driver's-side wiper. The only other word of caution is that, if the four-wheel-drive system does need work, it will require specialist attention, so make sure it's in good nick before you buy.
