What should I look for in a used Audi A6 estate?
Check the bodywork carefully for any scuffs and dents picked up in city centre car parks or on school runs. The A6 Avant is a long car, and even though it has sensors all round it’s worth looking carefully at the bodywork and also at the alloy wheels, making sure they haven't picked up kerb damage.
The number of reported faults on the A6 Avant is relatively low, although problems with the car’s infotainment system are a cause for concern, with phones not connecting and flickering screens being the main complaints. The latest software from Audi can cure some of these ills. Despite the A6 Avant’s reputation for having a great interior, there have been some issues with rattling parcel shelves and buzzing from interior trims.
In our most recent reliability survey, the A6 finished in fourth place in the luxury car class, with an overall score of 86%. Audi as a brand finished in 23rd place out of 37 manufacturers.
