2000 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #3

A6 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


I own an Audi A6, 2000. The car has been in the shop for over 18 months and 2 1/2 years for a re-accruing check engine light. For over 50,000 miles the car has been serviced by Audi and Audi only. Recently the car went out of warranty, however the check engine light is still not resolved and both flow and Audi have washed there hands of it. In-addition, I just recently lost my 4 and 5 gear and only after I took the car to a different dealer we found that flow Audi has been doing bad work on the car such as gluing parts back together (yes, gluing parts on a $55,000 car) and installing vacuum hoses up to the wrong parts. In-addition, they stripped out bolts and left them in place without fixing them, these bolts hold the engine together and in-place. (ask me about my timing belt issue, to long of a story to write on a web-page). The bottom line is Audi and flow Audi refuse to warranty the car any further, however the check engine light is still not fixed and its showing new codes. I have much more information... also, ask me about my A4 (better story) flow and Audi have cost me over $8,000 in the last two months and I have called everyone from the top of flow to the top of Audi. There is no customer service and no response. My new mechanic is will to talk as well... there are no lemon laws and there is no one to help the buyer. It seems like no-one will talk to me since im not buying a new car. I really need help and advice.

Vehicle can be driven as manual or automatic. When driven as an automatic vehicle slips out of gear. This is due to a wire harness gone bad. Dealer told this to consumer.
