So I'm buying my first car and the Audi a4 v6 quattro is in my price range. How is the reliability on this car?


I am dealing with apple autocorrect. Excuse my spelling/random words.

German rides are pretty darn good overall, but they are expensive to maintain and repair.

Be sure to check the timing belt. Check mileage and service interval, as it is a pricey one.

And definitely stay up on the maintenance.

Outside of that, they're great cars.

Don't buy the 3.0 V6, don't buy the tiptronic. A new wiper transmission is in your future.

I currently have an A6 2.7T, a Q7 and a S6. They are excellent cars if maintained properly. When they do fail they can be very expensive to repair. I have worked on European imports for 20+ years and now own my own import repair shop. As Unbalanced said, do the timing belt if there is no record of it being done.
