Audi A6 2001 model. What options other than salvage

Asked by Sep 06, 2015 at 10:56 PM about the 2001 Audi A6 2.7T quattro Sedan AWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hello.

I bought this Audi A6 2001 model about 3 years back, and it did serve me
well. However, Feb this year I bought another car an since then, this Audi
was unused. I tried selling it earlier, but didn't get the money I expected for
it. Now, the car has a few problems, the brake rotors aren't smooth
anymore, there is a minor leak in the engine, the battery is dead, also, a
few random mini things. The cost of getting the car back to a good shape
appears to be around 1000 bucks, and the KBB value of this car is around
2200. I really don't think it is worth putting in the money as I will not be
driving the car, and what if I am not able to sell it for even 1500 after
spending all the money. Salvage people are paying around 125 for this car,
that I dont wanna do. Please suggest what I should do.

You can try donating it to a charity. Red Cross, Goodwill, and The Salvation Army all take vehicle donations. I'm sure there are others as well. You may even be able to get an income tax deduction for your gift to the charity. HTH. -Jim

omg all those A6s should be scrapped- sell it for $1000 or whatever you can get, and understand that you are passing along a living/dying curse-

Man give it away.i had alot of problems with that car.
