Asked by Dec 02, 2015 at 10:39 PM about the 2006 Audi A6 3.2 Quattro

Question type: General

I'm going to buy an Audi A6 Wagon, and it currently has 131k miles. I want to
keep it for about four years and I live in a small town, so about 10-15k miles a
year. How long will it last? (Miles wise)

It comes down to maintenance. It could easily go another 100K, provided the first 100K were well maintained. Ask to see the maintenance records on the vehicle. A good mechanic can give it a once-over to look for signs of bad maintenance.

We just had it checked out today. There was nothing wrong with the car, it was well maintained. It was bought at auction and had no major signs of wear-and-tear. The mechanic also told us it was better than about 75% of the cars he inspects.

With proper maintenance I have seen some of these over 300K without anything major go wrong, but on the dark side those not maintained usually don't make much past150K. HTH

auditaylor- So, why are you buying this car? Is it because you're in a small town and don't have many choices? I would definitely recommend taking your time to have a mechanic check it out. If they won't let you do that , run away. And, 131,000 miles is an awful lot of miles even for a 2006, that is almost 15,000 per year. Can they provide the maintenance records, was it a one owner car? Have you seen the condition inside and out, is it immaculate? If you could find a car with 100,000 miles, I would say it would be better. And, it really depends on your tempermant for dealing with repairs, and after 150,000 or even a little sooner, you're going to have some things breaking down. I wouldn't purchase this, but, that's just me. Good luck.

auditaylor, sorry, just read that you had your mechanic check it out, but, and this is critical, can you obtain any service records? And, you know, it would have been better if the car was not sold at auction.

Flush fluids and filters you'll be alight.

Hmm, has this car been sitting around for a while not driven, if so, I would have a professional mechanic look over everything at this point...

I have a 2006 a6 avant and it's at 203,000 miles right now the only issues I have had are the airbag recall and the AC doesn't work. If you maintain it and do all of the proper maintenance I'm sure urs should last a long time!
