Value for Money
Got an A6 TDI 2.0 in 2014. Driven 35,000 KM on city roads only. Not buying this German engineering rubbish anymore.
The cars engine is wobbly as per Audi, the door locks need to be replaced due to a faulty auto lock system, has ignition troubles (how does that happen in a keyless entry push button car) and a few buttons on the car had to be fixed each year. After 4 years, the cost of servicing is 2 lacs each time, thats after spending 1 lac already earlier and going through a 4 years warranty, of which 2 years was any paid for as an additional 1 lac or so.
It is indeed comfortable and Audi is polite in general but now I wonder if I should have gone for the MERC, BMW or Jaguar besides even considering Volvo. I really don't expect this from supposedly a high engineering focused German made car. It actually makes me feel silly for not going for a Japanese or even a Korean car purely for the reliability.
Oh and the 5th tyre is not a regular pirelli one, just something to keep the car going for a few kms. Wow, to save 12,500 rs on a Tyre on a 45 lac car. So a puncture costs 13,000 or so.
For the features, I think now you can buy a 25-30 lac car for the same and perhaps quality and performance including a Superb (also by VW), Accord, Camry, Passat (VW), etc.
Bottomline is that each year something fails in the car and it's really not worth the hassle. It's a white elephant.Comfort, Ergonomic Design, HandlingBuild Quality, Mileage, Space
