Well me and the OH have found ourselves looking at Petrol B6 A4 Avants but I can't help but stick my nose in here as well as spotting a C5 A6 2.5 TDI Avant Quattro I've also spotted a C6 which is just within budget. Now I am always loath to buy the cheapest on the market but I've done a bit of googling and haven't found much that seems to go wrong with these?
Can anyone shed any light on potential issues with these and what else to look for when viewing C6 Avants?
I am looking for a buyers guide/things to look out for list, from googling around I have found the following trouble points (along with general stuff you look at when buying a used motor)
1. Timing chain rattle (can be indicated by slow starting)
2. Crank damper
3. Injector failure
Are there any issues with DMF failure etc? I read that the C6 is not Haldex but proper mechanical 4wd so should be pretty bullet proof.
The car I am looking at is a late 2006 car with the 233bhp engine and manual transmission.
Can anyone tell me specific points on these cars to look into?
