Overview

"AVANT A6 QUATTRO 180 TDI 6-SPEED"

Exterior and Interior

Rock solid and well built. Exterior rear wheel arches prone to rust, but it's massive inside - like a Tardis! No rattles or squeaks, hard-wearing and comfortable to drive. Driver's door catch a bit of a problem but this is a common fault.

Performance and Economy

Will beat a Ford Mondeo ST 2.5 or 3.0 petrol. One guy got very upset thinking it was the 4.2 V8 but gutted to find a 2.5 TDI V6 - That blew him away (mine was chipped to 200BHP and direct K&N air filter sounds great!)

Like to Drive

Solid. Drove through the floods with water above the wheel arches for 3 miles and no problems, no leaks. Able to pull large stable across a muddy field where no other 4x4 could do the job. Massive amount of torque. <

Faults and Repairs

None - basic servicing. Very expensive cambelt on these are about £500. Rear wiper gave up the ghost - about £40 for a new one. Servicing every 10,000 miles to keep in tip-top condition.
