    $835 for 72 months doesn't sound too bad on that deal.

    You're probably financing around 48 grand with taxes. If you're $2500 upside down and putting no money down, you're buying that car for 6-7,000 below MSRP. Audi had $4500 dealer cash on 2005 3.2 models

    thanks for the replies. i think rjlaero is right 72 mo is just too long. plus i dont get to pick the color combo i want etc.
    now i switched gears and am looking into a lease. same trade in etc. dealer says he has good color combo A6 2006 loaded with everything, but he is asking 3000 down and 42 mo @ 853 15k miles

    i want to go ahead because i am getting tired of going back and forth. i need to just get it over with. the little voice though is telling me that he raking me over the table.

    I don't think he's raking you too bad.

    Whenever you go from 10 to 15k miles on a lease, your payment will jump 75-80 bucks a month. Also, you're rolling in 2500 negative on a lease, so there's another 60 bucks on a 42 mo lease right there. Your paying $140 month just to get out of your old car and get more lease miles.

    The web special was a base 46k car for 519/mo 24 months 10k year miles. About $4000 down.

    The 2006 models are also more expensive than the 05's. So if you pick out a premium package car w/ a few options, you're already near 50 grand.

    Yes, and tell your salesperson to drop me a few bucks for helping close the deal!

    Enjoy your new A6 and please tell us what you got.

    A reputable dealership in Buffalo NY offered to sell me a 2000 A6 2.7T for 15000 before tax. The car has 64,000 miles on it. They claimed to have had an oil leak fixed (2400$) at the Audi dealership prior to selling me the car. And they told me the brakes may need to be replaced soon although they pass New York State inspection for now. I had the car evaluated by my own mechanic (they werent expecting this), and he told me 1) the turbos were still covered in oil (actively leaking vs just not cleaned off), 2) front brakes need to be replaced, 3) check engine light just came on. If the dealership addresses all these problems do you suppose its a good deal. Or does it sound like the car is going to cause more trouble.
    I loved driving the A6 and although I can get a newer A4 for the same price, its just not quite the same feeling......
    Comments, Suggestions..?

    Leaking turbos? I'm not sure what that means...

    But, I get the feeling that may be the most expensive $15K car you'll ever own..

    I drive the same 2000 A6 2.7T and if the Buffalo, N.Y. dealership will fix the brakes, the check engine light, and replace the turbos (they have to be replaced in pairs), with 64,000 miles, $15,000 is a pretty good price.

    I wouldn't touch the car if they refuse to replace the turbos. This repair alone could cost $5,000 plus. Once they start leaking oil, replacement is the only option.

    I am looking at a 2006 Audi A6....in my opinion the numbers they have given me are completely ridicuous.

    Invoice on the car is $51,340....24 month lease...12K miles per year....$5,000 down and monthly payment of $670.

    Know this is not a good deal but not sure what a good deal is given these parameters....any help would be appreciated.
  • Options
    rjlaerorjlaero Member Posts: 659
    Those numbers are not ridiculous.

    Audi has a base $46,140 A6 3.2 Quattro car on the website @ $519 mo plus tax for a 24 mo lease w/10k year miles. Total out of pocket was about $3700. And the dealer has to make a $1700 discount off sticker to meet those numbers.

    If your A6 has an Invoice of 51,340, the MSRP is probably about $54,000 or so. That's $7-8,000 more car and you're going from 10 to 12k miles on your lease.

    Also, what is sales tax in your state? That 519 number is pre tax, and can easily got to $550 depending on where you live. Is that $670 number out the door?

    You need to talk to Mark Cincinnati, I believe he is driving the same model Audi for $586.00/month including tax on a 36 month lease with only a plate transfer fee for a downpayment.

    rjlaerorjlaero Member Posts: 659
    You also have to consider that Audi has had up to $1500 lease cash at times for previous Audi customers , so your deal may not be the same as a current Audi owner.
  • Options
    sobrokenowsobrokenow Member Posts: 3
    Thanks for the advice. The dealership has addressed the check engine light and is putting in new brakes. They said they sent the car to the Audi dealership to have the oil leak addressed and they repaired/replaced the cam seals. I wonder if any other audi owners have had problems with this, and if its likely to recur.......
    I hope Im not making a mistake here, but I plan to purchase an extended warranty (2000$ for 3 yrs, unlim miles) and hope for the best........

    Saw the last 05' A6 in the lot with Premium, Convenient, Sport, navigation, and a couple of other options for a MSRP 50.7K. The car is new and never titled but has 1,500 miles in it by demo.
    Dealer would agree to let it go at 41K ( 44K including tax and TTL). How good is this deal?
    Please comment if you bought or dealed with a new 05' A6 lately.

    rjlaerorjlaero Member Posts: 659
    There's $4500 cash back on 05 3.2 models. You're getting almost $10,000 of sticker on a car with 1500 miles on it. I'd say that's a pretty good deal and I'd jump on it if you're OK with the color and such. You've still got a ton of warranty and free maintenance left with that low of a mileage, and it's never been titled. There's about $3500 of dealer profit in that car from invoice to MSRP, so he's giving you the holdback and I doubt the dealer is making any money on that car. I susspect they're just trying to clear it off the lot and cut it loose.

    I had the cam seals/valve gaskets replaced at 80,000 miles. Make sure they do the valve cover gaskets at the same time. The labor is huge to do these gaskets at a later date. If one is leaking, they are both leaking.

    I paid $2300 for a 3 year extended service plan, so if the exclusion list is short, yours is in the ballpark and a wise investment for this car.

    Hi all,

    Has anyone had any success in having their dealers waive the excess mileage charge when leasing a new Audi? My current lease is up next month and I will be 4000 miles over my limit. That equates to a $1000 charge that I am looking at. I would like to get the dealer to agree to waive the fee during our negotiations, but don't know if it's posible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have a 2003 Audi A6 2.7. Had many minor problems when first purchased, but nothing much lately. 56k miles. Last time in dealer, he indicated that it wouldn't be too long before I started having big repair bills. Anyone have any advice on whether this is true, or is he trying to get me to trade?

    You should probably ask that question in our general Audi A6 forum....

    But, in my opinion... It is true.. and... he is trying to get you to trade.. ;)

    You must remember that you are driving one of the most sophisticated and complicated vehicles on the road, considering the twin turbo system, 4-wheel drive, and tiptronic transmission.Audi is an engineering company and very few cars on the road have as much technology built in as yours.

    I drive the same A6 2.7T for the last 6 years and my driving impression would include some sort of extended service plan or an Audi that was paid for so I could save the payment money every month and "self-insure" myself against repair bills.

    I just renewed my extended warranty through Continental Insurance, 3 years/36000 miles at a cost of $1800.00. I have 87000 miles and plan on keeping the car. The plan can be transfered for $50.00 if the car is sold. This isn't a bumper to bumper warranty but does cover the turbos, most engine parts, and the transmission.

    It may be less expensive to get the extended service plan than to purchase or lease a new car at this point, of course, depending how "upside down" you are on your present Audi. I still owe about $19,000 on mine, and know I couldn't sell it for that, but the payment is currently $299/mo., the car is in good condition, and that is affordable.

    I purchased a Audi 2006 3.2 with Prem, Tech, Sunroof, 18", premium leather(Ammaretto), and cold weather package. I paid $180 over invoice. I also got the tire insurance for $700 which covers any tire replacement, rim, and labor costs. They also covered my last lease payment on my BMW ($540).

    What, they didn't pay some of your home mortgage? What a rip off!

    Honestly, I think that's a great deal. They lost money by your numbers...$180 over invoice and they paid your $540 last least payment... I wonder what got into them?

    I noticed you paid $700 for the tire coverage. I finalized a deal Saturday at a dealership in PA. The cost for this coverage was $296 plus tx. The dealer stated the cost us to be a lot more but they have changed the way the price is determined. The price is now an average of the national cost. Prior the cost was based on location. Areas more prone to have street issues such as potholes, etc., paid more. Area less prone paid less.

    I am posting this in several places. I own a 2002 Mercedes E-320 station wagon AWD It has been a great automobile-one problem-it did burn out a lot of light bulbs. Mercedes replaced all of them within the warranty period. I am looking to replace it. One of the automobiles I am looking at is an AUDI wagon AWD. I live in the Pittsburgh, Penna. area 9 months of the year.--3 months in central Florida. I will by either place. Any good dealers who will deal in either area I would be interested. Thanks
