Hi,

Here is what I know about the vehicle. They are ranked as an excellent choice in the used car market. And yes, they are reliable and durable.

The A6 is a comfortable well-designed car. It had sufficient power and handles extremely well for a sedan. The only negative I have ever noticed was the ride. It does have a stiff suspension which can cause a bumpy ride, but if you take that away, you also take the great handling away. So, the slightly bumpy ride is tolerable. LOL

Here is the thing. I am not there to inspect the vehicle for you. I have no idea of its condition, maintenance records, if it is accident-free, and so on. Because of that, I always recommend having a used vehicle inspected by a professional. It may cost you a small amount of money, but it can save you thousands.

One last thought. The price seems higher than I would expect with the mileage, but I also realize the market is out of control. However, I would suggest checking the vehicle's value via something like KBB. Com

Let me know if this helps or if you have questions.

Take care,

Joe

And please someone tell me is 50,000 to much for an Audi a6 2016. I feel like my brother got completely ripped off it doesn’t make sense to pay so much for a seven year old used car with 80,000 miles I believe please can someone help! He’s getting taken advantage of and I can’t just want to know what could be causing the battery to suddenly not work unless it’s jumped! And 50,000 is slot for s used car I believe.

Hi,

I can get you to the right place. You're almost there. LOL

I need you to copy and paste your question to a new post. The reason is that we try to keep the links specific to one topic. It is more helpful to others. I hope you understand.

Here is the link to start a new post:

The only thing I would like you to add is if it happens overnight, has the battery been load tested, and when it happens, does anything electrical work? Also, let me know if the alternator has been tested.

Take care and thanks for understanding.
