    Purchasing New 2016 A6 Tdi. What do you think

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I previously owned two Audi’s (2003 A4 and 2005 a6). Both bought used. I want to get back into a A6. I have a deal on the table and want to know what you guys think as I have been away from Audi for about 5 years. Details are a 2016 a6 prestige s-line mythos Black with black optics 20” package. 68900 sticker. We are at 46800 for a purchase price. What do you guys think about Audicare and what should I look for buying a 3 year old “new” vehicle?
    Thanks in advance

    How many miles on the clock?

    Is it a 2015 build?

    Warranty status? It has very low miles so thats a positive. But you are almost at the end of warranty. Also, what other packages does it have?

    If it's a brand new vehicle warranty starts first date of ownership, not manufactured date.

    I'm assuming this is one that was parked until the TDI mend was complete.

    Yeah of course but looks like it was purchased/leased to begin with since it has 3800mi. And then this TDI fiasco happened so they bought the car back.

    I missed that. Don't TDI buy backs have some kind of extended warranty from Audi?

    Sure it was not a Demo car? I don't believe its legal to buy back a lease then sell as new. If it was a mgr demo, then it stays new until sold. Once the car is titled or Manufactures Statement of Origin (MSO) is transferred, its no longer a new car. Unless from where you are it is.
    The price is a good deal. I have a feeling it was not leased or purchased to someone else, thus sold as new. No different if I get rid of a car I buy, hated it after 200 mi and trade it. Can't be sold as new.

    It is a 2016 TDI. Most of them got caught in Dieselgate and were subject to a no sale order until 2018. They sat on dealer lots for 2 years. They were not used as demo cars because they could not be sold. Most of them sat parked or were used by dealerships to run errands.

    As I said, many dealers were using them to run errands for the two years. They were not registered. The EPA wouldn’t allow them to be registered as a result of the No Sale Order.

    I see what you mean. A Demo to me is a car assigned to a Mgr or higher ups. They use it exclusively. Not for test drives.
