    Question Interpreting Service Record for 2014 A6

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Greetings,

    I have the CARFAX for an 2014 A6 Prestige 3.0 I'm considering purchasing. The CARFAX contains two computer reprogramming instances, three tire replacements and a full rotor & pad replacement within the 38K mile lease period. This seems excessive to me, and I'm thinking that perhaps the car was tuned and driven hard. Is this a safe assumption or is the aforementioned maintenance on a leased A6 3.0 typical? I'd like to send the CARFAX to anyone who is willing to interpret it and provide a professional opinion.

    Respectfully,

    Steve

    My relevant carfax data is pasted below. I'd think the 19" wheels account for the more frequent tire changes, and maybe a full brake replacement at 38K is reasonable. I'm concerned about the computer reprogramming and emissions failure; is that typical?
