So earlier today I introduced you to my new set of wheels, which I purchased to provide transportation for my daughter who has recently returned from college. Now, I like you enjoy fun cars, as well as those with a little gravitas. That’s why instead of taking the safe choice and buying an old Corolla or Camry beater, I instead bought a 1999 Audi A6 Avant Quattro.
If you’ve read my introduction you’ll know that the car is in excellent shape and sports less than 130K on the clock. You’ll also know that it has a number of minor problems that I’m in the process of correcting, but which don’t really affect the car’s drivability at the moment. At the moment is the key phrase there as a 17-year old car, especially one as complicated as an Audi A6 Quattro, can be a ticking time bomb of problems and eventual buyers remorse. The question for today then – and with a poll! – is, did I make a mistake buying an old Audi as a 20-something’s mode of transportation?
