1,000 Miles of 2.7t Maintenance Costs

It’s been two months and 1,000 miles since I bought my 2000 Audi A6 2.7t with 107,000 miles.

What have I had to do?

1. That thing. See that red circle right there? That’s my ABS module that kindly decided to go out on me. It takes about an hour to remove yourself, which involves taking the driver side wheel off and accidentally emptying the contents of the washer reservoir onto your driveway. I sent it off to Module Master, in the middle of nowhere Idaho and a couple weeks later and I have ABS again. That’s a whopping $150. It’s a 14 year old twin turbo Audi with over 100,000 miles on it. It’s no Camry.


2. Coolant needed topping off. $30 or something at the Volkswagen dealer.

That’s all.

What do I need to do?

New wheels, tires, 02 sensors ($685) and an AC pressure switch ($275). Both things that need to be changed on pretty much any car. Thanks to BugEyedBeetle for those quotes!
