We purchased a 2001 AUDI A6 QUATTRO in 2007. It was owned by a wealthy family that only used it in the summers when their cousins came to visit. It had 23,000 miles on it when we bought it. We immediately replaced the tires. The Audi dealer thought that they wore badly because the car sat without being driven so much of the time. Since then, we’ve replaced the tires THREE MORE TIMES! It eats tires! We have been willing to buy tires for it because it’s an awesome car in great shape and still has only 80,000 miles on it.
What the heck is the deal with the TIRES??? The Audi dealer here in Minneapolis stinks. They are so rude and unhelpful that we have stopped going there. One of their mechanics defected and is now working for a repair shop close to our home - a great plus for us. Still, neither he nor his mechanic pals can explain the poor tire performance.
