Default Looking to buy a 2012 a6 avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (204ps)

Hello,

I recently had a testdrive with a 2012 a6 avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (204ps) and it felt quite nice. Currently I drive a VW Golf 5 on benzine, but need more space for the kids.

The audi it self is nice and all with about 78.000km, not that bad I think.

I have a few questions, and I hope this is the right forum for it.

1. Will the emission scandal affect also this type of engine? Or is it only limited to the 2.0 tdi engines? I also read the 3.0 is a different engine and the problem should not be there.

2. The dealer told me they will take over any costs if any problems with the emission would come to light. I however would not like the car to be "downgraded" and end up with a slow car Is this perhaps just terrible timing to buy a diesel atm? Should we wait for a confirmation about the 3.0 TDI's?

3. I was first going for a 3.0 tdi multitronic, but I saw lots of people are having problem with this, and I personaly really dislike the "constant shifting" idea. Are the 3.0 TDI quattro engines more reliable?


I hope I can get some answers!

Thanks alot!
