Are there problems with the Audi A6 2.0 TDI Multitronic?

I was going to buy a 2008 Audi A6 2.0 TDI Multitronic, but I have been told they give a lot of turbo and flywheel trouble. It has 143,000km on the clock. What's your opinion?

I had a 2004 E-Class Mercedes-Benz in Elegance spec, powered by a petrol engine. The Audi I think gives me the same comfort as the E-Class, but is diesel, which will be much cheaper to run. It is also in a low tax band, but I have heard bad reports from an owner regarding flywheels and the turbo. Mind you, the Mercedes was not without problems like the SRS, which cost me money.

What should I look out for on a 2002 Audi A4?

Audi A4 2.5 quattro, 2002 model: anything I should look out for?

Very interested in buying one of these; it has 130,000 miles on the clock but is a local family car and well maintained in the local Volkswagen garage. I don't drink myself so I am willing to let the Audi do the drinking! And I know about tax and tyres etc but I love driving so I don't mind that, just wondering if there are any majorly costly pitfalls with these cars as the one I had nearly purchased last week blew its fan before I arrived to drive it and that's going to cost the guy €1,300 - so I had a lucky escape!

Cheers guys
