I've been looking for a manual B6 avant for a while...there aren't any for sale at the moment. As a plan B, I'm starting to consider an auto...I just want to commute with the car so it's not the end of the world. The main thing putting me off the auto is the terrible reputation of the CVT. With B6's getting older, it's harder to find them with good service histories and that's not great with the CVT issues.
I know the quattro equipped cars have a different transmission than the 2wd cars. My research leads me to believe that their reliability is better. That said, I can't really find much about what's different between the 2wd and quattro transmissions. Does anyone have any experience with these? Can anyone speak to their reliability? Any input would be great...thanks!
