Default Advices with 2.5 V6 TDI

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to buy an A6(C5) with the 2.5 V6 TDI engine. Mostly I would like it with multironic/tipronic transmission without quattro.

I'm totaly new with the Audis, don't know what i need to watch, what are the most common problems with the A6(C5).

I heard about a lot of things, but i don't know what's the truth (when i bought my Ford Mondeo, many people told me that it isn't reliable, but i live with it without any particular problems).
I'm not believe everything what laic people say, but now, I'm completely confused (again).
Can you help me with some advices?

As some people told me that tiptronic isn't too reliable, it's apt to failure. About the multitronic I didn't heard anything.
Also i heard about that the camshafts in the TDI V6 engines are often becomes worn.

Thank you for the help in advance!

Kind Regards,

Keep the transmisson fluid serviced every 40k and it will be reliable. I Find the C5 A6's extremely reliable and long lasting. The TDI engines are always durable.
