Review of the 1998 Audi A6

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy inside. Impeccable road manners. Tastefully out fitted. Exceptionally comfortable. Optional all-wheel drive system.

  • Cons

    No manual transmission. V6 provides adequate power, but that's all.

  • What's New for 1998

    Stretch an A4 platform, add rounded styling with plenty of edges for character, toss in a sumptuously comfortable interior available in several "atmosphere" styles, blend it all with traditional Germanic handling and what do you get? The excellent new Audi A6 sedan. Our only quibble is with the taillights, which appear to have been inspired by the Chevrolet S-10 pickup. The wagon is carried over from 1997.

Still love it after 6

Vehicle: 1998 Audi A6 2.8 4dr Sedan

I've admired Audi vehicles since the 80's and fell in love with the '98 A6 styling, particularily the interior. I felt secure with the 4 yr 60k warranty but was still disappointed in the numerous trips back to the dealer for electrical (info panel on instrument display, window lift motors), interior hardware, and engine issues (fuel injectors, washer reservoir leaks, oil leak - valve cover and main engine seal). I also had to replace the front bumper cover (Audi reinbursed) due to it continuously catching on curbs. But the last two years have been relatively trouble free and it still is a joy to drive and my 15 year old son's friend think it's really cool. I do too!




Fun car

Very Nice Warking car




Beautiful but poor quality

Many issues with this car. Transmission problem ($6,000 repair!!) Low front end getting caught on parking barriers, Fuel injectors (Dealer said don't start the car, pull it out of garage and turn off - not good for the engine.) - Cost me almost 2000 to replace injectors and other assorted fuel and electronics to"fix" But it is beatiful to drive and look at 2.8 is adequate but not exciting. Audi should do something about the reliability.




I was dupped!
