1998 Audi A6 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

I was initially impressed with how solid and tight this car was from day one. The styling of this car has endured the test of time and have always enjoyed and been a proud owner of this car. Parting with it has not been easy. The only negative has been the pickup on it this car which is a bit slow for my taste. The Bose sound system has been just fantastic and still is. I elected to get an option for anti-corrosion and there is not a bit of rust after suffering years of Michigan winters and salty Florida coastlines. The seats are still in great shape and extremely comfortable. The newer Audis are much stiffer now and not as comfortable. We have elected to shift to Lexus for styling, comfort and reliability.

Review

I owned this car for 2 years now and as I am speaking I don't know where it is now. It has been stolen 4 times now. If you live in a bad neighborhood, this is not the right car for you. Even a baby can steal this car. Other than that everything else is superb with this car. Fun to drive but starts shaking once you hit 80.


Best Features

Seat and wheel warmer for the winter days. I love the interior design.


Worst Features

Better security please..

Review

I own a 1998 Audi A6 Quattro wagon with 250,000 miles and I trust this car to take me anywhere I traded my much loved 98 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer for it I get great gas mileage and it's very comfortable I recently drove it from Mich to Va on a tank of gas I would recommend this car to anyone. I have never had to put this car in the shop.

Review

I can't believe the ratings are as high as they are. Way more repair issues than ANY car deserves. Now I have 120k mi and spends more time in shop than home! Expensive to get worked on. Many issues throughout life of car. Would never ever buy another Audi.


Worst Features

Build a reliable car!

Review

Okay, this was my dad's car. He bought it after I'd bought an A4. Two secrets: One, if you drive a lot of miles each year, they don't last. Two, find a good independent mechanic as soon as the warranty period is over. My A4 was costing me 2k every time I needed an oil change and I finally sold it. My dad's A6 did better, he doesn't drive much and took it to a local place to have work done. And I've lost count how many times he's lost the front lower spoiler on curb stops.


Best Features

Solid, no rust after 10 years (Chicago area), good in snow


Worst Features

Audi service reminds me of congress, they view their customers (citizens) as an unlimited ATM machine
