Excellent vehicle

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A6 2.8 4dr Sedan

This is my second 1999 Audi A6. Both cars have proven to be very durable. Each car had the same minor issues, ie: broken mirror adjust switch, et cetera. (easy fixes) The build quality is top level, classic styling , decent power, and unstoppable in any weather. I have done most of the things people complain about in their reviews, but they don't seem to understand its routine maintenance, control arms, timing belts, and others. That being said, if you maintain a car like this properly, it will last a very long time. Owning a high end German car is a commitment (but ultimately very rewarding) , if your not willing to pay, get a generic Japanese luxury car, what a tool you'll look.

Bought it with 18000 on it,now it's 57000,no problem whatsoever .At first I thought I stepped "down" after driving '93 740I for awhile.Perfomance felt kinda "sluggish".Then I realised than if U leave transmission in the 4 position there is not much difference between either two.I switch in D only on freeway,as soon as speedo shows 80. Works for me.I do most of the cars out of holeshot.Torgue is not what the number says,it's how and when it delivered.




A6 sedan too many repairs

Very poor build quality for a $35,000 car. Does not compare in quality to my Acura 3.2 TL-S and lacks standard features found on comparable cars. Audi repairs: replace gas gauge, replace digital dash, replace door hinge, rebuild driver's seat, replace rear seat back latches, front grill inserts fell out. Overall bad value for the money. Audi is not a quality builder of cars.

Vehicle: 1999 Audi A6 2.8 4dr Sedan

I just purchased this vehicle with 39,900 miles on the clock and to date no problems. The 2 year/100,000 mile Audi Assured warranty sealed the deal for me. The car is extremely smooth and fast - although acceleration off the line is not quite what I expected. The dealership has been great so far. There were a few cosmetic features that they fixed for me and the car is immaculate. I would recommend this car to anyone providing they buy Audi assured.
