Review of the 2000 Audi A6

  • Refined and luxurious, the all-weather A6 family offers a satisfying alternative to the BMW 5 Series or Mercedes E-Class -- the 2.7T is our favorite.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    New selection of engines, well-appointed interior, all-wheel-drive stability.

  • Cons

    Non-linear steering, questionable exterior styling, 4.2 model's molded rear seat.

  • What's New for 2000

    There are two new models joining the A6 2.8 and A6 2.8 Avant. The first is the A6 2.7T powered by a turbocharged V6 engine. The second model is the A6 4.2 powered by a virile V8.

Don't buy a 2000 a6q

Vehicle: 2000 Audi A6 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

Beautiful to look at. Metallic tan w/ a tan inside brown dash. I still have my 1996 A6 w/ 250,000 miles on it as we speak I have to drive the 96 because the 2000 is in the shop. Since owning the car I've replaced both cat converters w/ O2 sensors, timing belt water pump , all ball joints and tie rods, a number of blown cooling hoses (leaving me stranded) including 1 that was inside the engine $$$$. Spent over $2,000 on a oil leak (still leaks) was told that it's natural for that to happen, sensors etc. My 96 was sooo flawless and fun to drive much more powerful and comfortable. THE ABSOLUTE BEST CAR I'VE EVER OWNED!!!. I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET A NEWER ONE AND NOW I'LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER AUDI




Love to drive my a6

Vehicle: 2000 Audi A6 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

Purchased my A6 at 46K and it now has 112K miles. Everyone time I get in to drive it feels like a brand new car. The worse the weather the better it feels to drive. I truly love this car. Had only one big problem when interior flooded when cowl drain plugged. Great mileage as it averages 22 mpg when driven daily with AWD. Very well engineered.

I love this car!!!

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Audi A6 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

I am not a huge car buff and usually can't tell the difference from one to the next. The Audi A6 caught my eye with its sleek lines -- after taking it for a test drive, I was sold. The steering and handling is extremely tight, so you feel like you are really driving. It was amazing in the snow as well. I almost felt like I was driving on dry pavement even though there was 5 inches of snow on the road. When I took the car into my mechanic, he found it in excellent shape and was very pleased at the purchase (I was a regular with my old Lexus). Overall, I highly recommend this car -- a beauty that is fun to drive!




Great car... not with the

Vehicle: 2000 Audi A6 2.8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD

The car itself is decent, the Quattro does an excellent job in a Maine winter, but the quality from there on out drops. The rear cupholders both broke in December 02. We have yet to hear back from the dealer who is 'ordering the parts'. Vehicle is safe, was in a minor accident and we did not feel anything, but we sent it to the dealership, and they fixed the rear bumper... with a dent in the front bumper. Way to go for quality control. Car has had many service problems, and dealer's service has been unsatisfactory
