I've got drive a few cars such as a 2005 Caddy STS, a 2008 caddy CTS, a 2012 Buick LaCrosse, 2014 Caddy ATS, and a 2014 Caddy XTS. Honestly the Audi was the best and most fun car to drive. It handles better than all the rest and feels more like a GT car than a fat 4 door sedan. Although it's such a blast to drive the reliability is garbage. I had it for one month before it was having a misfire . After i got that fixed it ran good for a day now it won't stay running. Also the tubing inside is more brittle than glass. Also both cup holders have broke. I've already dropped about $1000 into it but im suspecting to be dropping more in the near future.

Ok, so i bought this car off of my inlaws, who bought it certified with 25k on the odo. After owning it myself for 3 yrs, it now has 155k on it. It runs smoothly and effortlessly on the freeway and in and out of traffic around town. A pleasure to drive in all types of weather. Sure-footed confidence in rain, snow & ice. I put 4 studded snow tires on it each winter and have no trouble climbing any WV mountains! Amazing. I repair most things that break myself to keep repairs down to a minimum. 1 yr ago the timing chain guide rail (plastic), broke and cost me a new head! I did most of the work myself with a friend. That one set me back $1,000. A fluke I suppose...gas mileage is so-so.

I think my father summed up this car perfectly when he said this car is great... up until 80k miles.
Yes, the car has exceptional awd power, fun in the winter along with luxury styling.
However the designing of this car is terrible and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
When my 2.7t's alternator went out it took an entire day to replace.
You have to take the front end off just to locate.
It's ridiculous!!! the 2.7t is designed to have an extended stay at the mechanic.
Over 100 sensors will cause the CEL to appear.
In summary, this car is like someone else's pet; its fun to play with, it will make laugh at times but i rather not want to keep it.
All 2001 Audis receive a new 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty and no-charge scheduled maintenance, a 12-year limited warranty against corrosion perforation, and 24-hour Roadside Assistance for four years. All A6s are now equipped with the high-tech Immobilizer III security system, side-curtain airbags, a 12-millimeter increase in the headrest height adjustment and an optional multifunction steering wheel.
