2001 Audi A6 2.8 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this Audi A6 quattro with 2.8 V6 after reading a lot of reviews about this car. There were too many problems reported with 2.7T, so kept away from that. This 2.8 V6 can surely use more power, especially at low speeds. However, if you are little patient, the speed builds effortlessly from about 40-50 MPH. The ride quality is awesome. Little stiff for city driving, however the solid grip it has on the road makes for it. The car is built like a tank and you feel it at high speeds. The car gets more and more stable with higher speed. This is a huge difference in feeling after coming from cars like toyota camry and highlander. I love the interior and exterior looks and quality of material.
Bose sound system is good. The climate controls and memory seats are nice. The refinement of the engine and its performance at high RPM is simply awesome. It has a subdued luxury feeling associated with it and I just love it. The exterior is truly extraordinary. The trunk space is huge.
The engine power at low speeds needs definite improvement. It can use larger wheels and tires for better handling and smooth ride.
