2001 Audi A6 4.2 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)

Review

This is the last in a senies of Audi's I've owned since an A4 2.8 Q in 1998. Since then there's been an 2001 Audi TT Roadster, a 2001 S4 and a 2004 S4. While I love the comfort and the handling (I have the sports pkg on the A6 4.2), the reliability has been absymal (its been at the dealership every month this calendar year - in addition to regular maintenance). Its a love-hate. I love the speed, acceleration, handling, comfort, styling and with snow tires its GREAT on snow. But I can't afford the maintenance ($800 to replace the rear sunshade last month - ouch!)

Favorite Features

Handling, styling (inside & outside are gorgeous), acceleration, snow performance (on winter tires).

Suggested Improvements

I've bought my last Audi - they are just too unreliable. Maybe its all that electronic stuff. But I think they took their eye off the ball and went for quantity instead of quality.
