Review of the 2004 Audi A6

  • Solid performance and an elegant cabin design make the A6 a worthy competitor in the luxury sedan class, but BMW's 5 Series is more athletic and Mercedes carries more brand cachet, so it can't be called a class leader just yet.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Heavenly cabin furnishings, varied menu of engines, all-wheel-drive utility.

  • Cons

    Nonlinear steering, limited availability of manual transmission.

  • What's New for 2004

    A sport mode is added to the "multitronic" CVT, the center console's retractable cup holder is replaced by a power point and all quattro models now come standard with a sunroof.

Purchased used with 62k miles

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Bought this off the lot with 62k miles on it. This will be my daily driver. Purchased for it's all weather capability and european refinement. For a 10 year old car this one is in fairly good shape. Some gremlins do plague the car, phantom sunroof, power steering pump went in the first 20 days and driver side rear window does not work. But this is part and parcel for a 10 year old car. It is also a heavy drinker. 18 around town and 22-24 highway on premium gas. Beyond these nuances the car is capable, comfortable, solid on the road and for the money drives better than most newer cars and has more cargo space than most SUVs.




Worst car ever

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Vehicle started leaking oil and running rough at less than 12k. Dealer would not repair. Finaly after many complaints, dealer found coolant was leaking into the head gaskets. Short story is dealer has had the head gaskets out 3 separate times to 'resurface', car still leaking oil, repaired that several times. I was told the car is like a piece of cheese, when one hole is fixed, another opens up! That must be professional mechanic speak. Car has been in 29 times for serious repair in less than 2 years.




Best on market, get one

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Prior auto was 2001 A6 2.8 Front Track "Celebration Package" - It was entry level but got me in the door. Was impressed by warranty support. My lease was up and my 2004 Avant was sitting on the lot - it was meant to be. Quattro is AMAZING! I found myself in the left lane being tailgated by a trucker - Tiptronic - from 75 to 85 in nothing flat to get myself out of a bad situation. The Michelins and Quattro were like rails. Needless to say, the best safety feature is a car capable of getting you out of a bad situation before it occurs.

Looks great, drives even better!

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

This is my 3rd Audi A6, my first one was a 96 Avant, the 2nd one a 00 Sedan, I missed the cargospace, so i bought the 04 Avant. Drives great, handling is good. I think the looks are better than the BMW 5 series touring.

Vehicle: 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

My A6 Avant is a sporty and versatile alternative to an SUV, more fun to drive, gets better gas mileage, and is nicer looking. The car's build quality is evident with no sqeaks or rattles in spite of really rotten local roads. The electronic stabization program/yaw control and quattro kept me in control and safe while swerving into the Interstate median grass at 70 MPH when an 18 wheeler blew a tire directly in front of me. The A6 is a much better value for the dollar as compared to BMW 530 Wagon or MB E320 Wagon and gives nothing up to those two marques. The interior materials are superb. We could not be pleased more with our new A6 Avant!

Yes--it's easy. Tail lights are a lot easier than headlights but it's a simple task that will take no more ten minutes (probably less than 5). If I can do--you can do it. Ignore anyone who says take...
