2004 Audi A6 Sedan 2.7T S-Line quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have owned over 40 vehicles, mostly new German cars. This Audi 2.7T S- Line luxury sedan is just that, luxury. While most think of it as a sport sedan, the fact is its handling, braking power, and ride quality is much more "luxury" than sport. That's ok however, because Audi delivers on that. I am highly impressed with how quiet the interior is while driving at freeway speed. Also, the ride quality is exceptional. If you are looking for a sports sedan, purchase a BMW. If you are looking for comfort and rolling artwork down the road, this car is the one!


Favorite Features

Interior design. Quiet cabin. Smooth ride quality despite 18" wheels and low profile tires.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage for only a 2.7 is not that great (19mpg). Stereo system lacks low end punch. Wider tires would have given it better road grip.

2004 Audi A6 Sedan 2.7T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Subtle yet elegant. That's what I would say about this car. Nothing is overdone or classless. Audi has an incredible job of making this car appealing to those seeking both practical and luxurious features in a car. Flight controls are easy to get to, flat-dash experience doesn't alienate the passengers, incredible handling, very quiet and stable feel, and details in the rear of the car like wood trim, ashtray and cup-holders.


Favorite Features

Third-visor in the middle is a favorite. Rear window sunshades and the power rear sunshade is an awesome feature!!! In-dash 6-CD changer very easy to use and works great. And extra storage compartment in ALL of the doors are awesome. Everyone loves this.


Suggested Improvements

Better integration for phone and bluetooth (built in On-Star and phone options on car not very practical).

Review

I was looking for an all-wheel drive car and after taking the A6 for a test drive I liked it much better than the G35X Infiniti, the ride and interior were way better. The S-Line has the Bose, XM radio, heated front and rear seat, and handles great, and has great passing power. Gas mileage has been in about 25 mpg on highway.


Favorite Features

Bose sound system, and controls on steering wheel, 8 way adjustable power seat, fit and finish of the interior.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders in arm rest are really poor.

2004 Audi A6 Sedan 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I have been a past BMW 5 Series driver, but this Audi A6, blows the BMW out of the water in terms of sheer performance and reliability!! No question about it! The Audi A6 acceleration is exceptionally quick, quicker than the BMW. The interior is more upscale and the appointments are more lavish and luxurious. I love the fact that there is both a CD player and a cassette player. I still have motivational tapes. There are plenty of extras: side pockets and compartments and five solid cup holders! Quality workmanship and great body and interior integrity.


Favorite Features

Acceleration; stereo system; steering wheel stereo controls; moon roof and its controls; interior appointments; body style; leather quality; the ignition key and remote.


Suggested Improvements

None. Audi out did themselves!

Review

I've owned this car for almost 3 years now. I'm extremely impressed. Have driven friends' and relatives' BMWs. This car is better. The AWD is awesome, even when it's dry. What's even more impressive are the twin turbos. I live at high altitude. They are a must up here. Passes 99% of everything on the highway and still gets 28 mpg. Reliability has been great. Can't beat the looks either.


Favorite Features

AWD, Turbos, quiet, perfect balance between ride and cornering.


Suggested Improvements

Has developed a couple of minor rattles on bumps, but what car doesn't have them?
