2004 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned 4 A6's and find the new
3.0 to have lost substantial
refinement.The engine although adding
20 horsepower feels crude when compared
to the 2.8 and sounds as if it is
working too hard.Even the brushed
alluminum gear shift plate has been
reduced in size over the older models
and the fabric covering the gear shift
and the steering wheel is a very coarse
space age product I would expect to
find on a non luxury vehicle.The model
is showing its age. Time for a new one.
