Review of the 2005 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, crisp handling, all-wheel-drive utility, strong six- and eight-cylinder power plants.

  • Cons

    Steering not as sharp as a BMW's, no manual transmission available.

  • What's New for 2005

    The A6 gets a top-to-bottom redesign for 2005.

2005 audi a6 c6 3.2q

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A6 3.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 6A)

Purchased used 2010 with 47,000 miles and now has about 67,000 a year later. Beautiful car both inside and out, and you find that new models (2010+) have copied the styling cues (Jaguar XF, Chevy Malibu, Hyundai Sonata and must recently the Volvo S60). That says much for the overall exterior design and impact. The interior is fantastic, as well as the engine/drivetrain. I would buy another used, especially if Certified Pre-Owned, but the new prices are rediculous.




As safe as they say

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A6 3.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 6A)

I bought a 2005 A6 in 2007, had it 2.5 years, then was rear-ended on a stopped off-ramp by another driver who was going over 60 miles per hour. A 4000 lb car was spun 180 degrees, slid across 2 lanes, down a hill, and over a concrete drain. The car was totaled but I walked away. All 4 doors on the car still worked although the rears were no longer aligned. The car only had minor problems up until it was killed. One LED that went out intermittently. Service, brakes, tires, were about as usual on a euro sedan. Definitely a high speed cruiser but can handle turns very well. Interior quality so much better than BMW. It's a great car. I'm buying another, probably an 07 or 08.

Love this car

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A6 3.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 6A)

I have owned my A6 for 5.5 years and still enjoy it every time I get behind the wheel. Handles great and fun to drive. The overall quality of the car is very nice. My biggest complaint is the low profile tires. I have spent close to $5,000 on tires since I owned the car. They are good for about 25k miles and the pinch easily. I will admit Most of the issues were caused by me (first time owner of low profiles). I love the way the car handles but not sure my next car will include low profiles.

Excellent first car

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A6 3.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 6A)

After reading reviews about the A6 having a lot of electrical problems with the MMI system I was very hesitant to buy. However, this was not the case. The car handles unbelievably around corners and has great gas mileage.(I get around 250 mi-300 mi city and close to 400 on highway. Overall the car is stunning both inside and out and I would highly recommend this car. The only downside with this car is that repairs are expensive and most of the time the part must be directly ordered through Germany, so it may take longer than anticipated for your car to be fixed.




Late starting

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A6 3.2 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 6A)

I have the same problem the first gentleman that wrote his report on the first page. The car starts but sometimes 1/10 starts it takes roughly 4 seconds. The dealer has changed the fuel pump cleaned the carburetors and still has that exact problem. They then told me that fuel pump was 25 percent efficient that's why it was replaced. They then took it again and check it online with Germany and said intake manifold. The part was replaced but the problem is still there.
