As Safe As They Say
By rslikesaudi on
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.
Interior quality, smooth acceleration, quiet at high speeds on the interstate, spacious but nimble.
Looks great and people look at it all the time.
Did I mention Safe!
Many were made in later models like making LEDs replaceable without replacing the entire light unit.
More side bolstering on the front seats is needed due to the handling.
Full audio integration (aux/usb) should be available and standard in a car like this.
Everything else is great.
