2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

In my opinion, the A6 is the new standard for mid-luxury sedans. Virtually all of its features - including handling, the console control system (MMI), and sleek looks - make driving this car a pure pleasure. Before buying, I compared the A6 to others in its price range, and it came out on top in almost all areas. And among the German-brand sedans, here's my humble opinion: If you want great performance, drive a BMW; if you want a luxurious feel, drive a Mercedes; if you want both, drive an Audi.


Best Features

Its time-proven quattro system handles extremely well, even in the worst of snowstorms. It's much roomier and comfortable than the pre-2005 A6 and its current competitors. I love the understated styling accented with bold details, such as 17-inch wheels and a gaping-jaw front grill.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage would help, but the A6 compares favorably in MPG with others in its price range, so this is a minor critique of an otherwise complete package of luxury, performance, and reliability.

2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Beautifully thought out car... was delivered to me in pristine condition, not a thing to criticize. Interior like a jet cockpit, driver fits in like a foot in a shoe. Everything automatic, voice recognition works flawlessly. Had to use the owner's manual extensively for first 2 weeks, but then everything fits into place. MMI really takes command of everything! Almost 2000 miles, not a thing to complain about: I just hope all the fancy electronics last as long as the rest of the car with no problems. Lots of electronic convenience features I never had before in my 1999 Caddy Concours. I'm sold on Audis if things keep up the way they are now!


Best Features

Folding outside mirrors for small garages, xenon headlamps, voice control of many accessories. Keyless locks and ignition are GREAT! 4WD should be a boon in NJ winters (to be determined). Fit and finish of the whole car are virtually flawless.


Worst Features

Big gripe? Gas pedal and brake are too close together for us wide-footed gorillas! Have to be careful each time I drive off, very easy to press both at once. Also, eliminate the disclaimer you must hit on the MMI each startup; it's a minor nuisance.

2006 Audi A6 4.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car is tight, responsive and handles well. However, the engine is a little loud. The drawback to this vehicle is the brakes which are much too touchy. Difficult to glide to a smooth stop. The controls (radio,t emp, phone, navigation) are very handy and easy to use.


Worst Features

Do something with the brakes and make it easier the front door opening higher (I'm 6'2").

2006 Audi A6 4.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is the greatest driving car we have ever owned. We love the look! We bought the RED S-Line V-8 and it goes and stops like hell. Although we only have 1500 miles on it we haven't had any problems. The interior and exterior are beautifully assembled and the quality of the materials is top notch. The MMI system is easy to use but sometimes distracting.


Best Features

V-8 power, beautiful looks, great seats, awesome quality and materials.


Worst Features

Soften the throttle and the brake pedal tip in just a bit, both are very touchy.
