Audi 3.2 Quattro well designed
By Arch57 on
2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)
This car was a replacement for my wife's 97 BMW 528i. This car is surprisingly quick and the transmission is the best "auto" I have ever had. The difference from her 4-speed BMW auto is amazing. This system always seems to know the right gear, downshifting as you brake so when you step on it you are in the correct gear. Handling is not on par with BMW. We could have opted for Sport suspension to fix that but got a great deal on a 2006 on the lot.
We had dealer install the Nav system and that is favorite so far. The ambient lighting and adaptive Xenon headlights are awesome. The engine will pull nicely around 3500 RPM and the tranny is responsive in Sport mode.
The handling grip is okay but the body rolls too much. The steering is a bit too light and should be firmed up more at high speeds.
