2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)
Bought the 2006 A6 to replace a 1997 A6. A quantum leap in technical sophistication, comfort and fit. Seating very comfortable. Highway noise almost non-existent. Great acceleration and manuverability. Only two minor manufacturing flaws, neither performance related. The MMI is easy enough to use, but it is distracting. I live with a lot of wide open spaces, but with hundreds of satellite radio stations to choose from, you get distracted. The on- wheel controls do not remedy this because of a lag in activating the tuning dial - the lag means you have to look away from the road to see where you are. The doors are very heavy, which I equate with safe. I would happily buy this car again.
Handling and acceleration. Lack of road noise.
A way to make the on-wheel audio control usable without having to look away from the road. For example, if turning the dial brought up a voice telling the station "Sirius 74," etc. Of course, this could be turned off through the MMI if someone didn't want it.
