2008 Audi A6 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl CVT)


Review

From the outside to the inside, the A6 has beautiful features. The interior is plush and comfortable. The seat positions take you from a sports car feel to an executive luxury car. The MMI & sound system is fantastic, but I'm disappointed that the iPod integration is not on voice activation. Took a few days to master, but once understood, the MMI is easy to operate.


Favorite Features

The interior features are excellent. The best time to drive the car is at night when all the dash lights are on. Voice activation is great.


Suggested Improvements

Add voice activation to iPod integration. Radio should be on separate control so it doesn't turn on when activating other MMI features.

2008 Audi A6 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Love the exterior classy lines, interior is beautiful. The Bose sound system and iPod integration is fantastic. However the jury is still out on the handling. The car seem to have a lot of play in the steering and very poor weight distribution, also I find the car to have poor visibility. The Navigation System and Blue Tooth leaves a lot to be desired. (German car engineers should take note of Japanese technology). The S line looks great with its wider tires, but has very stiff seats. All in all the car feels very solid, and luxurious.


Favorite Features

Sensational looks inside and out, the amazing Bose sound system and iPod integration. Love the light accents in the cabin and outside front doors (must set these). Great acceleration in S gear. Audi A6 has a fabulous Solid feel.


Suggested Improvements

Navigation and Blue Tooth not up to par compared to Japanese technology. Weight distribution, visibility from outside mirrors (maybe change the size/shape of mirrors)

2008 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My wife and I spent over a month researching and test driving midsize luxury cars and when it was all done, the Audi A6 was the clear winner. About 6 weeks later we have no regrets. It's styling and build easily surpass its competitors. The MMI is not that difficult to learn. My wife, no techie, but has mastered it and is now a big fan of the system. It just takes a little patience to learn a new way of doing things. iPod interface is excellent and the NAV system is very well implemented. Lane assist is a great safety feature and works well. I much prefer the Audi to BMW, MB or Lexus. For us, the runner up was the Infinity M35.


Favorite Features

Quattro, MMI, great iPod interface, 2 screen NAV system, exterior and especially interior styling and finish, really quiet and smooth on highway, MPG is excellent with V6, lane assist, keyless entry, rearview camera and sensors, great trunk. lighting accents in cabin at night


Suggested Improvements

Front distance sensors should be added, automatic steering wheel should retract both up and in on exiting car (not just up). Would prefer cruise control stalk on right side of steering column (like in Lexus/Toyota cars) -- it's too close to turn signal in Audi.

2008 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

3rd Audi, and extremely happy with how the deign has matured. Smooth cornering, pick up, quiet cabin, butter start up process, intuitive controls.


Favorite Features

Look (Brilliant Black with Amaretto Brown), stereo sound, S-Line interior upgrade. Nice car, however Audi still has "annoying" small improvements, not big enough to stop me from buying, but from a practical perspective reaching to the glove compartment for CD/iPod connection is "stupid"!


Suggested Improvements

The maintenance program is pathetic, with Audi no longer picking up maintenance. Those of us who are used to this went from having a wonderful program, to virtually nothing (first 5000 mile service free)! Why isn't Home Link garage door opener standard? CD/iPod control still in glove compart.

Review

Reading good reviews by the editor as well as some owners, my daughter decided to give it a try...I wish she did not. The car has 10,500 miles on it. It is 1.5 years old. She came here to Milwaukee for a funeral. On the way from Chicago the yellow light came on. As soon as she got out of the highway the car stalled. She called the road assistance as well as the leasing company and they told her to try starting it. The car started. They told her that since this is just the yellow light drive it and bring it in when you are back. On the way to the funeral the car stalled again 3 times! She had to borrow mine, left the car parked on the street. This is the Audi/German luxury
