Unreliable Driving Machine

2011 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)
Review
I have owned 5 Audis over 15 years. This A6 will be the last one. In less than 7000 miles it has been in for repairs 6 times, including 3 times for check engine light, 1x for passenger air bag off, 1x for moldings falling off the back doors, etc. Dealer has been helpful and supportive, unlike Audi USA who I find to be inaccessible and uncooperative. When the car is not at the dealer being repaired it runs great as Audis do. Watch out though for low profile tires - a silly design feature that leads to frequent blowouts when you hit one of the many potholes we have in New England. Gas mileage of 21/30 is accurate. You might even do a little better.
Favorite Features
Tight handling, quiet, excellent acceleration with turbo charged engine, logical dashboard once you are used to it.
Suggested Improvements
Low profile tries are a silly design feature leading to blowouts. Over-engineered car requiring frequent maintenance. CD player has issues I never had on 4 previous Audis. HD radio works poorly on AM stations. Manual needs updating as some information (such as lane assist on/off switch) is not accurate. Radio station tuner is electronic - very cumbersome and distarcting. Should be dial.

Similar experience for me. Had to replace tires 4 times, once for flat tire and 3 for side wall bubble after hitting small potholes. Also had to take it in for 3 engine services within a 30 day period. Car drives beautifully but worry about tires dampen enjoyment. Would keep this car once lease is up if not for the reliability issues.
