2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Panache, practicality (roomy back seat) and phantastically phast -- what more could one want? Better MPG, maybe, but comparable cars are just as bad (e.g. E55 AMG) -- and they don't have or offer All Wheel Drive. I've never driven this much in one year (24K mi), which says a lot. Spent time in shop after 10K mi but turns out that was due to poor communication at Audi rather than parts availability, which was blamed at the time. Also have 2000 Audi S4 & need to sell one of them. Love the S4 too; more nimble and, with a chip, almost as fast. But even tho selling the RS6 would bring $40+K more, I have no such plans. RS6 pleases eyes, ears, even nose!


Favorite Features

Speed, sound (standard exhaust), comfort, traction; can enter merging traffic like no other sedan I've driven, including Merdeces-Benz E55 AMG (which is a little faster but jerky at times, due to no AWD).


Suggested Improvements

Ride could be smoother; suggest adjustable levels of stiffness like E55 AMG. Seats are good but Europe got Recaros, which probably are better. Hope next generation gets better MPG, maybe using something similar to new Chrysler 300/Dodge Magnum (runs on 4 cylinders when cruising)

2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My S8 was good, but the RS6 is spectacular. The only "con" is the mediocre interior detail. NAV is terrible system requires new CD halfway from Philly to NY. Transmission and most everything is last years. No map screen. The performance is wonderful. With all the disappointment with the "old" equipment, I bought two.


Favorite Features

Smooth effortless acceleration and stable handling even driving hard in the turns. Comfortable, verisitile, stable, Quattro attractive.


Suggested Improvements

Finish the car with the best features from the A8 and other lines. The performace reflects the talent and effort of the Audi engineering team. The finish and features were ignored. Great performance alone id not enough.

2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A superb handling car with explosive acceleration, good ergonomics, excellent comfort. Holds four people comfortably, but has a small trunk space. Excellent audio system and GPS navigation system (although no map). The all-wheel drive adds greatly to the handling in wet/snowy weather. The brakes are superb.


Favorite Features

Handling, brakes and speed.


Suggested Improvements

Turn signal indicator is too close to the steering column.

2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I'm very happy with this vehicle. I can only compare it to my experience driving an imitation NASCAR vehicle at Richard Petty's experience. It delivers on everything I ask of it. The only issue I have is with the Darn OnStar system.


Favorite Features

The sound enhancing exhausts make this thing sound like the beast that it is, otherwise it behaves in a very subtle manner.


Suggested Improvements

I'd love to have some more modern features like another speed on the tranny, Color LCD Nav System and we have to have Bluetooth interfacing to the telematics, putting MP3 playback capability on the CD-Changer would be a plus too.
