2002 Audi S6 Wagon Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

2 years into ownership of this car, and I have NO regrets. I cannot say enough about the performance of the little V8, even at high altitude. (I bet this would be a beast at sea level.) I have 2 young kids (6 and 3), a wife, a big dog, a little dog, and stuff to haul back and forth to grandma's house 275 miles one way - this car handles it amazingly well!!! It is perfect in every way.


Best Features

Handling, braking, acceleration, and overall fit and comfort. Plus it is downright sexy.

Review

If you have children and passion for what you drive, this is the car for you. Those who cannot or will not work on your own vehicle, move along. Audi cars do require extra service attention, but the 2002 S6 Avant will reward you handsomely with luxury, performance, style, and comfort that no SUV or mini-van can or will.


Best Features

Sport Mode, quattro, and that healthy V8 growl. 340hp, AWD, and 19mpg mixed, not bad at all.


Worst Features

6-speed manual transmission

Review

A sports car with lots of room! I talked the wife into getting it because of its inherent virtues of safety, stability, reliability, versatility, and luxury. I just wanted something fun to drive that would fit a family. You won't win many off the line against some of today's high performance vehicles, but the power delivery seems endless once you get past 60. I might as well pay in advance for speeding tickets. Maintenance/gas ain't cheap! 8 quarts of synthetic oil/$40 filter 20+gal of premium (I get 19-20 combined MPG, when I'm easy on it). Big vented brakes = big $$. Trust me - it is all worth the experience! So far it has proven to be very solid and reliable.


Best Features

I love the snarl of the 40 vlv 4.2L V8, handling of quattro AWD, Recaro buckets, alcantara headliner, real wood/metal trim, Parktronic, bright finish accents, decent Bose stereo (engine sounds better), terrific suspension and brakes, the thumbs up you get on the hwy from other Audi enthusiasts, etc.


Worst Features

Hi beam HID is great, but lo beam HID is poor - euro spec HIDs better. 1 decent cupholder would be nice, but would detract from the superb interior layout. Stupid placement for antenna (between roof rails)!!

2002 Audi S6 Wagon Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This drives like a Porsche, but hauls Christmas trees, and all sorts of gear. Sexier than any minivan or SUV, but not noticed by speed cops. Great ski vehicle.


Best Features

Great engine. Perfect blend of comfort and performance. Solar-sunroof-powered ventilation in summer package.


Worst Features

Needs rain sensing wipers. I can live with the gas guzzling, but the tank is too small (300 miles between fillups). Daytime running light option or auto headlights.

Review

The biggest 'sleeper' on the road. no one knows what they are dealing with until after the S6 taillights disappear from view. Take this wagon seriously.


Best Features

340 hp sledgehammer 4.2 v8 sport mode transmission setting.


Worst Features

Offer a manual.
