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


Review

What a shame; a great concept spoiled by poor execution. My initial car had a driveline shake that the dealer was unable to correct despite four visits within the first month. A second car was ordered and had the same problem. Audi of America called after the sale but had no comment or interest in finding the fix.


Best Features

Concept, overall performance, stealth appearance.


Worst Features

Driveline shake. Noisy front seats. Worthless cupholders. Poor service.

Review

Audi's "Never follow" ad campain encapsulates the S6 perfectly in all aspects. The only way to discribe this car is :"it's stiff,responsive, focused & fast". The car is a decathlete in a grey flannel suit; pubesent racers will have to look elsewhere for presumptuous wings and other mutant aero appendages. With 36.4 cubic feet of luggage space and roomy interior for four adults, the S6 is unmatched in it's versatilaty and luxurious comfort. All in all this rocket lux wagon has an equal level of sports performance that will rival any BMW M or AMG sports sedan. Thanks to Len Hunt ,for giving Audi new DNA .


Best Features

1)The dynamic shift program 2)The unbelivable forward thrust during passing 3)The build quality of Audi


Worst Features

1)The cupholders are practicly useless and need to be improved. 2)The foglights need to be redesigned.

Review

This is my second try for Audi after Audi 80. And I would say nothing better than this car has ever been made, even stupid-bulky Mercedes couldn't be even close by to this vehicle, I have a friend of mine who ownes S500, he really envy me. :))) although my Audi slightly smaller than his potato carrier.


Best Features

Interior quality, s-mode driving, ski sock in the rear seats are brilliant idea, painting of Audi is just the best among all upscale cars, it doesn't know at all what is corrosion is, even in very salted conditions.


Worst Features

automatic headlights on/off, cupholders are only for a cup of espresso, nothing bigger could fit in it.

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


Review

Probably the ultimate compromise between sport and utility -- as much room as an SUV, way more fun to drive, and any more performance would be too much for North America.


Best Features

Engine/transmission, suspension/handling, almost all the toys.


Worst Features

Paddle shifters for tiptronic, auto lights and rain-sensing wipers
