2002 Audi S6 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 5A)
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.
Handling, braking, acceleration, and overall fit and comfort. Plus it is downright sexy.
