2003 Audi S6 Wagon Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I got this car because i am tired of SUV's slowness and bad handling. but i do need the utility part. 340hp make ur right foot feels good all the time, and the car's look will never get u the bad attention from cops. very well build, every little details that shows great craftmanship. enjoy drive it everyday, every where. and the good part is it does not bother me with TPMS, non-seat belt warning those extra annoying features. Well, Bad thing about this car is expensive to fix, timing belt cost more than $2500. Also all the audi/vw's cockpit control button's letter ez to wear off, make the car looks older. try to upgrade but audi do not offer V8 wagon no more, and Q7 just not as sharp!


Best Features

Bose Audio can be upgrade to RNS-E; Suede headliner; no annoying TPMS; no annoying seat belt warning sound.


Worst Features

European version front bumper looks much better. why there is no RS6 Avant here? even the new C6 platform. I try to upgrade this car but i can't find anything can fill its shoe. No more V8 Audi Avant... Bring the S6/RS6 Avant back to US, Please...

Review

I'm an Audi Collector. Which is why I bought this car. They are relatively rare for the US market. It's a powerful beast and holds the road. It snugs right into the fold of the B5 S4 & D2 S8. Although I have to say~ although similarly outfitted, the S8 holds its weight better than the S6, thus, it is faster around almost any track under various conditions. The offset to this is cargo space. The S6 has its place and I love it.


Best Features

Avant. Quattro. Suspension nice and tight but too hard.


Worst Features

Soft transmission. Double-pane security/acoustic glass. Smoother suspension.

Review

The car has great power and stability. Quattro handling is excellent in snow. The flexibility of the transmission from full auto, sport auto to pseudo manual with paddle shifters is great. I never think twice about power to maneuver. I look forward to driving the car every time. Also, the lower/wider stance keeps the car firmly gripping the road and gives it a great look. It is the perfect blend between utility and sport.


Best Features

Engine, handling and interior


Worst Features

The cabin is a little tight for drivers over 6'2". Fuel economy is also not great for a daily commuter.

Review

Recently purchased this car Audi CPO. Drove it 1000 mi home - It was like a vacation. This car is perfect. Everything from the dashboard lights to the advanced braking system work in perfect harmony. Some notes: leather seats without alcantara insets are simply TOO slippery for spirited driving. I spent a lot of my trip home planted to the door because I slipped out of my seat. (Learned to offset that a little by stomping on the dead pedal.) Probably wouldn't be an issue for a wider person. Yes, you get terrible mileage. It IS worth it. If you're doing mostly highway miles (like me), you're getting about 18 mpg, which isn't horrible. City? Hopefully you don't drive very many miles :)


Best Features

V8, suspension, quattro, interior, exterior. The best automatic transmission I've ever sampled, and I hate automatics. Sport automatic doesn't feel like an auto -- feels like I would drive it if it were a stick. Subtle performance styling. Turns heads without being flashy.


Worst Features

Nav system archaic, but I got lost once and it told me where to go. Wouldn't program in a long trip, but it gets you where you need to go. Don't like automatics, but this one is smart. VERY tricky to just crack the windows. Auto up & down ONLY-have to hold down button and release to stop window.

Review

bought the beautiful wagon for my wife's birthday after 6 volvos.J ust bought a 2nd S6 because its comfortable, classy, very fast, fun like Nascar, and now i can drive my own. just plane sweet meat; a treat for the feet and you won't get beat in the real racing seat. "Best car I have ever had" says the little woman. Very Reliable. Absolutely blow your kids hair and minds when you press the peddle on the way to school... but the cops think you're a little, albeit, cute wagon! Ha! Yeah, right! 340hp mama at 07:30 am don't need no starbucks to get a buzz.


Best Features

340 smooth hp, corners like a roller coaster attached to a track, and 4WD too. huge inside front and back. just plane sweet meat; a treat for the feet and you won't get beat in the real racing seat. "Best car I have ever had" says the little woman. Very Reliable.


Worst Features

Nav system is arcaine compared to some new systems. Would like true shifting paddles on wheels for this type of "race car" don't stop making them!!!! Audi never marketed the S6 Avant. Audi dealers drop their jaws inenvy; supply them with bracesplease, it's embarasing.
