One Great Automobile!

2001 Audi A6 4.2 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


I didn't expect to love this car. After a 20
minute work out with a 540, I was still
pumped when I got to the Audi dealer. I
expected to confirm 540 supremacy - wrong!

The A6 shocked me - beautiful & polished;
solid feel from the door handle to the wheel;
powerful, lusty V8; smooth & confident pedal
response and a "one-ness" not found in the

I knew the quattro would have an advantage
in snow & ice, I didn't expect the significant
difference on wet, gravel, sandy roads, or
even uphill turning acceleration.

The 540 is an awesome car on a clear dry
day, but for an everyday sports sedan there
is no comparison.

Best Features

True sports car performance, every day manners, any day capability and room for friends. Oh, yes, the 4 year 50K worry free maintenance is nice, too.

Worst Features

ummm. . . more power, stiffer suspension, 1st gear down-shift capability --- my M5 dreams have been replaced by RS6 fantasies!
