2003 Audi A6 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Be prepared for an somewhat expensive maintenance bill. Other than that, the car has been a pleasure to drive thus far. Accelerates well, Handles the road like a dream. Digital instrumentation wears out over time as well as the buttons for stereo.

Review

This car handles well and slices through snow like a knife, all while looking surprisingly not too outdated, and has your expected luxury amenities like moonroof/Bose system/heated seats/power seats/ESC/AWD/good performance/elegant interior design, but it also has some surprising downsides, such as leather seats that crack and interior buttons/knobs that the black paint wears off of. Pretty disappointing for a luxury car but otherwise the interior is pretty well built. I would not recommend this car, at least from personal experience, because of its reliability issues. We bought our car second hand, granted, but it came with a fun oil consumption issue and heater did not work. Maybe ours was a lemon, but if you are buying one of these, watch out for this problem. Our old Buick has not exactly been babied and it still does not burn a drop, plus it is much older and has ironically run longer than the Audi. It looks like every other reviewer on here has had a good experience, but if you are buying one of these, buy one with a warranty or with its service history so you can tell whether the previous owner was meticulous in maintenance or not. If the previous owner didn't treat it well it will not treat you well. Don't take a chance and think "The previous owner probably treated their car well."

2003 Audi A6 3.0 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Not a big fan.
Too much car for the brakes, which I had a mechanic confirm this.
The interior is not the quality I thought Audi was capable of.
The seats are a leather set in vinyl.
The vinyl cracks.
As for any knobs or buttons you touch, the paint wears off.

No suggestions since they, thankfully, stopped making this model.

2003 Audi A6 2.7T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I've owned this car for about a year and a half now.
I've owned over 40 VW's and Audi's and I'm am speechless about this car.
Solid, smooth and as fast as the wind.
I bought it for myself, but it quickly became my wife's car.
Outside of routine oil changes I've replaced the serpentine belt and tensioner, the driver's lower aft control arm and the passengers side front drive axle.
I did the work myself and it was fairly cheap.
I do love this car.

Interior-wise, it is beautiful, comfortable.
It had left engine mount broken and center engine mount broken off.
One tube wasn't even connected.

Worst Features

annoying noise made inside vehicle whenever I go into reverse.
