2004 Audi A6 Sedan 2.7T S-Line quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

After owning an E55 AMG this Audi seems a bit slow by comparison. The ride quality is exceptional however the overall handling is not up to par with other "sports sedans". I am impressed with most of what this car has to offer. I am not a big fan of the "quattro" system however, living in No. California there really is no need for "AWD". I wish that Audi would offer their cars with "rear wheel drive" and quattro. This is a fine car for anyone seeking a high line luxury used car. I would recommend the Audi extended warranty with any used German car you consider purchasing. There is just too much that can go wrong with these highly technical vehicles.


Best Features

Interior design and materials. Bose sound system, sporty exterior design w/the S-Line package trim.


Worst Features

Wish it got better gas mileage (averaging 19-21 overall) and would have preferred rear wheel drive to AWD.

2004 Audi A6 Sedan 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Interior build is A. Feels like true luxury car. Great handling/cornering. Family feels safe in this car.


Best Features

Satellite radio. Heated seats. Interior style & quality.


Worst Features

Fuel economy. I would like a diesel even better. Still some minor electronic problems (defogger, AC) but minor compared to pleasure of driving this car.

2004 Audi A6 Sedan 2.7T S-Line quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have been a fan of the RS6 model since it came out. Then Audi decided to make a "S-Line" A6 twin turbo V6. This is a terrific car to own (provided you protect your investment and buy the extended warranty!) I found that owning this beautiful sedan is really a pleasure. While I don't need the "quattro" feature here in Northern CA. Other than that, I really enjoy the engine's performance, the elegant euro design inside and out and the ride quality and quiet driving experience. All in all I highly recommend owning this fine sedan if "European Sporty Luxury" is something you are looking for.


Best Features

Quiet ride; elegant interior detailing;sporty exterior w/18" wheels; solid road feel; looks expensive and quite modern compared to most luxury cars. Audi has the edge in design over BMW and Mercedes...and lets not even mention the gap Audi has over Lexus, Infinity and Acura!


Worst Features

Gas mileage is a bit lower than what I expected from a 2.7 liter due to the unnecessary quattro driveline; reliability may become an issue at some point;

2004 Audi A6 Sedan 2.7T S-Line quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have owned over 40 vehicles, mostly new German cars. This Audi 2.7T S- Line luxury sedan is just that, luxury. While most think of it as a sport sedan, the fact is its handling, braking power, and ride quality is much more "luxury" than sport. That's ok however, because Audi delivers on that. I am highly impressed with how quiet the interior is while driving at freeway speed. Also, the ride quality is exceptional. If you are looking for a sports sedan, purchase a BMW. If you are looking for comfort and rolling artwork down the road, this car is the one!


Best Features

Interior design. Quiet cabin. Smooth ride quality despite 18" wheels and low profile tires.


Worst Features

Gas mileage for only a 2.7 is not that great (19mpg). Stereo system lacks low end punch. Wider tires would have given it better road grip.

Review

Subtle yet elegant. That's what I would say about this car. Nothing is overdone or classless. Audi has an incredible job of making this car appealing to those seeking both practical and luxurious features in a car. Flight controls are easy to get to, flat-dash experience doesn't alienate the passengers, incredible handling, very quiet and stable feel, and details in the rear of the car like wood trim, ashtray and cup-holders.


Best Features

Third-visor in the middle is a favorite. Rear window sunshades and the power rear sunshade is an awesome feature!!! In-dash 6-CD changer very easy to use and works great. And extra storage compartment in ALL of the doors are awesome. Everyone loves this.


Worst Features

Better integration for phone and bluetooth (built in On-Star and phone options on car not very practical).
