2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

In Europe owning an Audi is a sign of success and knowledge..they lead the German pack. The German made cars such as this beautiful A6 Quattro as simply the best built cars in the world in this class. The secret to finding that pefect used Audi IMO is to buy it thru the same Audi dealer who originally sold it and it has full service history...all the petigree updates. The A6 is a computer with wheels so keeping it uptodate is critical but even a cheapo newer cars requires this maintience..yes you want to but high quality oil and filters simply because it's a awd marvel.


Best Features

The C6 is the choice..the C5 was it's test-bed. The 2013 actually has very close DNA to the 06 full optioned A6. I've found Audi doesn't make major changes over the years they concentrate on refinement.


Worst Features

Extra set of wheels for snow zone owners with the new high-performance winter tires and you'll turn into a super-lux snow cat.

2006 Audi A6 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Do not by one of these unless you are willing to shell out $$ for service and repairs.
Shortly after 80K you will notice small issue that result in very costly repairs, regardless of being diligent in regards to preventive maintenance.
CVTs are not a good idea, the controller (TCM) tend to fail before the CVT, either way you are looking at a minimum of $2500.
If you want an Audi buy one with a clutch or pay for extended warrenties, they are worth it.


Best Features

Ride is great. Handling is light considering the weight and I can still get 30+ mpg on an 2006 with 90K miles. (CVT is worthless)


Worst Features

No more CVT !!! If Audi doesn't back them up than why are they using them at all ?

Review

Although it's a beutiful, luxurious car, there are a lot of trouble spots. First, the oil change costs over $100 every time because it requires 7 quarts of synthetic plus oil. Next, the fuel economy is terrible. Gets no more than 15 on the city. Possibly 20 on the highway. Next, I had water pumps break under the car which resulted in flooding of the floor and a horrible mildew smell. This happened 3 times. Beautiful appearence, but too many cons to reccomend. Instead, I reccomend the Lexus GS or Infiniti M

Review

Nice car for the money. Beautiful interior and solid performance. Canyon red color is eye catching and unusual. Brakes are annoying and 3 dealers could not fix the grab and squeal. Mileage with OEM tires was excellent. I replaced them at 30,000 miles with Bridgestone all season but poor roll resistance yields full 15% poorer mileage. Stick with OEM Continental tires.


Best Features

Styling very nice. Nav system excellent and you can program while driving.


Worst Features

Brakes have design defect. They grab; it is impossible to gently depress them to a pleasant stop in city driving. Also squeal sometimes. Gas pedal is hair-trigger too.
