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


Review

Having been a loyal BMW driver for many years, it was hard to even consider buying an Audi. But with the less attractive styling of the BMW 5 series, i considered the Audi A6 and was very happy I did. The Audi doesn't quite have the pep and drive of a BMW, but the excellent Quattro all-wheel drive system and the incredibly attractive and comfortable interior make this car a real joy. I've been very impressed by the car's quality and dependability.


Best Features

Quattro.


Worst Features

Bolder styling, more responsive engine.

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


Review

I love to drive my Avant. The ride is supreme and handles great on dry or wet roads; winter driving is very disappointing. The vehicle was shipped and delivered with obvious flaws in the trim and rear window glass. Several MMI modules had to be replaced, also a rear light module, and the adaptive shocks squeak and moan so badly it ruins the fun of driving the car; one strut has already been replaced and another is in need. The navigation is unreliable and does not recoginze obvious short cuts. Greatly lacks in quality and reliability.


Best Features

Adaptive cruise control, Bose surround sound, acceleration, cavernous cargo space


Worst Features

Better, more reliable, accurate information in the owner's manual. Auto-tilt down passenger mirror combined with rear parking assist have many blind spots that I had to learn the hard way. Squeakless air-struts. Better placed warning lights. Warning light for suspension in dynamic mode.

Review

In my opinion, the A6 is the new standard for mid-luxury sedans. Virtually all of its features - including handling, the console control system (MMI), and sleek looks - make driving this car a pure pleasure. Before buying, I compared the A6 to others in its price range, and it came out on top in almost all areas. And among the German-brand sedans, here's my humble opinion: If you want great performance, drive a BMW; if you want a luxurious feel, drive a Mercedes; if you want both, drive an Audi.


Best Features

Its time-proven quattro system handles extremely well, even in the worst of snowstorms. It's much roomier and comfortable than the pre-2005 A6 and its current competitors. I love the understated styling accented with bold details, such as 17-inch wheels and a gaping-jaw front grill.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage would help, but the A6 compares favorably in MPG with others in its price range, so this is a minor critique of an otherwise complete package of luxury, performance, and reliability.

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


Review

Beautifully thought out car... was delivered to me in pristine condition, not a thing to criticize. Interior like a jet cockpit, driver fits in like a foot in a shoe. Everything automatic, voice recognition works flawlessly. Had to use the owner's manual extensively for first 2 weeks, but then everything fits into place. MMI really takes command of everything! Almost 2000 miles, not a thing to complain about: I just hope all the fancy electronics last as long as the rest of the car with no problems. Lots of electronic convenience features I never had before in my 1999 Caddy Concours. I'm sold on Audis if things keep up the way they are now!


Best Features

Folding outside mirrors for small garages, xenon headlamps, voice control of many accessories. Keyless locks and ignition are GREAT! 4WD should be a boon in NJ winters (to be determined). Fit and finish of the whole car are virtually flawless.


Worst Features

Big gripe? Gas pedal and brake are too close together for us wide-footed gorillas! Have to be careful each time I drive off, very easy to press both at once. Also, eliminate the disclaimer you must hit on the MMI each startup; it's a minor nuisance.
