2008 Audi A6 3.2 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.1L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My wife and I spent over a month researching and test driving midsize luxury cars and when it was all done, the Audi A6 was the clear winner. About 6 weeks later we have no regrets. It's styling and build easily surpass its competitors. The MMI is not that difficult to learn. My wife, no techie, but has mastered it and is now a big fan of the system. It just takes a little patience to learn a new way of doing things. iPod interface is excellent and the NAV system is very well implemented. Lane assist is a great safety feature and works well. I much prefer the Audi to BMW, MB or Lexus. For us, the runner up was the Infinity M35.


Best Features

Quattro, MMI, great iPod interface, 2 screen NAV system, exterior and especially interior styling and finish, really quiet and smooth on highway, MPG is excellent with V6, lane assist, keyless entry, rearview camera and sensors, great trunk. lighting accents in cabin at night


Worst Features

Front distance sensors should be added, automatic steering wheel should retract both up and in on exiting car (not just up). Would prefer cruise control stalk on right side of steering column (like in Lexus/Toyota cars) -- it's too close to turn signal in Audi.

Review

3rd Audi, and extremely happy with how the deign has matured. Smooth cornering, pick up, quiet cabin, butter start up process, intuitive controls.


Best Features

Look (Brilliant Black with Amaretto Brown), stereo sound, S-Line interior upgrade. Nice car, however Audi still has "annoying" small improvements, not big enough to stop me from buying, but from a practical perspective reaching to the glove compartment for CD/iPod connection is "stupid"!


Worst Features

The maintenance program is pathetic, with Audi no longer picking up maintenance. Those of us who are used to this went from having a wonderful program, to virtually nothing (first 5000 mile service free)! Why isn't Home Link garage door opener standard? CD/iPod control still in glove compart.

Review

Reading good reviews by the editor as well as some owners, my daughter decided to give it a try...I wish she did not. The car has 10,500 miles on it. It is 1.5 years old. She came here to Milwaukee for a funeral. On the way from Chicago the yellow light came on. As soon as she got out of the highway the car stalled. She called the road assistance as well as the leasing company and they told her to try starting it. The car started. They told her that since this is just the yellow light drive it and bring it in when you are back. On the way to the funeral the car stalled again 3 times! She had to borrow mine, left the car parked on the street. This is the Audi/German luxury

Review

This is my 2nd Audi A6 and the 2008 sure does beat out my old '00 A6. Everything is much improved. I avg. 31 MPG on the highway and 18 in the city. The only thing I truely miss is the ol' twin turbo. It would have been nice to have it again. This is a very solid care. Great stereo. By far the best cruise control I have ever seen. The NAV is a must, extremely accurate and again one of the best I've seen. Handling is tight as you dive into turns. I've had many 4 wheel drive trucks and cars and I can assure you this car with stock tires never fails me while traveling through the Pocono Mtns in PA. The brakes are undescribable. The car stops on a dime. Excellent car!


Best Features

Navigation, brakes, cruise contro,l fuel economy.


Worst Features

I'd love to see the old twin turbo come back. The engine lacks just a little for me.

Review

Couldn't be happier with the car. Considered the normal peers (E350 4matic, 530x, Acura RL, M35x, etc). Drove them all but felt that the A6 was the best overall package - drive, interior and exterior styling, options/ capabilities, etc) - and importantly at the most attractive price. Have owned BWM (330ci), Audi (A4), Acura (Legend) and spent a lot of time in MB (E) and Lexus (GS). Like my A6 better than any of them.


Best Features

Interior and exterior styling, safe feeling of drive


Worst Features

My prior Audi came with oil changes included (as did all Audi's at the time). Audi no longer offers. Not sure why. Was a great service.
