2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

The A6 is a full size luxury sedan that handles and accelerates like a sports car. The 3.0 supercharged 300 HP engine has a husky growl that always lets you know that you have plenty of horses under the hood to move out smartly, any time you wish. Yet the car drives and handles with potent nimbleness and impressive comfort. The best way to describe the car is CLASS!!

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

The car is plagued with door dings and minor scratches. I found two separate leaks (Oil and coolant). The dealer stated the car underwent a coolant leak fix but when I asked for the receipt, they could not produce one. As for the oil leak, they were unaware.

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I love driving this car but sadly have had too many problems.

1) had to replace 4 tires after hitting small potholes for flat/sidewall bubbles. Really detracts from driving enjoyment if constantly worrying about the tires.

2) total of 4 services for coolant pump, 3 engine related repairs - broken fan, loose lines, and rear view mirror falling off.


Best Features

Interior, handling, power


Worst Features

Stronger tires Better build quality

2010 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Car has some great features but expect problems with front brake rotors.
I was hoping Audi would correct brakes and after problems with my 2005 allroad I switched to a Mercedes 300 series. After 52,000 miles I traded in on original brakes. Now my A-6 2010 again has warped rotors after 17,800 miles. Pads only about 40% worn or less. This was same problem in allroad. It just cost me 600 dollars after 15% dealer discount - a true joke. I usually use engine during down hills and am carefull not to heat brakes. I think that it may be slush or cold rain that cold shocks the rotors. When audi covered these under warranty I did not mind, they stopped this in 2005 probably due to frequency - so $$$


Best Features

good econony- acceleration - generally a great car except for brakes. Next time I will go back to a mercedes, BMW or Volvo for ski country - even my Checy Suburban went 70k miles on original brakes.


Worst Features

Beaf up rotors or bring back brake warranty 5/50K

Review

This is my 2nd A6, and 3rd Audi. Overall an excellent car. Shopped it against BMW 535xi, but found it to be more responsive, particularly at low speeds, and much more attractive (aesthetically), especially the interior. Audi did make the car more powerful with the new 3.0T engine, and managed to keep the price down, but it did fall short to some cost savings: The stereo is no longer a Bose unit, hidden cubbyholes under the front seats are gone, the side mirrors no longer fold automatically, and the standard tires are now 97H (even the Q7 gets 109H). The only reliability issue I experienced was a coolant leak due to a faulty water pump, which was replaced under a recall notice.


Best Features

The car is well finished and very comfortable. Acceleration is quite good (especially given its size, weight and AWD). Overall handling is also good, Audi AWD is second to none. Handling in the snow is excellent, even on stock tires. Fuel economy is 22 in the city 28 on the highway (reasonable use).


Worst Features

I miss the automatically folding mirrors, especially when parking in the city or in tight spots. I wish Audi would stop cutting costs on little things. I don't mind if a $54k car costs $200 more 3 years down the road. Cheap plastic housing on the water pump which had to be replaced with metal one.
