2012 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

Just bought a used 2012 Prestige. It's really nice inside and it drives super nice. I am used to Audi/VW 4-banger engines so the gas mileage isn't as good. But it handles and goes a lot faster than any of my previous cars. It's a true high performance luxury sedan. Just hope I don't get any big repair bills.

Review

I've owned my fairly low mile 2012 a6 for about a year now and I could not be happier. I've added a little zip to the car with an EPL tune + pulley that gives it another 80-100 hp from stock. I'd advise anyone that likes an extra sporty ride with no downside to get this tune....Amazing!! Back to the car. Love the drive. The quattro has an incredible feel of safety. Rides on rails for a luxury sports sedan. I don't have the air suspension so highway driving is a breeze but chippy roads can get a little rough, especially with 20 inch wheels. A6's have a touch more body roll than I thought they would have but it's not an S so it makes perfect sense. Interior is excellent. Seats are very comfortable. Heated seats work great but no cooled vented seats in my ride, which I really miss. Air con. is great though. Once you get used to MMI it's so easy to navigate. Speaking of navigate, the live google navigation is very nice to have at your fingertips. GAS Mileage you ask?...even with tune, 30mpg on highway at 65-70mph (26mpg on highway @ 85mph). City is around 20. Steering is a touch vague but extremely confidence inspiring. All in all the car is fantastic. I've owned an e39 M5, S55 AMG with tune (rocket), CTS-V, G35 and way way back an Integra GS-R (totally stock). I think for all around sporty driving and comfort for a family of 5, this one is my favorite of all. It obviously has more tech but the feel of safety and road holding is just amazing. It's just so easy to drive! For pure driving fun the e39 was probably the cream of the crop. Although the A6 w tune is a good bit fast than the M.

Review

Always find an after-market shop for repairs. NEVER go to an Audi Dealer, unless you have no other choice. In my case this is $85/hr for a very good after-market shop vs $155/hr at the dealer. I recently retired my 2000 A6 Bi-turbo with 424k miles. Anyone who says Audis don't stand up over time is talking rubbish. But at such mileage almost any luxury vehicle is going to nickel and dime you. Thus, my move to the 2012 A6 Prestige.

The 2012 A6 is a differently beast entirely than the 2000 A6 it replaces. Longer wheel base, wider. The supercharged 3.0 feels distinctly different than the bi-turbo 2.7, and with a re-mapping of the ECU (APR), The engine makes 400hp vs the 310 it has in stock dress. An older driver, I've always been a 'car guy', though my priorities have changed somewhat. The 8-speed automatic features paddle shifters. The Sport mode significantly tightens up the acceleration curve. While a subjective 'anecdotal' opinion, my repair shop owner who has owned and driven some of the fastest cars out there (Lambos, Ferraris, Mercedes AMGs), says my car accelerates off the line in what feels to him like a 4.6 second 0-60. The supercharger pulley upgrades I'm planning will add another 100 hp, perhaps dropping the 0-60 time to 4.2 or 4.3. At a purchase price of $17,400 it's clearly a bargain. Audi makes 3 levels of options, the highest being what they call 'Prestige'. My Prestige 3.0T has all but two options. Getting behind the wheel to drive the 45 minute commute to work in Massachusetts is always a pleasure! Refined. Fast. Comfortable.

Review

My 4th Audi, bought it used 2012 A6Prestigue supercharge. My first in 88' 91,01 and now 2012. Take good care of your Audi and it will take care of you. Living in NEw England its specially important to have Quattro for those crazy winter. Every time I feel it's time to get a newer car, I do actually go and test drive, Bmw, Mercedes, I even tried a couple other cars. But there's no handling like a Audi...I can't afford a brand new 60k Audi, but buying a precertified used is still very good. I considered purchasing a brand new car in 25-30k. Problem, they don't hold the value like a Audi do so think in the long run too. Thats my opinion.
