2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Panache, practicality (roomy back seat)
and phantastically phast -- what more
could one want? Better MPG, maybe, but
comparable cars are just as bad (e.g.
E55 AMG) -- and they don't have or
offer All Wheel Drive. I've never
driven this much in one year (24K mi),
which says a lot. Spent time in shop
after 10K mi but turns out that was due
to poor communication at Audi rather
than parts availability, which was
blamed at the time. Also have 2000
Audi S4 & need to sell one of them.
Love the S4 too; more nimble and, with
a chip, almost as fast. But even tho
selling the RS6 would bring $40+K more,
I have no such plans. RS6 pleases eyes,
ears, even nose!


Best Features

Speed, sound (standard exhaust), comfort, traction; can enter merging traffic like no other sedan I've driven, including Merdeces-Benz E55 AMG (which is a little faster but jerky at times, due to no AWD).


Worst Features

Ride could be smoother; suggest adjustable levels of stiffness like E55 AMG. Seats are good but Europe got Recaros, which probably are better. Hope next generation gets better MPG, maybe using something similar to new Chrysler 300/Dodge Magnum (runs on 4 cylinders when cruising)

2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My S8 was good, but the RS6 is spectacular. The
only "con" is the mediocre interior detail. NAV is
terrible system requires new CD halfway from Philly
to NY. Transmission and most everything is last
years. No map screen. The performance is
wonderful. With all the disappointment with the
"old" equipment, I bought two.


Best Features

Smooth effortless acceleration and stable handling even driving hard in the turns. Comfortable, verisitile, stable, Quattro attractive.


Worst Features

Finish the car with the best features from the A8 and other lines. The performace reflects the talent and effort of the Audi engineering team. The finish and features were ignored. Great performance alone id not enough.

2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A superb handling car with explosive
acceleration, good ergonomics, excellent
comfort. Holds four people comfortably,
but has a small trunk space. Excellent
audio system and GPS navigation system
(although no map). The all-wheel drive
adds greatly to the handling in
wet/snowy weather. The brakes are superb.


Best Features

Handling, brakes and speed.


Worst Features

Turn signal indicator is too close to the steering column.

Review

I'm very happy with this vehicle. I can only
compare it to my experience driving an
imitation NASCAR vehicle at Richard Petty's
experience. It delivers on everything I ask of
it. The only issue I have is with the Darn
OnStar system.


Best Features

The sound enhancing exhausts make this thing sound like the beast that it is, otherwise it behaves in a very subtle manner.


Worst Features

I'd love to have some more modern features like another speed on the tranny, Color LCD Nav System and we have to have Bluetooth interfacing to the telematics, putting MP3 playback capability on the CD-Changer would be a plus too.
