Great Car — Well i just bought it this year so that i would not have to drive a 2004 envoy xuv any more. The interrior is quite nice, every piece feels like it was ment to be there. The red lighting at night is a very nice effect that makes the car a pleasnt place to be. The 4.2L v8 provides alot of power and makes stepping on the gas fun. I also like the look of the exterrior, it looks modern and sexy. The car has the sport package and every other upgrade that came wit the line. Its fun on windy moutain roads, there is limited body roll and the AWD system provides you with alot of grip.

It's very fun for a big sedan.

You'll be spending more on gas.

A Great Daily Driver. — The 2.7T is the kind of car that can get you into trouble. With 0-60 in around 6 seconds, and the quattro all-wheel-drive system to keep you pointed in the right direction, you are likely to find yourself hounding around corners like nobody's business. And doing it in style, too. After years of BMW dominance, Audi is finally starting to turn out real competitors. If you're considering a 5-Series or an E-Class, don't forget to check out the A6 as well.

Pros

Very powerful engine. Excellent handling.  Excellent braking.  Great paint.  Car is eleven years old and looks brand new.  Body style still looks up-to-date.

Cons

Requires some degree of maintenance.  Expect to spend some money.

I Like This Car A Lot. — Six speed manual shift may not be everyones cup of tea. I always felt in complete control in this car. For long haul highway driving I don't believe that you could find anything better. I have never had a car that maintained its appearance as well as this one. I feel that I am driving a new car.

Audi A6 — I love the car, 2001 A6 2.8Q. Cat back exhaust, and many others! Great car, beautiful interior, lines, everything. So far, its ben very reliable. I have had to replace the front control arms now but that is expected on these around the 100k mile marker. Also, the valve cover gaskets can leak oil but its an easy fix. And, when it snows, nothing beats Quattro, Audi FTW!!!!!!

A6, Ups And Downs — The A6 was a beast in performance (acceleration especially), well at least for breaking speed limits on the high....that was all i got to, and it was also a quality luxury car, but there was a down side.... If you're thinking about owning one of these you'd better be prepared to fork out a monthy service bill and money for a rental car. The A6 was designed with performance in mind but from a reliability standpoint there was much to be desired. Every moth I would take the thing down to the shop to get yet another part fixed. It ranged from simple electronics to serious engine problems. One example was the time there was a crack in one of the engine pipes and when I took it to the shop the guy thought I would be satisfied with a "oh that happens a lot" answer. That happens a lot!? Well then why the hell dont you fix it to where it doesnt? In conclusion the A6 has well enough power for us sports car fanatics, but can sometimes ruin your fun because it's not reliable.

Audi A6: Subtly Superior — It's a fantastic piece of German perfection. The low-range tourque delivers surprising performance and acceleration. The twin turbos make their presence known without annoying turbo lag. The interior is perfect, all switches have a solid feel and are very intuitive. Audi's designers have perfected the pre-De Silva design language and the A6 looks better and better the closer you look. Every sculpted line has a clear purpose. The only thing wrong with this car is... Well ours has hail damage.

My German Silver Bullet — This is arguably the best sedan I've ever owned, from a big Ford, a Maxima, a Jetta and a Civic -- and even an Audi A6 2.7T 6sp -- this 4.2 is so smooth -- just wish it was European -- so it might come in a 6 speed too!

Practicality At Its Finest — The A6 2.8, although sluggish off the line, performs decently - the top speed is limited at 130 mph - for an everyday family sedan with only 200 horses. And with elegant interior rich in leather, genuine wood, and metal, it is sure to please the senses every time.
