Pros

Looks, build quality, handling, traction

Cons

Heavy steering compared to a rear wheel drive, good but not great power.

Audi A6 Is A Winner — Great looks, ride, handling, traction in wet or snowy conditions. The car is built so well, both inside and out. The materials, fit and finish, and realibility have been excellent. Service is not cheap, but I have needed very little of it luckily. Hard to think of what I don't like....uh...somewhat heavy steering due to all wheel drive; power is good but not mind-blowing by any means....that's about it. Oh, and the gas mileage is just so-so....averages 18.3.

For A Truly Amazing Ride, Choose This Audi. — There is nothing like a German made vehicle. Japanese made cars can't compare. This car handles the road like a race car would. The acceleration is so smooth when entering a highway. It's an awesome car and fun to drive. The body of the car is heavier than that of a Honda or a Toyota. This model Audi was made for 3 years only and I've had no problem with it.

Pretty much everything about it

Cons

Audi servicing is expensive

Audi A6 Vorsprung Durch Technik And A Smile On Your Face — Svelte comfortable extremely well built has done 115,000 miles and feels like new. It's a 1.9 Turbo diesel and for such a large car it goes like a greased weasel. Can fit 3 kids in the back with 2 child seats! Or 3 large-ish adults all in comfort. The boot is so cavernous I was thinking of renting out rooms in it.

The Beast — Performace: -4.2 V8 engine quattro -double overhead cam - 350 Horsepower @ 5,700 RPM -Four wheel ABS -Stability Control -The car is 7 year old and still looks better than many 2010 cars out there. Very well designed. Great ride on the snow better than most cars with the AWD system. -The car is fast, handles well and is an all-around first class sedan. It has wonderful build quality, is roomy for passengers and luggage, fun to drive and is significanly cheaper than other's in its price range and class.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great German Engineering With Few Tiny Flaws — I love this car! I loved it since I drove it the first time and I am still gaga about it. Quality, power, handling are unsurpassed in it's class. I only wish the 2.5TDI would be available in the USA, then it would be as perfect as a car can be.

Love My Audi And Am A Repeat Audi Customer — I loved this car. Great YEAR-round performance. Quatro gives you confidence in the snow! Only selling because I bought a new one! Gas mileage as advertised. Had all maintenance performed at dealer --prices a little high as would be expected.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

ride. smooth, quiet. roomy.

Cons

long feeling? way too round looking. not the fastest boat on the water. (at least in its 3 liter form)

Impressed To Say The Least... — This car is one of the best driving cars that I've driven. Forget mercedes... buy an audi! I was impressed with the ride/feel of it. It wasn't the fastest thing on four wheels... it's not the best looking thing on four wheels either. (although i like the way the RS6 and the new models look) it's roomy and just all around a nice car. it feels long. it has a cool key and cool folding mirrors. I'm a fan.

The smooth ride.

Cons

The leather squeaks against the console.

My Audi. — Good acceleration when you put the foot down. Strong brakes, don't need to stress your foot. Good handling in any weather, takes corner effortlessly. Everything in great condition. Great seats, floors, body. Black paint, tan leather. Just regular maintenance and care is good. Doesn't need stuff that other cars don't need. SEXY to drive.

Fantastic Car — performance - 1.9 TDI 130 bhp when the turbo kicks in it takes off i love the power it has build quaility - being german and not that old it is solid every now and then there is a screech from the bonnet but goes in seconds other than that for a car with 126k on the clock it is german engineering at its finest appearance - there are a few stone chips and 1 or 2 scratches but other than that it is perfect and looks fantastic cost - cost me £8500 and about £150 on fuel a month but being diesel it is very good does about 35 - 40 miles per gallon fun factor - well considering the car i had before this was a 10 year old vectra this is just perfection i love the power and speed and it has all the mod cons ie: heated seats leather interior climate control trip computer cruise control multi disk cd changer and much more i will be keeping this car for a long time yet and plan to replace it only with an audi Q7 3.0 TDI (when i can afford it lol)
