Great drive and the driving experience is terrific. The car looks great and the interior is luxurious!

Cons

It is not easy to drive other cars after this one

Great Car! — The car handles great and the pickup will throw you back in your seat! All this, and it isnt a sports car - so there is a lot of luxury in the cabin. The seats are heated and ventilated and full leather. The Bose sounds system really delivers. But its a great ride for passengers too - long drives seem to encourage naps!

Pros

The Audi A6 is a dream to drive and a pleasure to operate. There is not much I don't like about this car. Quick, nimble, sexy and comfortable.

Cons

It does have a few blind spots

Best Buy For The Money — The Audi A6 is a dream to drive and a pleasure to operate. There is not much I don't like about this car. Quick, nimble, sexy and comfortable. I would recommend this car over any BMW or Mercedes any day.

The Most Power And Value In It's Class. — To get the same amount of power one would have to spend significantly more, bumping you up to something of likes of a Maseratti or Porsche. The maintenance plans and warranty are comprehensive but I would be wary of keeping it past the warranty expiration as maintenance and repairs are very costly.

Pros

Luxurious interior, classy exterior with 325 torque at low rpm = strong accelerations and the 310 hp is more than adequate for daily drive + some excitements that goes along with it.

Cons

Pricy, the maintenance cost and the driver seating is somewhat less than perfect in comfort for it's class. This is subjective.

My '12 A6 Basic Rundown — Strong refined German engineer, great pick up power, 3G google earth nav, back up camera and sleek LED lights is my high points for the '12 A6. The brakes are large, strong but the "feels" is somewhat "mushy" kinda hard to explain but it can be improved. The steering wheel feels light and very sharp and responsive but for me there is this feels of disconnect from the road.

Pros

The car looks is AWESOME!

Cons

The fuel prices are a bit high which makes me a little bit sad when I fill up its tank.

Great Car To Have! — Performance is satisfactory (this is not a racing car). Build quality is pretty good. Appearance is simply marvellous! Fun Factor: Hell yeah this car is fun for a teenager to drive and showoff with at school! Cost of ownership varies with each place.. .

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