Sophisticate But Weak — Facinating technology, love them all red interior lighting and computers. However Audi needs to figure out a way to keep their car computers working right!

Pros: interior room, sound system, electronics

Cons: electronics/computers not very reliable

A Classy 4-door Saloon — A big premium saloon, with style. A beautifullt packaged car, and a very classy interior. Front wheel drive, but came in Quattro as well

Pros: Very clever package. Humungous boot. Fantastic interior, beautiful smooth V6

Cons: Front wheel drive, choppy ride for the size of car, poor handling

Superb Daily (work) Driver For 13 Years —

This 1998 Audi A6 has been my daily driver as a Real Estate Agent in Canada since I purchased as a 2 years old (lease back) in 2000 for $35,000 CAD. I had driven Acura's up to that point but fell in love with the Audi's (unusual) interior colour, handling and style. Since I purchased it in Winter, I quickly fell in love with the all weel drive system. Needless to say, given the 200,000+ KM I have put on this car, I have generally loved it. However, you can't drive an aging German luxury car without a little hate in your heart. On average, to maintain this car in top shape, I have spend $1,500 a year for the last 5 years, a surprising amount of that on tires (heavy car). Parts sourced through my mechanic are quite cheap since the Audi has benefited by the long and continued use of this platform by VW. The car is in the shop a couple of times per year over the last 5 mostly with replacing aging plastic hoses and chasing down oil leaks. Not terrible perhaps for a 14 year old car but painful since I'm stuck driving my wife's (boring) Toyota. I have now purchased a newer A6 (2-14) but still use this car for personal use at it fits like an old glove. As you may have seen from the pictures, have also attempted to keep this car up to date with modern electronics, while keeping the beautiful stock look of the interior, which I feel remains it's strongest feature. I have added a Phatbox 120GB music system, Garmin Nuvi 7690 and XM radio (professionally installed). I feel this car still compares well with anything on the road less than $40K, and I still get constant compliments on it as I drive customers around! In summary, a well maintained late model A6 C5 platform is an excellent investment for a relatively inexpensive German luxury vehicle - but find a good mechanic to check it out carefully and be ready for some frustrations along with your smooth daily drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Style, handling, winter driving

Cons: repairs but costs can be suprisingly reasonable with a good indy garage and Passat parts.

Very Big And Beautiful Car — This a 1998 Audi A6 and still looks much better than most of the japanese cars and american cars made today. It has incredible performance and the quattro system makes driving on snow a breeze. This car technological advancements that were seen in the 2005 and later Japanese models. Fully loaded car. Overall this a wonderful car.

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

Pros: Audi sets it's own standards

Cons: Very heavy
