"Have owned this car since new. Totally reliable, smooth, fast. No creaks, rattles. Still great styling for an 8 year old vehicle. Interior has held up great after taking a beating from little kids. No major issue (or minor ones for that matter). Burning a little oil, but that's to be expected. A must buy used or new."

Wonderful car, plan to buy another one

"This 2006 is my second Audi A6,both were purchased new, it is a great car. I will buy another one. It rides like a dream with 186,000 miles on it, has the same great pick up as when brand new. It is great in all weather, handles snow and bad weather roads very well. I have treated it well, never missed any maintenance. Currently it has begun to require oil before the scheduled maintenance, not an issue for me. I consider this an expensive car to purchase, however my husband has had 3 cars to my one, so cost benefit analysis, I am doing better."

"Really wish I would have stuck with Mercedes, Lexus, or Land Rover. Yes I'm saying it..... I have had 3 Range Rovers and NEVER had issues with any of them!!!! This is the 1st used car I've bought and what a nightmare. Thought I was safe going to an actual Audi dealer, but nope. Before the temp tag was expired the problems began..... 1) Roof Leaking...Not the moon roof, the actual roof. 2) Month 3 coolant light randomly comes on and off, had sensor replaced 3) coolant light again, coolant tank replaced. 4) Oil Leak 5) CV Joints 6) Driveshaft 7) Valve Gaskets 8) Washer Fluid Tank. Now my check engine light has been on for like 5 months, and the Audi dealer cant seem to figure out what the problem is. I have multiple engine cylinder misfires now. Every time I try to get this thing fixed and spend a few grand at Audi, when I pick it up they inform me that what I just had done didn't fix the problem but doing "abc" should with a price tag of a few more grand...... I have had this car for about 2 years. It had 70k miles on it when I bought it. Total time since purchase I haven't had some kind of warning light, sensor, etc.. on, TWO MONTHS!!!! I have pumped over $7k into it so far in just under 2 years. So much for the CERTIFIED AUDI DEALERS how ever many point inspection. Oh and the "warranty" they give ya to 100K miles.... USELESS!!!! I will never own, nor will I recommend Audi to ANYONE!!! I expected so much more. But kudos to LAND ROVER ('99 '03'05 RANGE ROVER); JAGUAR('07 XK); LEXUS ('02 SC/LX '04 LX '08 LS/LX); INFINITI ('04 M45); MERCEDES ('99 SL500 '05 CLK500); & BMW ('03 X5 4.4). Out of the cars listed above, the ones I had NO, NONE, ZERO problems with and in my opinion are superb .... LEXUS / LAND ROVER / JAGUAR. While the other are great. But AUDI.... NEVER AGAIN!! NEVER!!"

"Heard much about the Audi not being a reliable vehicle, I am telling you, this is far and above the best vehicle I have ever owned . . .several BMW's MB and Lexus (not close) - great sports car handling, superior interior, overall build quality and very dependable . . . tires and brakes only investment, which is pretty standard . . . Oh yes, I have replaced the battery just once since 2006 . . . great value, you bet!"

"I have owned my Audi A6 V8 Prestige for 4 years. This is one exceptional car. The quattro is so needed in the winter, it never fails to get me where I need to go. When I shop for a new car, it's always been Audi for me."

Pros: "Fun to drive. Heavy, safe car in the snow"

Cons: "No Rear assist scensors in reverse"

"I gave my Husband such a hard time when he wanted me to pick this car for myself. After driving it for 3 yrs, I can whole heartedly say, its the best car I have had the pleasure of driving. The ride is flawless, it's a tank in the snow & I get nothing but compliments from anyone I have had ride in it. The A6 is heavy & I feel safe in it. The Audi Prestige Package is more than I could ever ask for. The only option I miss is the back up assist scensors. Highly Recommend this car!"
