Pros: "Solid, safe and very comfortable"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Solid as a vault, the quattro system is fantastic and tested a lot during this last crude winter, i pamper the car a lot, but the quality of construction and materials used, make this car look and feel as a newer one. I love AUDI, and this is my third one. I recommend the A6 of this generation."

Cons: "Cost of ownership"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Purchased as Certified Used. Lease car with 23000 miles in 2009. Unstoppable in snow & rain, handles like a sport sedan. E Class MB wagon drives like a bus compared to the A-6 Avant. Comfortable & versatile touring vehicle that will run all day at 80+ mph. Have driven from Phila. To Montreal as well as Phila. To Fla. I plan on driving to Atlanta twice this summer. I currently also own two Mercedes and can say that the Audi Dealership experience is not in the same league as MB. Keeping this vehicle in top mechanical condition is not cheap, avg. ~$1500-$2000/year not including tires. Rewards for maintaining it are high! The A-6 Avant is no longer available in the US, I would consider buying newer one if it were."

Pros: "Fun to drive, good mileage"

Cons: "2nd front cup holder is hidden"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"First Audi, great experience. The CVT took an initial "getting used to" period. The A6 is quick of the mark, particularly in Sports mode. I only, truly, gripe is that the second cup holder up front is hidden under the arm rest. 17 miles between home/work with traffic, average 21MPG at and average 24MPH."

"At over 165k miles, the has only needed typical maintenance. Brakes, tires, oil, etc. it is still "tight" and I feel like it has another 100k miles in it, trouble free. It is my 5th Audi, and all have been great"

"this is the 4th A6 I have owned and the only thing I don't like is the 50 miles to the dealer. I switched to the V6 from the V8 when I bought this model and could only tell the difference if when I had to "floor it", which is never - now that I'm in my 60's."

"I am in love with this car. I have only owned domestic vehicles so I was a little timid about buying a import. I purchased my vehicle 2nd hand with roughly 165k miles on it. I am only home for 30 days out of the year and wasn't looking to have a monthly payment for something I don't drive. I have put approximately 5k miles on and could spend all day driving this car. Its handles like a dream, better than my '96 Cobra. The last time I was home, I did have to take it to the dealership to have my coils and plugs replaced because the #6 cylinder was misfiring, expect with the mileage. Quick and not too expensive fix. I live in the mountains of Maine and was caught driving home in a snow storm one night. My road hadn't been plowed yet and had about 8 inches of snow and the car handle it just fine with the Quattro drive train. The road might as well have been dry. The engine has good, smooth power and quiet. I wouldn't attempt to work on the engine due to its fine tuning. The car rides smooth. I am sold on this brand for life."
