"Bought the car at 90K. Now at 130K. Had a few minor things done - maintenance needed for this many miles. The Audi community helps with tips and tricks. Parts are widely available. Annoying little electronics things persist. Overall great car. Revolutionary in 2006. Now, nine years later, you can get a Mazda 3 sGT for $25K that has same equipment."
Pros: "Comfort, great in all weather, highway driving"
Cons: "few repairs but are expensive"

"I bought this car used at 2 year point and 40,000 miles. I lived in NY until recently and drove it in all types of weather. It plows through anything especially with good snows on it. I have had only normal maintenance on the car until just recently but it is now 8 years old and 150000 miles. It needs new valve cover gaskets, still doesn't burn a drop. Needs new rear brakes, gee, only got 100000 miles on them. Rear tail light assemblies get moisture in them and are prone to failure but still going. MY ONLY concern now is how long to keep it before it does start showing its age and goes down the slippery slope of maintenance costs. I love this car, most comfortable highway driver I have ever owned. I often drive 10 plus hours a day and never get a sore back etc."
"This car is sooo smooth, I really really like it. Everything feels very quality like.Luxurious! Lots of power when/if you need it. Brake system really saved me once....
In the past I have had a Sterling, Mitsubishi Montero and Acura (liked all, but not like this one!)
I dont think I would ever spend the money on a brand new one (I guess it goes for most cars)."
"I purchased my 2007 Audi A6 used with 69,000 miles and I have driven it to 100,000 miles. The only flaw I can find is the well documented slight hesitation from a stop when you lightly accelerate. I knew about this when I purchased it, and it is barely noticeable. The interior is fantastic. The Audi MMI takes some patience to learn, but then is quite easy to use. Quattro is unstoppable. I drove in two northern Wisconsin winters with all season tires, and you have to try to get it stuck. Comparing it to a BMW 5 series comes down to the interior and the Quattro AWD. The Audi wins hands down here."
"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."
"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."
