Pros: "Fun to drive, this old car needs some new parts"

Cons: "Terrible gas mileage"

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

"Owned for 2 years, not good on gas mileage. Learned to fix a little on my own, replaced emergency flasher control which also runs turn signals. Believe it cost $100 to change air filter, which I did on my own, and it was a pain. Car gets up and goes, drive 2 miles on lonely highway to port I work at, easily get up to 85 and will go more, even this old car does not shake. Sure would like a new one but looking for a 2010 or newer this fall."

"If the payments were not so high I would be happy to purchase a new one, just need something more cost effective. Absolutely love this car, parting with it is the hardest choice I have had to make. I adore everything about it and how it runs!!"

Pros: "Great driving car. Very comfortable."

Cons: "Expensive to repair"

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

"Purchased car in 2005 with 28,000 miles. Changed oil every 5,000 mi. Car is safe, fun to drive and held up well. Only complaint as with all German cars, once the warranty is over (100,000mi.) repairs can get expensive. Car is still in service and performs well given its age and mileage. Would get another Audi without hesitation."

Pros: "A pleasure to own"

Cons: "93 octane gas"

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

"The only negative is that you have to use 93 octane gas.Repairs are expensive due to propietary replacement parts. But it is best using a dealer service center There is no car that can compare in overall performance or driving comfort.And I have driven up to 15 hours a day without discomfort. I have rented cars and can NOT find a car close to mine. Thank you, Audi."

WAY too expensive to own an Audi A6 2.7T

Cons: "Everything not related to it's exterior beauty"

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

"Everything under the sun went bad on this car: transmission, turbos, tiptronic, air/heat blowers, regulators, sensors, electric windows, dash guages, gaskets, on and on. This car will break you before you ever come close to having it in tip-top condition. I wouldn't walk across the street to take a free Audi A6 2.7T...or any other Audi. The 2.7T was my 3rd and final Audi. Do yourself a favor and buy a Mercedes!!!"
