She's one that I hate to love

Most comfortable ride ever. And being all- wheel drive, she's reliable when it comes to living up north.



Hands down Audi Quattro handles the road no matter what the conditions A6 is a super stable ride in any weather. Great handling in rain, snow, ice, puddles, you name it.



WHEN AUDI BUILT THE 1997 A6 THEY PROMISED TO DELIVER THE BEST AUDI EVER AND THEY DIDNT DISAPPOINT TO DATE THEY HAVE YET TO BUILD AN A6 OF HIGHER QUALITY OF PAINT GLASS COMFORT INTERIOR HANDLING EXTERIOR ok they made a faster A6 and got rid of the delayed throttle response but that can be overcome by pressing on the acceleration before take off while in neutral...i have tried countless amounts of newer cars mostly luxury ('02bmw525i '06 325i '00 lexus 400 '04 a4 s4 a6 '02 benz c240 acura rl) and eventhough some are faster(gas prices) they just cant match the overall of this A6 no issues at all in 10 yrs ownage the parts just dont wear out stops on a dime...we're not supposed to have cars that perform great forever...and unlike other cars that get worse over time this car i kid you not improved overtime because of its slight weight tires have to be replaced when they reach their mileage limits and i dont recommend doing any upgrades or after market products especially electrical its a very complex car so if it must be done by dealership only after i serviced my car at a toyota dealership(don't ask they had a guy that was audi expert) it literaly went from super comfortable to HOVERCRAFT zero sound mega smoothness(the mechanics kept telling me i had a great car). This car is excessively reponsive to the driver and eats pot holes and railroad crossings even speed bumps the car seems to know when u want to accelerate or stop between the on board computer and some mini hydraulics sensing i believe the car comes to a complete stop if u let go of the accelerator if the curviture of the road follows the angle of the road (i.e. narscar tracks) you can let your hands go and the suspension will try to follow curve/bend of road hence (with minor help) following the road like a train follows tracks but don't try this just take my word and finally I BOUGHT THE CAR FOR 40% RETAIL AND YES THIS CAR DOESN'T STOP AT 120 MPH AS LISTED I'VE GONE UPTO 185 MPH IN A RACE TRACK NO AFTERMARKET/CHANGES feels like you are doing about 90-100 in other cars
