An all around great car. Prefer to Mercedes and BMW. The car is engineered to make driving easy and safe. The features work together so well and seamlessly, that you don't notice how pampered you are until you drive another vehicle. Engine, transmission, and all-wheel drive work perfectly together.

Reliable, awesome in the snow, luxurious

This is my second A6 and I'm approaching the 100,000 mile mark and have still never had any problems! I just perform the scheduled maintenance, and that's it. Compared to my past cars, including BMW 5-series, Mercedes C-class, and Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, it is the most reliable. Also has a very smooth, solid ride. The only criticism I have is the MMI system. It's impossible to get the FM presets to display in the way I want them to. And the Nav system is a bit outdated; I just use my iPhone for that instead because it's so much faster. Will keep this car for many years before I buy another one!

This car is very classy and comfortable while handling and power are very nice also. The materials used in the interior are exquisite to touch making for an overall pleasurable experience. If you're looking for a luxury sedan that doesn't require the luxury price this is your car.

Was looking for something to just get me by for 1-2 years (did not want a car payment and wanted a bigger car). Reasons why I purchased it: 1. 2005 and up A6s are pretty reliable. 2. Solid looking 3. Does not drive like a BMW (more reliable),but still drives better than most other cars. 4. Love the interior 5. Heck of a price Will most likely purchase a new 5 series in 1-2 years (this was an unexpected purchases).. I will say that I will at least look at the new A6 when I am ready to purchase again.

Car has been great but is a high maintenance vehicle. Not many indipendent shops can work on and parts are usually expensive but if you take care of it as in maintenance it will be a dependable vehicle. I Would definitely recommend taking to dealership for maintenance and repairs as independent shops can overlook needed areas of attention if they are not use to working on Audi's or don't have an experienced Audi technician.

Really neat car

by from Glenview, Il on June 25, 2012

This is a really nice car, smooth to drive. Handles the road easily. The only downside - the mirrors are too small. Other than that, that's a true gem.

JD Power's most reliable car of the year.

This car rides and feels like no other. You can try and compare it to it's Japanese competitors, but once you take a good look they simply do not stack up. When you want; power, performance, comfort and reliability all in one package look no further. This car does it all with it's 3.2L FSI engine, it propels itself up to speed with a smooth effortless feeling. While also at the same time saving you gas. The ride is surprisingly comfortable even with the optional 18" wheels. Around town the ride may become a bit bumpy, but once you are out on the highway it becomes no problem. You will defiantly fall in love with the Quattro AWD. This car corners with confidence in mind. Worrying about getting stuck in the snow or on a hill is virtually a thing of the past. Everything in this car works perfectly well, the MMI may take a while to get used to. Once you have it down you will quickly find it is quite easy, and a pleasure to use. With features like adaptive bi-xenon headlamps you'll wonder how you ever drove any other car at night. When traveling at speeds above 12mph the headlights move with the steering wheel to help you see where you are going before you get there. Audi's advanced key system is one of the more user friendly and advanced systems out there. Requiring only the presence of your hand at each door handle it unlocks without needing to press a button. Once in side you may use the start/stop button to turn the vehicle on. If you may ever need to leave the vehicle running, say a cold morning, and need to leave the car. You can lock it with the key in your pocket and the engine on with the push of a button. The Audi A6's interior is second to none. As always with an of Audi's interiors, the cockpit is elegantly designed with subtle aluminum trim pieces that flow rather very well with the wood trim. The leds in the doors and underneath the seats create a warm glow for occupants at night. The entire center console is positioned towards the driver, and every switch/button has a feeling of precision. Winning JD Power's most reliable car of the year, you will rarely see this car seeing many trips to the repair shop. Overall the Audi A6 is a car for those who want a vehicle with incredible driving dynamics. As well as passion & soul each and every time you drive it.
