In the past we've had 2 different BMWs. We now have an A4 and a A6 audi. We just purchased another preowned A6 to replace our 1998 A6 with well over 200,000k on it. We decided on another A6 because in our opinion, it is the best bang for our buck. The quality and comfort is simply amazing. It's much better on fuel than denoted, which has always been a pleasant surprise. It's simply a smart choice living in this region. It may not sit up high like a big SUV... but it seems like there's always another higher up SUV on the road and you still can not see around it. This Audi A6 is solid and since it was pre-owned, a great price. I can not believe when people don't drive a four-wheel drive in this area. If they did, it would be much safer for everyone on the road.

I just returned from driving my new A6 for over 2,400 miles in Europe. The car is very comfortable. The seats hold you firmly in place yet produce no sore spots even after hours of riding. The low noise levels of the cabin aid greatly in limiting fatigue. The much maligned MMI does require some study but is convenient to operate. If you found this review online, you can easily learn to operate all of the MMI functions. The performance and handling of the A6 is impressive. The 3.2L (3,123 cc) does just fine in getting up to speed, whether merging, passing, or setting the pace for autobahn traffic. After break in, I reached the car’s electronic speed cap of 134 mph several times. Even then the car is rock solid with very tight steering and no drift, shake, wobble, or float. The brakes are controlled and predictable. The suspension of the A6 is a great combination of road surface sensing and isolation from harsh jolts. You always “know” what conditions the tires are encountering but rarely do you have to think about it. Having done a lot of research on quattro, I summarize it as follows: Other all wheel drive systems are like walking on a slippery sidewalk where you slip and then catch yourself before you fall. Audi’s quattro is like not slipping in the first place. Other systems have to slip first, then detect the slip with ABS sensors, then actuate a clutch which then sends more torque to other wheels. Audi uses the completely mechanical TORSEN center differential to instantly distribute torque between the front and rear wheel pairs. In most cases, this prevents slip before it happens, rather than trying to play catch up like those systems on BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Acura, etc. The enhanced exterior styling of the 2008 model provides a sportier yet still refined look. The interior design features the classic Audi attention to detail with attractive wood inserts and stitched leather seats. As for features, I most like the adaptive air suspension (special order only on the 2008 3.2L), back up camera, headlight washers, capability to fold down half or the entire back seat, and adaptive headlights. (WARNING: While I highly recommend taking European delivery, Audi’s program is extremely behind schedule. I had to fight very hard to get my documentation in time for my trip.)

I've been leasing this car for 2 years now and this is the first car I've leased that I have not wanted to change half way through the lease. The combination of comfort, agility and quattro handling is amazing! I now have a number of stories of driving through snow and ice where beemers and benzes were simply parked on the side or doing snow angels in. The sports mode on the standard automatic transmission is a lot of fun and gives the car a dose of adrenaline. I would definitely get another A6.

We've got a 2008 Audi A6 Avant, a replacement for a 2005 Audi Allroad. We loved the Allroad, and the A6 Avant is almost as good. Only complaint, the steering wheel controls are not intuitive and require you to take your eyes off the road. The old ones were better.

Quality Vehicle

by from New York on March 10, 2008

I have owned Audis for the past 4 1/2 years. The new Audi is by far the best they have yet made. Incredible feeling of build quality and excellent handling.

I have driven Audi's for years (along with some BMW's and Mercedes) and I can tell having had this exact model of Audi that this is a great performing car! The Quattro all-wheel drive system is phenomenal in snow and for aggressively tackling turns. The interior is extremely well appointed, luxurious and functional... including the MMI which is substantially easier to use than BMW's or Mercedes! The seating space in comfortable for four adults, but formed enough to be sporty... and the trunk space is great! This is by far the best mix of European luxury and performance in four door sedan!

This S-line 2008 A6 was well maintained and came in mint condition. It drives very well and gets good gas mileage for my commute. My wife comments on how comfortable it is to both drive and be driven in. It handles quite well and provides enough power for some fun. The interior styling is great and the entertainment system is amazing.

Love this car. I have an s-line FWD and regularly get over 34 MPG on the highway. I drive around 110 miles per day, so this is important to me. Ok, the car is fun too. If you need to stomp on it, you'll be going 90 mph in a blink.

I have owned the 2008 A6 4.2 with S line for over 6 months and love the way it drives. It is quick and smooth as silk. The music system (MMI) is awesome along with the Navigation. I added a usb connector to the MMI cable and now can hook up any usb drive to listen to music. Love the power and the option to use the manual/sports drive.

Hidden Gem

by from Houston, TX on March 31, 2009

Great Car; fun to drive; more value for money than Mercedes or BMW; more pazazz than Infiniti. MMI a bit confusing; better gas mileage than expected with CVT.
