The Ultimate Sleeper Sedan
August 11, 2010
I have owned an RS6 for several years, and I can say without a doubt that it is the greatest car I have ever driven. The RS6 is a comfortable car, but I would recommend to one to not take it on a long road trip; the RS6 features a hard suspension. However, this car does extraordinarily well on tracks granted there are long straightaways, because this beast was made for speed. The RS6 is a road-rocket that, in 2010, still keeps up with newer competitors, such as the BMW M5 & Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Also, for such a nose-heavy (and overall heavy) car, it performs well in terms of handling; its braking is also phenomenal. The interior is very nice, but it is now kind of outdated when compared to newer Audis; my 2010 S4 has at least four times as many features as my RS6. Nevertheless, having spent over $70,000 for my RS6 used, I will say that at current prices ($25,000-$35,000), this car is a bargain. Take note that maintenance is somewhat expensive out of warranty, but the RS6 is pretty much reliable; my RS6 developed a bad torque converter three months ago at 52,000 miles, and it cost over $6,000 to replace. Other than that, I would highly suggest this car to anyone who is looking for a rare super-sedan, or to anyone who wants a fun, fast, and safe car.
