I owned this car for less than a month and drove it three times putting just 210 miles after I purchased it used with 29,000 miles; it still has10 mo / 20,000 MFG warranty remaining on it. On my third trip going back to the Dealership to pickup my license plate, I got an EPC error light with an engine icon displayed on the dashboard; the car went from 70mph to 0 in less that three minutes, giving me enough time to exit and barely made it to a Seven 11 gas station where it died just as I pulled into a parking spot. It will not start when pressing the start button, it cranks but failed to start. I had it towed to the Dealership and it is still there after three days, they said that there are several issues, crank sensor, catalytic con.. etc,
I purchased a 2010 Audi A6 from Carmax in July 2011. I had been looking for the car for several weeks when one was located in So. Cal. They had the vehicle brought to Las Vegas and I purchased it after a test drive. The car looks fast and aggressive, while maintaining it's refinement...all while standing still. My car had the sport package on it (lowered suspecnsion, better traction, aggresive body moulding) and it drove as well as it looked. The car is very visually appealing and I was not disappointed by the real world street performance. The supercharged engine is really quiet, but it rumbles when you need/want it too. The car has excellent acceleration and the Quatro system is revolutionary when it comes to keeping the car on the road. It tracks amazingly well at all speeds and the car handles like it is on rails. Smooth, quick and fast! The interior is nothing short of amazing. All the controls are realistically laid out and the MMI interface is very user friendly and you won't need a PhD to operate it. The car is very clean on the inside and the interior does not distract from the driving experience. Gas mileage is excellent (I was coming from a Ford Expedition) even though premium fuel is a requirement. All in all this car is the very best of German engineering and it will convince you that American cars have some work to do. Highly recommended
The A6 Premium Plus has every convenience I can imagine. It has outstanding get-up-and-go power (turbo 2 liter), and handles like nothing I ever drove before. Plus, it's beautiful! There are not enough selections provided in the "Pros" section below. I would check almost everything on that list if allowed.
