Introduction

Considered buying a Mercedes E-class or a BMW 5-series, but ended up buying the A6 because it combined all of the sport of the BMW with the luxury of the Mercedes....to this day (150,000 miles later) I don't ever regret that decision!

Why the 2006 Audi A6?

Handling

I live in New England and spend quite a bit of time on the road in the winter time....this car handles unbelievably in the snow! Easily the best I have driven under these conditions!

Ride smoothness

My 2006 A6 Quattro 3.2L is incredibly comfortable to drive over long distances.

Fuel economy

It's hard to imagine such a powerful luxury car can get such great gas mileage. On a recent trip to Montreal I calculated my fuel economy to be somewhere in the 27mpg range....incredible!

Why Not the 2006 Audi A6?

Price or payments

My only complaint with this vehicle is the cost to maintain / repair it. Oil change is $100 due to the 7.5 quarts of Synthetic oil. I have had to replace both front wheel bearings on the car at about $320 per side. Also had the steering rack go a year ago which was $3,500 to replace....I guess that when you buy an expensive car you should go into it with your eyes wide open understanding that it will be expensive to maintain.
