I last wrote a review on the 18/01/09. So here is my update. Please do not buy the Audi A6. Like Daniel Pinders review, my car drinks more oil than diesel. FACT. It goes in July (Thank God) What a shame as the car looks better than my wife, but unfortunatly is not as reliable. Im now looking at the Volvo V70 estate, reading the reviews on the Volvo puts the Audi to shame. I dont think Audi will thank me for writing this, but please be warned.
I have the 2.7tdi multi on an 06 plate. Good things, the interior is beautifully built and trouble free, boot is big, has handy hooks for shopping bags, and an (extra cost) cargo net with tie downs - very handy. It’s very comfortable to drive long distances and the 2.7 and multitronic are just so smooth and effortless, you’re never short of power
Down side the radio occasionally has a fit when you start the car, and there is no sound, an air valve caused a warning light to come on, replaced under warranty after two trips to the dealer. Tyre noise can be a problem on some surfaces. I often feel like something is going to go wrong, although not much does. Noticed today that the coolant level was very low for 1st time in 2 1/2 years. Service costs are outrageous in my opinion, £400+ for a service is a rip off. Dealer service is getting better after some constructive feedback from me. I can get 40mpg plus on a decent motorway run, long term 40,000 mile mixed average is 38mpg .
Options are expensive, some should be standard, the SatNav price is a joke at £1,800, buy a TomTom. MMI drive very easy to use, but why is the clock set menu buried in the radio set up? This is a car I like to drive and be in, but I don't feel passionate about it like some other cars I have owned. Next time it might be a Honda for the peace of mind.
The important things about this car are right, the cabin is simply brilliant there's plenty of space, this engine is great, the refinement is typical Audi and in my opinion better looking than the 5 series or similar Benz...Fantastic, get the 2.7tdi if you can afford it, I get about 37mpg roughly....the 2.0tdi hasn't quite got the poke in my opinion
2007 56 plate car, owned from new,Out of 42 vehicles owned this is the second worst. It stalls regularly, I cannot get comfortable, it is thirsty, uses lots of oil, section of dashboard coming adrift, paintwork to bonnet poor, has had engine management problems, coolant leak, sat nav gets confused, auto wipers have a mind of their own. Audi's now too common and overrated, resale values not good. On the positive side it looks okay, accomodation is good and boot space comodious. Two poor Audis now, no more!
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
I've had 6 VWs now including this one and it is a mixed bag. In no particular order the economy is poor despite the FSI badging and in town never…
Why is there so much whining about the rear sets? It's small - it's called a "mini" (hint). It didn't get any smaller after you bought it, so deal…
