Had the car for a week now. Car is excellent on motorway cruise, very quite and composed. The interior quality is superb and can not be faulted. Electronic parking brake takes some getting used to too, i'm still grabbing for fresh air when I park. The lease hire deal on this car is great value and what was once a rare sight on the road is due to become a more common one with "lower bracket" execs (such as I)snapping up the current offers.
I opted for the MMI high with DVD sat nav and its the best i've come across in any car, I also added the rear parking sensors an absolute must for this behemoth. I do wish i'd added the front sensors because to be honest, I've no idea where the car ends at the moment.
Other than that its basic spec and still draws a lot of attention. The looks of the car are outstanding.
If I have one criticism its the seats. I'm a tall guy that likes to ride high in my car. I have the basic manual seats, They jack up, tilt back and slide forward, like any chinese car!!!....if I have them jacked up too high it feels like i'm sliding forward towards the pedals...not best please with that but found a spot i'm comfy in all the same. An improvement would be to give them a tilt function. 4* in the cabin for that.
All round top class motor, beats the x' type i've just had hands down. Road noise and long distance comfort a major plus. Would reccomend to anyone.
The 3.0 TDI Quattro is a comfortable car, but it doesn't handle well going into corners compared to the BMW 5 Series that I now own.
The Audi broke down after only three months and was away at an Audi centre for over two weeks. When I got the car back a few months later, the same problem reoccurred. That was when I sold it and bought a BMW 530d M, which is a much more satisfactory car.
You get more pleasure out of driving this car and it's much more reliable. I also think that the Audi is overpriced for what you get.
The only negative point about this car is the firm ride. Otherwise, it gives excellent fuel economy for such a large car.
It gives a great drive on the motorway, where the majority of my 50,000 miles a year are spent. I definitely recommend it.
This car is extremeley comfortable on the motorway, but some there are some disappointing features to the 2.0-litre D S-line version which I own.
Be careful with this model, as the suspension rubs on the wheel arches when you load up the boot. This car does not like most multi-storey car parks, as the wheels rub when you go up or down a ramp.
When questioned about this, the main Audi dealer in Carlisle (where I purchased the car) confessed that this was a problem with all of the S-line models, and had forced him to sell his own A6 for a different model.

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…
